Are you looking to lighten up your diet and move more plant-based? Keen to try new flavours? Curious about protein from dhals and beans? It’s Veganuary! Come and enjoy communal cooking and eat like a yogi!
In Ayurveda (the traditional Indian health system and a sister science to yoga) your dosha is your constitution type. Vata, pitta and kappha, are the Sanskrit names for the doshas. In preparation for the day search ‘dosha quiz’ and find out your type.
Bring an apron, something to tie back long hair, a chopping board and knife. More boards and knives here. Could be an idea to bring plastic food containers too.
We will chop and prepare a full meal, fresh chutneys, snacks and deserts, and enjoy the fruits of our labour around the table together. Once we’ve tidied and washed up we’ll take a walk on the land here then over tea we’ll workshop our next steps regarding diet. No yoga this time – we’ll be too full!
This day includes:
-basic ayurvedic principles of diet
-spicing for dhals and other pulses
-reasons for certain restrictions for people on the yogic path
-prana, the vital force
-co-coached workshop on next dietary steps
Fiona is a long time yogi and yoga teacher, and has cooked in yoga centres and ashrams. Post-class soup and food on day and residential retreats is much appreciated. From google reviews of Viveka Gardens, ‘food’ is the most common key word.
Here at Viveka Gardens eating a compassionate (vegan) diet is a key element of the ethos. Knowing your dosha is one way to have personal insight to both work on and accept your body-mind nature. This day workshop supports all this in a light-hearted, fun and informative community way.
