Join me on Sunday January 21st, 2018 (3:45-5 pm) at the Snowflake Wellness Festival in Winnipeg! I will be doing a creative workshop discussing the healing methods of Ayurveda. Check out the workshop’s description below:
Ayurveda: A Life of Balance, Inner-healing, and Self-Love
Through an emphasis on addressing an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional aspects, Ayurveda is a traditional healing method for achieving wellness and harmony. Considered the sister science of yoga, it offers the methods to guide our path towards inner healing in a way that is sustainable, rooted, and holistic.
One of the most important principles of Ayurveda is that of balance; one aspect of balance is the interplay between ourselves and the environment we live in. Through this workshop, discover daily self-care practices and considered cooking and food choices that enable us to connect deeper with ourselves and the world around us. Unearth simple, logical wisdom that enables resilience, well-being, and self-love.
Join Adrienne Shum (MSc, ALC) for an inspiring discussion on how the grounded, wise system of Ayurveda can be applied to your unique needs and lifestyle, and propel your journey towards wholeness.
Personalised counselling is an ideal way to deepen your knowledge of Ayurveda and to learn how to apply its principles to your individual needs and lifestyle. A 60-minute Initial Consultation is tailored to attend to your specific concerns, such as designing an Ayurvedic meal plan or cleanse that suits your unique constitution, addressing specific health concerns, or establishing long-term habits that promote balance and longevity.
Having both a certification in Ayurvedic Counselling and a Masters in Food Science, I am most interested in merging traditional healing practices with contemporary research to provide a modern, holistic approach to food, cooking and nutrition. Ayurveda emphasizes the harmony of an individual’s physical, mental and emotional beings for achieving optimal health. As the complementary system to yoga, it is a great way to support and further your work on the yoga mat or meditation cushion. Discover how yoga and Ayurveda can integrate into daily life, particularly when it comes to the kitchen and dinner table.
Take the opportunity to work with me and learn how Ayurveda can support your journey towards balance and wholeness. Contact me here to book your consult today!
Spring is a season of change, and thus the perfect time to inspire change in ourselves! Join me for an Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse at Yoga Public on Sunday, April 2nd (3-5 pm, $55+GST). Learn traditional diet and self-care techniques that help support lasting changes for your unique body-mind composition. As always, I will host a private blog for cleansers to access daily recipes, philosophy and support. Join me for this transformative practice and invest in your health!
I am honoured to be asked to teach yoga at the Lighting the Fire conference (May 11-13th, 2016, Winnipeg) hosted by the Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre. As a gathering for discussing approaches to Indigenous education, honouring First Nation culture, and ensuring student success, a piece of that puzzle is drawing attention to the self-care of educators and leaders. Learning to take care of ourselves is the first step to learning how to take care of others, and yoga or any other awareness practice can play a pivotal role in cultivating physical, mental and spiritual health. Maybe I will see you there!
