The shift toward the cooler weather and shorter days of autumn requires adjustments to both your yoga practice and your yoga wardrobe.

Understanding the 3 Gunas | Yoga Philosophy

sourced from: https://www.yogateachertrainingyogacara.com/understanding-the-3-gunas-yoga-philosophy/

Recently, I’ve been working on reading Richard Freeman’s beautiful book, The Mirror of Yoga. I say working on, because it’s the kind of book that reads effortlessly (he is a very poetic writer) and tricks me into thinking, “aha, I get what you are saying”. But in truth, the philosophical concepts Freeman is describing are venerable and steeped in layers of meaning, and I would be fooling myself if I said I “understand” Yoga philosophy. My understanding is closer to shadowy glimmers of perception that ebb and flow in my cognitive mind.

To be fair to my contemporary brain, relating to yoga ph… Read More

The Poses You Hate the Most, You Need the Most

sourced from: http://www.yogabasics.com/connect/yoga-blog/how-to-work-through-difficult-yoga-poses/

“If we do chair pose one more time I’m going to scream!” Have you ever had thoughts like these during your yoga practice? If so, you’re not alone. I have too, and so has every teacher I know and every student I’ve taught. It seems we all have at least one yoga pose we simply can’t stand. But in my experience, it’s how we deal with those difficult yoga poses …

5 Tips For Grounding Your Body & Mind In Autumn

sourced from: https://www.yogateachertrainingyogacara.com/5-tips-for-grounding-your-body-mind-in-autumn/

As I sit to write this, the rain is pouring outside, I have thick socks on, warm tea and all of a sudden it feels like we are on the cusp of change. We are on the move towards the beautiful season of Autumn and with it comes the need for personal change to maintain internal balance.

Vata dosha is dominant as we move through Autumn. Made up of the elements Air and Ether and responsible for all movement in the body. The characteristics of Vata dosha are dry, light, rough, cold, brittle, mobile and spacey. Therefore, it is integral that we keep ourselves warm, lubricated and grounded to remain balanced during this time.

Below are 5 tips to integrate into your everyday routine this Autumn:

1. Prepare a cinnamon and ginger water for the week in preparation for the cooler temperatures and to keep your agni (digestive fire) stoked. I like to fill a to-go cup with half of the prepared mixture and half with warm water, sometimes with a teaspoon of honey. I drink this dur… Read More
