Last week we began a 3-part series exploring how to use Ayurveda in your yoga practice to balance your body with the climate around you.
Ayurveda, the preventative lifestyle that balances the body with your environment is a beautiful tool to use during the summer months. According to Ayurveda, summer is associated with Pitta, the fire element. Pitta is known for its sharp, hot qualities. When in balance the qualities of Pitta are intellectual, focused and energetic. When out of balance Pitta can produce anger, poor digestion and irritability.
