A change in seasons is the best time to cleanse the body: when the environment is in a state of transition, it encourages similar transformation within ourselves. This fall, the Ayurvedic Diet Cleanse Workshop will be on October 19th, 2-4 pm, at Yoga Public (Winnipeg, MB, Canada).
During the workshop, we will ground ourselves in studying the fundamental principles of Ayurveda, set our intentions for doing a 12-day cleanse and discuss its parameters. Taking simple but nourishing foods gives the body time to detoxify and re-establish a state of harmony and stability. During the cleanse, participants will have access to a private blog hosted by Adrienne which will have daily updates of recipes, philosophy and encouragement. This cleansing practice is an opportunity to purify the body, clarify the mind, and reawaken the spirit! No previous knowledge of Ayurveda is required to participate, and students of all dietary persuasions are welcome (specific concerns can be discussed privately with Adrienne).
Registration for this workshop can be completed online at www.yogapublic.com or by visiting the studio (280 Fort St, 204.947.9642). Please consider registering early; this workshop tends to sell out.
I am so pleased to announce that I will be preparing the meals for a silent vipassana weekend retreat with Jonathan Austman at the Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre in Beausejour, Manitoba, October 3-5, 2014! I am really looking forward to cooking nourishing and calming food for our students as they endeavour to deepen their practice. Registration and more details to come soon!
To heal the world, we have to heal ourselves first. Please join Lorna Parashin and I as we guide a special practice to support a global fundraiser for the Fierce Grace Foundation, started by One Yoga. All proceeds will go towards supporting youth-oriented yoga programs. I will start us off with Kirtan, and then Lorna will lead us through a lovely vinyasa flow practice.
The donation-based event will be on Saturday July 19th, 5:00-6:30 pm, at Yoga Public.
I hope you join us!
We have had the wonderful opportunity to lead a few Kirtan practices in the past few months at the Dragon Arts Collective and Rudolf Rocker Cultural Centre. Thank you to all who came and shared their energy and voices in this beautiful practice. We are planning to take a little break for the rest of the summer…though if you hear the echo of a harmonium in a park, feel free to stop by – otherwise, we will see you in the fall!
