Ayurveda Cooking Class ~ Grounding Autumn Meals to Restore & Protect


Learn how to cook and eat to restore and protect, using ancient Ayurveda practices; while enjoying a perfectly crafted meal to nourish you through the changing season.

Where: Roots on Whyte Building, Edmonton        

When: October 21st from 5:30-8:30pm

Investment: $50 (dinner included)

Details: According to Ayurveda, as the days get shorter and darker, transitioning from Summer to Autumn, we’re moving out of pitta season and into vata season, where air and ether elements dominate. In Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing Dr. Vasant Lad says vata is “light, subtle, dry, mobile, rough, and cold. So, in the fall season, which also exhibits these attributes, vata will tend to be aggravated in the human constitution.”

You may experience a bit of a scattered feeling or a general desire to slow down. Your need to become grounded may have you craving time in nature and warm foods. It’s in our favor to rest more and eat easy to digest, warming, unctuous “one pot” foods such as soups, stews, casseroles etc to support the variable appetite and digestion that can occur. There are potential built-up disturbances from your summertime lifestyle that can surface in autumn and may become balanced with proper dietary and lifestyle considerations.
