Ayurveda for Kids with Cate Stillman

Ayurveda for Kids with Cate Stillman

Can’t believe it … I fed my kids completely the wrong thing for breakfast (according to Ayurvedic principles). But what did I know. I’ve eaten it all my life.

Thank goodness for Cate Stillman, YogaHealer, and her easy to employ body care skills.

As I spoke with Cate during our recent interview the idea of adopting a few basic Ayurvedic practices into our lives felt more and more doable. I have a very basic understanding of Ayurveda and know I’m a strong Pitt with Vata tendencies and some ways to help keep that in balance. But there is tons I don’t know, especially as it relates to my family and raising my children with awareness of their bodies. Sure we do yoga together, make what I believe to be healthy food choices most of the time (… I do love my chocolate), and try to get adequate rest. However, I also know that we could live healthier, more vital lives with a few tweaks here and there.

Enjoy Cate’s:

  • suggestions for curing mouth breathing and the reasons why nostril breathing is so important
  • recipe for Boo Candy and why you’ll want to make it part of your daily diet (I’m making some today)
  • tips on living a snot-free life
  • and much more

Intrigued by Ayurveda and nature remedies for your family. Enjoy an hour w Cate during her Snot Free Kids WEBINAR  hosted on Kids Yoga Academy.  

Here is the article from MindBodyGreen that we refer to in the interview – Got Snot? Top 3 Reasons (and Solutions) from Ayurveda
