Ayurvedic Lifestyle Class ๑ Each Month a Different Theme
with Suze Retera

Translated simply as ‘knowledge of life’, Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic philosophy. Ayurveda shows you how to live a healthy, wholesome and more fulfilled life by balancing your mind, body and spirit. You are at the core of Ayurveda; the individual, and your unique set of physical, mental and spiritual characteristics - known as dosha in Ayurvedic practice.

By taking your dominant dosha(s), Ayurveda offers insights into which foods, herbs, and lifestyle activities will enhance the quality of your life, and which ones won’t. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help you stay vibrant and healthy while realizing your full human potential.

Ayurveda is the age old Indian science of health and can be seen as the sister of yoga. They compliment each other and are build on many of the same principles and knowledge.

Living in the city, leading busy lives in a fast changing world can be challenging. When you have a Vata constitution or a Vata imbalance this fast pase lifestyle can make you feel ungrounded, confused, overwhelmed and insecure. Ayurveda and yoga offer you tools and insights to recognise which parts of your life create too much Vata and how you can easily create more balance. 

In this class you will learn more about the Vata dosha, the symptoms of a Vata imbalance and how you can make changes in your daily life and diet that will support you during stressful time or times with lots of changes. Besides theory Suze will guide you through a Vata balancing yoga practice and yoga nidra, giving you all the tools you need to offer yourself some grounding self care. 


KAPHA BALANCING PRACTICES & LIFESTYLE
Saturday March 31st from 16:30-18:00
Tickets: http://bit.ly/2yfInRT

With the Winter slowly turning into Spring we get to enjoy cold days alternating with more gentle days and rain. The frozen ground becomes soft and muddy again.

Where Vata is dominant in the early stages of the Winter with windy and stormy days, during the tail of Winter and the beginning of Spring, Kapha takes over. The ground is softening and becoming fertile again, we can expect more rain and nature is getting ready to rebuild. Trees are sprouting new leafs and flowers coming out of the ground as nature comes back to life. These days can make you feel a bit more heavy and sluggish, as we are waking up from our ‘winter sleep’. It can be hard to get up in the morning, we might feel more tired than usual and feel less motivated. This class will offer you tips to balance the Kapha elements with your daily routines, food choices and physical practices. Of course you get to experience a Kapha balancing practice too so wear a yoga outfit!

BALANCING THE TRANSFORMATIVE FIRE WITHIN ๑PITTA BALANCING AYURVEDIC LIFESTYLE & YOGA CLASS
Saturday June 2nd from 16:30-18:00
Tickets: http://bit.ly/2AXVsSb

With the Kapha elements still very present in Spring time, we slowly start to move to towards the Summer, which means Pitta is becoming more dominant. Pitta dosha, which combines the elements fire and water, is a beautiful force that helps you transform and get things done. But too much Pitta can make you a little too hot headed or even burn you out.

In this lifestyle class you will learn more about the qualities of the Pitta dosha, how to recognize them in the food you eat, the activities you do and your surroundings, and how you can use them in your advantage. We will focus on yoga practices that help you to keep Pitta balanced, especially in Summer time, along with dietary and lifestyle tips.
Note: Please wear yoga clothes since we will be practicing asana and you can bring a pen and notebook if you like to make notes
