Understand what Ayurveda is — and why everyone is talking about it!

Somewhere along your  journey you may have encountered the word Ayurveda. At the very least, you’re likely to have heard talk of Ayurvedic remedies or practices, as there are many that have worked their way into mainstream wellness practices.

Yet you may be still wondering what exactly Ayurveda is, where it comes from, and how it can be of benefit to you in your life. How perfect that you've found your way here!

To put it simply, Ayurveda is the full-spectrum system of healing from ancient India. It offers tools for accessing greater clarity, more energy, more comfortable digestion, deeper rest and more.

In this 1-hour workshop, we make the principles of Ayurveda accessible by applying them to the modern context. We’ll cover the history and philosophy of Ayurveda in simple terms, and then provide practical steps, rituals and remedies so that you are able to walk the talk — and integrate Ayurveda into your life every day. 

A more balanced and vital life begins now!

After this crash-course in Ayurveda you'll have the tools, rituals and remedies to feel and look better than you ever have.

Meet Your Instructors

Certified Ayurvedic Practitioners, Wellness Educators Molly & Sierra of Cultivate Balance

Sierra Brashear, MA, and Molly McConnell, RYT 500, are both NAMA Certified Ayurvedic Practitioners and graduates of Alandi Ashram’s 2,000+ hour, National Ayurvedic Medical Association certified program. In addition to our formal training, we have both experienced firsthand the amazing wellness transformations catalyzed by Ayurveda, and are advocates for preventative wellness, body-positivity and self love in our daily lives. We believe that self care is a radical act — when you are vibrant and awake, you have the clarity and energy to show up for what you believe in — and we understand that balancing ourselves is the foundation for balancing our families, communities and the planet. With this in mind, we are committed to shifting humanity’s lived experience through respect for and realignment with nature. We source inspiration from the rhythms and elements of the Earth, knowing that this is the wild reclamation of our ability to heal ourselves and transform the world around us.
