April 2024 – workshop*


Date:  Saturday, April 06, 2024 

Time:  1:00-3:00pm 

Presenter:  Shannon Sabol


TOPIC: Ayurveda 101 Workshop

Ayurveda is an ancient science that’s over 5,000 years old.  It’s off the mat yoga, and the art of daily living.  This nature based healing system embraces individuality and understands that not everyone can thrive on the same diet and lifestyle, but understands that we all have a unique elemental makeup.  In this workshop we will discuss our connection to nature, how Ayurveda has a beautiful way of categorizing energy (into what we call the Doshas), and how living in alignment with the rhythms of nature brings more balance and harmony into our lives.  You will leave with a better understanding of how Ayurveda is all about getting to know yourself better, and how we are not separate from nature….but we ARE nature.  Visit Shannon’s website at
