UO Happenings: Ayurvedic + Self Care Workshop Recap


This past Saturday, we hosted Rachel Musquiz from Austin's Curcuma for an Intro to Ayurveda + Self Care Workshop at Space 24 Twenty. 

Beginning at 2pm, each participant recieved a self-care starter kit, consisting of a tongue scraper (helping remove the bacteria-filled coating on your tongue, combat bad breathe and stimulate digestion), Curcuma's Golden Paste (used to make Curcuma's infamous Golden Mylk at home), Abhyanga Oil (ideal for calming, self-massages in the evening) and a dry brush (stimualting the lymphatic system among other benefits). 

After reviewing the components of the kit, attendees took an Ayurvedic Quiz to learn their dosha. Rachel explained each of the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) and how they can represent different energies that define every person's makeup. Knowing your dosha can help live a healthier, more balanced life. 

All in all, we felt super refreshed and inspired after learning and sharing with the 14 ladies in attendance. Did you miss this month's workshop? We're looking to host something self-care centered soon, so stay tuned!
