Please take a few minutes to read my note below and watch the video, a clip of one of Dr Donn Brennan’s lectures, it will give you an insight to his talk on our special Yoga Retreat which takes place on 20th-22nd April.
Most of you have heard of Ayurveda and know that yoga and ayurveda go hand in hand. We are aware of the benefits of yoga on our body and mind but Ayurveda is fundamental to keeping yourself in balance, through simple lifestyle recommendations and dietary recommendations according to your type vata, pitta, kapha.
Ayurveda is simple, it breaks us down into 3 body types and characteristics, Vata, Pitta and Kapha and gives recommendations for our diet and lifestyle.
We all have these 3 characteristics but we generally are more dominant in one. I am predominantly Vata for example, so I need to concentrate on what is good for a vata type, i.e eat the main meal at lunch time and not in the evening, stay warm, involve myself in relaxing activities, good organisation and structure in my day, to be in bed by 10:30, to establish a relaxation routine such as yoga a 5 minute yoga practice before going to bed, to eat less of certain foods, certain foods and eat more of others.
Just a few simple adjustments to your daily routine can improve your quality of life dramatically.
