Many of us are well aware of the importance of self-care, but in our fast-paced world, self-care often becomes yet another thing on our to-do list. With full inboxes and busy social lives, taking time to create meaningful rituals for oneself can feel like something for another day or time. Yet, Ayurvedic wisdom shows us that ritual is what transforms the mundane to the sacred, enriching and enlivening even the smallest action.
Feeling tired? Overworked? Out of balance? Poor nutrition, stress, lack of exercise and various other lifestyle factors affect the body’s ability to maintain a delicate balance of hormones, eventually resulting in an imbalance that depletes mind & body. In this workshop we will explore how hormones respond to day-to-day habits and delve into simple diet tips and herbal recommendations, stress-management techniques, and natural relaxation tools to help you feel both rested and energetic at any age.
This four-day intensive with Sachi will cover the core concepts of Ayurveda, specifically its applications for asana, pranayama, mantra, and the subtle body. The course will provide you with a solid foundation from which to apply Ayurveda to all aspects of life. Though not limited to yoga teacher-trainees and active teachers, this course will emphasize how to bring these ancient teachings to students, including customizing yoga classes to be dosha-balancing and teaching seasonal flows as well as classes that are designed by time of day.
Many of us are well aware of the importance of self-care, but in a fast-paced world, it has become increasingly difficult to find the time to do it. With a never-ending to-do list in front of us, taking any time for oneself may start to feel like a luxury. Daily rituals are a simple way to start carving out that headspace time to keep the body in tune with its natural cycles and free of disease.
In this workshop we will explore specific practices that best support your individual rhythms. In understanding your dosha (mind-body type) and how it's reflected in your daily routines and yoga practice, you will leave with clear techniques to best serve your unique nature for a lifetime of health and healing on and off the mat.
Join me and co-host SuperGirls SF to explore simple Ayurvedic practices that support our overall wellbeing, even if you have just a few spare minutes a day.

Julie and Sachi invite you to share in a new experience on the mat and in the kitchen. Applying Ayurvedic principles to asana, they have created a workshop series to help you better understand what it means to practice--and eat--in alignment with your unique mind-body constitution (dosha) as well as the rhythms of the seasons.
Designed to help you navigate this recurrent shift, you will first be guided through an asana practice created to help the body better harmonize with the season's rhythmic cycle. Afterwards, we will all gather for a cooking demonstration while enjoying a seasonal Ayurvedic juice or tea. You will learn how the doshas and qualities of each season govern the body's constitution, and how integrating Ayurvedic principles into your diet can promote a healthy and healing mind-body connection.
