Our wellness consultations are based on traditional wisdom. The ancient science of Ayurveda, and Chinese dietary therapy, help us understand how the elements, space, air, fire, earth and water work in the body. Ayurveda explains how, when out of balance, the elements (known as ‘Doshas’) create ‘dis-ease’. Through diet and lifestyle choices, we can return to wellness. In our consultations we help you recognise your unique body type or constitution and identify which ‘Dosha’ is out of balance and how to redress this.
Digestive issues and weight loss
Many of the food combinations in the Western diet hamper Agni, especially when combined with a stressful lifestyle. Some people struggle to control their weight, even when eating very little. Conditions such as IBS, hyperacidity, GERD and allergies are on the increase. Unlike much of the dietary advice currently available, our consultations takes your unique constitution and current state of imbalance into account before making recommendations. And we also look at all lifestyle factors that may be impacting on health and vitality.
At Yoga & Spice we offer wellness consultations to retreat guests and also to visitors or by Skype. With supporting cooking or yoga sessions if required contact Lorraine to discuss or book an appointment.
