Seasonal Spring Shift – Boost Your Immunity with Ayurvedic Self-Care with Bashari George

April 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm $76

Seasonal Spring Shift – Boost Your Immunity with Ayurvedic Self-Care

As we shift into Spring nature reflects back to us our readiness to bloom into the next season. The greenery and vibrancy of wild places call us out of our winter caves and back into the world. This is Kapha season.

Kapha is made of the Earth and Water elements. It holds the attributes of cold, cohesion, slowness, and stability. As the microcosm of our body reflects the macrocosm of nature these attributes build up in our bodies and can cause congestion and stagnation. Spring respiratory allergies, circulatory issues, and slow digestion can increase during this time of year.

I invite you to claim the juiciness of this time of year and bring radiant balance to your body. Ayurveda has potent techniques and cleanses to detox. We restore lightness to the body through diet (ahara), lifestyle (vihara), herbal medicines (aushadhi), yoga (asana), and breathwork (pranayama). Be supported in community to jumpstart your spring wellness with these powerful wisdom practices.

In this in-person workshop you will learn:

  • Herbal medicines to boost immunity and rekindle your digestive fire

  • Ayurvedic Self- Care routines to bring energy and flow through detox & cleansing

  • Breathwork practices to build heat in the body and move stagnation

  • Which seasonal spring foods are beneficial in balancing excess Kapha


  • Recipes to incorporate into your Spring wellness routine

  • Live Demos of Ayurvedic treatments for sinus health

Saturday, April 29th, 2 pm- 4 pm $31, $49, or $76 Sliding Scale Early Bird Price.

The workshop is in person at Kokoro Clinic 339 15th St. Suite 333 in Oakland

I am Bashari, I come from a lineage of powerful women, healers, artists, and mothers who fought fiercely for their children. I am an Ayurvedic practitioner who supports women in navigating the arch of womanhood with sacred wisdom practices to cultivate a deeper connection with our inner selves, our bodily knowing, and our authentic power.

I am here in service to women who have been dismissed or unseen in their search for full-body health and wellness. Whose essences both physically and spiritually have become obscured by the toxicity of how our society treats the feminine. We can claim our power back. We can fully inhabit our bodies and our desires. What parts of you are hiding in fear of being truly seen? What forgotten parts need love and nourishment and the safety of surrender? There is a home for you here.


Throughout my journey through womanhood from amenorrhea (the absence of a period) to a healthy pregnancy to postpartum healing my questioning and inner knowing were dismissed by western medicine. I survived a traumatic birth experience and obstetric violence. My healing journey has been a process of unfolding, of accessing deeper parts of myself. We must face our trauma in order to release it but grief is not meant to be held alone. It is through connection to nature, the divine, ritual, meditation, and beloved community that we heal. There is a rupture but there is always repair. I found my medicine within holistic health and Ayurveda. I also uncovered my voice and found the courage to use it in support of others seeking healing.

When we return to our bodies we connect with the earth, with our universal selves. We celebrate the lush abundance of our being. That we are enough just in our being, not based on our productivity. When we nourish our bodies this visceral knowledge grows. The ability to receive grows in the right relationship to the ability to give.

I want to live in a world where we give each other permission. Permission to release the weight of grief and shame. Permission to take up space and be witnessed. To be truly seen, celebrated, and held in all our messy complexity and imperfection. To be real, raw, and messy in our humanness. We are each other’s medicine.
