Spring Cleanse: Ayurvedic Meditation and Yoga Week Retreat

Sunday, April 7 – Friday, April 12, 2019

Get Inspired this week!

Retreats always leave us a little more inspired, and motivated to put new information into action.  During this week-long retreat, you are invited to find inspiration and discover the beauty, vitality, awakening and peace that can be found in living a life with Ayurvedic wisdom, Yoga, Meditation and Nature, every day.

For thousands of years, the science of Ayurveda has provided the path to optimum well being by encompassing all aspects of being human: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Now more than ever we are seeking roads back to ourselves as the busy distractions of urban living increasingly disrupt our ability to live a healthy, balanced life.   This week will be a dive into Ayurvedic wisdom specifically for you.  Discover your constitution (dosha) and explore how to develop your unique lifestyle that supports health and vibrancy.  Learn to use the power of food, movement, breath, nature and meditation to guide yourself towards a more conscious and creative way of life and living.

The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda brings you back in contact with yourself using basic principles:  you are a part of nature, and the rhythms of nature operate with innate healing potential.   Ayurveda teaches you how to harmonize your own being with the rhythms (rta) of nature and to take control of your own health and healing.

This retreat, you can begin to explore how Ayurveda, with Meditation and Yoga, can reveal the workings of your mind, emotions, and behaviours, leading you towards greater self-acceptance and peace within.

In addition to daily energizing and calming practices of Yoga and Meditation, Toni and Liz will share the common-sense wisdom of balanced living, exploring simple ways to move closer to physical, mental and emotional health and healing.  

You will be eating, cooking, learning and listening to your inner guide throughout the six-day retreat.   Daily seminars will provide guidance on living according to your dosha, discussing daily routines (dinacharya), healing relationships with food, constitutionally specific exercise and meditation.   Daily cooking instruction focuses on foods specific for your dosha, for the season, for cleansing, for rejuvenating, for healing.

Sit in the quiet and calm that takes us inwards.  Explore the ancient wisdom from the past to bring you into a more conscious future.

There is no former knowledge or experience needed with Ayurveda, yoga or meditation.  No physical limitations prevent you from joining in to classes – use a chair if you need to.

I am  a graduate of the Centre for Ayurveda and Indian Systems of Healing (CAISH) where I became certified as an Ayurvedic Counsellor.  In addition, I studied Women’s Herbal Remedies at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico, as well as Ayurvedic Psychotherapy at Renaissance Yoga and Ayurveda in Toronto.  I adore the philosophy of Ayurveda and decided to unite its ancient wisdom with more mainstream psychotherapies as a way of providing a more holistic and complete approach to mental health.  I am also a Registered Yoga Instructor (RYT-200) and like to include yoga as part of a healing plan for many of my clients.
