It’s been a moment since my last post and I’m not even sure where the time went. When I last shared, I was busy with personal running goals, teaching, and trying to suck up every ounce of outdoor time while the weather was still nice. I went through a few weeks of burn out where my creative juices had just ran dry and I wanted to honor the process that this happens from time to time. My body, mind, and soul was simply craving other hobbies to fill it up.
My schedule is still jammed back but I’ve missed my outlet here the last couple weeks. The spark came back with a recent decision I’ve made to sign up for my 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training! I’m very excited for this next step on my yoga journey and I’ll be sharing in a separate post about which program I’ve decided to go with. For today, I wanted to share a recent topic we are learning, The Tridoshic System.
The Tridoshic System is made up of the three different doshas; Vata, Pitta, & Kapha. These doshas are made up of a combination of the five elements; air, water, ether, fire, & earth.
Vata is made up of ether and air and has the characteristics of light, airy, cool, and lean. This dosha is associated with the seasons of fall and early winter. Pitta is made up of fire and water and has the characteristics of hot, warm, diligent, and tone. This dosha is associated with the seasons of late spring and early summer. Kapha is made up of water and earth and has the characteristics of slow, grounded, balanced, and receptive to sensation. This dosha is associated with the seasons of late winter and early summer.
I’ve wrote about the Doshas in the past and share a quiz you can take to see which one you’re personality aligns with. As I dive more into the information on the Tridosha System, I’m looking forward to food pairing to correlate with the dosha of the season and sharing with you!
