Ayurveda and Yoga for Healthy Weight and Wellness


Join yoga teacher and former Dean of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda, Larissa Hall Carlson, and Ayurvedic health counselor and yoga therapist, Kari Harendorf, for an informative, uplifting, and compassionate approach to eating for optimal metabolism, digestion, elimination, and dosha-balancing. 

Learn how Ayurveda can joyfully provide a personalized approach to healthy weight management and your overall wellness as you:

  • Understand which Ayurvedic diet, lifestyle, and self-care techniques to prioritize.
  • Discover a sustainable movement routine for ongoing body-mind comfort and harmony.  
  • Explore gentle yoga poses, slow dosha-balancing sequences, and other practices. 
  • Embrace ancient wellness strategies for modern times.

Whether you consider yourself underweight, overweight, or in-between, Ayurveda's wholesome and harmonizing approach to diet and lifestyle for the doshas will help you find a more comfortable and sustainable balance. 

NOTE The program is designed for anyone interested in incorporating gentle/intermediate yoga and Ayurveda into their wellness practices for healthy weight and wellness. No prior experience is necessary. All are welcome.
