What is in Yogi Bear’s basket?
Some of you will have seen my new picnic basket in class. Have you wondered what is inside?
Well, it is full of some of my favourite Ayurvedic packs; mostly organic, carefully sourced and all hand blended by myself to share some of the remarkable wisdom of Ayurveda with you. Over the coming weeks I will highlight my offerings.
This is the most popular after the healing meal of Kitchari. It has been helping many and some with weight loss!
Amalaki fruit (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki fruit (Terminalia belerica), Haritaki fruit (Terminalia chebula).
Triphala is recommended and used more than any other Ayurvedic herbal formulation.
Popular for its unique ability to gently cleanse and detoxify the system while simultaneously replenishing and nourishing it, this traditional formula supports the proper functions of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and genitourinary systems. Translated as “three fruits”, it is composed of the dried fruits of amalaki, bibhitaki and haritaki, triphala readily removes excess vata, pitta and kapha doshas (the constitutions) from the body, bringing balance and proper functioning to the system. It is commonly taken as a daily supplement to help maintain balance of the doshas.

I now have a large pack which is enough for 90 days for $15. It is 100% organic and comes from India.
As many pathogens are destroyed in the digestive tract, it is important to cultivate a strong digestion or agni.
The stronger the digestive fire, the stronger the mental and physical stamina, the stronger the immune system, the stronger the health and the brighter the glow of the skin.
It can be bought on the website or delivered to you in class.
May you be well
