MEREDITH — Sacred Waters Yoga at Mill Falls is delighted to present a Weekend of Ayurveda with Kate O'Donnell from "Ayurveda Boston". Dates for these events are Friday May 16 through Sunday, May 18. The weekend long intensive can be attended in entirety or in part; join a Friday evening Ayurveda cooking class, an all-day Workshop Saturday-Sunday teaching the principals of Ayurveda and/or a Sunday morning Ayurveda Yoga class in which Kate weaves the principles of Ayurveda throughout the yoga practice.

Kate's wealth of experience and knowledge offers a deeply foundational, practical and experiential immersion into the theory and practice of the principles of Ayurveda.

Ayurveda originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and is the oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. This system encourages us to catch imbalance before it begins to create disease. The Ayurvedic system of medicine prescribes changes, often simple ones, in diet, lifestyle, and environment to bring individuals into balance with the elements of their constitution, climate, and daily life.

Instructor Kate O'Donnell began yoga in South India at age 20. After 14 years of dedication to the Ashtanga system, Kate has been authorized to teach the Primary and Intermediate series by the K Patthabi Jois Institute of Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India. She is director of a Mysore program in Boston's South End. Her personal healing with a doctor in Mysore led to a love for the ancient healing system and inspired her to pursue studies at the Kripalu School of Ayurveda. Kate is a Certified Ayurvedic Consultant and Yoga Specialist. Her Ayurvedic lifestyle intensives, food, and yoga workshops aim to help others come closer to their true nature.

Cost of the workshops are as follows: Full Weekend of Ayurveda: $177, Ayurveda Cooking Class only (Friday evening): $33
Ayurveda yoga Class only (Sunday morning): $20.
