A facelift!

I got a facelift – a digital one! Welcome to the new and improved www.adrienneshum.com. There is still much of the old good stuff here, along with some new treats:

– check out the new menu (so hopefully it’s easier to find what you want)
– check out the kirtan/free offerings page for a link to our free recordings available on the Insight Timer app
– have a look at the resources page for a list of my favourite books on yoga, Ayurveda, food, and more.

Enjoy! xx

Ayurveda workshop at Snowflake Festival in Winnipeg!

***UPDATE: registration for this workshop is full.***

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.

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!
