Chef Janice Evert of Rootz Kitchen and Emilly Phillips-Geeza of Niantic Yoga

We are excited to introduce this very special afternoon at Weekend Kitchen!  A combined yoga class and Ayurvedic luncheon. Emily Phillips-Geeza is an accomplished yogi (instructor at Niantic Yoga), herbalist and Ayurvedic specialist and joining her is Chef Janice Evert- a certified plant-based chef, health coach, yoga instructor and also Ayurvedic specialist.  You can read their Bios in our Chef area via the links above.  

What is Ayurveda?  In brief, Ayurveda, a natural system of medicine, originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda(science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda tralates to knowledge of life. Based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person's consciousness, Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment.  It encompasses a special diet, herbal remedies, massage therapy, yoga, and meditation.  You will learn all about it- it's fascinating!  

Emily will teach an all levels gentle vinyasa yoga class from the perspective of a plant and the wheel of the year, integrating the elements throughout. Ie- north: seed,(earth and water) east: sprout:,(fire) south:flower, fall: compost (air/ether).  It will be wonderful!  
Our yoga practice will be followed by a discussion of Ayurvedic principles. We will take a quick dosha quiz so that we will know where we fall in this ancient practice.  This will be followed by a lovely luncheon and discussion of Ayurvedic foods and the menu recipes prepared by plant-based Chef Janice Evert of Rootz Kitchen. 
Please bring a beach towel, blanket, or yoga mat, and any favorite props, bug spray, and sun protection as class will be outdoors. Let us know of any food allergies as well.
