Come along and learn how to balance your Kapha Dosha

Thursday 24th March – 10am to 5pm
(overnight option is also available)

Overview

This time of year is the time that issues with the kapha dosha are starting to show.  Weight-gain will be one obvious sign and a feeling of lacking discipline to get out and do things.  Lets face it, the energy of the world has not been too positive so kapha may be affected by this.  Vata will be feeling more anxious and fearful and Pitta will be setting goals and activities to start on (if they have not started already).

 

For some of you with an element of Kapha, you may be feeling more symptoms of:

  • Heaviness
  • Lethargy
  • Brain-Fog
  • Lacking Structure
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Mucous
  • Runny Nose
  • Sticky Eyes
  • Allergies
  • Weight-gain (as mentioned)

Aim for the Day

We will be doing an overview of the Kapha Dosha and the pathologies associated with kapha.  We will also look at the fabulous traits and strength that Kapha has to give to the world.

The outcome of the day will be to give you realistic tips and techniques to balance Kapha for March, April and May, as we move into the summer season.

 

I will be teaching you about the best stimulating and cleansing foods and spices to incorporate PLUS we look at how you can do this in the slow and steady pace that Kapha likes.  The teachings will cover topics on:

 

  • sleeping and bedtimes
  • meals and emotional eating
  • self-care routines
  • daily habits to help keep kapha balanced
  • exercise types and what to do best for Kapha
  • looking after your lymphatic system
  • looking at and improving your digestive health (the gateway to disease)
  • stimulating the kapha fire in the belly and mind
