I hate to admit it, but I’ve only recently gotten a handle on metabolizing cellulite. And if you haven’t yet experienced this, let me tell you — it’s pure joy to metabolize your own cellulite. I had excessive meda dhatu — fat tissue (see Dr. Lad’s table below). We’ve all had that experience in life where too much = poor quality. Now, it’s not like I carried much extra weight or had handfuls of cellulite. But, between...

The fields around my house are bursting with flowering thistle, I’m going to...

Common Set-backs in Learning Ayurveda Before we dive into the Essential Lessons from Ayurveda, let’s look at what I’ve learned along the way. I was taught Ayurveda at the California College of Ayurveda. I worked in the herb room and the pancha karma clinic. I lived with my teachers. Studied at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco – their 2 year teacher training program. I was a work study, and learned closely from the school...

My...

If Vata needed an ideal hangout, my small town in Idaho would certainly be a contender. Kapha’s retain their lovely skin on the cold, diamond, Idaho slopes. Pitta’s run around in shorts and long sleeve shirts when shoveling the driveway. Vata’s tend to remain windswept, cold and dry. I have Vata in my constitution and I am in the Vata stage of life.
