Yogaveda Wellness Subscriber, Welcome to Yogaveda's Winter Newsletter 2020! As life returns to 'the new normal', we are happy we can now offer you a full range of Yoga Classes and Ayurvedic services to keep you well over winter. Classes are back on in the studio but we continue to offer Online Yoga for selected sessions. We have some winter specials on offer and some new teachers and classes that are now up and running. Read on for some Winter Wellness Tips.

STAYING WELL IN WINTER

As the cold damp of winter (Kapha season) settles upon us, it is important to make lifestyle changes to adapt to our external environment. We may be feeling cold and stiff in our joints, and notice a sluggishness to digestion and elimination. Winter is a time when Kapha tends to accumulate so we may experience excess mucous, weight gain and a feeling of heaviness and lethargy in the body. Vata dosha can also be aggravated with the onset of cold southerly winds we experience in our winter. This can be felt as a deep cold & chill within the body, dry skin, hair and nasal membranes and feeling a bit ungrounded and scattered.
 
The winter season with its tendency towards dull, cloudy grey days can also have an effect on our mind and we can tend towards despondency and lack motivation. This can lead to inertia and a feeling of stagnation. If the energy in the body is not moving freely it can cause blockages in the body's fine channels (srotas) compromising our immunity. This then predisposes us to colds and flus and other ailments. Therefore it is important to keep the body moving, and the energy flowing, with practises like Yoga which can also uplift the mind.
