Ayurvedic Self Care Practices to Keep Your Cool During Summer:
In the summer season, it is important to focus on practices that help us to keep cool – physically, mentally and emotionally. The sun, being the deity of fire, brings with it more light and heat both inside and outside the body and in the entire atmosphere. This three-class series offers summer tips for keeping balanced.

  • It is recommended to register for the entire series, as subsequent classes will build on the previous ones. However, they can also be taken separately.
  • Class 2: Food, Drink & Recipes
    Let us learn how to make wise food and drink choices this summer. There is a saying, “Let thy food be thy medicine.” In Ayurveda, everything we take in through the body, mind and senses is considered food. Condiments like fresh cilantro, shredded coconut, mint, raisins and sprouts are great for summer. Vidya will share some delicious recipes for keeping cool.
