Are you Ayurveda curios?
Ayurveda, the ancient East Indian science of longevity, teaches that a balanced digestive fire, known as "agni", is one of the most important factors in maintaining your health and immune system. When your digestive system is functioning properly, you are better able to metabolize, absorb, and assimilate all of the important nutrients from food, so that it may nourish your body's tissues and cells. This class will explore how to achieve a proper diet through Ayurvedic Principles. Perhaps even more importantly, we will explore how to enhance your body's ability to properly digest, absorb, and assimilate what you eat. Learning how to eat for your unique constitution is one of the foundations of Ayurveda - and it can be a lot of fun!
