Sharing Yoga & Ayurveda in Boston and Beyond.
Ayurveda Boston with Kate O'Donnell
New Location. I have relocated my consultations to the Back Bay, near Boston Common. You will see I am offering limited appts, I'd like you all to know Im working on a freelance project through the summer, and making 2 short trips to India (March and July) which means I will only be practicing Ayurveda one day/wk. Please contact me if you need an alternate time or location, and I will try to be available.

Yoga for Spring
It is the time of year to shed excess water and weight by moving and sweating. The best time of day for this is before breakfast. Consider changing it up this spring by getting up earlier to do your exercise first thing. Yoga practice can be warming, invigorating- even a bit fiery. Vinyasa styles, invigorating pranayama, and hot yoga are choices to consider.
Practicing at home? 6 Bucks will get you an MP3 of my guided meditation so you can get your Ayurveda on.
The Beet Queen- an oldie and goodie, sweet and bright. A towering beverage- you may like to share or pour some into a bottle to bring to work. I often have this after yoga practice, or to tide me over while I am cooking.
Pulse in the blender with a cup of water or apple juice until smooth:
1 TBSP chia seeds, soaked for 5 minutes (optional), half a peeled beet, a handful of Parsley one green apple, a few leaves of kale or chard, and/or a handful of baby spinach. Add water and whiz until its how you want it.

Spring Diet TipsYou may experience a loss of appetite this time of year. If you are not hungry, there is no need to eat.
Dairy, too much wheat, and cold foods and drink are very aggravating this time of year. Enjoy ginger lemon tea, try whole grains instead of flours, and warm almond, soy, or hemp milk.
This explains the lack of newsletters and new recipes lately. You wont see the book for another year or so, but it will be worth the wait.
