An important principle of Ayurveda is ritucharya, living in alignment with the seasons. We are now heading into late summer and the natural world around is lush, ripe, and sultry. The sun rises early and sets late. The air is hot, moist, and soft. Flowers are in full bloom. Come and learn how we can delight in the sensuousness of the season while also keeping ourselves in balance through foods and lifestyle practices that cool, temper, and calm the body, mind, and spirit. Stay after the workshop to enjoy an outdoor shower in the garden!
