Ayurveda and the Seasons

Winter Flows to Spring – Time to Flourish!

Spring is coming! Winter’s cold and heaviness is almost behind us. From the Ayurvedic perspective, it’s Kapha season up ahead! Time to invite in all the joys of uprising spring warmth and new growth. We adapt our heavier winter diet to revitalize and support our body-mind with a Kapha-balancing menu.

Join Chef Cathryn Pethick for a cooking demonstration featuring foods that will lighten and refresh our energy for the season of flourishing!
