About The Event

January - February indicate the start of the Kapha season, and its cold, dull, damp and heavy weather tends to increase Kapha within the body. Kapha symptoms can be felt like chest and/or sinus congestion, feeling of heaviness in the body, lack of energy or motivation, slower digestion, melancholic emotions, among others. However, Ayurveda teaches that winter is not weakening but strengthening, and the best season to improve your immunity. This beautiful retreat offers you the opportunity to prepare your whole being for a deep and integrated healing of body, mind and spirit. We will discuss the energy of the elements and how they relate to the senses. Since the senses are the tools that provide us with information from the out world or nature, as clear, clean and tune these instruments are, then as clear and accurate will be the reality we perceive. This information will feed the mind. If the mind is not in harmony and free of toxins, there is no true health. Ayurveda contemplates that the site of any disease had been build first in the mind. We will discuss the Gunas. The three prime qualities of Nature of Sattva, rajas and tamas and their role in the healing process. During this retreat, you not only will find a welcoming space to relax, restore and re-energize your body, mind and spirit, but also an opportunity to learn and practice basic Ayurveda knowledge (healing science or medicinal branch of yoga), cooking Ayurvedic classes, yoga asanas specific for Vata and Kapha balancing, five senses therapy purification, Pratyahara, meditation, restorative yoga, marma points and essential oils, snowshoeing/cross country ski, pond skating (weather permitting) or breathtaking walks along the 20 acres of woods of this lovely property.
