Ayurveda is a holistic health system from India, and the sister science to Yoga.

Ayurveda sees fall and early winter as a time of Vata* when we must take special care to ground, soothe and nourish. In addition to changes in weather and light, fall can also feel overwhelming as many of us return to the structure of regular work and school hours. Top that with a return to face-to-face interactions after more than a year of masks and lockdowns, and your nervous system may need some intense nurturing!
