In Ayurveda, each season is intricately connected with a specific dosha. Doshas serve as a means to characterize the qualities of the physical and natural body or cycles. To maintain robust health, it is essential to keep the doshas in harmony, requiring adaptation to the changing seasons.

Ayurveda categorizes the year into seasons corresponding to the three primary doshas: Pitta, Kapha, and Vata. Each dosha, or the substances believed to exist within an individual’s body, possesses distinctive characteristics. Tailoring your daily routines and yoga practices to align with the prevailing season and associated energies can significantly contribute to overall well-being and a serene mind.

Instead of traditional divisions like winter, spring, summer, and fall, Ayurveda segments the year into three distinct seasons: Kapha season, Pitta season, and Vata season.

Winter invites us to find comfort and solace within, yet the holiday season may tempt us into overindulgence. Consumption of hearty foods, coupled with a lack of physical activity, stagnant energy, and a preference for staying indoors, can result in lethargy, mental haziness, and a weighty demeanor. It’s essential to opt for nourishing foods, embrace the outdoors, engage in ample pranayama, and revitalize a stagnant Kapha disposition through an expansive asana practice infused with movement, flow, and deep, invigorating breaths. This workshop will expand on how to support your health, stay warm, strong and energised this Winter.
