a series of yoga classes to honor the dosas

Earth + Water.

The qualities of Heavy, Dense, Soft, Stable are grounded Kapha. Babies look like Kapha:  Smooth, rubbery, sweet, tied to the Earth.

To pacify too much Kapha we practise poses that are energizing, uplifting, active, steady and light.   Kapha will enjoy the repetition of the Moon Salutation practised in a warm space. But keep it going. Do not allow it to bog down for Kapha prefers to stay home on the couch. Be sprighty, light, energetic.

Kapha is pacified by foods that are well-spiced and easy to digest.

            To decrease Kapha: turmeric, legumes, cranberries, strong black tea.

            To increase Kapha (when you drift into the Don’t-Wannas:   sweet fruits, grains, root vegetables such as potatoes and beets, dates, nuts, meats.
