Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Time: 10:00am to noon
Agni is a vedic term meaning burning, transforming or perceiving. Our health largely depends on how well we are able to digest, absorb and assimilate nutrients from our food. Agni (digestive enzymes) is the internal digestive fire that transforms all food as well as sensations coming into the body. Food conversion to energy requires an essential biochemical reaction. We can suffer from several health issues like stomachache, diarrhea, or constipation if our digestive fire is not working right.
Join this class to learn about your digestive fire- what can you do to enhance it to live a healthy lifestyle. Take home some spices.
