Using Ayurveda's Pillars of Lifestyle and Diet to Move Gracefully into the Fall Season

with Lisa Jeck, RYT

ayurveda 2Sunday, October 26, 2:00-5:00pm
Blue Moon Studio, Exeter, NH

The teachings of Ayurveda make us aware of nature around us and nature within us and we try our best to align with the seasons by what we do and how we eat. Diet and Lifestyle are keys to moving gracefully through the waters of life and as we transition from summer to fall, we are particularly susceptible to having all the excesses of the hot season manifest in our bodies.

Thankfully there are ways to ease this special time of year. Seasonal cleansing offers us a way to remove what does not serve us and bring in what does.In this workshop we will discuss how to cleanse our lives with pacifying rituals. We will talk about simplifying our physical space and our emotional space. We will dwell in the topic of food, how we eat, why we eat, what we eat.

The afternoon will culminate with a simple meal provided by Lisa and enjoyed in community. Recipes will be shared and group support offered if you wish to take this version of a cleanse into autumn lives.

with Sharon Fellows Lamb, RYT

anjali mudraSunday, November 2, 3:00-5:00pm
Blue Moon Studio, Exeter, NH

Thanksgiving is, for many of us, the tip of the iceberg of holiday stress. While we look forward to the holidays each year, and to the time spent with loved ones, we often get caught up in the stress of travel, house guests, preparations, and shopping.

Take some time out of your busy schedule to re-connect with the spirit of the holidays. Through guided visualizations, breath work, pose practice, and meditation, we will bring awareness to the aspects of our life for which we are grateful, as well as to the opportunities for growth that exist in situations we may find challenging. By cultivating gratitude in the present moment - with all of its imperfections - we prepare to greet the holidays with a sense of contentment and loving awareness.

Blue Moon Studio, Exeter

The days are now growing longer, and those of us who struggle with our darker moods might benefit from the opportunity to experience a few gentle yoga postures and mindfulness techniques.

Yoga postures and breathing practices fortify our bodies to withstand the many stresses of our everyday lives. Yoga philosophy (to be present without judging, for instance) and yoga psychology (what gets in the way of you realizing your most centered and most serene self) offer many lessons for the mind and spirit as we transition to the fall and winter seasons.
