- Did you know that you primarily breathe through only one nostril at a time? It switches around every 90 minutes, and that junction in between—when the breath flows evenly through both—brings a state of peace and calm. Yoga teaches us how to induce this feeling through the practice of anuloma viloma. By alternating the breath between the right and left nostrils, we balance the ida and pingala nadis and the left and right brains. The result is a state of deep relaxation. I do this practice every morning before meditation and the monkey mind thoughts (mostly) float away. Anuloma viloma is so great if you're dealing with anxiety, stress, insomnia, or agitation. Ask your yoga teacher to teach you this practice, or join me on Saturday July 1 at the Native Hotel in Malibu from 7-8am for an all-levels yoga class and I'll teach you myself. ☺️ thank you @wmn_space for the photo 🙏🏽 .#anulomaviloma #ayurveda #pranayama #nativehotel #stressrelief #wmnspace #nourishyourbody #medicinewoman #insomia #malibu

- My living room-turned-yoga-studio! This will now be a regular thing, but at the beautiful little Native Hotel near Point Dume in Malibu starting Saturday July 1st from 7am-8am in their new wellness center. Space is limited to 10 students. I teach an all-levels hatha class that's spiritually oriented to rise and shine with the sun! Put your mind in a positive state for an uplifting weekend, grab a coffee or tea afterward at their weekend coffee truck, and then hit Point Dume beach for a perfect Saturday :) . .#ayurveda #nativehotel #malibu #pointdume #laworkshops #layoga #ayurvedicyoga #riseandshine

- Join me in my kitchen one week from today (Sat. June 24) to learn how to cook the ayurveda way! If you came to the last cooking workshop, this one will be quite different—we'll learn more about kitchen rituals, stocking an ayurvedic pantry, making cooking a meditation, and some new recipes! . You've probably heard that Hippocrates quote: "Let food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food". Ayurveda is the science that explains, more in depth than any other science or diet or system of holistic medicine, how to cook food so that it's harmonious with the body. It's not just about packing in vitamins and superfoods...if you're body can't digest them, they're of no use! Herein lies the wisdom of ayurvedic cooking. . Hope you can join me Saturday and start bringing this wisdom into your own kitchen! Link in profile.

- Lunch! I made this kitcharee with brown rice and beluga lentils. Served up with some bitter chard, sour lemon pickle, pungent pepper, and salty seaweed, the naturally sweet rice and astringent beans hit all 6 tastes. This is the formula for a truly satiating meal. But it doesn't have to be complicated. Get to know all the different tastes intimately and you can sense when you're overdoing one and underdoing another. It is an act of creating balance, as are all things ayurveda. . #ayurveda #ayurvediccooking #ayurvedafood #kitchari #plantbased #plantmedicine #medicinewoman #foodismedicine #rasa

- I have so been enjoying the book Ayurveda: Lifestyle Wisdom by Acharya Shunya. She shares ayurveda's philosophy of health so beautifully: "We inhabit only one body in each lifetime and...we must use this body not only to fulfill our desires but also to serve others. This God-given body is a divine instrument for each soul's worldly and spiritual aspirations. For this reason, it is important for us to take care of the physical body with mindfulness and regard for natural laws." . #ayurveda #lifestylewisdom #ayurvedicselfcare #medicinewoman #ancientwisdom #malibu #layogis #selflove #selfcarematters #mindfulness

- Yesterday's India market bounty included these fragrant curry leaves. They add so much depth to kitcharee, rice and dahls. Plus, they prevent parasites! I add them right after sauteeing spices in ghee and just before adding rice or lentils to be cooked. . Curry leaves are hard to find, but thankfully they last for ages. Just wash them, wrap them in towels to dry completely, and then store them in a big closed mason jar in the fridge. They keep for 6 weeks! . #ayurveda #ayurvediccooking #foodismedicine #plantbased #curryleaves #cooking101 #malibu #artesia #ancientwisdom #medicinewoman

- I just can't enough. No matter how much kitcharee I eat, I just never get sick of it. The classic way of cooking kitcharee is with white basmati and hulled, split mung beans. You feel full after a nice steamy bowl but because it's so easy to digest, you feel light again not so long after. And it's so tasty. If you make it right, that is :) .

- I believe that our eyes are the first part of our digestive system. I try to incorporate lots of color into meals, even if it's a simple handful of bright green cilantro thrown on top a drab bowl of kitcharee. This is last nights ayurvedic dinner: mujdarra, or middle eastern kitcharee, beet raita with sheeps yogurt and fresh herbs from @theangelinyourkitchen garden, sautéed farmers market beet greens and kale with ginger and cumin, and pickled lemon chutney. .

- *Musings on ayurveda* I don’t feel that the description of ayurveda as “the science of life” or “knowledge of life” does it justice. Yes, ayurveda is these things. But to deduce it to a four word explanation is all too terse. I dig and dig and dig, trying to articulate what ayurveda really is. It's one thing to experience it, but another to put it into words. . The longer and more deeply I live ayurveda, and teach it, and study it, and share it, the more it reveals itself. It’s depth is unending. I am understanding these days that ayurveda is a compass. It is a complete guide to health (health of the human form, of the mind and its thoughts, and of the spirit). The wisdom of ayurveda is not a bunch of rules - what to eat, when to sleep, how to massage yourself with oil, etc. It is an offering. It will take us exactly where we need to go. It is the direction that those of us who want to experience health are looking for. . It’s our free will to choose whether to follow this compass or not. But it is there, and it will always be there, and it will forever be relevant because it’s based on nature’s laws. All the answers to a healthy, happy life are there. This compass is ready for us to pick it up and use now and for the rest of our life, should we choose. . . . . . #ayurveda #ancientwisdom #yogalifestyle #lifestylewisdom #malibu #la #holistichealth #healthyself
