Summer Ayurveda and Restorative Yoga
07/27/2019 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM$50
According to Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, the definition of health is change. That means not only how we as individuals change over time, but also how we change in response to the reliable cycles of nature. We feel this primarily during seasonal shifts, when the unique balance of the five elements (air, ether, earth, water, and fire) within each of us can move into harmony—or conflict—with the elements around us.
As we find ourselves more deeply entrenched in the summer season, FIRE and WATER elements—the pitta dosha—are most present in the hot, humid, incendiary air around us. We can feel that in our physical bodies, but also in the form of emotional and mental irritation, inflammation, and fiery drive to do, and play, more in the long days of summer sun.
In this immersive workshop, you’ll learn about and experience Ayurvedic routines and practices to balance excess heat in any form. We’ll review the basics of the three doshas, or constitutions, and how each interacts with the pitta dosha that’s dominant in summertime; share nutrition and self-care guidelines for balancing pitta; and enjoy a luscious restorative practice with cooling pranayama and hands-on assists, and light post-class refreshments to bring you to the ultimate state of chill even when the weather is hot.
