Become your own wellness alchemist with renowned Ayurvedic cooking instructor Nalini Mehta. During this program, we will explore the different dosha body types and how best to nourish them throughout each season. The Vata dosha, easily aggravated by cold, windy, and dry conditions, is susceptible to imbalance during the winter months. In summer, the Pitta dosha benefits from extra dietary care and attention, and the Kapha dosha can become unstable in the transitional seasons of autumn and spring. Lean how to best nourish your body type and thrive in every season, through Nalini’s masterful demonstrations of authentic ayurvedic food preparation. This program will walk you through theory, recipes, and dietary strategies to keep you healthy, happy, and whole all year!
