As I write this, a definite hint of fall is in the air. It is drier, windy, cool, irregular - as in warm one day cool the next- hey wait, that sounds very Vata! Indeed we are moving into fall, which is Vata season. As mindful yogis and students of Ayurveda, we recognize there is a change happening. And to keep ourselves in balance we need to change with the season. A couple of tips...more moisture, as in plenty of fluids, moist foods and healthy oils-both inside and out. This will help balance vata in the body and mind. Also, to combat that restless or scattered feeling, try to keep a regular schedule of eating, sleeping and exercising. More moisture and a regular schedule will help keep you balanced, grounded, and well hydrated, ready for fall!
A couple of events coming up...
