Join me for Dinacharya Workshop: Daily Rhythms and the Ayurvedic Clock at Delta Groove Yoga in Memphis, TN

Our daily habits rather than our occasional indulgences have the most significant influence on our health. Many of the habits that our society views as “normal” today pull us out of nature’s rhythm and set us up for weight gain, interrupted sleep, inflammation, and even disease.

The ancient science of Ayurveda teaches us about different energies that rule in our bodies at different times of day. Planning activities at appropriate times sets us up for better health and more ease. We only get one body and when we engage in the rhythm it was created to thrive in, we engage in our best lives. However, when we ignore that natural rhythm, we suffer. Your reality in body, mind, and spirit is a reflection of your habits and your daily choices can either heal or undermine you.

In this workshop, we will discuss the natural rhythm, the energies that rule that rhythm, and how we can set our schedules up to feel our best in body, mind, and spirit.

Psoas, sciatica, and storing stress in the body

Located deep within the anterior hip joint and lower spine, the psoas major is critical for optimal postural alignment, movement, and overall well-being. The importance of the psoas runs deep and its function is more complicated than not. Energetically, it is responsible for holding emotions in the body, storing stress and trauma, as well as impacting nerves and energy systems. In addition, when the psoas is tight, we commonly see it affect the piriformis muscle, which can lead to inflammation in the sciatic nerve. The interconnection between these muscles and the first three chakras will be explored in this workshop, along with gentle yoga poses and postures that stimulate release and relief.
