To my dear friends on the path,
I love Autumn. The leaves changing colour, the waves getting bigger, winds stronger, it truly is the season of transformation. As wonderful as this is, this time of year can bring with it the feeling of restlessness and indecisiveness.
According to Ayurveda (sister of yoga), the Vata dosha is most prevailing in autumn. Vata qualities are dynamic, dry, cold, light, irregular and changing, which can bring with it instability and the feeling as though you are walking on egg shells.
To counterbalance the dominating Vata energy in nature we can use yoga, routines and nutritional choices to regain our inner harmony. Check out my latest newsletter for some of my suggestions for this season.
