This is the place to start if you are new to Ayurveda and have never had a consultation before. The first step to balancing out the body through food by understanding your dosha. In this consultation, we’ll discuss your health history and some ways to reset your digestion and in turn enable you to become more in tune with your inner patterns and predispositions to help you balance your lifestyle using simple Ayurveda practices and foods for balancing your dosha.
For existing clients only. After our initial consultation I’ll create a personalized plan that is catered to your needs based on Ayurvedic methods.
Empower yourself in your kitchen! Learn how to confidently choose ingredients, find fun and purpose in cooking, and prepare dishes for your doshas. Each workshop will combine discussion, participatory cooking demonstrations, and ends with a delicious meal!
Even though you have a food plan, and know the best foods to eat for your dosha, are you still overwhelmed by all the choices in stores?
Chef Smita will answer all these questions and more at an in-person shopping trip accompanying you to a select Farmers market.
In Ayurveda, the postpartum period following childbirth is considered to be a 42 day sacred window for the mother to rest, re-center, and find balance so that you can focus on resting, nurturing herself, bonding with and feeding your baby. The key to postpartum care of the mother is to calm vata (the ether and air elements).
During pregnancy, a woman’s body prioritizes sending nutrients to the fetus. The 42 days post-birth reorients the system and prioritizes the nourishment of her own body. It is important to recognize that a “nutrient” does not just mean food, it is anything that you intake – food, liquid, air, perceptions. That is why a 42-day postpartum regime takes a truly holistic approach.
Smita will be using warming spices to support digestion, as well as circulation and milk production and ayurvedic herbs like Pippali (ganthoda), Saunth (ginger powder), Fenugreek, Carom Seeds, Ashwagandha and Shatavari powders in the meals. And meals will be cooked based on seasonal vegetables. All grain and nuts will be sprouted to bring back the prana (lifeforce). Meals will be prepared for the 4 phases of the postpartum (6 weeks) which includes freshly prepared breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and teas. Restore your body, mind and soul so you can, in turn, share it with your loved ones.
