Breakout Session: Eating with the Seasons: An Ayurvedic Way to Feel Your Best This Fall/ Winter!

Bio: For Emily Griffin, living well is all about flow.

In college, major digestive disorders sapped Emily’s energy, disrupted her once clear skin, and stole precious time from her busy schedule. What’s worse, Emily found that she wasn’t being taken seriously by her once trusted doctors.

Frustrated, she began researching homeopathic and Ayurvedic modalities, and began practicing yoga regularly. Though she had been athletic her entire life, it wasn’t until she discovered yoga that she felt a positive shift in her entire body.

Ayurveda helped Emily learn which food worked especially for her. Combined with yoga and holistic healing, her health returned, and she found she was feeling better than ever. When a studio manager reached out to her to teach yoga, it was a dream come true: Emily could now help others feel as good as she did.

These days, through her yoga classes and as an Ayurvedic practitioner, Emily helps clients all over Boston strike the balance between living well, but not becoming obsessed by the latest wellness trends. There is a give and take—a flow—to living healthy, and she’s a firm believer that, when paired with a mindful approach to food and movement, laughing with friends and the occasional indulgence go a long way to living well.

The W.E.L.L. Summit welcomes Emily Griffin as she leads session attendees in discovering the secrets of Ayurveda, how they apply to you, and how to eat with the seasons to ensure you feel your best this Fall & Winter!
