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.
Engage in a transformative process that is based on the healing traditions of Ayurveda and yoga to restore balance, wellness and clarity. Find a deeper connection to yourself and realign with what nourishes and serves you.
As complementary practices, Ayurveda and yoga seek to address the well-being of an individual’s body, mind and spirit. According to Ayurveda, the change of seasons is the natural time to reset ourselves, boost Agni (metabolism), and remove Ama (toxins).
The 2-hour workshop lays the groundwork for understanding the principles of Ayurveda and covers the methodology of a 5-day cleanse. Thereafter, online content (recipes, guided meditation recordings, and more!) will be made accessible exclusively to workshop participants to support them on their continuing journey. For each day, participants will be presented a practice (sadhana) to incorporate into their daily routine. Discover practices that are sustainable, simple, and restorative.
This is an opportunity to take time for ourselves and listen carefully to the feedback that our bodies provide. The focus will be on integrating Ayurvedic eating principles (including recipes), mindfulness, and self-reflection to help reset the body-mind as we move into a new season.
This practice is excellent for both beginners and seasoned pros; find support and community in embarking on this journey together. If you have participated in a cleanse with Adrienne before, please note that this is an evolved format. Adrienne continually strives to advance her understanding of Ayurveda, and this updated program reflects deeper insights.
Details: Sunday April 15th, 3-5 pm, $55+GST, at Yoga Public

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.
