Winter Solstice Kirtan

Join David and I for an evening of Kirtan, a meditative practice of cultivating mindfulness through sound and breath. We will be doing our last kirtan of 2018 at Yoga Public on Sunday December 16th (6-7:30 pm, $20). The winter solstice is December 21st, so as we approach the darkest day of the year, let us join together and share our inner light.

Kirtan uses mantras to develop awareness and equanimity. Mantras are short repetitive phrases, and while they might seem esoteric at first, we are all already repeating mantras to ourselves – but usually they are negative things like, “I’m not worthy” or “I don’t belong.” We need to hit the reset button, and practice helps with that. Recalibrate yourself with traditional mantras that call in compassion, love, and understanding.

All are welcome and no experience is necessary! Enjoy the opportunity to be transformed through the power of live music, storytelling, and community in an intimate setting. All you need is to come prepared to sit (chairs will be available) and soak it all in.

Ayurvedic Spring Reset!

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

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!
