Boost Your “Reserves” (Ojas) for More Energy & Better Health with Jamie
Saturday, November 17, 9:30 am to 10:30 am ($20)
As children, we had boundless “reserves” of energy, endurance, and resilience that were easily replenished with naps and playtime. As adults, our lives are far more structured and demanding, and things like mental stress, over-working, chronic physical strain, and even poor diet and self-care can leave us tapping our reserves, or “Ojas,” just to make it through the day.
Unfortunately, letting Ojas run low can start a cascading effect that leads to compromised health and dysfunction. In this informative workshop, we’ll talk about the source of Ojas, how it impacts your mind, body, and spirit, and how to rebuild your reserves for more energy and to align with better health.
