Originating in India more than 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda is considered to be one of the world’s the oldest healing sciences. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means, “The Science of Life” and encourages the maintenance of health by living in tune with nature. Through this immersive workshop, Stephanie Wright - an Ayurvedic chef - will share how you can use herbs as your medicine to make personalized elixirs to keep you cool and calm during the summer season. We’ll review the basics of the three doshas, or constitutions, and how each interacts with the pitta dosha that’s dominant in summertime; share nutrition and self-care guidelines for balancing pitta; and create delicious drinks that will bring you to the ultimate state of chill even when the weather is hot.
