According to Ayurveda the sister philosophy to yoga each season is governed by a particular dosha/ humour.
Summer is ruled by Pitta dosha, fire, but as we move into Autumn Vata dosha takes over.
Vata, is composed of air and space element, it’s irregular and responsible for movement.
It has the qualities of cold, light, rough, dry, and is changeable, which are all similar to the qualities of autumn.
If we do not adapt at this time then this is reflected in our mental, physical and emotional health.
Vata is responsible for nervous disorders as well as digestive disorders; as such we may feel nervous, anxious, erratic or overwhelmed, emotionally and mentally, and physiologically we are more prone to constipation, gas and bloating.
With a few changes to your routines, you can combat all of this and transition smoothly into the new season with ease and comfort.
