I'm a visual sorta girl and I love lists. While looking for something to post in the kitchen to help me and my students with my foods to eat and to avoid (doshically speaking) I came across these online so I decided to share. I find eating a really perfect "ayurveda diet" pretty difficult, TBH. I try everyday and I do know that all the little changes I've made are actually big steps toward a healthy gut.
Heathly gut= Healthy life.
Now to deal with the mind and all the stresses of life. ugh.... As that's a large part of health too. Things I've found that help with stress:
GRATITUDE. Just be thankful you've found a plan that can lead to health and don't stress about being perfect with it all.
MEDITATION. Sit, breath, and relax. Focus ont eh breath. The inhales and the exhales. Slow and deep. Even. Do this for a few minutes. If this is hard. Count with the inhales and exhales. eg. Inhale 1, exhale 2...
YOGA. Just do it. It doesn't have to be sweaty and you don't need any fancy clothes.
This sequence is known as the dancing warrior.
Of course you can modify it any which way you like. Sometimes I add the "bend twist and open" from the 3 legged down dog for more hip opening. It is a nice hip opener, strength builder (especially in the legs), lateral stretch, and an all around easy flow to follow and build upon.
I'll be posting another sequence soon that I've created to follow this, with a peak pose of bound revolved side angle. Any guesses as to what will be in the next posting about the sequence?
There's still time to register for the ytt-200 in August. Only two weeks and it WILL change your life!
