Summer: Cooling and Calming Practices for a Stress-Free Holiday Season
In a series of seasonal workshops with Kate Smith Jamison (www.theyogaandayurvedaclinic.com) delve into the ancient practice of Ayurveda, the holistic healing science for the body – sister to Yoga’s healing science for the mind. Meaning science (veda) of life (ayur) Ayurveda takes a personalised, preventative approach to optimal health and longevity in harmony with nature’s pulse.
During each four-hour workshop, discover how to add seasonal rhythm to your yogasana, pranayama and meditation practices, and gain a better understanding of your own unique constitution. Learn how to follow the flow of nature, and weave diet and lifestyle principles throughout the year to live a healthier – and consequently happier - life. Understand better the elemental shifts in the seasons and the imbalances they may bring, smoothing your transition from season to season.
As we head towards the summer solstice and nature’s growth peaks for the year, this workshop turns to Yoga and Ayurveda practices aimed at helping us relax, destress and surrender to the longer days and (if we are lucky….) warmer temperatures of summer. Two calming and lunar focused yoga practices are weaved with Ayurvedic tips to stay cool and calm both in moments when we can “overheat” during the months when the fire element dominates, and to help balance tendencies towards stress or intensity in our lives. End this workshop with a summer inspired lunch based on Ayurvedic principles.
A £40 investment for each workshop includes ending with delicious food based on Ayurvedic principles
