Spring Therapeutic Ayurvedic Yoga Tips
The way you practice yoga has everything to do with it’s therapeutic effect on the mind, body and your overall wellbeing. Yoga means many things to many people, and sometimes, your yoga practice can make your path to healing imbalances or feeling better, more difficult! This time of year, favor a practice that is uplifting, energetic, and slightly vigorous. Depending on your constitution and your imbalances, of course.
Generally speaking, with spring comes the influx of more water and earth into our environments. As Ayurveda teaches us, like increases like, so we want our spring yoga routines to embody the opposite qualities – light, airy and mobile.
- Favor inversions
- Faster paced sun salutations
- Arm balances
- Open heart postures
- Those that take away points of contact between you and the earth.
We want the therapeutic effect to prevent sluggishness, jump start digestive detoxification, stimulate the liver and kidneys, regulate watery emotions, and stoke metabolic fire.
