Intro to Ayurvedic Cooking
November 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
One event on November 7, 2019 at 6:00 pm
Curious about Ayurveda but don’t know where to start? Gain a deeper understanding of the practice of Ayurveda from Ayurvedic medicine practitioner Vanashree Belgamwar. This two-part class will introduce the concepts of this ancient healing science and show you how you can start incorporating it into your life and diet. Ayurveda literally means “knowledge of life” and its scope is truly no less encompassing. It’s a system of healing that examines physical constitution, emotional nature, and spiritual outlook. While the tradition is thought to be over five thousand years old, Ayurveda remains as relevant as ever.
Day one of this class will be classroom and lecture-based focusing on the foundations of Ayurveda including identifying and understanding your constitution or “dosha”. Participants will also enjoy an Ayurvedic soup during class prepared by staff.
Day two will be a hands on cooking class in our kitchen focusing on principles of Ayurvedic cooking and simple recipes for any constitution to nourish your digestive fire or “agni”.
- Carrot, Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Soup (Prepared by TGA staff, recipe provided)

Note: The $90 fee for this class cover both evenings, Tuesday, November 5th and Thursday, November 7th.
