22. Living in Alignment with Nature's Seasons and Cycles using Ayurveda and Astrology
We can all thrive when our routines match our needs--whether that be our physical, personal needs, or the demands of our life. Many wellness professionals preach a one-size-fits-all approach, but yoga, astrology, and Ayurveda teach us tools to create routines that align with our own type and life demands. Listen to get a crash course on the "types" in Ayurveda, and how to work with the energies that are present for you to create a successful routine that fits YOUR unique needs.
The Sanskrit word for Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) translates to The Science of Light (hence the name of this show!), but Ayurveda, another Vedic science, translates to the Science of Life! On this episode, we dive into a crash course into some of the basics of Ayurveda. This includes an introduction to the elements used by Ayurveda (earth, water, fire, air, ether), the gunas (sattva, rajas, tamas) and finally the doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha). From the elements come the gunas, and from the gunas come the doshas. We discuss how doshas rule individuals' makeups or constitutions (called Prakriti), times of life, times of year (seasons), and even times of day!
Ayurveda and Vedic astrology give us many tools for living in alignment with the natural cycles of Mother Earth and the Cosmos. Additionally, we all have routines whether we consciously choose them or not. By using the ancient sciences of Ayurveda and Jyotish, and applying relevant yoga practices, we can all power up our routines and align with these natural cycles to serve our goals in the best possible way. Listen to find out how!
