Amazing Vegetables A to Z Full Series

AMAZING VEGETABLES A TO Z FULL SERIES

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective

This is the class that will hone your skills as an amazing vegetable gardener. It is designed to take beginners to a new level and remind intermediate gardeners of the success strategies that always work when we go off course and forget the science of what got us to success in the first place. We will cover the science of vegetable gardening, do some myth busting, and provide you with some clear cut strategies to get the biggest harvest from the space you have.

The classes are 2 ½ hours each and are designed so that you can take the entire series or drop in for a refresher on the single class or classes that you want to brush up on. We will use a combination of hands-on, lecture and demonstration to keep you engaged.

 

You can sign up for each individual session, or sign up for all four classes in the series at a discount by signing up for "Amazing Vegetables A to Z Full Series".

 

Please note: We will not cover gardening in containers in depth in this class. If that is your interest, please see Crops in Pots.

Ayurveda Four-Part Series

Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga that deals directly with healing the mind and body. Through diet, lifestyle, breathing exercises, herbal medicine and spiritual practices, Ayurveda offers a unique set of tools for individuals to regain balance with their own true nature. Ayurveda is centered on the idea that all beings are a unique composition of the five natural elements (space, air, fire, water and earth) which make up the three doshas (vata, pitta and kapha). Learning how the different doshas function and how they impact the mind and body, you can begin to recognize signs of imbalances early on and implement Ayurvedic practices to bring yourself back to balance.

In this four-part series, each class gives you some examples of what Ayurveda has to offer for your wellness routine. The series begins with an exploration of what the doshas are and how they affect you on an individual level. With that foundational knowledge, the second class is a yoga practice that flows through the five elements and three doshas within all of us to prepare for a blissful resting pose. Receive yoga sequences to take home to continue to practice on your own.

A major concept of Ayurveda is maintaining health through lifestyle protocols and eating seasonally with good food combinations to prevent illness or disturbance to your health. In the third class, explore some herbal remedies prepared in a kitchen for the purpose of preventing disease. In the fourth class, we cook with the six different tastes of Ayurveda and feast together. Take home recipe ideas from the last two classes to keep the exploration going at home.

 

Your Mind-Body Constitution. What Is Your Dosha?

Wed. Jul 15, 2020, 6-8 p.m.

Your dosha is your mind-body type and it is determined by factors such as your genetic makeup and when you were born. This workshop briefly covers the basics of Ayurveda and how to determine your dosha, as well as includes some pranayama (or breath-work) that is balancing for all three doshas.

 

Ayurveda and Vinyasa Yoga: Flow Through the Five Elements of Nature in a Movement Meditation

Wed. Aug 26, 2020, 6-8 p.m.

Yoga is the sister science of Ayurveda. By incorporating the Ayurvedic principles of the five elements in the natural world into a yoga practice, this class serves to connect us to our own true nature. The two complementary sciences are combined to create an illuminating and slow-moving meditation with yoga postures that can be modified for all levels. View the healing art of yoga through an Ayurvedic lens with some take-home practices for each season and mind-body type.
