Samata International




I was most intrigued when my dear friend, Larry Payne asked me to teach a special class to his Yoga Therapy RX Program students on the above topic. Now we have decided to open it up to all. Space is, however, limited. And pre-Registration by Dec 10th is required.

In addition to the below information, with the help of two amazing Ayurvedic Chef’s Jutta Hecht and Jacquelin Sonderling, we have added a “tasting section” to this workshop. Beyond discussing different recipes for various disorders we now also get to sample a few!

From blended soups and breakfast drinks, to red cabbage sauerkraut and a special hummus, and from chocolate ladoos to the ever perennial kichadi.

Can we address common ailments by our food choices? Yes, says Ayurveda, sister science to yoga, and the ancient medical system that underlies yoga’s healing theories and practices. By recognizing our food intake as the primary factor in creating, maintaining and correcting our health paradigm. What we digest is what goes on to inform the intelligence of our cellular body. Illness arises when there is either a weakness in our digestive system or it is taxed by the wrong diet. Ayurveda says that if we eat the right foods there is no need for medicine and conversely, if we continue to eat the wrong foods, no amount of medicine will help.

In this full day Immersion, we will first learn its basic principles.  Then we will examine its vast understanding of food and diet. And we will answer the above question affirmatively by breaking foods down into tastes, qualities, structure, values and intelligence. All in the language of yoga.
By matching these to the necessary needs of our ailments we may go a long way in addressing not just the symptomology but the root causes themselves.
We will then try and discuss as many specific ailments as we can, such as constipation, diarrhea, headaches, hot flashes, Parkinson’s, heart disease, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes and even back pain!

Comprehensive Handouts will be provided.
