Making Peace with Food

Do you struggle with digestive challenges, PMS or fatigue?
Would you like to have a more peaceful relationship with your body and your food?
In this class, you'll learn about Ayurveda, an ancient system of holistic medicine that offers practical guidance for healthier living through attention to our daily habits. Ayurveda teaches that each person's unique mind-body constitution shapes what creates health for her and what leads to disease. For example, a woman may naturally have a tendency to feel cold, dry and ungrounded. If she eats mostly cold, light foods like salads, crackers, granola bars and dried fruit and she is constantly on the go, she may begin to experience more anxiety, worry, dry skin, constipation and insomnia.

Modern life is stressful, and this ever-present stress can take a major toll on women's health in particular. Living out of sync with the body's natural rhythms often leaves us feeling physically depleted and disconnected from our true needs and desires. I believe that by incorporating supportive practices around food, rest and activity into our daily lives, we can free up this stuck or scattered energy and be more of who we really want to be in the world.
