This highly interactive workshop is about becoming friends with summer…like when we were kids. School was out, the shoes were off; we sought water to splash in and didn't fear the sun. Summer was something to celebrate not to hide from. That’s what Ayurveda teaches us: how to dance with the seasons by fully understanding their nature. In some cases we go with the flow, and at other times we take the lead and give the elements a spin, but we always end up in full embrace followed by a gracious bow.

*Diet & Detox: Summer’s natural diet IS a detox…a long, slow and gentle one. You will learn six simple steps to amplify the detoxifying results of eating in tune with the summer season. You will also develop a sense of what’s right for you in summer without memorizing food lists.

*Mudra, Mantra & Pranayam: You will learn a mudra and a mantra that can be used in tandem for maximum effect and independently for convenience and subtlety. These, along with an exceptionally cooling pranayam, are your summer allies; always with you and ever ready to work their chilling magic.

*Pranic Healing: A simple refreshing technique to share with friends and family.

*Motivation: A quick, but deep dive into an advanced subject: The Samprapti of Pitta, the fiery dosha. Samprapti is the Ayurvedic term for the pathway of disease manifestation. If merely our comfort in summer weren’t enough, there are profound consequences for letting heat accumulate and spread throughout our body. Understanding this progression, though signs, cravings and symptoms, will empower you to recognize, halt and reverse the process in the early stages.

About this Presenter: 

Kathleen Lohr, LMT, has been practicing Ayurvedic Bodywork Therapies at DYC Wellness since 2010.

This intensive program qualified her skills in Ayurvedic Bodywork Therapy, Pancha Karma techniques and Marma Chikitsa. She returns to Canada for weeks of work/study each year and studies with the western masters of Ayurveda every chance she gets.
