HIB Fall Retreat - Take a Break! Sustainable Living: Rejuvenation on the Mat and In the Kitchen (Zoom) with Sarah & Julia

Saturday, October 23, 9:30am-3:30pm
Sustainable living is not just conserving and nourishing our external environment, but also the environment within. To sustain ourselves, sometimes we need a break. Most of us are carrying excess stress, both from our personal lives, and the collective stress of our time. The transition from summer to fall is an ideal time to take a pause, a time for dedicated self-care, nourishment, and building reserves. Join Sarah and Julia for a day of rejuvenation and nourishment both on the mat and in the kitchen.

Morning Session with Sarah: 9:30am-12pm We’ll begin with the natural cycles of effort and rest, according to Ayurveda, followed by Ayurvedic guidelines to restore energy during the fall season. Our morning practice will be appropriate for all levels, and will include gentle movements to release fatigue, “container” practices to restore energy, and restorative postures for deep rest. A take home practice guideline will be provided for you to use at home.

Lunch Break: 12-1pm

Afternoon Session with Julia: 1-3:30pm The afternoon session will be spent in the kitchen discussing how seasonal foods and spices nourish and rejuvenate during the fall transition. Making the right food choices can enhance our resiliency as we move towards the cooler months. Julia will demonstrate how to cook beans and vegetables with seasonally supportive herbs and spices. She will also highlight practical food preparation tips to support sustainability of our outer environment. Recipes and tips will be provided for you to implement at home.
