AYURVEDIC INTEGRATIVE NUTRITION: LEVEL 1
Nutrition, Digestion Doshas & Cooking
Ayurvedic cooking involves far more than the creation of sumptuous, nutritional meals. It is the frontline of traditional medicine in our homes. It is a reconnection with the intelligence and rhythms of nature. It is sacred activism that supports biodiversity, sustainability, organic farming and fair trade.
Food is nourishment, sustenance, and life, but only when it is conscious food brought forth with integrity from natural sources – and then only when it is properly selected and prepared according to your current state, the season, the weather and the time of day. The conscious food ways of Ayurveda is medicine, philosophy, relationship, activism and preservation all in one. Every meal is a choice to eat, live and declare your values.
Establishing the foundations of Ayurvedic Nutrition, this course is perfect if you want to access Ayurvedic wisdom for you and your family, if you are a food writer, a recipe creator, or you have studied Ayurveda or allopathic medicine wanting more depth in nutrition. It is also perfect if you are already a health practitioner – acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga teacher, herbalist – and want to enhance your professional offerings with nutritional guidance, formatted group cleanses and foundational Ayurveda Nutrition classes.
