Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga, it’s a 5000 year old medical system that originated in India. At the center of Ayurveda is the idea that people and things are made up of elements. For example, people are made up of varying proportions of five elements; air, fire, water, earth, and ether. Although these elements may not have made the list on the big chart in your high school chemistry class, they do serve well as a framework for the understanding of the body within the Ayurvedic system. The idea of elements also extends to the seasons of the year. Take summer for instance, the dominant element is fire.

With that as a starting point, our host Jane Lanza and Carmen Walker explore the essential principles of Ayurveda and how the Ayurvedic diet can be used to maintain a cool, comfortable, and healthy body during the summer months. There are some amazingly simple practices that help you feel good during summer.

If you’re wondering, where’s the yoga in this? Rest assured, Carmen talks about yoga postures that integrate with the Ayurvedic diet and make an effective overall practice to keep you feeling tip top
