Stay balanced this Autumn!
As the cool winds whip away the summer heat they also threaten to close us down and dry us up! Now is the best time to take care of yourself with a Vata balancing yoga practice. This includes Vata pacifying foods such as warming soups and root vegetables, adding ghee to turmeric or ginger tea and using black seasame oil to nourish your skin and draw toxins out. Consistent moderate exercise keeps the immune system strong.
