Introduction to Ayurveda: The Six Tastes & Seasonal Health with Sachi Doctor

Curious about Ayurveda, and how it might fit into your life? Rasa, the Sanskrit word for taste, translates to experience, enthusiasm, and essence. Accordingly, taste not only determines how we experience our food,

but ultimately, the overall flavor of our lives. On a functional level, each of the six tastes—sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, astringent—ensures we eat what our body needs and, therefore, has a vital role to play in our

overall well-being. If you're missing one of the six, you're left with anything from cravings to poor digestion. Taste really is a natural map towards vibrant health!

Join Ayurvedic practitioner and holistic health educator Sachi Doctor in an exploration of these six tastes and how they correlate to common spices. You'll learn how to spice mixes to maximize their benefits and will make a your own fall spice blend to support you through the season.
