Winter is dry, cold, and windy. When your mind is overly active with thoughts, your body fatigued from moving too quickly, or stiff from the shift to dry, colder weather, a vata soothing yoga practice brings warmth, stability and suppleness.
Ayurveda is the Vedic science of living a life of optimal health and healing, in tune with Mother Nature. Ayurveda ascribes three constitutional types: vata, pitta and kapha. Vata governs movement in the body, the nervous system and elimination. We all have some degree of each of the three constitutions. When vata is out of balance, which is common in our high-stress society, symptoms such as digestive distress, dry skin, achy joints, anxiety, low energy, and irregular, insufficient sleep patterns begin to set in.
In this vata soothing sequence, Dynamic Gentle Yoga gives our bodies and minds the opportunity to manifest the relaxation response—a key to optimal health, as it can help lower the risk of heart disease, obesity, anxiety, depression, and other stress-related diseases. Rudy’s guidance will help you to find balance in your yoga practice and you will learn some Ayurvedic tips to boost your resilience.
Experience a vata soothing practice that nourishes your constitution during this vata time of year. If you are in mid-life or beyond, you are also in a more vata time of life so this is the perfect time to learn how to optimally soothe your nervous system through yoga.
