Prenatal Teacher Training

Please Join Me For The MAyurveda: Living Ayurveda For Mamas Teleseminar!

When I became a mom, I realized I had no idea how to make healthy food without following lengthy recipes and living in the kitchen.

I went back to Ayurveda, and pared it down for busy moms into what I call MAyurveda: simple, do-able food and daily rhythm practices that support our physiology in a way that nothing else can.

Every time I have this conversation, I learn more about myself, my body, the food and rhythm choices I’m making and little shifts I can choose to make a HUGE difference in my energy, vitality, and productivity.

Prenatal Teacher Training

MAyurveda is about simple off-the-mat lifestyle routines we can all be doing to be able to get ourselves, our families, and our students back to balance when we go off.

The conversation happens each year in March – it’s 6 calls with me, Jessica, and a whole lot of other yogis interested in evolving our understanding of self-care – and supporting the flow of power, wisdom, and nurturing energy within.

If Your “Yoga Glow” Comes And Goes…And Your Weight, Your Vitality And Your Mood Changes Like A Leaf In The Wind…. It’s Not Your Fault.

If your “yoga glow” comes and goes…and your weight, your vitality and your mood changes like a leaf in the wind…. it’s not your fault.

Think about your education. Did anyone teach you how to take care of your body, really, on a day to day level – what to eat? what your unique constitution is – the particular ways that you go out of balance when you do? when to sleep? how to keep from getting sick? what to do when we are? even how to shift the energy of a relationship?

The oldest and broadest health and wellness system still in use today, Ayurveda is 5000 years old and means “the science of life.” Many of its simple practices are foreign to our culture, and yet are like a manual for having a body.

Ayurvedic Lifestyle Practices support us on our path. When we have more energy, better sleep, and healthy body, we can offer our gifts fully without feeling depleted.

Join us in evolving our awareness of how simple elements like earth and water can help us shift our day from mundane to miraculous.

Through discussion, yoga practice, and exploration of different foods and daily rhythms, we will all take our next steps toward the greatest health, vitality, and connectedness that we can experience in our bodies.

  • As far as the training went, I loved it! I loved the community you created. I loved the ease of the call downloading and the materials to follow along with. I liked all the suggestions. I feel like I really learned a lot. I really loved the daily routine plan and to hear how it works for you and how it was working for the others. It led me to some experimentation, and I felt like I really bonded with my boyfriend as we both tried some things together. So far, I am living in a new way because of you! These are all things that I wanted to do but always put off for another time. Your class really pushed me to implement them for good!

  • It was great to be able to listen and participate while taking care of my son and if I missed something I could re-listen to that part of the call on the recording. By adding a few of [the Anchor Practices] into my daily routine, I now have the extra energy to take care of my son without feeling drained.

  • Something else impressed upon me from this past week and it is how much of our daily practice with the MAyurveda gets us back in touch with self care and self love--something as a new mom or working mom or mom of multiples... we often neglect, forget and fail to do. (Yup, I used the f-word!) And what a great way to set the example to those around us (to our children, to other women, etc...) by our actions. 🙂

  • I have thoroughly enjoyed taking Mayurveda with you. Each class was so wonderful, spoke right to my level, and urged me into beautiful new territory. It was challenging in the best possible way. I'm inspired to continue my study of Ayurveda and I especially appreciate all of the resources you've given us. What a delight to be a part of it, and to find this nourishing and supportive community of girls! Life feels simplified, purposeful and healthy. I tried your Green Pancake recipe the other morning and Oliver (14 mnths) loved them. As did I!!

  • not only I feel more energized, but also, I feel that my workouts have better results. I'll explain; in addition to teaching yoga, I also teach fitness (indoor cycle, bootcamp, bodyblast) anyhow, whenever I taught more than 1 class a day in the past, I felt that the lactic acid produced during workouts was getting stagnated in the tissue. Which in turn left my muscles in a painful state. My western Dr. Suggested I exercised less. My chinese Dr. thought my spleen was not producing and moving new blood fast enough to flush the lactic acid out of the tissue. Well... with the cayenne pepper I have been teaching about 4 classes a day painfree!!!! I am just soooo amazed of the changes from the addition of this spice into my daily food intake. Jessica, I can't thank you enough for this ayurveda course. I am planning to continue learning about ayurveda. I am so excited about it :)))

  • I've been following the Ayurveda daily time rhythm and its amazing how your energy shifts with it! Thank you for allowing your lectures to be recorded online. Even though I can't be there during the live chats, it is nice to still feel apart of this class and to be able to learn the information and instill it in my life.
