Ayurvedic experts will share how seasonal eating can be used as your medicine to keep you balanced as we transition from spring into summer.
Ayurveda is considered to be the oldest healing science as it originated more than 5,000 years ago. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means, “The Science of Life” and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Through this workshop, Ayurvedic experts will share how seasonal eating can be used as your medicine to keep you balanced as we transition from spring into summer. Seasonal snacks made with seasonal produce from Local Roots as well as a guide on lifestyle and dietary recommendations, will keep you cool & calm during the summer season.

• An intro into to the Ayurvedic method including a quiz to ‘discover your dosha’
