Thank you to those that came to the first instalment of our “Putting the FULL in Mindfulness” Workshop series! I still can’t believe that we sold out; I’m so glad that everyone is excited about exploring how eating well can support living well!
If you didn’t get the chance to make it to the first one, don’t miss out on the second workshop, “DIY Kitchen Staples” on Saturday November 26th (3:30-5 pm, $35, at Yoga Public). Angie Pringle and I will continue to explore the empowerment of healthy eating and living. Taking an in-depth look at our pantry staples, we will investigate the benefits/drawbacks of store-bought food products and how easily you can make your own versions of these with simple and wholesome recipes. Attendance at a previous workshop is not necessary, though those of you that have come to the first workshop will hopefully find that the second one will deepen your understanding of Ayurveda and mindfulness through food. Hope to see you at one or all of the workshops!
Spring is just around the corner – and with a change in seasons, it is an ideal time to inspire change in one’s body and mind. Join Adrienne for an Ayurvedic Diet Cleanse workshop (Sunday April 3rd, 3-5 pm, $50, Yoga Public) and learn about Ayurveda, a 5000-year-old tradition of healing. Learn how to:
– apply the fundamental principles of Ayurveda through a 12-day cleanse,
– discover diet and lifestyle practices suitable for your unique physical and mental needs,
– cultivate deeper self-awareness and harmony, and
– detoxify the body, refresh the mind and reawaken the spirit!
During the cleanse, Adrienne will host a blog for practitioners to receive daily updates of recipes, philosophy and encouragement. No previous knowledge of Ayurveda is required to participate. Register at Yoga Public (280 Fort St, 204 947 9642, www.yogapublic.com).
David and I will be leading a yoga/kirtan workshop at Snowflake Winter Wellness Festival, Winnipeg’s first full-day urban retreat on Sunday January 24th! We are excited to bring you a workshop that explores the origin and goal of breathing exercises through the practice of gentle yoga asana and the chanting practice of Kirtan. The breath is a powerful tool that we can use to balance our bodies and minds, and mastery of the breath transcends all styles of yoga practice.
We hope you can join us as we sync breath, movement and voice to the beat of a drum (and a harmonium!) No experience is necessary, and the workshop is suitable for all levels of practitioners. Check out the Snowflake website to see the other amazing workshops that will be happening, and sign up for “The Power of Breath: A Yoga and Kirtan Workshop” here!
Thanks so much to everyone that came to the Om Nom Nom Nourish workshop at the Prairie Yogi studio this weekend! It was so lovely to share the practices of yoga and Ayurveda with you. If you are looking for the recipes for the Winter Sun Granola Bars and the Pumpkin Ginger Cranberry Snack Bars that I made for the workshop, please visit my food blog at www.twohollowlegs.wordpress.com.
Until next time, may you keep eating and living well!
