Can you believe what we have endured over the last 20+ months?! What a stirring of the pot and upheaval on a major scale. Many of us are feeling shifts within our consciousness and within our bodies as well as in the world around us. How you perceive experiences and situations will determine the level of trauma or liberation you feel. No one is exempt from cleansing, purifying, and releasing in a time like this. PTSD, anxiety, depression, divorce, relocating and other challenges are felt by all, one way or another, but in a different way. 

Yoga invites us to go inside of your heart and mind to rewire the unproductive ways of seeing the world. Spring is an excellent time to clear out the resurfaced toxins and debris of mind and body. Spring is Kapha season and a time for letting go and rebuilding with nurturing activities, whole food, pure water and air, movement and attitudes. 

Ayurveda is the complementary science to yoga that looks deeper into what hinders your practice, motivation, happiness and even success in life. It looks at your whole being from a compassionate viewpoint of what would most bring you into balance and bliss.

Here a few hacks to apply now with immediate results. 

  • Begin every morning with at least 5 minutes of silence in a seated position. Just focus on your breath.
  • Remove the prior days toxins with a copper tongue scraper. 3 strokes will do. 
  • Rinse your nasal passages with a neti pot. Warm distilled water with the appropriate salt solution.
  • Drink hot water with a squirt of fresh lemon juice before you eat breakfast.
  • Consume plenty of warm cooked whole foods to counter the remaining chill in the environment of spring. 
  • Move through a few yoga postures like Surya Namaskar (sun salutes) or a brisk walk. 
  • Eat you last meal between 5-7pm, no later. 
  • Express gratitude for every moment, food, person, state of mind, or experience. 

These easy steps can be added slowly into your routine with remarkable results, when done consistently. Every spring and fall is also a great time to rest the digestion by a juice or water fast, or a Kitcheri only diet for a few days.
