Ayurveda & Vinyasa

Ayurveda or “The Science of Life” originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda identifies 3 basic energies or Doshas within us-Vata, Pitta and Kapha. It’s the Doshas we look to bring into balance to maximize “health” on all levels. With the transition to spring we are emphasizing Vinyasa or movement through the poses (asanas) with the breath. Spring is a season of revitalization and overcoming sluggishness (a Kapha quality when out of balance). It’s with that in mind, we invite you to “Get Up & Flow” into the Season!

What’s Your Dosha?

We’ve set up space just outside Studio 1 with information on each of the Doshas – Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The three doshas are in each of us with the proportion with which they appear – typically one or sometimes two, being dominant – making us uniquely who we are. Understanding our dosha(s) and the diet, actions and other lifestyle choices that help to bring them into balance can be extremely beneficial for health, well being and quality of our life. Feel free to make observations from the information we’ve posted, or it’s easy enough to find a “dosha quiz” or an Ayurvedic health practitioner through an online search.
