Sunday 10/11/19 – At Saffron Cottage
Summer offers images of long, light sun-filled days; lazy afternoons, sipping cool drinks, spending time outdoors and socializing. Ayurveda (the ancient sister science to yoga) tells us the qualities of summer are hot, sharp, and penetrating. This class will explore the Ayurvedic dosha of Pitta- our fire and water qualities and how this dosha affects the body, mind, & spirit during its peak season.
12:45pm – Welcome chai and introduction.
1-2:30pm – Robyn Mourie, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Practitioner, will show you how to recognise Pitta imbalances, provide notes for an Ayurveda Food Chart for summer and together we will mix up some relaxation and recovery Ayurvedic poultices.
2:30-3pm – Ayurvedic afternoon teas and nibbles.
3-4:30pm – Wendy Reynolds, Nidra/Meditation Yoga Instructor will end your day with a chill-out guided Nidra meditation. We will work further with the qualities of water (fluidity) and fire (warmth/colour), practicing moving between the two whilst anchoring to the stillness that is a constant beneath life’s fluctuations.
$105 pp Includes all materials and afternoon tea.
