Balancing Your Hot Yoga Practice

Sunday, October 16th 1-3pmscreen-shot-2016-09-13-at-2-32-54-pm

We don’t need to enumerate the benefits of a hot yoga practice at a hot yoga studio! But you might be surprised to learn that without finding ways to balance this fiery, detoxifying practice, hot yoga practitioners can end up depleted and overheated physically, mentally, and emotionally. Come learn how to maximize Bikram yoga’s ability to detoxify while keeping your liver, the body’s major organ of detoxification, happy. With a few Ayurvedic tricks, you can stay cool, calm, and balanced no matter how high the thermostat gets.


Daily Detox

cleansing_1Saturday november 5th 1-3pm

It seems like everyone is on a cleanse these days, but do we even know what exactly we are cleansing? And how do we know the cleanse we have chosen is safe and effective? Ayurveda has been in the “business” of eliminating toxins for over 5,000 years, and as a living tradition, Ayurveda is sublimely equipped to help us reduce our modern toxic loads. Come learn about the toxins that bombard us daily (from the air we breathe, the food we eat, the news we read, to the cell phones we carry in our pockets) and simple ways that we can detoxify our bodies, minds, hearts, and lives without undertaking elaborate, expensive, and sometimes dangerous cleanses.

Suzanne is a certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant through the American Institute of Vedic Studies. She is trained in pulse diagnosis and marma therapy through her guru, Vaidya Mishra, with whom she continues to study as an advanced practitioner.
