Upcoming Lectures, Workshops, Cooking Classes, Ayurvedic Training

October 15th 2016, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.,

Lecture: "The Six Tastes in Ayurveda - Cooking Class",

Ananda Ayurveda Wellness &Yogalish, 4822 West Ferret Drive, Tucson, AZ 85742


Bring a hunger for food, knowledge and appetite.
This class holds a maximum of 15 people, please reserve your spot by e-mailing Tanja @ YogalishAnanda@gmail.com.

Join us to explore the 6 Tastes of Ayurveda for a balanced diet.
In this cooking class you will learn about the 6 tastes, their energies, their purpose and need for a balanced diet and life. You will also learn how to easily integrate all 6 tastes into every meal using whole, organic food and herbs/spices.

All six tastes should be eaten in every meal: sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent. That's because each taste has an intimate relationship with the doshas and personal balance.

Sweet, or madhura, taste is a builder of those tissues that are formed from earth and water. Hence, sweet substances strengthen Kapha. An overload of sweets, on the other hand, can create a Kapha imbalance, which needs to be corrected with pungent, bitter and astringent tastes and warming foods.

Salty, sour and pungent tastes strengthen Pitta. That is, they strengthen all those functions associated with a rise in temperature: metabolic processes, for example. An excess of these tastes, however, aggravates Pitta and needs balancing out with sweet, cooling foods.

Pungent, bitter and astringent tastes increase Vata and all phenomena to do with movement, penetration and cleansing of channels. If you need to pacify Vata, therefore, you need to focus on the sweet, sour and salty tastes and eat more warm foods.

FREE!!!!! "What's my Dosha? Intro to Ayurveda"

Tucson Yoga ,150 South 4th Avenue, Tucson, AZ

Ever heard about Ayurveda, Yoga's sister science and the doshas, your unique constitution?
Learn all about the elements (earth, water, fire, air and ether), their qualities and your unique constitution in this two hour lecture.

The three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, are derived from the five elements. Also known as mind-body types, the doshas express unique blends of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics.
We’re all made up of a unique combination of these three forces (Vata, Pitta and Kapha). Though everyone has some of each, most people tend to have an abundance of one or two of the doshas. This unique combination is determined at the moment of conception, and is your own personal blueprint, or prakriti (nature). As you move through life, the proportion of each of the three doshas constantly fluctuates according to your environment, your diet, the seasons, the climate, your age, and many other factors. As they move into and out of balance, the doshas can affect your health, energy level, and general mood.
You can achieve and maintain a vibrant and joyful state of health by identifying your mind-body type and creating a lifestyle that supports your unique nature. You will leave the lecture with an understanding of the elements, doshas and an understanding of what makes us all unique and how we can be happy and healthy using tools like diet, herbs, lifestyle, yoga, meditation and more.

FREE!!!!! "Intro to Ayurveda & Panchakarma",

As part of the Shanti movement, we are honored to give this free talk!

Modern Mystic Yoga Academy,1927 E Grant Rd, Tucson, AZ 85719

Join wife and husband team Tanja, certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga teacher and Bill, certified Panchakarma Therapist for this Introduction lecture.

You will learn about Ayurveda—literally, "knowledge of life"—

It is is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing originating in the Vedic culture of India. Its goal is to help body, mind, and spirit regain their natural, optimal health through the proper balance of the five classical elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. Learn about the elements, their qualities and how they relate to you and the world around us.

In Ayurveda, the five elements combine in different ways to form the three doshas, or mind-body types: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Your fundamental constitution, or Prakruti, is an unique blend of the three doshas that was determined at the moment of conception and will remain constant throughout your life. Your constitution determines how you react to various foods, colors, aromas, and general life habits; it also determines what will cause you, in particular, to become out of balance, sick, and diseased. Knowledge of your constitution, and how to live in harmony with it is essential to developing optimal health.

November 12th, 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.,

"New Years Ayurvedic Detox",

Rooted in Education,1600 N Tucson Boulevard, Suite 100, Tucson, AZ

"New Years- Tridoshic-Easy- At Home-Detox Cleanse"

Over the holiday season, toxins can build up in the body. They find their way into us through foods, the air, water, chemicals, GMOs, pollution, preservatives and emotional stress. 
Our own digestive fire, called agni in Ayurveda, also plays a role. Overeating during the holidays, and overall poor eating habits, can dampen agni and lead to a build-up of ama – which results in sluggishness, extra pounds, poor sleep or worse. Pressure from work, family and financial concerns may also build up and bog you down physically and mentally.

The build-up of ama, or undigested material, ends up stored in our cells, circulatory and microcirculatory channels, slowing everything down and gumming everything up, including the digestion and elimination processes. The Ayurvedic solution is this: given an opportunity, the body will detox naturally – it's built to do that.

This is a very gentle tri-doshic cleanse. We will teach your cleansing and detoxing tools you will be able to use even after the detox is over. Some of these regimens you end up loving and they will become of your daily routine to continue to stay ama (toxin) free.


If you are interested in a stronger individualized detox according to special diseases/ symptoms etc like for example a liver detox, you can make an appointment with Tanja and we will do a personalized Panchakarma.
