The Wellspring of Kapha
Ayurveda-Inspired Cooking Class
Spring: The season of renewal and growth, awakens latent earth to all its potential. Spring is a time for a fresh start, cleansing and rejuvenating the body after Winter’s cold dormancy. It’s also a season when the awakening body may be beset by seasonal allergies, a sense of heaviness, lethargy.
It’s time to balance the Kapha dosha in this moist, fertile, warmer season with the appropriate diet to support lightness, dryness and the heat our metabolism requires, by emphasizing the proper tastes and cooking methods. Join us to explore the nourishment this beautiful season has to offer!
Recipes from the class will be emailed to you as a part of this program.
