With our up coming Sip & Dip Yin Yoga by the pool event, I thought I'd talk abit about Ayurveda for those who aren't familiar with it.
Although Ayurveda is becoming more and more popular is western holistic medicine, is thought to be over 5000 years old. An Indian natural healing system that consists of a number of disciplines, including aromatherapy, diet, herbal medicine, acupuncture, yoga, massage, meditation and balancing of energies.
Vata is composed of Space and Air, Pitta of Fire and Water, and Kapha of Earth and Water. Vata types are quick thinking, thin, and fast moving, dry, rough, light, cold, subtle, and mobile always on the go, with an energetic and creative mind .

A Pitta type, will have qualities of Fire and Water, such as a fiery personality, oily skin, sharp, hot, light, moving, liquid, and acidic. A Kapha type will typically have a solid bodily frame and calm temperament, reflecting the elements of Earth and Water, moist, cold, heavy, dull, soft, sticky, and static. While one dosha is prominent in most people, a second dosha also has a strong influence.
Tune into our next blog and take a quiz to find out what your Dosha is and start your blissful balance.
