Every year around this time the word resolution takes a front seat in many of our thoughts. I resolve to work less, spend more time with family, explore healthier eating, minimize alcohol consumption and the list goes on. Does this ring true for you?
While I believe it’s a wonderful idea to set intentions, make resolutions and step into a New Year and in this case New Decade with purpose, I am a bigger fan of Ayurvedic Lifestyle where stepping into each New Year is an opportunity to continue on the path toward health and balance. Knowing your unique physical and emotional constitution in advance and having a daily routine in place exclusive for your well being. Being familiar with living in harmony with the season, consuming local harvest, exercising for your particular body type are all avenues toward walking down your intended path.
This winter there are many opportunities to dive into ayurvedic yoga and lifestyle with me. Starting Thursday January 9 at 9:15am, I will be leading weekly Ayurvedic Yoga Lessons at Sanapurna Yoga and Ayurveda. Each class will be infused with ayurvedic wisdom, flow yoga and the unique energy you bring to practice.
January 18th, I will be leading an Introduction to Ayurveda, Yoga and the 20 Gunas Workshop also at Sanapurna Ayurveda and Yoga. In this workshop, you will discover the connection between Ayurveda and Yoga as it relates to yoga practice. We will explore ayurvedic constitutions: vata, pitta and kapha as well as the 20 gunas(qualities) which make up our body types. Through discussion and practice, you will discover your unique body type. And have the chance to balance vata, the predominant winter dosha with a warm, nourishing yoga practice designed to leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to embrace the cold winter months ahead.
On February 23, I am excited to lead an Ayurvedic Yoga workshop in the US at YogaSmith in Portmouth, NH. This Workshop will be both practice and discussion, introduction to Ayurveda and an opportunity to directly experience Ayurvedic Yoga. You will learn about the Ayurvedic Body Constitutions having the chance to discover your own Body Type. The class will focus on inviting warmth, balance and peaceful energy into body, mind and spirit.
One of my resolutions for 2020 is to be an ambassador for Ayurveda and Yoga, sharing inspiration, recipes, ayurvedic lifestyle and yoga with the intention of guiding people toward continued health and balance. Paving the way for New Year’s resolutions to be an enhancement to each New Year and Healthy Lifestyle being the New Normal.
