About the event
At its core, Ayurveda is about finding balance in all aspects of your life. This includes your diet, daily routine, exercise habits, and even your relationships. By taking a personalised approach, Ayurveda can help you take control of your health & well-being.
During our time together you will understand your body & health, as you explore the wisdom of Ayurveda. Following this will be a therapeutic clay workshop where you will be guided to make a pinch/thumb pot.
The focus will be on creating a personal connection with the clay rather than making the perfect pot. With mindfulness and in rhythm with the breath you will work to ease your mind and soothe your senses. We will finish with a closing circle during to share their reflections.

Prachi Deshpande - As an "Empowering Guide," I use Āyurveda to educate and accompany individuals on their journey to self-health empowerment. My vision is to spread the knowledge of Ayurveda so that people can live in harmony with themselves & their environment.
Viktoria Jeanroy - I make functional, unique pottery which aim to reflect the endless creativity that we all have in our hearts. Pottery is my meditation , it is about reconnecting with the present moment, returning to the beauty of simplicity and enjoying life at a slower pace.
