Fall into Autumn – Ayurvedic Wisdom (DAY RETREAT)

Fall into Autumn – Ayurvedic Wisdom (DAY RETREAT)

About This Day Retreat:

Immerse yourself in the ancient art and science of Ayurveda (science of life), the oldest traditional medical system still thriving today, beautiful, and more relevant than ever.  Indulge in a full day of nourishing Ayurvedic practices, yoga and rituals inspired by the onset of Fall.

Ayurveda is all about balance, restoring and maintaining wellness throughout the seasons of the year, and the seasons of your life.  Learn about balancing your Dosha (innate imbalances that can lead to illness) and some natural practices of self-care. Late Autumn/winter is Vata season. We ditch the fiery temps and humidity of Pitta season and shift our diets and practices into a more grounding and warming, slower paced way of being. Just as nature prepares to hibernate, so must we. Explore nurturing ways to balance your Vata Dosha within-the autumn of your life: with energy and ease.

You’ll enjoy Doshic yoga, breathwork and meditation, and a fresh and delicious Ayurvedic lunch, snacks and drinks;  all infused with the energy and majesty of the Ganaraska River and forest.  Some fun takeaways are included, as well as a manual with some theory, explanations, instructions, and recipes for self care.

A committed and life-long student of Yoga and Ayurveda…and many things in between; this road has taken me from experimental painting and sculpture at OCAD to a certified Pastry Chef at George Brown College,  to operating a successful wellness practice for many years in Orono. When the time was ripe, I got serious about yoga and earned my CYT-200, and am nearing completion of my 300 hr certification,  adding in many workshops, retreats, and immersions to enrich my teaching skills and unique approach.   I feel good about designing classes and retreats that are as comfortable as they are creative, while being mindful that they don’t have to be fancy to be meaningful. We can’t always be our best selves, but through the practice of yoga- we can all be better together.  ~ Marci
