Moon Jewel Classes

We offer classes in introductory Ayurveda, Ayurvedic cooking, spice blending, traditional herbal formulas, pranayama, meditation and Asana for your dosha.

Please contact us if you would like to host a class for your group or your Yoga Teacher Training requirements.

I’ve attended classes in which we learned how to administer treatments like deeply warming penetrating ginger compresses to another participant and then receive in return, or how to collectively (in the round) make deliciously aromatic seasonal (spice) masalas for health & well being, by hand, with mortars & pestles, while joining our voices together to chant mantras into them.
Laura is REAL and loves & cares about providing a sacred space for each person to feel more & more at home within. And in that way, this world, & I, am in a better place because of her willingness to witness all of it, ALL OF IT.

I was privileged to spend a weekend of intensive Ayurvedic training with Laura in the fall of 2016. Laura is a gifted teacher with a delightful sense of humor which makes her transmissions of ancient Vedic practices grounded, practical and approachable. Laura taught us several sadhanas in the training which have continued to offer me profound healing on a daily basis. Since attending her training I’ve learned to live less out of habit and more out of intent by reflecting on a quote of hers “Turn your habituals into rituals”. I look forward to studying with Laura again!

This class is appropriate for both those within and past their cycle as well as those that medically no longer have a cycle. Join in sisterhood to learn how and why to align your cycle with the new moon.

All survivors of miscarriage, abortion, sexual abuse or sexual trauma are welcome to participate. We will learn the tools to tap into our inner medicine to heal ourselves and perform a simple yet profound ritual accompanied by chanting the name of the Goddess in support of our sisters. We will seal our support by sharing food with a ‘sweet pot-luck’ and tea. (This is a donation based class.)
