What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is called the Mother of Healing because it is 5000 years old. It is the original medicine of India. It’s diet and lifestyle-based prescriptions heal body, mind and spirit to create holistic wellness. Karuna Diedericks is a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist who has studied yoga, Vedic literature and Ayurveda for over two decades. She will be explaining the three Ayurvedic bio-energies (dosha), namely Vata, Pitta and Kapha that prevail in each individual in a unique combination that creates different body-types. Each body-type has different needs with a unique path to healing. Learning about their own body-types will empower attendees to know what is best to do, eat and avoid to create optimal health.
The most practical application of Ayurveda is through cooking. Food is indeed medicine in Ayurveda. With the understanding of Ayurvedic body-types comes the realization that everybody thrives on different foods. “Everything is good for somebody, nothing is good for everybody” is the popular axiom used. Karuna Diedericks is an expert in Ayurvedic nutrition. Combining her extensive experience as a plant-based chef with her training as an Ayurvedic practitioner, she will present a cooking demo that is packed with valuable information about eating right for your type. She uses an array of whole foods and aromatic Indian spices to create tantalizing dishes that are simple, easy to make at home and pleasing to all the senses.
