Asana and Ayurveda for the Season

with Sarah Guglielmi MS, E-RYT-500, AYS

Wednesday, Oct. 4, 7-9 pm

At its core, Ayurveda understands that all of us have a unique “nature”, or Ayurvedic constitution, that follows the rhythms of mother nature. Fall is the “vata” time, characterized by the elements of air and space. As the summer heat cools, the winds blow, temperatures vary, and nature begins to dry out. Internally this can leave us feeling restless, dry, and fatigued. In this class we will review the concept of ayurvedic constitution, and how it is affected by the season. We will close with an asana practice to ground and restore and the optional sampling of a nourishing nighttime drink of spiced milk (non-dairy alternative provided). Use this nightly ritual to nourish and hydrate during the dry season. Attention Yoga Teachers: This course qualifies for 2 continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance.
