Sharing Yoga & Ayurveda in Boston and Beyond.

Ayurveda Boston with Kate O'Donnell


It's Fall Cleanse Time: Launch meeting at Down Under Yoga Brookline, Sept 21, 5-7pm. Learn about the theory and practice of traditional Ayurvedic cleansing.
The on-line forum with daily inspirations and instructions, where folks from all around support each other in the process, takes place Sept 27-Oct 5th
That's right folks. It is time to release accumulated fire element, and quiet the air element as the new season arrives. A light cleanse at the junctures of fall and spring is recommended by classical Ayurveda as a preventative measure to ensure good health all year long.

Seasonal Recipes 

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.
Check the Resources page for more recipes.

Late Summer Diet Tips:

The most aggravating foods in the heat are coffee, alcohol, spicy stuff, salty or fried stuff, vinegar and pickles, sour foods like citrus and tamarind, eggplants, raw tomato, and bell peppers. Don't say I didn't warn you! 
Signs of imbalance: acid indigestion, acne, irritability.

What Cookbook?

I'm working on a cookbook, with photographer Cara Brostrom!  We created a buzz by offering a free e-book of spring recipes.  

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.
