Lunch Challenge

Ayurveda Wellness Healing lunch challenge….

Ayurvedically speaking our lunch should be made fresh and be the biggest meal of the day.

Having a big lunch is important because the sun, pitta energy (element of fire, energy of transformation!), and our agni (digestive fire), are all in alignment. This means big, lots o’ fire to digest big, lots o’ food! Our digestive fire is the strongest it will be all day long and it’s looking for a big meal to work on. If we wait to have our biggest meal at dinner, there is no fire left in nature or in us, so the food sits like a big blob in our bellies until the next day. Yuck!

Put the salad down. Salads are popular because they don’t have to be heated, they stay pretty fresh all day, and they are easily carried around. Plus, veggies! Unfortunately, salads are not the best choice from an Ayurvedic perspective because they are cold, light, rough, and can be hard for many people to digest. They can be okay in summer time for some people but overall they don’t give enough staying power for anyone and by 3:00 we’ll be sniffing around for cookies or chocolate.

Choose warm, nourishing foods. If possible, lunch should be warm, full of vegetables, delicious spices and flavors, protein of choice and balanced by what your dosha needs.

Try really hard not to eat at your desk. Multi-tasking and eating do not mix because we confuse our minds. “Am I eating food? Or am I typing? Or am I talking?” says the mind. The focus needs to be on the food so we can taste it, chew it well, and begin the digestive process healthfully (digestion starts in the mouth!). At the very least, step away from your desk and go into a conference room. Play your favorite Pandora or Spotify station to create a nice ambiance.

Bonus points if you can take a leisurely 15-minute walk outside after lunch. It helps the digestive process and keeps our mind nourished. This is not a power walk, it’s a stroll.

If not now, when?

The Red Umbrella

THE THREE PHASES OF LIFE – By Vishnu Om

#Ayurveda is a preventative system of medicine and health care but also a guide to support you in optimal living. 

How we choose to live our lifestyle will determine if we will incur disease or redirect it. 

Our lifestyle should be a reflection of our life, and our life should be supported by choices that enliven us versus enslave us.

As we live according to the daily cycle, seasonal cycle, annual cycle, lunar cycle and life cycles, we can recycle the breath over and over again with more joy and less sorrow but ultimately more peace and ease.

Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC encourages you to be the red umbrella when faced with choices. Your health will thank you and so will those around you

Journaling Workshop with Jaime Robbins

Self-Discovery Journaling Workshop

With Jaime Robbins

We are pleased to host Jaime Robbins’ Self-Discovery Workshop on Saturday, February 1st from 11:30am – 1:30pm.

This event is geared towards individuals who want to get honest with themselves.  Through guided writing, participants are encouraged to spend time alone by answering six to eight questions and then given the opportunity to share (optional) in one-on-one conversations and large group discussions.  The workshop is intended to be an emotional experience where connections to oneself and others can be made.

Appropriate for both men and women ages 18+.  Participants are asked to bring a journal and a pen for the journaling portion, and a kind, open heart for the sharing portion.  No one will be forced, or put on the spot to share or journal.  The experience of being in the room and listening may be just as beneficial for some.  The content and curriculum has been developed by Jaime.

Who is Jaime?Jaime is a writer, speaker, yoga teacher, and cancer survivor. In 2015, just three days after giving birth to her son, she was diagnosed with cancer.The morning she received her diagnosis was the day she began showing up for her life by questioning everything. While enduring an arduous and horrific treatment plan, she started a blog, jaimethinksaydo.com and wrote about her mental, emotional, and physical journey in very real, raw, and vulnerable words.  Because of her transparency, she quickly gained followers and started connecting with people who were curious about human perseverance and self-discovery. Once she was in remission, she branched out from the internet and social media and began meeting face to face with people who wanted to find authenticity, self-exploration, and freedom.  She creates safe spaces for people to uncover who they really are by giving private and public talks, leading journaling workshops, and hosting weekend retreats. She is honest but comforting, and treats everyone as if they are sitting around her kitchen table at home.  She brings people – no matter the size of the group – together to create mindful energy where self-analysis and real change can take place.

Reiki Training Level 1

Reiki Master Marleen Wood will offer classes in Level 1 of Usui Reiki training.

Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki means Universal Life Energy, the energy that sustains all life. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.

First Degree Reiki Training (two days January 11 & 12, 2020 must attend both days)
We will capture the essence of Reiki. You will hear the history of Reiki and learn about applications of Reiki, harnessing and protecting your energy. You will learn how to do a complete Reiki treatment using hand positions and intuition. You will learn the five precepts of Reiki and practice specific Japanese meditation techniques. You will experience attunements at a local energy vortex, so that you may begin practicing Reiki on yourself and others, with understanding and clarity. You leave class with a certificate, fully trained to do Reiki on yourself, loved ones and friends, plants and animals.

We recommend a 30-day practice period between learning each level of Reiki training, so that the student may gain experience and confidence before progressing to the next level.

*Must have a minimum of 6 people to run the class

Level 1 Reiki Training

Winter Cleanse…Relax, Release, Reset

 

Join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC, and Four Directions Integrative Health in a guided, at-home 3-day Winter Cleanse.

January 12 – 15, 2020

Winter is a great time of year for a cleanse. This is not just a cleanse, but one that also helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.

Seasonal cleansing rids our bodies of all sorts of toxins, pollutants, harsh chemicals, pesticides, and any other Ama (toxic residue) that our physical body has accumulated over the holiday period. Cleanses will help to purify and tone the internal organs, cells, and tissues of the body, flushing out impurities that aren’t serving us.

* Have you been feeling more sluggish and tired lately
* Is your energy level just not what it used to be
* After you eat, all you want to do is take a nap
* Is your thinking as clear and sharp as you’d like
* Do you have a heavy coating on your tongue
* Do you have foul body, breath and/or stool odor
* Are you experiencing indigestion and excessive flatulence
* Do you have body aches
* Is your mind foggy

An Ayurvedic cleanse focuses on resetting the digestive fire, allowing it to rest and strengthen. The detoxifying nature also supports the body’s own natural mechanisms to remove built up toxins from the body. It’s a bit like cleaning out the pipes when the drain gets clogged, or hopefully even before the drain gets clogged.

Included in cleanse:
6 meals
Cleanse Supplements
Oil and Tridoshic Body Scrub

Cleansing Tea
Email and/or phone support
Massage special

30-minute follow up Ayurveda Consultation by phone

Pre-registration:
