Yoga at Ladaka

Fall/Winter is the Vata season in Ayurveda ~ clear skies, wind and crisp, cold temperatures. Our minds and bodies accumulate these cold, dry, mobile Vata qualities and we may feel energized and clear-minded. However, the cold, dry airiness can become excessive, throwing our systems out of balance leading to fatigue, anxiety, dryness, digestive issues and other Vata symptoms or disease. To stay naturally balanced and healthy during Vata season eat warm, moist, grounding foods with heating, sweet spices like cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg; take in good oils and ghee; move slowly and do gentle, grounding, restorative yoga; get massages and do warm oil self-massage. Make sure you stay warm and get plenty of rest and deep, restorative sleep. For further understanding and assistance in balancing concerns of Vata season call Marti Jeffs, Ayurvedic Health Practitioner.
