Seasonal Kitchari Class + Tips for Boosting Wellness in the coming Season @ Psinergy Natural Health & Holistic Wellness | Saint Paul | Minnesota | United States

Every two months we experience a seasonal shift which can be a tough time for our body and mind.

In this workshop we will make a kitchari for us to share that evening and while that is cooking you will learn:

  • about the energies of the coming season we are going into
  • What your Prakruti (original make-up) and Vikruti (your imbalances) are
  • different ways you can customize your kitchari for you/vegetables & other modifications for each dosha
  • tips for natural ways to help reduce stress and boost your overall wellness for the season to come

This class will be taught on a recurring basis right around the start of the new seasonal switches.

Kitchari Kit detailed information:

These kits provide all the basic supplies you need to do a 7 day cleanse.

  • (Standard kit) Organic Yellow Mung Dal (1.63 lbs) and Organic Basmati Rice (3.15 lbs): When cooked together these two Ayurvedic staples combine to make a delicious, thick soup called kitchari. Easy to digest, kitchari is a nutritious whole food that will sustain you throughout your cleanse.
  • (Standard kit) Kitchari Spice Mix (3.5 oz): This traditional spice mix helps stimulate your digestive fire so you can absorb all the wholesome goodness from your food. The spice mix includes mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ginger, turmeric, natural mineral salt and asafoetida and will be added to the rice and dal when you prepare your kitchari. Recipe included with the kit.
  • (Standard kit) Organic Ghee (7.5 oz): Made from 100% organic, sweet cream butter that was churned from the goodness of milk produced by grass-fed and pastured cows, this rich Ayurvedic treat is said to nourish both body and mind. The ghee will provide the kitchari with an oily quality that helps loosen and remove toxins during the cleanse. It also helps to strengthen the digestive fire and promotes healthy digestion.
  • (added to Cleanse & Deluxe kits) Triphala Tablets (1 bottle): This formula contains three of the most important Ayurvedic herbs for detoxification and rejuvenation. Made from the powder of three super fruits, Triphala will promote healthy elimination during the cleanse while also replenishing the tissues and supporting your immune system.
  • (added to Cleanse & Deluxe kits) Organic Sesame Oil (1 16 fl oz bottle): This luxurious staple of any Ayurvedic massage will ground you, bringing calm to your nervous system and lubrication to your tissues. Use daily during your Ayurvedic self-massage.
  • (added to Cleanse & Deluxe kits) Pukka Detox Tea: During the cleanse, sip warm water and tea throughout the day, gently nudging the toxins to leave your system. Chosen by master herbalist Sebastian Pole, this herbal blend helps remove excess vata, pitta, and kapha from the system. A cup of caffeine-free Detox tea will soothe your whole body.
  • (added to Deluxe kit) Chyavanprash (1 jar): After the cleanse, take 1 teaspoon a day of this herbal jam. This tridoshic formula stimulates metabolism and enkindles the digestive fire without aggravating pitta. It balances vata and kapha while strengthening the body against the effects of a stressful lifestyle. The energizing herbs bolster the immune system and help maintain health and well-being throughout the year.
  • (added to Deluxe kit) Nasya Oil (1 bottle): Healthy uncongested breathing is important to ensure proper flow of prana throughout the head and body. When an excess of bodily fluids accumulates in the sinus, throat, nose or head areas, it is best eliminated through the nose. Administration of herbally infused oil, or nasya, helps facilitate this cleansing process. Nasya Oil soothes and protects the nasal passages and helps relieve sinus congestion. Daily nasal lubrication helps to release tension in the head and relieve accumulated stress. Balancing for vata, pitta, and kapha.
  • (added to Deluxe kit) Nasal Rinse Cup: Our Nasal Rinse Cup is designed for ease of use and has a heavy-duty construction that is dishwasher safe. Crafted from sturdy, lead-free ceramic and coated with food-grade sealant glaze. Instructions for use included.
  • (added to Deluxe kit) Tongue Cleaner: According to Ayurveda, cleaning the tongue is an important part of the daily oral hygiene routine, along with regular brushing and flossing of the teeth. Gently scraping the tongue with a tongue cleaner can effectively reduce the bacteria in the mouth that cause bad breath. Our specially designed tongue cleaner is made in the U.S.A. with premium quality stainless steel.


What is Kitchari?

Kitchari is pretty much a staple within Ayurveda, and there are many, many varieties out there. The basics of all kitchari is that it is rice and beans, with various spices. Kitchari is meant to be easy to digest, cleansing and strengthening without robbing the system of energy like a normal detox often does, and hence can be done a regular basis.
