April 1, 2017 — 2-4:30pm — Tejas Yoga Chicago
Healthy digestion is one of the cornerstones of good health in ayurvedic medicine. And it all starts with balanced nutrition. An old medicine (5,000 years, or so), the sages did not measure nutritional content in fats, proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, vitamins, or minerals. Instead, they were guided by taste. In this workshop, we'll explore how to discern the six tastes as defined by ayurveda, and why nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
