Theobroma Cacao, familiar to many of us as chocolate, the mouthwatering sweet treat that is pressed & neatly formed into uniform rectangles, often wrapped up in gilded foil. But what is the story of this well-celebrated, well-known and yet mysterious plant?
Much like its distinguished flavors, Cacao holds notes of both bitterness and sweetness in its rich history. Originating in ancient Aztec culture, the medicine was later brought to Europe on its way to becoming a global commodity.
Melt into exploration of Cacao’s sweet saga with Giulia Conte (YA 200H Certified Instructor).
In this workshop we will:
Begin with a Ceremonial Cacao Circle, interwoven with informative narration of the history and healing benefits of raw cacao.
Be guided through a soothing, heart-centered yoga asana flow, facilitated by the energetic presence of this ancient medicine.
Participants will receive take-home literature that reiterates some of the note-worthy benefits and facts of the cacao plant.
