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.
Tong Ren combines Western knowledge of anatomy and physiology with the ancient princle of “Chi” to create a powerful healing modality.
In this workshop, you will learn the theory of Tong Ren and experience this very relaxing energy therapy through an experiental group healing session. Tong Ren is known to complement other forms of treatment and proveds a safe, non-invasive alternative for people seeking to improve their well-being and restore the body’s natural flow of nurturing energy.
We welcome participants to come with and disclose their health concerns, challenges and medical diagnosis for healing. A Q&A will follow the healing class.
Noel Poirer, medical board licensed acupuncturist, will answer your questions about how Tong Ren may help you. Noel has studied and trained with Tom Tam in the Tam Healing System. In 2010 he became a certified Tong Ren Practitioner. Through is work at The Collective Healing Center, Noel has gained valuable experience and training in this unique approach to treatment.

“Blockage is disease/Flow is health”
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.

“Blockage is disease/Flow is health”
Through the lens of Ayurveda we are what we “digest” not what we eat.
If we don’t digest our food we start to form “Ama”. Ama is a Sanskrit word, which literally means undigested or uncooked. The first stage of disease is also sometimes called Ama “toxins”.
Ayurveda also explains another entity called “Agni”. This word literally means fire. But in this context it means digestive fire. As long as the digestive fire is strong, Ama cannot be formed in the body. Agni (digestive fire) helps to melt down and flush out Ama (toxins) from the body.
Weak Agni (digestive fire) becomes weak by eating out of one’s constitution (Vata, Pitta or Kapha), eating the same foods, overeating, drinking too much water with meals, staying up late, resisting the urge to eat and eating at irregular times.
Presence of Ama (toxins)
Painful or swollen joints
Symptoms of Ama in the body:
Irregular appetite or reduced appetite
Skin is dull and lusterless with blemishes, acne
Bloated stomach, gases, flatulence
Metallic taste in the mouth
White coating on the tongue
Foul smelling breath and sweat
Constipation, foul smelling stools which may be sticky, heavy and sink.
Lack of mental clarity and energy.
A sense of heaviness in the abdomen, legs or body as a whole
Weary and unenthusiastic feeling
Blocked feeling anywhere in the body, including constipation, sinus congestion and difficulty in breathing
Waking feeling tired even after a good nights sleep
