Autumn Equinox with Tej Dalal
One of the two times in the year when day and night are of equal length. It is that time of the year when we can think of bringing about balance, to bring our bodies and mind in sync with nature.
Ayurveda believes that all our health problems (whether physical or psychological) arise from an imbalance of some sort in our lives. A key philosophy of Yoga too is to bring about SAMANA or BALANCE through asanas, pranayama and meditation.
One of the most common by-products of our imbalanced lifestyle is the constant occurrence of headaches. Though it is an ailment that comes and goes (very often with the help of a pain-killer), it does cause discomfort and a lot of pain when present.
With the help of Ayurvedic principles and Yogic tools, we will try to unravel the various facets of headaches and take a sneak peek on how to prevent and treat them.
In this 90-minute Autumn Equinox workshop we will focus on:
- Different kinds of headaches and their possible causes (diet, sleep, stress)
- Practice a therapeutic sequence of Asanas
- Pranayama (breathing exercises) to alleviate the pain and symptoms
- Meditation techniques that you can practice on your own
- Savasana with singing bowls to experience the healing power of vibrations
