AYURVEDA SUMMER TIPS

According to Ayurveda, aligning our lifestyle with the rhythms of nature is essential for maintaining optimal health and well-being. Let’s explore some Ayurvedic tips to nourish and balance your mind, body, and spirit this summer:


𖤓 Opt for Pitta-pacifying diet: In Ayurveda, summer is associated with the Pitta dosha, which is characterised by heat. Focus on Pitta-pacifying foods like sweet, bitter and astringent tastes. Include cooling spices like fennel, coriander and cardamom in your meals.

𖤓 Time your meals: Have your main meal at lunchtime when the digestive fire is strongest. Avoid heavy, greasy, and fried foods, as they can burden the digestive system. Opt for lighter, easily digestible meals with plenty of fresh vegetables and whole grains.

𖤓 Practice Abhyanga (self-massage): Massage your body with cooling oils like coconut or sunflower oil before showering. This practice helps to cool down the body, nourish the skin, and promote relaxation.

𖤓 Engage in gentle exercise: Engage in moderate exercise during the cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or evening. Practise yoga, walking, or swimming to keep your body active without overheating.

𖤓 Follow a regular routine: Stick to a consistent daily routine to support your body’s natural rhythms. Wake up and go to bed at regular times, eat meals at the same time each day, and create a balanced routine that includes self-care practices like meditation and relaxation.


Ayurveda recognises that each individual is unique, so it’s important to consider your own body type and specific needs.

JULY WORKSHOPS

The ancient text books have called Sirsasana the king of all asanas.

In this 2hr workshop we will journey through different aspects of this pose from biomechanics and technical parts of body alignment to prep, different variations and modifications. We will break down how to enter, hold and modify this balance.

This is a perfect workshop if you are new to practising headstands, but also if you need that little bit of extra help to find more comfort in this pose or want to explore some fun variations and progressions.
