Melina welcomes us to the 5-Day Fall Ayurveda Yoga Challenge. With the turning of autumn, the Ayurvedic wisdom encourages us to align with the seasons to experience radiant health, balance, and harmony. Together we move through 5 1-hour practices weaving together asana, pranayama, meditation, and Ayurvedic rituals and routines. These practices are designed to nourish your whole being and create a sense of calm and stability. Thanks for being here, let’s begin.
Five star rating! When I started meditating seven years ago, I was first drawn to hypnosis because of its ability to slow down my mind. Once I discovered yoga, hypnosis and popular mindfulness became as interesting as fast-food.
With Melina's guidance I am able to slow-down my body and mind, enter into deep and mindful meditative states, and carry lessons off the mat. I am also more flexible and stronger too! The Savasanas, gratitude meditations, and self-care talks are intelligent, heart-felt and fun.
As a cyclist, I train with periodization. The intensity of that training makes it difficult to restrict calorie intake (especially carbohydrates); however, during rest hours, days, weeks and seasons (Autumn is traditionally a season of repair for NJ cyclists/racers), I now have more tools for active-recovery, and also more disciplined ways to approach the way I eat, drink and breathe. Namaste!
