FINDING MYSELF

What's my "dosha" and how to optimize it​​
Why am I an introvert? Why does this particular colleague get on my nerves?  Why do I dislike some foods? What is "dosha?"

"Dosha" seems to be the word of the year - with many natural websites mentioning it over and again.
Gaining popularity in the Yoga community, "dosha" literally means "fault" in Sanskrit.
But in Ayurveda, the definition broadens to mean "humor," or even "constitution."


"Finding Myself"  - is an introduction to Ayurveda

In this intro course, we will learn the concepts of Dosha - which is the basic tenet of Ayurveda.
Doshas are a particular combination of the five basic elements that this entire universe is made of: Ether, Air, Fire, Water, Earth.
Vata Dosha is a combination of Ether and Air
Pitta Dosha is a combination of Fire and Water
Kapha Dosha is a combination of Earth and Water

 A simple questionnaire will help us identify the dosha combination that is prevalent in our body. And this will further help us understand why we behave in certain ways, our food cravings, mood swings, energy levels, career goals, and passions.


Balancing and Optimizing my dosha
Once we identify our doshas, a lot of puzzling situations will fall into place - we will gain a new perspective, wisdom, and compassion


“Finding Myself” is exciting, revealing and transforming

For men and women, young and mature, in all colors and phases of life – it’s time to find ourselves!
 

"Finding Myself" classes are available through the year.

Lady L : Case Study


In her mid-forties, a well respected, senior manager at work, Lady L had a problem at every team meeting held Monday Mornings at 10 am
Somehow, she invariably had a sparring match with another senior team member, who she found unreasonably irritating at these meetings.  She used harsh, cutting words, snapped at the other members and came out of the meetings feeling like a worm, instead of feeling victorious  
"Why did I do that?", - being an ardent yoga student, she would meditate on her behaviour, but couldn't seem to resolve it, blaming it on her hormones and oncoming menopause.

After attending the "Finding Myself" class, we helped her identify her dosha, which was strongly Pitta.  The timing of the meeting was 10 am, which is the onset of Pitta hours, and she always carried a huge mug of green tea with ginger to these meetings.  The caffeine in green tea plus the heat produced by ginger aggravated pitta.

Putting all the pieces together, she discovered for herself what a lethal combination she was carrying into the 10 am meeting room.
She could not change her pitta constitution, nor could she change the pitta meeting time of 10 am, BUT - she could balance and optimize her pitta dosha.

So instead of carrying a huge mug of green tea with ginger, she carried a huge mug of CCF (Cumin Coriander Fennel) tea.
She went ten minutes earlier to the meeting room, found a quieter chair, slipped off her shoes, closed her eyes and did three minutes of deep breathing and cooling breath.

And then she was ready!
Now instead of coming out feeling like a worm, she carries a dignified silence and assurance of knowledge.
