Yoga and Ayurveda for Every Body

“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use. When diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” — Ayurvedic proverb

Food, according to the ancient school of Ayurveda, is divine medicine with the ability to heal; nevertheless, the finest foods for one individual may not be good to another. Ayurveda is a lifestyle that understands the ever-changing needs of each individual, unlike many diets with inflexible, one-size-fits-all guidelines.

Ayurveda is holistic system of medical science originating in India that is over 5,000 years old and is the sister science to yoga. It is one of the oldest systems of healing yet the most modern and influential of all medicines. The Sanskrit words “Ayu” or “life” and “veda” or “science or knowledge”, translates to the “science or knowledge of life”. In Hindu tradition, this knowledge was regarded as a gift to ALL of humanity, regardless of race, creed, or gender.

Take a journey to wellness with yogi Chef Jessica Catalano and learn how to enjoy eating for your body’s individual needs. Find out what foods are ideal for your body by determining your dominant Dosha, or three energies that circulate the body, which heavily influences your well-being. Learn how to alter your own marijuana eating habits to reflect the seasons with fresh local ingredients full of prana, or life force. You’ll learn the importance and game changer of purifying your marijuana, or bhanga in Sanskrit, before infusing it into edibles to stop unwanted side effects.

Catalano grew up alongside Sikh and Hindu traditions through close family friends of her parents, who were treated as family. It was through this upbringing that she was able to learn Southern Asian cuisine, culture, and medicine. Chef Catalano draws upon her experience growing up as a child, as a 14-year raw foodist, a professional cannabis chef, pioneer in the cannabis industry, and as a yoga teacher to help people reach their fullest human potential through the ayurvedic lifestyle and use of medicinal marijuana.
