On today’s podcast I promote a woman from inside our Yogahealer community.
Mary Sullivan, who has walked the self healing path in full with Yogahealer and is an amazing mentor in my Living Ayurveda course, joins me to discuss Vata and Vata imbalances. Learn what it means to have Vata imbalances and how to deal with them by coming into deeper integration in your pranic, physical, mental, emotional, and intuitive bodies.
Mary and I rap about Vata, the force of movement and rhythm in our lives. There is an excitement, a spontaneity and a limitlessness to this Vata force, but when it is out of balance, it can take up too much space and block our productivity. An out-of-whack vata dosha can show up in the form of insomnia, gas, sciatica, or a scattered mind, to name a few. When we have these issues, we are losing so much energy and are so distracted that we cannot be productive. Our natural rhythm is creativity and productivity, not pain and disease. We are here to grow and thrive; this is the nature of our being.
Tune in to this episode to learn how to listen to your body, align your vata dosha, relax, receive, and thrive.
