Insights into Diet and Digestion from the Ayurvedic Perspective with Simone deWinter of Marin Ayurveda

A Four Part Series: Tuesday Nights from 7-9 on Sept. 30, Oct. 7, 14 & 21

Ayurveda has a very nuanced way of relating to foods, different from the modern nutritionist’s approach. Instead of relating to food groups and vitamin and mineral content, it considers the taste and energy of a food, and emphasizes the ability to digest and assimilate its nutrients. How does the quality of each considered taste affect us chemically? Does a food heat us up or cool us down? What is the post-digestive effect of a food?

In this class series, we will create an intimacy with our digestive systems, and a basic understanding of the quality of different foods, herbs and spices, and what they do in our bodies. Each class will focus on visualization, guided meditation, and lecture. You will receive many practical tips and recipes, so that Ayurveda becomes a familiar daily choice.
