Ayurveda (“the science of life”) categorizes human beings into three basic different Dosha constitutions, or biological humors. These are Vata (air/ether element), Pitta (fire element), and Kapha (water/earth element). For each Dosha, there are specific recommendations for posture, breath, and the way in which one goes about their own personal Yoga practice, and lifestyle. These recommendations fundamentally have to do with either heating the body up, or cooling the body down. In this workshop, we will investigate these three biological humors, and do a preliminary diagnosis to determine which Dosha you tend most towards. After determining this, we will investigate the kinds of practice that are suitable for each, and explore ways of working that will bring greater balance and harmony both within your practice, and within your life.
