About the Workshop
Dinacharya, or Ayurvedic daily rituals, play a key role in our health & wellness. When we establish a healthy morning routine, it sets the tone for the day, provides nourishment & establishes a connection between our bodies & minds. In this workshop we will explore traditional daily rituals from Yoga and Ayurveda, the traditional medical system of India. Morning rituals we will cover include: tongue scraping, oil pulling, neti & nasya, skincare, elimination, eye washing, karna purana, asana, pranayama & meditation.
Leave this workshop feeling empowered to make positive change in a sustainable way. Additionally Trudy will introduce you to the wonderful Ayurvedic products from PAAVANI Ayurveda. All attendees will receive a 20% discount on product purchases the day of the workshop!
The seed of PAAVANI Ayurveda was planted between Leah Klatt & Trudy Collings during their Herbalism Apprenticeship, at the California College of Ayurveda. It was then that the women discovered their common passion for developing skin & body care products that carry on the tradition of Ayurveda. They decided that they wanted to share this with the world. PAAVANI was born a few years later in 2014, when the women opened an office space in Grass Valley, CA, to offer Traditional Ayurvedic Body Therapies. It was at this time that the first products in their line were developed- the Aromatherapy Spritzers & Body Oils. The women intended to create dosha specific products that they could use in their therapies & further extend out to their community.
Co-owners, Leah & Trudy, bow to the inspiring forces of the community in which they are blessed to call home. This healing, energetic center in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is home to the sacred Yuba River, vast horizons of wild, natural beauty & creative people who influence them daily. The women give thanks to the powerful energy of this community & the support that it has offered to their creation of PAAVANI. Furthermore, the women seek inspiration & guidance through yoga & its philosophy, song, dance, shamanic journeying & travels around the world. PAAVANI would not be the thriving business it is today without the help of these awakening forces.
Ayurveda, a branch of Vedic Science, literally means “the science of life” and originated in India as the traditional healing system over 5,000 years ago. Considered one of the oldest forms of medicine, this ancient science works both as preventative & curative medicine, which promotes daily self-care as a means to acquire perfect health.
Ayurveda is the fundamental root of traditional Chinese Medicine and even the Buddha, himself, utilized Ayurvedic remedies. In India today, there are Ayurvedic medical schools training physicians in internal medicine, surgery, gynecology, pediatrics, toxicology & gerontology.
What makes Ayurveda practical is that it is not necessary to attend Ayurvedic medical school in order to understand or implement Ayurvedic knowledge into your daily life. According to Ayurveda, we create our state of health based on how we interact with our environment. By making choices that support our inner nature we can live harmoniously and in balance.
