According to Ayurveda - one of the oldest healing systems in the world - Spring is the time of year that kapha dosha becomes aggravated. When kapha dosha is aggravated we can feel sluggish, heavy, congested, lethargic and can have a hard time letting go. This workshop will give an overview of what Ayurveda is and how we can use its wisdom to invigorate, detox and lighten up during the Spring. We will talk about the nutrition, herbs, daily routine and practices that are best for feeling energized and light during this time of year. Expect an hour of discussion about Ayurveda, a 45 minute kapha pacifying yoga flow and 15 minutes to ask questions and try out some Ayurvedic food and drink! If you want to find more energy and feel lighter during the rainy Spring, then this workshop is for you!
The New Year is a time for change and starting anew, and yoga can help us find ways to stick to our new plans. Keep your resolutions going strong with a lovely flow class focused on strength, perseverance, and self-care. This class will focus on holding postures and explore new ways to experience postures we do all of the time. Joel Miller will accompany the class on guitar and there will be harmonium and chanting. The class will leave you refreshed and ready to conquer whatever the New Year brings your way.
Join me for a heart opening class to cultivate gratitude (& your appetite) before enjoying your Thanksgiving Day with friends and family! We will work on opening up the heart, flowing with grace, and chanting along with the beautiful sounds of the harmonium. For more information or to sign up check out Imagine Yoga Studio. I hope to see you and your loved ones there!
Autumn is nature's last hurrah before entering its decomposition phase. It is a vibrant, bustling, colorful season that brings vata dosha, one of the three constitutions in Ayurveda, out in full force. With an excess of vata dosha comes dryness (yes, even in the Pacific Northwest!), coolness, spaciness, anxiety, hyperactivity, joint pain, irregular appetite, and other issues associated with the air element.
This workshop will give you great information about the wisdom of Ayurveda and teach you how to notice when vata is being aggravated. You will learn what foods to consume to keep you grounded and centered, what essential oils and herbs are best and what type of yoga practice is best for this time of year. We will also practice some vata pacifying yoga and end by eating delicious vata pacifying snacks!

According to Ayurveda – one of the oldest healing systems in the world – summer is the season pitta dosha becomes aggravated. There are three doshas, or constitutions, in Ayurveda – vata, pitta, and kapha. Each person is a different combination of all three (usually with one prevailing), and each season has a dosha associated with it. When pitta dosha is aggravated we are more intense, critical and prone to burnout. This workshop will teach you to stay cool and refreshed in the midst of summer heat and activity. We will cover dinacharya (daily routine), how to find a nourishing and relaxing yoga practice, and what foods to eat to keep you cool (with tasty samples). This is a great opportunity to learn more about Ayurveda, yoga’s amazing and healing sister science.
This 2-hour workshop will include a 30-minute discussion on Ayurveda, the doshas, and how to tell if pitta dosha is out of balance. 1 hour of a nourishing, grounding, and calming yoga practice. Followed by 30 minutes of questions/answers and food sampling.
Option 1 – Attend only the 2-hour workshop on June 14. Cost: $30.00
