Last week when I taught my Friday morning class, I continued to teach for the upcoming Kapha season. I incorporate Ayurveda into my class every week, giving suggestions about how to balance yourself with Dinacharya (daily routines) and Ritucharya (seasonal routines).
Creating a yoga sequence for a class I plan to teach always comes to me in the early morning. I’m an early riser and those dark early mornings seem to be my most creative time (just in case you didn’t know, early morning is vata time of day – and vata equals creativity!).
When the seasons change, we need to make changes to ourselves to stay in balance. Kapha season is arriving soon and this means you should make changes to your diet and lifestyle as well as changes in the way you practice yoga. Check out the blog I wrote about Kapha season in Ayurveda.
There’s a little confusion in the world of Ayurveda about when the seasons change (called Ritucharya) but I think I can burn up the fog on this issue.
When you think about chair yoga, do you picture in your mind weak people who have limited movement? Have you had thoughts that maybe those who practice yoga asana using a chair are lazy and just want to say they “do” yoga?
