Sister Science Lesson 6 :: Exploring the Ayurvedic Effects of Asana

      Course Objectives

When determining the kind of yoga practice that is right for you, the most important factor is your vikruti, or imbalance. Your vikruti is, in fact, the single most important determinant of your entire regime. Once you have corrected your imbalance, you can stay in good health by choosing a yoga practice that balances your constitution, or prakruti.

Today – you will learn to create a perfect for you asana practice that will take your current state into account to bring about balance, peace and well-being.

Short Essay :: Think back to a time when your yoga asana practice may have been aggravating your imbalances rather than balancing your dosha?  What did that feel like for you at that time?  Perhaps you felt that you were doing something wrong, that it “just wasn’t working” the way it was for others.  Share your story.  Share your insights, questions and comments inside the Sister Science Facebook Community.

“Possessing strength and stillness is a sign of balance: power and serenity combined in one moment. It’s challenging enough to hold either one, let alone both, in perfect equipoise, but that is the goal if we want to be balanced.”
