Today marks the beginning of a new season. As we are all beginning to wind down from the active, yang, energy of summer let’s take a pause to reflect, gather & renew. The yang energy of summer is ruled by the pitta dosha in Ayurveda. We are now entering into the vata dosha’s reign before settling into the dark & heavy pull of kapha winter.
Fall is the season of thanks & gratitude, harvest & reflection. This is the perfect time to begin a more reflective yoga practice & stay grounded with stews, warm teas & friends. Look for yin, restorative or meditation classes in your area. Start a gratitude journal & savor each bit of daylight we have as the days begin to grow darker & daylight shorter.
