Navigating Seasonal Transition with Ayurveda

Mar 02, 2023

Episode 277

Ayurveda teaches us that we are a part of nature and not separate from it. We are made up of the same 5 elements as nature or the panchamahabhoutas as they’re called in Sanskrit; space, air, fire, water and earth. Our unique dosha ratio of Vata, Pitta and Kapha in our individual constitution determines the energies and qualities in our body.

Each season will result in a shift in the 5 panchmahabhoutas depending on the climate and this shift in the elements and qualities of our environment will effect the qualities of Vata, Pitta and Kapha in our body.

In this episode Colette discusses the following:

  • How seasonal shifts effect the qualities of the doshas.
  • Implementing the Ayurvedic principle of "like increases like and opposites pacify to help navigate the shift in seasons."
  • What are the Ritucharya or seasonal guidelines.
  • Each doshas qualities, signs of imbalance and tips to pacify.
  • The importance of cleansing during seasonal transition.
