What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a natural health and wellness system that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. The word Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words Ayur, meaning “life”, and Veda, meaning “knowledge” - an ancient holistic system centered and based on the five great elements to restore harmony and balance. Universal interconnectedness lies at the heart of Ayurveda. Coming to an understanding of our ideal state of balance (prakriti) which is our individual constitution and the subtle energies called (doshas) help us to understand our relationship with the environment, food, seasons and much more.
Immerse yourself in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda & Yoga in an idyllic setting and picturesque surroundings. The day will begin with Yoga in the lavender field with live music. Mary will guide you through a gentle yoga practice that emphasizes grounding, deep breathing and focusing your attention inward to prepare you for the day.
Ken Meyer, our guest musician, will accompany the postural practice with deep, soulful rhythms using a variety of percussion instruments. Using sounds of nature and it’s elements of life and stillness, Ken aims to create a unique background to aid the participant on their journey. Gongs, Native American drums, and instruments from around the world all come together to create a unique, sometimes otherworldly palette of sound.
Vibha's Ayurveda Workshop will teach you the concept behind the Ayurveda wellness that can support you in self-healing by learning to reduce stress, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, live consciously, and enjoy more sustainable energy. You will learn to listen to your body and discover how it can help you maintain healthy habits after the Retreat. Vibha will also show you how to incorporate specific spices into your diet with a live cooking demonstration. Later you will create your own Ayurveda Vision Board guided by Vibha.
Chef Ed Oliveira has created a delicious vegetarian lunch menu inspired by the Ayurvedic principles using fresh organic ingredients for you to enjoy.
Lunch Menu: Mixed Greens, Roasted Carrots, Sunflower Seeds, Radish, Ginger Carrot Dressing; Masala Roasted Tofu with Coconut Sauce; Basmati Rice with Peas, Raisins, Almonds; Ginger & Tumeric Roasted Vegetable Medley; Herb Roasted Chickpeas with Asparagus.
At the conclusion of the Retreat and after you have discovered more about Ayurveda and your body type/dosha, Mary will lead a guided meditation on how to modify to benefit your particular needs based on your dominant dosha type.
