Natasha Peiris presented ‘Self Care as Activism’, a Ayurvedic Ritual Self Care workshop that invited you to decolonise wellness with a ‘last drop’ of warm, herbal Ayurvedic oil. ‘Abhyanga’ (pronounced Ah-bae-yung-gah) is the Sanskrit term for self massage or oiling one's body to nourish and self heal. In Sanskrit the word ‘Sneha’ is the same word for oil and love. Being oiled is believed to have a similar effect as being filled with love.
