Taming The Flame: Balancing The Pitta Dosha with Joe Simek

Of the three doshas found in Ayruveda, Pitta is perhaps the most difficult to balance. Related to the fire element, pitta often manifests in too much energy, inflammation, and a narrow mindset when it goes imbalanced. Those who are pitta imbalanced often have conditions like migraines, autoimmune disorders, insomnia, anger, and addiction. If you suffer from some of these conditions, or know that you are pitta imbalanced, this course can help. We’ll learn movement, breathing, chanting, meditation, and diet changes all targeting the pitta dosha. (This course is not recommended for those with acute anxiety and/or acute addiction.)

Boosting Your Immune System with Sam Barrett

Winter is here! Now more than ever, in the midst of a global pandemic, we need to take steps to support our immune system so that it functions optimally rather than trying to restore it once it is already down. Throughout this course, we will focus on movement, myofascial release, breath work, and meditation to invigorate our body and mind. This time of year it is vital to nourish and energize all of our organs to promote proper function by bringing awareness and energy to them. We will also explore Ayurveda, herbs, foods, and lifestyle changes that will strengthen our immune system. I hope you will join me for this deep dive inward to clear out anything that creates dis-ease and instead welcome balance on all levels of our being.
