Ayurvedic Resources for Autumn...
Fall is my favorite season. In fact, I sometimes wish it would last all year long (and not just for the pumpkin spiced lattes). To me it’s the perfect combination of hot (pitta) and cold (vata), my two dominant energies. And of course it makes sense that it’s governed by vata, since it’s very much a transitional season. It’s a time when the energy of movement and change swirls through the air like the cool wind, drying, distracting, stimulating, and exhausting every part of you.
