    Ayurvedic Fitness

    For years the experts have encouraged us to exercise because of its pronounced health benefits. But how much exercise is too much or not enough, and how do we know? There can be no standard answer to this question. Understanding your Ayurvedic body type can help you determine how much exercise you need as well as the type of activity that would be best suited for you. Furthermore, exercise can either incur stress or alleviate it depending on the quality of the breath. Learning how to breathe while exercising will create a natural calming influence that stays with you all day.

    Beyond Asana: Supporting Ayurveda with the Subtle Practices of Yoga

    A woman who recently attended my Ayurvedic chef training on Kaua’i reminded me once again of the power of yoga and Ayurveda as combined treatment techniques. Over the past three years, this woman had been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, which set in after the birth of her second child. She had typical symptoms of joint pain, extreme morning stiffness, fatigue, a foggy mind and a feeling of overwhelm. She had removed most of the junk food from her diet and saw some improvement, but sought out an Ayurvedic consultation during her time at the training to find her next steps toward healing.
