Ayurveda is an ancient holistic practice of medicine dating back to India over 5000 years ago. The recorded scriptures, known as Vedas, outline very clearly, routines and regimes we can adopt in our day and throughout the seasons in our life, to remain in balance as our world fluctuates around us.
Viewing food as our medicine, Ayurveda offers knowledge on how best to eat for our individual needs, and outlines principles for how to keep our digestive fire, known as agni, burning brightly. With plenty of research now coming to light about how integral gut health is to our entire well-being, especially mental health, now more than ever it’s important to know how best to nourish ourselves - starting with what we are putting into our bodies for fuel.
On the evening Phillipa will explore:
> Ayurveda 101 and a brief history of its origins
> AGNI - How to maintain good digestive fire (agni) and why digestion is considered the most important aspect for maintaining optimal health according to Ayurveda
> GUNAS - Qualities of the universe, and how we can view food through this lens
> RITUCHARYA - Awareness of seasons – and importance of seasonal eating
> DINACHARYA - Establishing daily routine and self-care
You will also be treated to a light Ayurvedic supper (vegan and gluten free).
