Hosted by Emily Bayus, Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor, at The Inner Warrior.
Ayurveda - “The Science of Life” - also commonly referred to as “the sister science of yoga” - is a 5000 year old holistic system of wellness that comes from the philosophical and spiritual traditions of India.
The foundation of Ayurveda is rooted in the understanding that everything in both our external and internal worlds are made up of the five sacred elements; ether, air, fire, water and earth. The elements further condense into what Ayurveda calls the three Doshas; Vata (ether + air), Pitta (fire + water) and Kapha (water + earth). It is the interaction of these three bio-energies that create the functioning of our internal psycho-physiology as well as the movements of our external environment.
Stemming from this elemental and doshic understanding, Ayurveda offers us a comprehensive art of daily living aimed at keeping our unique constitution in harmony with the ever-changing rhythms of Nature - resulting in radiant health!
Some of the most powerful practices from this timeless wisdom are that of daily routine and seasonal routine, which Ayurveda respectively calls Dinacharya and Ritucharya.
Summer is the season of Pitta Dosha; a time to keep our bodies cool, our minds calm, and to maintain a steady and sustainable pace of energy to fully enjoy this energetic time of year.
