11 & 12 May / 17 & 18 Aug / 07 & 08 Dec @ For Balance, Epsom – Surrey
Sattva is known as purity so food that is sattvic is pure, clean and wholesome. It gives life, strength, energy, courage and self-determination therefore giving us more than the physical requirements. It is a carrier of prana (the life force) that also effects our consciousness. During this weekend we will be exploring this concept in relation to both Yogic and Ayurvedic diet. We will also look at the Ayurvedic concept of the six tastes of sweet, salty, sour, bitter, pungent and astringent with special reference to its’ association to the doshas and its energetic and the post-digestive effect it has on the tissues.
You will learn how to plan and cook well balanced, nutritious, vegetarian meals to balance the doshas, improve digestion and metabolism, learn the therapeutic use of spices, wheat and meat alternatives, soothe the mind and rejuvenate the senses. A diet that nurtures the body and calms the mind and emotions.
