Editor's Note from Julie Cerrato: Trouble falling or staying asleep? Ayurveda can help! Dr. John Douillard speaks with Waylon about Vata & Pitta disturbances that prevent individuals from a good night's rest. Ayurveda points to a Vata imbalance if there is difficulty falling asleep due to restless monkey mind, overexcitment or exhaustion. Individuals who wake up throughout the night are more prone to a Pitta imbalance and may experience emotional or hormonal upset or excess heat due to metablolic disturbances. Ayurveda offers several suggestions for balancing Vata and Pitta including lifestyle and nutrition modifications. Dr. Douillard discusses some of these suggestions to provide individuals with adequate energy to properly prepare the body and mind for bed. Sweet Dreams ;) Namaste

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: This is an interesting article shared with us by Dr Ram Mani Bhandari, where the author tells us how Ayurveda wisdom of Dosha philosophy helps to make us aware about whether our dosha imbalance relates to the time of day. For example if you find it difficult to say awake in the morning without cups of coffee, it could be because you have been rising late-during the lethargic kapha time.

One of the most challenging yoga transitions is swinging one leg up to lunge from down dog. It requires open hips, but also a steady eye that looks a few inches ahead of where the foot needs to land.
