We each have our own, unique ayurvedic* constitution, yet in the summertime we collectively experience an increase in the pitta dosha. Pitta is fire and water; energized and fluid, adventurous and mobile, ambitious and focused. When pitta is out of balance we can become angry and impatient, reckless and judgmental, competitive and critical, or just plain overheated. This pitta balancing yoga workshop will give us tools to stay cool and collected, gentle with ourselves and others as we have fun in the sun and get just the right amount of work done this summer. Join Sonya for a discussion on maintaining ayurvedic balance and a sequence of cleansing twists, playful arm balances, calming forward bends and cooling breath work.
