1
00:00:02,149 –> 00:00:05,700
are you Veda refers to an extensive base

2
00:00:05,700 –> 00:00:08,069
of knowledge which represents India’s

3
00:00:08,069 –> 00:00:11,190
traditional holistic medicine it’s

4
00:00:11,190 –> 00:00:13,139
impossible to separate are you Veda from

5
00:00:13,139 –> 00:00:15,450
a context the history and the land that

6
00:00:15,450 –> 00:00:18,420
it grew out of however as a sister

7
00:00:18,420 –> 00:00:21,810
science to yoga ru Veda is important and

8
00:00:21,810 –> 00:00:24,029
that a few key concepts can change the

9
00:00:24,029 –> 00:00:26,420
way we approach our yoga practice

10
00:00:26,420 –> 00:00:29,189
according to Ayurveda each of us is made

11
00:00:29,189 –> 00:00:31,769
of a particular combination of the five

12
00:00:31,769 –> 00:00:34,680
elements to understand our natural

13
00:00:34,680 –> 00:00:36,809
tendencies according to the elements

14
00:00:36,809 –> 00:00:39,149
helps to understand our strengths and

15
00:00:39,149 –> 00:00:41,790
weaknesses if we have a lot of fire

16
00:00:41,790 –> 00:00:45,180
called Pitta our tendency is to move

17
00:00:45,180 –> 00:00:48,840
forward with passion no caution for

18
00:00:48,840 –> 00:00:50,250
burning the candle at both ends

19
00:00:50,250 –> 00:00:53,489
if earth and water are dominant called

20
00:00:53,489 –> 00:00:56,340
kapa our tendency is to remain steadfast

21
00:00:56,340 –> 00:00:59,879
and calm perhaps to the degree that we

22
00:00:59,879 –> 00:01:03,170
become physically or mentally stuck and

23
00:01:03,170 –> 00:01:06,030
if we’re predominately air and space

24
00:01:06,030 –> 00:01:09,600
called Vata then our tendency is to move

25
00:01:09,600 –> 00:01:12,570
quickly and creatively with a heightened

26
00:01:12,570 –> 00:01:15,150
sense of vibration perhaps to the

27
00:01:15,150 –> 00:01:17,909
detriment of complete follow-through or

28
00:01:17,909 –> 00:01:21,930
grounded action generally we will be a

29
00:01:21,930 –> 00:01:24,990
combination of these doshas so we might

30
00:01:24,990 –> 00:01:28,670
be called a Vata Pitta or kapha Vata or

31
00:01:28,670 –> 00:01:30,840
sometimes we’re called trudeau check if

32
00:01:30,840 –> 00:01:33,150
the elements show up evenly in our

33
00:01:33,150 –> 00:01:37,020
constitution our ru Vedic Constitution

34
00:01:37,020 –> 00:01:39,180
will determine strengths and weaknesses

35
00:01:39,180 –> 00:01:41,600
we have regarding our life force and

36
00:01:41,600 –> 00:01:44,490
whatever brings the lifeforce up we want

37
00:01:44,490 –> 00:01:46,590
to encourage and whatever brings the

38
00:01:46,590 –> 00:01:49,560
lifeforce down we want to discourage and

39
00:01:49,560 –> 00:01:51,450
what is a good choice for one person is

40
00:01:51,450 –> 00:01:53,659
not the right choice for another person

41
00:01:53,659 –> 00:01:56,520
now this is true of food choices and

42
00:01:56,520 –> 00:02:00,750
drinks and herbs and medicine career

43
00:02:00,750 –> 00:02:03,740
choices and of course yoga choices

44
00:02:03,740 –> 00:02:06,990
because we’re all different the way that

45
00:02:06,990 –> 00:02:08,788
yoga is practiced will affect us

46
00:02:08,788 –> 00:02:12,420
differently we all need different intent

47
00:02:12,420 –> 00:02:13,110
different

48
00:02:13,110 –> 00:02:15,450
focus different breath different

49
00:02:15,450 –> 00:02:17,670
postures to bring us into balance each

50
00:02:17,670 –> 00:02:21,600
day aria Veda has helped me to

51
00:02:21,600 –> 00:02:24,720
understand that balance is not a fixed

52
00:02:24,720 –> 00:02:27,990
or a final state our body systems are

53
00:02:27,990 –> 00:02:30,090
always changing they’re interacting

54
00:02:30,090 –> 00:02:32,550
they’re being altered by nature so

55
00:02:32,550 –> 00:02:35,490
balance really is being able to

56
00:02:35,490 –> 00:02:39,150
recognize the flow as the seasons alter

57
00:02:39,150 –> 00:02:42,630
so do we as the Stars and the moon and

58
00:02:42,630 –> 00:02:44,880
the Sun have patterns so do we

59
00:02:44,880 –> 00:02:49,620
our very nature is in flux the key point

60
00:02:49,620 –> 00:02:53,130
is to notice when you’re fighting your

61
00:02:53,130 –> 00:02:57,239
nature or stuck in a pattern and then

62
00:02:57,239 –> 00:03:00,030
you want to change that flow and we can

63
00:03:00,030 –> 00:03:06,060
do this with yoga dosha is a word that

64
00:03:06,060 –> 00:03:08,400
indicates our particular expression of

65
00:03:08,400 –> 00:03:10,860
the five elements in the body and in our

66
00:03:10,860 –> 00:03:11,900
personality

67
00:03:11,900 –> 00:03:15,180
the element should not be in combat but

68
00:03:15,180 –> 00:03:18,630
give rise to each other as in nature we

69
00:03:18,630 –> 00:03:21,360
must cling to any one state but see that

70
00:03:21,360 –> 00:03:23,760
the opposites are a continuation of the

71
00:03:23,760 –> 00:03:26,850
whole in re vedic yoga we’re using the

72
00:03:26,850 –> 00:03:29,340
postures the breath and the intent to

73
00:03:29,340 –> 00:03:34,739
realize this whole in re Aveda a Pitta

74
00:03:34,739 –> 00:03:38,280
Constitution is predominantly fire when

75
00:03:38,280 –> 00:03:40,650
imbalance but a person is a wonderful

76
00:03:40,650 –> 00:03:43,890
force of nature noble fearless unafraid

77
00:03:43,890 –> 00:03:46,230
to work think of the fiery people that

78
00:03:46,230 –> 00:03:48,269
you know they don’t stop until the job

79
00:03:48,269 –> 00:03:50,280
is done and they still have energy to

80
00:03:50,280 –> 00:03:52,980
burn personalities that are full of

81
00:03:52,980 –> 00:03:56,130
humor and sharp witted quick minds you

82
00:03:56,130 –> 00:03:59,160
can almost feel the sparks flying up it

83
00:03:59,160 –> 00:04:01,799
the body is built for speed compact

84
00:04:01,799 –> 00:04:04,290
muscular built to be active their

85
00:04:04,290 –> 00:04:07,560
complexion is ready and lustrous when

86
00:04:07,560 –> 00:04:09,690
out of balance you can see it right away

87
00:04:09,690 –> 00:04:13,019
in the skin to red and the eyes become

88
00:04:13,019 –> 00:04:16,108
too sharp if it is like to be dominant

89
00:04:16,108 –> 00:04:18,089
and they’re used to getting their way so

90
00:04:18,089 –> 00:04:20,579
when out of balance that looks like rage

91
00:04:20,579 –> 00:04:23,310
just underneath the surface fiercely

92
00:04:23,310 –> 00:04:26,250
stubborn insensitive blindly moving

93
00:04:26,250 –> 00:04:26,760
forward

94
00:04:26,760 –> 00:04:29,670
you can see this in a pit abadi with the

95
00:04:29,670 –> 00:04:32,340
chest forward means that the back is

96
00:04:32,340 –> 00:04:34,260
going to be very tight and in fact the

97
00:04:34,260 –> 00:04:36,240
whole body can become too tight hyper

98
00:04:36,240 –> 00:04:39,240
toned chronically contracted no memory

99
00:04:39,240 –> 00:04:42,240
of release to the detriment of other

100
00:04:42,240 –> 00:04:44,790
systems in the body problems may arise

101
00:04:44,790 –> 00:04:47,490
in the small intestine and manifest in

102
00:04:47,490 –> 00:04:50,870
headaches irritation inflammation

103
00:04:50,870 –> 00:04:54,150
indigestion problems with the skin and

104
00:04:54,150 –> 00:04:57,870
more serious complaints as well so what

105
00:04:57,870 –> 00:04:59,900
takes a pizza out of balance

106
00:04:59,900 –> 00:05:03,230
not enough downtime not enough quiet

107
00:05:03,230 –> 00:05:07,890
just not enough time in nature a Pitta

108
00:05:07,890 –> 00:05:11,210
may be so career-driven that he or she

109
00:05:11,210 –> 00:05:14,070
may have forgotten or maybe never really

110
00:05:14,070 –> 00:05:16,860
learned how to walk slowly by the river

111
00:05:16,860 –> 00:05:19,830
or just sit on the bank they’re the ones

112
00:05:19,830 –> 00:05:22,650
wanting to shoot the rapids but this is

113
00:05:22,650 –> 00:05:24,990
serious it’s unhealthy not to know how

114
00:05:24,990 –> 00:05:27,690
to be quiet and calm we need to set an

115
00:05:27,690 –> 00:05:29,880
example for our children and for each

116
00:05:29,880 –> 00:05:33,660
other what type of yoga does a pizza

117
00:05:33,660 –> 00:05:34,050
needs

118
00:05:34,050 –> 00:05:36,990
well pizzas love it hot they want the

119
00:05:36,990 –> 00:05:39,930
fire they like a challenge and they like

120
00:05:39,930 –> 00:05:42,540
to compete so fight fire with fire

121
00:05:42,540 –> 00:05:45,300
begin by burning off a bit of heat in

122
00:05:45,300 –> 00:05:47,400
the standing poses but then slow down

123
00:05:47,400 –> 00:05:51,890
and challenge the mind soothe the body

124
00:05:51,890 –> 00:05:54,660
bring the energy down you’ll notice in

125
00:05:54,660 –> 00:05:57,180
the pit to practice on this DVD we start

126
00:05:57,180 –> 00:05:59,640
standing and we do big movements we move

127
00:05:59,640 –> 00:06:01,530
through the Warriors to feel our

128
00:06:01,530 –> 00:06:04,140
strength but once we get down onto the

129
00:06:04,140 –> 00:06:06,900
earth we stay and do cooling poses such

130
00:06:06,900 –> 00:06:09,990
as forward folds or cooling gentle

131
00:06:09,990 –> 00:06:13,290
stretches easy twists breathing long

132
00:06:13,290 –> 00:06:17,460
slow exhalation try the earth breathing

133
00:06:17,460 –> 00:06:20,010
practice you can get the idea of how

134
00:06:20,010 –> 00:06:21,870
important it is to lengthen the

135
00:06:21,870 –> 00:06:24,320
exhalation

136
00:06:26,240 –> 00:06:29,180
the dominant elements of kapha are earth

137
00:06:29,180 –> 00:06:31,490
and water just exactly what a pizza

138
00:06:31,490 –> 00:06:34,039
needs more of a coffin nature is nicely

139
00:06:34,039 –> 00:06:37,069
described as salt of the earth or solid

140
00:06:37,069 –> 00:06:37,870
as a rock

141
00:06:37,870 –> 00:06:41,830
they’re known as elegant sensual loving

142
00:06:41,830 –> 00:06:44,410
radiant beyond measure when in balance a

143
00:06:44,410 –> 00:06:47,479
cuff of Constitution is going to be

144
00:06:47,479 –> 00:06:49,550

rounder features with rich dark hair and

147
00:06:55,310 –> 00:06:58,820
a moist complexion when out of balance

148
00:06:58,820 –> 00:07:01,419
earth and water in excess create havoc a

149
00:07:01,419 –> 00:07:04,460
heavy lethargic energy can take over the

150
00:07:04,460 –> 00:07:07,759
whole system one becomes stuck congested

151
00:07:07,759 –> 00:07:11,870
weighted down even depressed the seat of

152
00:07:11,870 –> 00:07:13,870
stagnation and kapha is the stomach

153
00:07:13,870 –> 00:07:16,759
congestion can arise there or in the

154
00:07:16,759 –> 00:07:18,770
lungs and the nasal passageways with a

155
00:07:18,770 –> 00:07:22,070
buildup of phlegm a cough out of balance

156
00:07:22,070 –> 00:07:24,199
carries too much weight in the body and

157
00:07:24,199 –> 00:07:28,069
in the mind what creates imbalance in a

158
00:07:28,069 –> 00:07:31,039
cough ah too much sleep not enough

159
00:07:31,039 –> 00:07:34,789

poses that heat the body with a breath

167

that’s an even steady pace 1 2 1

168
00:07:59,000 –> 00:08:02,840
inhale to exhale back bends and chest

169
00:08:02,840 –> 00:08:05,270
lifts are perfect for dispelling excess

170
00:08:05,270 –> 00:08:08,120
kapha they really build the heat moving

171
00:08:08,120 –> 00:08:12,380
the energy up called odana a couple can

172
00:08:12,380 –> 00:08:14,599
get stuck so the energy needs to move

173
00:08:14,599 –> 00:08:16,099
out to the periphery as well

174
00:08:16,099 –> 00:08:20,300
finding wind air and space try the cuff

flows that build heat confidence and

180
00:08:34,159 –> 00:08:36,880
agility

181
00:08:38,289 –> 00:08:40,809
according to aria Veda the dominant

182
00:08:40,809 –> 00:08:43,210
source of vatta’s nature is air and

183
00:08:43,210 –> 00:08:43,710
space

184
00:08:43,710 –> 00:08:46,540
their bodies are mostly long boned and

lean a Vata is swift and quick to change

186
00:08:49,900 –> 00:08:53,440
course photos can be great artists with

187
00:08:53,440 –> 00:08:54,430

a delicate Vata what kind of yoga does

212
00:10:14,020 –> 00:10:19,470
avital need well the Vata energy is this

213
00:10:19,470 –> 00:10:24,690
so let’s start by doing this

214
00:10:25,510 –> 00:10:29,649
and you can feel that the opposite is

215
00:10:29,649 –> 00:10:34,920
within the whole mottaz love to inhale

216
00:10:34,920 –> 00:10:37,389
but it’s so difficult to get them to

217
00:10:37,389 –> 00:10:40,300
really exhale all the air out in a long

218
00:10:40,300 –> 00:10:44,380
slow careful breath photos are dry by

219
00:10:44,380 –> 00:10:47,380
nature so you Jai breathing is perfect

220
00:10:47,380 –> 00:10:50,470
as it creates moisture photos can be

221
00:10:50,470 –> 00:10:54,130
weak in the core so using the bond s on

222
00:10:54,130 –> 00:10:56,760
the exhale to strengthen it’s just right

223
00:10:56,760 –> 00:10:59,199
in fact maybe the most important

224
00:10:59,199 –> 00:11:02,350
practice for Vata is breathing try the

225
00:11:02,350 –> 00:11:04,949
water or earth breathing practice and

226
00:11:04,949 –> 00:11:07,990
once you understand the breath then you

227
00:11:07,990 –> 00:11:10,920
can try the FATA sequence you’ll see

228
00:11:10,920 –> 00:11:14,199
rather than moving quickly up and down

229
00:11:14,199 –> 00:11:17,589
creating wind the movement is low to the

230
00:11:17,589 –> 00:11:20,850
ground like water flowing and graceful

231
00:11:20,850 –> 00:11:23,019
bringing the energy down to the earth

232
00:11:23,019 –> 00:11:26,410
with forward folds and pulling the

233
00:11:26,410 –> 00:11:29,730
energy in towards Center in Bound poses

234
00:11:29,730 –> 00:00:00,000
