Your takeaways:

  • understand hormonal health from the ayurveda perspective
  • gain practical knowledge to manage common symptoms like dryness, weight gain, mood swings, hot flashes etc using Ayurvedic techniques, herbal remedies, and lifestyle adjustments
  • acquire insights into self-care rituals, nutrition, and daily practices that promote harmony and vitality in your life
  • learn simple techniques to bring calmness and harmony to your nervous system 
  • understand how to develop greater stability, vitality and self-compassion through this natural transition

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. 

12 pm - 1 pm: Delicious organic homemade vegan Indian lunch menu by Deepty. 

Between the two sessions indulge in the authentic flavors of India, lovingly cooked to nourish you. This culinary experience embraces the essence of homemade goodness and the richness of Indian cuisine.

1 pm - 3 pm:  Therapeutic clay workshop by Viktoria who will guide you on how 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. 

You will: 

  • Explore the clay while learning how to knead it
  • Comprehend how to shape a functional pot from a lob of clay by using the ancient pinching technique
  • Try other structure making techniques like carving or using a stamp on your pinch pot 

3pm - 3:30 pm: Closing ceremony

Your Facilitators: 

Prachi Deshpande - As an "Empowering Guide," I use Āyurveda to educate and accompany individuals on their journey to a happy, healthy long life. 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. 

Deepty Mudhra -  As a passionate home cook, I consider cooking as a meditative therapy which took off as a hobby and now turned into passion which I enjoy to the core. Through my page @littledesiresculinary, I  aim to introduce authentic lost recipes and versatility of the Indian cuisine and would passionately  love to spread flavours and tastes beyond Naan and Curries. 

Your ticket includes:

  • a delicious organic vegan homemade indian lunch
  • all material required for the ceramic session 
  • burning and glazing of your pinch pot - please note that your pot will be glazed by Viktoria (we will agree on the color before) and therefore needs to stay in the atelier for glazing & 2 rounds of burning. You can either pick it up in about 2-3 weeks time or ask it to be sent by post for a small fee.
  • refreshments

Don't miss this opportunity to learn, relax, and unleash your artistic abilities in a supportive and nurturing environment. 

Join us if you are eager to embrace this natural transition with the knowledge and tools to experience it as it should be!
