You will begin in the yoga studio with Taylor for a 45 minute meditation and gentle movement session with an emphasis on digestive health. After the yoga session, you will move to the culinary teaching space where Manish will break down Ayurvedic principles of common kitchen spices and herbs, while introducing traditional Ayurvedic herbs, spices, and recipes. Learn to use these to enhance flavor and nutrition as you prepare a delicious, locally sourced, organic, plant based, and dairy free meal for the whole class. You will prepare beet dahl, sauteed greens, and coconut date balls using Ayurvedic principles. You and your classmates will sit down and enjoy the meal together at the end of class.
