What to expect at the workshop?
A light-hearted educational experience for people in a like-minded community of animal lovers interested in natural living. You’ll learn the basic concepts of Ayurveda (the healing "science of life" from the East) and how to understand your dog better in body, mind and spirit. By receiving these teachings and a “Dog Dosha Quiz”, you will be able to interpret your dog’s mind-body personality (dosha). When you understand your dog's dosha, you know how to recognize where your dog may be imbalanced and exactly what you can do for them to help bring (and sustain) total wellbeing. You’ll come away from the workshop with an overall understanding of Ayurveda and specific natural healing tips to put in place to help your dog maintain vibrant health, good behavior, a peaceful demeanor, and a happy heart.

Other FAQ:

We lovingly ask that our canine companions do NOT attend this class. This will allow us to direct our attention to the learnings. However, a dog assistant (or two) will be present in each class :)

Do the concepts in this class apply to other animals besides dogs?

Yes! Ayurvedic concepts and the doshas apply to ALL of creation. The context of this class will be dogs but you will learn the general concepts and can apply them to other pets/animals… as well as yourself!
