Back to School with Ayurveda
Fall is a time of year when things are changing. For those who have a love of learning, this is a time when the door is wide open for growth and expansion. The seasons are also changing, everything in nature is drying out, and if we don’t take care of ourselves physically, we can leave ourselves vulnerable to lots of minor ailments.
Our five senses inform of us the changes, while our mind opens to accelerated growth this time of year. Vata season ushers in the change. It’s expansive energy invites us to expand, to learn, to grow, to go beyond where we’ve been. Listen in to attune.
