As seasons change, so too does the environment around us. And as organisms inextricably bound to our ecosystem, we will inevitably feel that shift as well.
I have long been devoted to seasonality as a philosophy and I've found certain practices that help me embrace those internal changes throughout the year. Now, I'll be sharing what I've cultivated with you- my Ayurvedic rituals, herbal remedies and self care practices. In addition, Tabitha Rose, a yoga instructor and seasonal chef, will share her knowledge of yoga, wellness, and cooking high vibrational meals.
We'll kick things off with a retreat to Joshua Tree for the Spring Equinox on March 23rd-25th, offering you three days filled with communal meals, music, yoga, and a workshop on herbal recipes for beauty and self-care. We want you to leave feeling refreshed, with blueprints tailor-made to maximize your well-being throughout the season. The property that will be hosting us for this magical three day weekend is nested on 5 acres of peaceful desert land with Open skies, mountain views and vintage Airstreams to take you right back to more simple times.
We'll pull practices from the Ayurvedic Doshas (Kapha, Pitta and Vata). This is the sister science to yoga, at its most ancient. Ayurveda – which comes from the Sanskrit “ayur,” meaning life, and “veda,” meaning science– literally means "the science of life." Sounds pretty important, doesn’t it? Ayurveda is oft overlooked in contemporary yoga but it is a true compliment that can greatly enhance your current practice. As a science, the benefits include disease treatment and prevention, improved energy, and overall well-being. The dietary aspects have the added bonuses of strengthening digestion, improving complexion, and shedding excess weight. With Ayurveda and yoga as the foundations of our retreat, we will also explore herbal remedies, seasonal eating habits and foods.
