Ayurveda’s Cyclical Wisdom with Maya Tiwari

Today I have the pleasure of speaking with spiritual guru and Founder of the Wise Earth School of Ayurveda, Maya Tiwari.

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. It’s a triple whammy. When Vata is aggravated, symptoms may appear such as cracked or chapped skin, eczema, constipation, cold hands and feet, anxiety and interrupted sleep-NOT...

Within the larger picture of the subtle anatomy lies an endless realm to explore. That is when...

Trust Your Instincts to Find Ease and Efficiency

When you find yourself working in a situation that isn’t actually working, what do you do?I recently found myself sitting in a very full University classroom.  Throughout the class I was constantly tuning out and struggling to tune back in- and most of the class was following suit.  The comments of my classmates affirmed the experience I was having – “I know the concept that the professor is speaking to but the way he’s translating it makes no sense” or “this is bullshit.” Some of the students simply left the...
