Due to COVID-19 social distancing protocol
we will be holding this workshop as a live-stream class through zoom!

If you’ve ever been curious about how to align your lifestyle most optimally with nature, this workshop is for you!

Sona will introduce the principles and pillars of Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old holistic healing system and sister science to Yoga.
I will gently guide your attention towards a way of living that is aligned with the inherent rhythms of nature, that is also within you. You will learn about the five elements and the doshas and discover how to adapt your lifestyle to the environment, season, time of life, times of day and night, and more.
I will give you the tools to determine your personal doshic constitution and show you indicators to help you assess your current imbalances. We will discuss the true meaning of health, the causes of disease and how to both remove and minimize toxins in the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Most importantly, you will learn how to adopt dinacharya, a daily routine of self-care, so that you can practice what you’ve learned on a daily basis. My aim is to make the wisdom that has been passed down from our elders accessible to you. Ayurvedic medicine is increasingly and especially relevant within the context of our modern lifestyle.

Please bring your curiosities, a notebook, and a pen!

Date & Time:
April 19 @ 12:30pm – 3pm
Cost: $25


About the instructor: Sona Desai Buchanan

Sona Desai Buchanan

Sona gratefully attained her RYT-200 teaching certification in 2009 and is currently working towards her RYT-500. She is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT) with over 1,500 hours of teaching experience.  Her classes range from challenging, playful and dynamic to fluid and restorative but ultimately weave together exploration and self-study.

Sona’s teaching practice is about holding space and encouraging people to a deeper knowing and acceptance of all parts of themselves and in doing so, guiding them to a higher capacity for love. Concurrently, Sona’s passion for the healing arts guided her to Thai Yoga and Qi Healing over a decade ago.  In 2014, using learned and intuitive knowledge of body mechanics and energetic systems, she crafted a unique blend of these complimentary modalities named Integrative Thai Yoga.

Shortly thereafter, Sona opened the doors to LOOM Wellness + Yoga, a small studio space in Raleigh, NC.  After 2 years, LOOM relocated with Sona to Tacoma, WA, where she continues to serve as both teacher and practitioner in private sessions, workshops, and Community Bodywork offerings.
