Winter Seasonal Vinyasa
The winter season in Ayurveda is associated with the dosha – uneven energy pattern – called Kapha, which is composed of the elements Earth and Water and which promotes stability in our body and mind. In order to prevent the typical Kapha imbalance during December through February, such as weight gain or depression, the main intention behind this winter seasonal vinyasa practice is to help raise your core temperature and metabolism and increase circulation with dynamic, invigorating, rhythmic, sequences. This practice with Melina Meza includes sun salutation variations, back bends to open the front of your spine, forward bends to stimulate the backside of your torso, and inversions to promote blood circulation to the brain.
