Ayurveda for Athletes Workshop
Nowadays stress is a popular term for our minds, but in Ayurveda stress is depletion in the mind or body from overuse. It is common for modern athletes to work hard and play hard, which takes a toll on reserves and resources. Goals keep getting more extreme and minds and bodies keep expanding to reach them. The problem, ayurvedically, is that without proper nourishment and rest, eventually things will get stressed, depleted, and finally break down.
Stress can show up in the form of intense training or competing in a physical challenge…or too much to do, heavy emotions, constantly pushing hard, fear, and heavy expectations.
In Ayurveda, we would never ask you to give up these amazing challenges you love to do! Instead, we want to offer you an individualized way to eat, schedule your day, practice, and rest that will help you build your vitality, strength, and energy reserves so that you can physically and mentally afford to conquer these goals.
Join Maria Radloff for a 3-hour workshop on how to integrate Ayurvedic routines and foods into your athletic lifestyle to become a stronger participant in your sports, and in your life!
When: February 17 from 1pm-4pm
Ayurveda takes an individualistic approach to health and well-being by first maintaining the existing health, then healing imbalances. When imbalance occurs, Ayurveda doesn’t just treat the symptoms. The first step in healing is to isolate the cause of the imbalance, so that it may be curtailed in order to prevent the disease from returning. Healing is generally done by balancing the doshas – reducing an aggravated dosha or possibly building a depleted dosha. For more chronic imbalances, a full cleanse (panchakarma) may be used.
Connecting us back to the rhythms of nature, Ayurveda focuses on prevention and healing using foods and cooking, herbs, daily and seasonal routines, and regular practices to bring balance to the mind and body. There are never harmful side effects…only side benefits!
This workshop will be taught by Maria Radloff (pictured). Maria is an Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor and educates individuals on proper Ayurvedic foods and lifestyles based on personal constitution.
