We are so thrilled and honored to host Bretton Keating and her Introduction to Ayurvedic Cooking workshop! Ayurveda actually translates to a “science of life” and is often referred to as the sister science of yoga. It is an essential part of the yoga practice, fusing a fully integrated mind-body health system. Due to the magnitude of the effect food has on our bodies and lives, my teacher, Yogrishi Vishvketu, says that our yoga practices actually begins in the kitchen! Learn why in this workshop fusing movement, meditation, and food! Bretton, an Ayurvedic Cooking graduate of the Turiya Wellness Center in Mysore, India, will cover concepts such as doshas (body types), how to find your dosha, the characteristics of 15 commonly used spices, along with five recipes.
Learn more about Bretton below and join us on Saturday, March 3 from 2-4:30pm.
