Tahoe Food Hub: Learn About Ayurveda

In this workshop, we will explore what is Ayurveda and provide a general understanding to its basic principles. If you have ever wondered what is Ayurveda, this is your chance to learn more. Ayurvedic medicine is not centered around symptom management or pharmaceutical treatments but instead generates healing through dietary choices and working with the five elements of fire, water, air, space and earth. Taste some food samples sourced locally from the Tahoe Food Hub and walk-away with an essential oil spritzer you make yourself. 

The workshop will be lead by Madona Casini with Skin Food Dermatology. Madona specializes in sports nutrition and skin care. She is an Ayurvedic Practitioner with over 2,000 hours of training at California College of Ayurveda and 20 years of Yoga and Pilates teaching. Her mission is to promote personal healing by balancing body, mind and spirit. 


The event is FREE but donations to Tahoe Food Hub are welcome. The talk is from 6-7pm. All Shop Talks take place at the Tahoe Food Hub’s Farm Shop located over by the Truckee Airport at 12116 Chandelle Way, Unit D1 (crossroads of Soaring Way and Aviation Way). Let us know you’re coming by visiting our Facebook event page, click here!
