Seasonal change affects each of us in more ways than we may think. When summer heat transitions to fall dryness, what seems to be merely a change in weather influences the health of our immune systems as well as our skin, muscles and joints. The ancient practice of Ayurveda developed naturally within this seasonal continuum. In Dr. Jayís interactive, hands-on workshop, he will discuss how Ayurvedic principles are pertinent to our world, demonstrating simple and effective remedies, useful health practices and appropriate diet modifications specifically for fall. He will also share a choice selection of delicious and healthy seasonal recipes for you and your loved ones. Don't miss this fascinating journey into a greater understanding of seasonal well being.
