Introducing: Saravat.

One aspect of this year’s Ayurvedic Spring Reset that I’m strongly emphasizing is skincare. Our skin is:

– the largest organ of the body
– our protective barrier from the elements
– an external indicator of our internal health.

Just like how we take care of the food we eat, Ayurveda teaches us to take care of what we put on our skin.

For several years I have made my own skin lotions and serums, sharing them with a few friends and clients – and with their encouragement, now I am going to share them with you!

I’m so excited to launch Saravat, my collection of Ayurvedic skincare rituals. Everything has been made according to Ayurvedic principles, and with lots of heartfelt purpose and intention. I’m starting off with just a few items, but plan to offer more as time goes on.

We are going to ease into things by having only local pick-up at the upcoming Reset workshop and set dates (the Saravat website will have more details) – but shipping options will come shortly.

Please visit my online shop by clicking here!

I hope that these Saravat formulas support you in your journey towards healing and well-being.

Namaste,
Adrienne

Ayurvedic nutritional counselling – book today!

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!

Lighting the Fire

I am honoured to be asked to teach again at the Lighting the Fire conference (May 10-12th, 2017, 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.  I will be leading two breathing (pranayama) workshops on the morning of May 12th.  As a simple, accessible form of yoga, breathing practices can be a way to work with anxiety, stress, insomnia, and depression.  Basic breathing practices are easy to learn and to incorporate into day-to-day routine.
