The hot summer months increase the natural fire in the body, known in Ayurveda as Pitta. Pitta governs digestion and transformation in body and mind, and is responsible for your ability to process food and information, extracting what you need and eliminating the rest. Pitta is the source of energy, and our natural passion, but when nature conspires to stoke too much fire, aggravating Pitta, we suffer from hyper acidity, high stress, skin inflammation, irritability and ultimately total burn out. Through dietary and lifestyle recommendations, learn how to tame the flames and enjoy summer's heat with these cooling Ayurvedic tips.
Following this informative lecture, Erin Alexander (RYT), will lead you in a 60 minute yoga practice that works to balance the fire of summer: cooling pranayama (breath), mudra (hand gesture) and asana (yoga poses) will leave you feeling easy-breezy, calm, and relaxed so that you can get on with that busy summer schedule with centered ease and presence.
If summer's heat leaves you hankering for shade join Carissa Zacharias, Ayurveda Health Counselor Intern and Erin Alexander, RYT for this Pitta Balancing workshop.
