Enhancing Seasonal Cleansing with Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy: Simple Ways to Employ Timeless Practices
*Note: This is a talk not an asana class

- How can the integration of Ayurveda and Yoga enhance the power of the Ayurvedic seasonal cleansing process?
“It is important to note that the status of health and etiopathogenesis of disease depends upon status of Agni.” [Cha.Sa. Chikitsa Sthana 15/4]
In mid-August we are on the precipice of the Autumnal cleansing season. The dry air of Autumn has a way of exacerbating the excess heat we built up over the summer. Cells start to hold onto pollution and toxic substances when they lose their juju, their juice. Dehydrated cells cannot do their jobs well. The Ayurvedic cleanse at this seasonal juncture is an age-old process of rehydration and oleation of the vital organs and internal tissues that are dried out from summer heat, stress and all the results of accumulated Vata and Pitta dosha. The Autumnal equinox cleanse is about resetting our detoxification pathways and digestive system naturally and gradually through addressing Agni and Prana. How can we use the integration of Ayurveda and Yoga to enhance this process?
I have found through years of clinical practice that integrating Ayurveda and Yoga into the Ayurvedic Panchakarma process makes it exponentially more effective. This class gives an overview of simple ways to employ these timeless practices.
In my opinion, the key to Ayurvedic medicine is in the words of the most revered teacher, Acharya Charaka: “Agñiveśa listen, physicians are of two kinds – the superior who promotes Prana and thus destroys diseases (roga) and the inferior, who pursues roga (disease) and thus destroys Prāņa” – from Ca Su 29. In the end, we are students of Prana and Agni, and the goal is to learn how to best enliven them through the time-tested knowledge of the Vedas.
Join us on August 15th at 6:00 p.m. PST for this CAAM presentation.
