Accessible Āyurveda

The Science of Life

Āyurveda takes a holistic view of your body & mind (microcosm), to create unique-to-you practices and food recommendations that are ideal for creating balance.

Think of this age-old Indian medical science as a tool that can help you feel healthier and more balanced through easy changes in your everyday living. Each time you eat, cook, or do anything in your daily life, it can be a step towards creating balance and joy. 

Get clarity about your digestion, the Five Elements, and exactly what foods and lifestyle habits are most helpful for you in Accessible Āyurveda. Learn how to tend to your life in a way that creates abundant calm and steady joy instead of supporting your status quo. Learn practical, easy to implement tips for optimizing your meals, daily rituals, and supportive practices. Find out how to really support your health and longevity. 

This 12 month program is designed to empower you to establish the life you want, through gradual, easy-to-implement, shifts in your daily practices. The knowledge and support to truly create balance and good health is here. 

We are exploring Āhāra: Food According to Āyurveda

This module outlines properties of food, as they relate to: taste, digestion, and post-digestive effects. You will learn about hitakara (beneficial foods) and wrap your mind around what your body is satmya (accustomed to). Most importantly, why does the food you eat matter for your optimal health and balance. 

Get a better understanding of:

  • What are the principles and properties of specific foods according to Āyurveda? 
  • How can I plan menus in support of an Āyurvedic lifestyle?
  • How do I know a food is hitakara (beneficial) for my system?
