Fall and early winter are seasons of transformation. We can see this all around us in nature as the leaves are falling, the air is crisp and the weather is changeable and unpredictable at times. And just like nature, It is important that we change with the seasons by adapting daily habits and lifestyle practices that help us to harmonize and stay balanced during these months.
According to Ayurveda, The vata dosha is most prevalent during autumn and early winter. Vata governs movement in the body as well as the functioning the nervous system. Vata has qualities that are cold, dry, rough, light, changeable, irregular, and that moves. With the abundance of vata energy and qualities circulating during this time of year, our bodies and minds can become overwhelmed and out of balance. In this fun class, we will talk about a myriad of ways to maintain balance such as incorporating specific herbs, yoga poses, foods, and lifestyle choices that naturally hold the opposite qualities of the vata dosha. These are tools that can last a lifetime and even applying a few of them can help you create an awesome state of wellness throughout the seasons.
