welcome & namaste,

What is Vata? This ancient Sanskrit term describes the "dosha" that relates to the air element. Vata season can elevate this element within our selves which can lead to feelings of anxiety, nervousness, panic, fear, inconsistency. Feeling overwhelmed. It can cause light, interrupted sleep. Mentally it can lead to spacey or scattered thoughts or excess worrying and thinking. It's also said to cause lack of focus or poor memory.

There are so many wonderful grounding, calming and soothing practices to bring our vata back into balance and we are going to go into a deep dive into these tools from the Yoga & Ayurveda traditions over this 5-Day Immersion!

"There was a wonderful balance of integrated yoga and there was also the space for yourself if you needed it. I didn't feel as though my every action was on an itinerary (which I loved). I loved getting the guest teachers in and having different experiences as well, especially the meditation class."
