LAST WEEK'S EPISODE:
The Dynamic Balance of Ayurveda and Yoga
Change is a constant element in life. Learn about essential tools that allow us to live in peace, harmony, and joy despite the ever-changing world. In Yoga, balance extends beyond the physical skill we build doing postures to our mind, emotions, and spiritual life. Through Ayurveda, diet and lifestyle practices help us to harmonize our innate constitution so that we experience optimum wellbeing. Felicia Tomasko, Editor-in-chief of LA Yoga Magazine, joins Yogacharya Ellen Grace O’Brian for a conversation about the unique tools and perspectives that Yoga and Ayurveda provide to help balance our lives.
