Spring Restorative Workshop: Hot Stones and Aromatherapy



Spring is a time when the earth transitions from a period of hibernation into a season of re-birth and renewal as we watch life around us begin to stir and reawaken. As spring flowers begin to pop up from the sleepy winter ground, we can find inspiration in these cues of Mother Nature to grow the seeds inside ourselves, to look ahead, formulate new ideas, make decisions and take action. Just as these new flowers need soil, rain, and sun to blossom, we too must care for our most basic needs in order to flourish.

Restorative yoga is a powerful and therapeutic practice that uses props to support the body combined with guided meditation to encourage stillness of the mind. Immerse yourself in this three-hour seasonal workshop experiencing a combination of gentle yoga poses, guided meditation, aromatherapy and hot stones. During the practice, you will cultivate a deep sense of relaxation to soothe and cleanse your nervous system, boost your immune system and deepen mind/body awareness. Emerge with a sense of renewal and connection, better prepared to take on the challenges of the season.

Introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine


Introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine_slider

Together, we’ll explore how the ancient concepts of Ayurveda, a 5,000 year old system of traditional East Indian Medicine, can help us with our issues of stress, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, aches, pains, stiffness and sluggishness.

Learning Ayurvedic concepts helps us cope with modern stressors by teaching us to align ourselves with Nature. In this two-hour workshop we will learn about the five elements, the three doshas, and how they empower us to promote good health and a sense of well-being.


Cost: $30 before / $35 day of

About the instructor: 

Aparna Dandekar, Family Medicine, Osteopathy & Ayurveda, board certified family physician trained in three medical sciences–Western (Allopathic) Medicine, Osteopathy, and Ayurveda.

The philosophy that I adhere to is simple: nature knows best. My inherent faith in nature’s self-regulating wisdom is further strengthened by my Osteopathic and Ayurvedic training. Simultaneously, my experience as an allopathic physician has given me the utmost respect for modern science. I believe that balanced health can be better achieved by aligning ourselves with the guidelines handed down from ages past, while availing ourselves to the benefits of today’s technological advancements.
