Press pause on your life’s demand and come to relax, renew and learn the basics of the oldest healing system of the world known as Ayurveda at Orchard View Lavender Farm. In this Petite Retreat, you will be introduced to Ayurveda’s approach to find what our own special combination of doshas are and to learn to keep them in balance so that we can stay in radiant health, mentally, emotionally, and physically. What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a natural health and wellness system that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. Universal interconnectedness lies at the heart of Ayurveda. In this petite retreat you will come to an understanding of your ideal state of balance (prakriti) which is the individual constitution and what causes an imbalance (vikruti). The subtle energies known as (doshas) help us to understand our relationship with the environment, food, seasons and much more. You will also understand why no two individuals are alike.
In the Ayurveda Workshops guided by Vibha you will learn the concept behind the Ayurveda wellness that can support you in self-healing by learning to reduce stress, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, live consciously, and enjoy more sustainable energy. You will learn to listen to your body and discover how it can help you maintain healthy habits after the Retreat. You will also learn how to incorporate specific spices into your diet with a live cooking demonstration. Later you will create your own Ayurveda Vision Board to take home.
Ayurveda & Yoga are considered sister science, meaning they emerged from the same root from Sankhya philosophy. Immerse yourself in the ancient tradition in an idyllic setting and picturesque surroundings of Orchard View Lavender farm. The day will begin with Yoga hosted by Mary Ellen Moses. Mary has been teaching Yoga for over twenty years, fourteen of which she owned Awakening Point Yoga Studio in Hackettstown, NJ. Mary will guide the yoga postures based on the Ayurvedic principles of doshas. Ken Meyer, our guest musician, will accompany the postural practice with deep, soulful rhythms using a variety of percussion instruments to enhance the yoga session in the lavender field.
Ayurveda is not just about nutrition or herbology. It has a unique tool for understanding the human constitution as it is different from person to person. Each individual has a unique metabolic system and Ayurveda teaches us to cherish our innate-nature through the selection and correct preparation of food based on your prakriti. Chef Ed Oliveira of The Angry Chouriço BBQ has created a healthy and delicious vegetarian lunch menu inspired by the Ayurvedic principles using locally sourced fresh organic ingredients for you to enjoy. Lunch will be served in family style.
