Fall is a time of transition.  We see the transition in nature everywhere we look.  The drastic change in temperature, hints to us to prepare for the colder months ahead. From the trees letting go of its protective leafy barrier, to the browning of the earth, and the wind picking up a crisper, dryer air – these are all signs that colder temperatures and the winter season are around the corner.

 

WHY CHANGE UP YOUR ROUTINE SEASONALLY?

The transition of elemental qualities happens within our bodies as well.  Have you noticed your body showing signs that the heat and wet qualities of summer (like radiant skin, and luscious hair) have started to change, leaving you with with dryer skin and hair?  Not just physical changes – you may notice a difficulty concentrating and sleeping, and the greater desire for heavier and warmer foods?  These is all part of the natural cycle in nature – both in our external and internal landscapes.

To take on this transition, without allowing too many imbalances to occur, we need to offer time to connect inward and understand what we need to balance and how to bring energy back into daily life.  Such imbalances you may be feeling due to the fall/winter season (and vata qualities) are: irritability, increased anxiety, trouble sleeping, difficulties concentrating, challenges digesting and eliminating or simply stubborn dry skin, that won’t nourish with more lotion…

Moving with the seasons by adjusting your daily routing with a holistic approach to your diet and personal practice (in mindfulness, movement and self-care), will off-set the effects of each season, so you can better maintain your internal sense of equilibrium throughout the year.

WHAT IS THE AYURVEDA-YOGA APPROACH ALL ABOUT?

Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences.  They both stem from the Vedic teachings and are meant to be practiced together.  In short, yoga creates balance between mind, emotions and senses with the greater goal of reaching enlightenment.  Ayurveda shares in the same principles and offers daily self-care practices to keep the body in a healthy state of being to support the practice of yoga.  After-all, without a healthy body, we are unable to reach deeper states of enlightenment through the mind.  We need the one to practice the other.

Ayurvedic medicine is based on the principle that every individual has a unique constitution that is related to the energies in the body.  A balanced constitution is optimal for health; likewise, an imbalanced constitution is susceptible to illnesses of the mind and body.  Central to ayurveda and yoga is the need to individualize teachings for each person’s unique nature and changing conditions.  Our constitutions are said to be determined by the three vital energies of doshas known as vata, pitta and kapha.  The doshas represent the five elements, which compose everything in the universe: space, air, fire, earth and water.

Though it is important to know our “birth” constitution, or dosha prakruti, it can be difficult to evaluate by questionnaire alone and can confuse the newcomer to Ayurveda.  What is often more practical for us in daily life is to understand when we are out of balance and to identify the dosha vikruti (imbalance).  By identifying the imbalance we can gently lead it back to its proper home and alleviate the turmoil it causes when it begins to move from its natural state.  There are many signs and symptoms associated with doshas being out fo balance.  By recognizing the culprit, you can being to bring it back to balance by leveraging self-care and nutrition as well as yogic asanas, pranayam (breathing) and mindfulness practices.
