Introduction to Ayurveda workshop

“Thanks again for the workshop – it not only met but exceeded my expectations, and you had thought out a wide range of activities and information in a very creative way. It has inspired me to make some lifestyle and dietary changes, starting with a yoga class. I have unearthed my Ayurveda cookbooks from a few years back, and am starting to experiment…”
