Summer Sun Safety
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
On this cold, cloudy day with damp rain and temperatures in the 50’s, it seems strange to be talking about sun exposure. But Memorial Weekend is here, and it’s certainly sunny somewhere!
Weather dependent, the beaches will be packed this holiday weekend, along with the risks of overexposure to the sun. Be aware – use sun protection and sun safety practices!
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.3 million people are diagnosed annually. Fortunately, skin cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer.
Unfortunately, skin cancer is increasing in the United States and the American Cancer Society estimates that one American dies every hour from skin cancer. The risk increases the more time we spend outdoors in the sun.
Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and highly treatable when detected early.
Finding our Center
Join world renowned teacher Rolf Gates for this special 3hr asana-based workshop. The session will be a balance of lecture and asana and will include elements of pranayama and meditation. We’ll explore the tools of yoga that allow us to stay connected to the truth of who we are as we practice new ways of being in the world. The pose is what we are doing, the yoga is how we are being in the pose.
All levels are welcome in this well rounded workshop.

So, what’s kitchari and what does it have to do with Ayurveda and, more importantly, you?
Kitchari is a traditional Ayurvedic dish that’s known to assist in detoxing the body and balancing all three doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Kitchari provides awesome nutrients while cleansing the toxins out of the body. It’s a great way to cleanse the body and soul in a gentle way.
Kitchari is made with mung beans, Basmati rice, seasonal vegetables, ghee and spices. The mung beans are known for their ability to remove toxins, specifically pesticides and insecticides, from the body. Mung beans are also a great source of protein and provide a source of good carbohydrates and fiber. It’s also a great dish for those having digestive problems and recovering from illness. There’s many versions of Kitchari out there from simple to more elaborate.
