Teas for the Doshas
In the delicate balance of Ayurveda, our well-being is intricately connected to the shifting seasons. As winter gracefully envelops the world, it brings with it the prominence of Vata dosha, introducing qualities of dryness, coldness, and movement. This natural occurrence can sometimes leave us feeling scattered or longing for warmth, disrupting the harmony within our bodies. Yet, Ayurveda, the ancient science of life, offers us profound wisdom. Each dosha - Vata, Pitta, and Kapha - responds uniquely to the changing weather. Vata, already marked by qualities of cold and dryness, can become imbalanced, while Pitta may struggle with the season's intensity, and Kapha can feel the chill penetrating their inherent warmth.
In this season of winter, our aim is to restore equilibrium. The teas we explore hold the key, meticulously crafted to pacify each dosha's unique imbalances. Vata, with its delicate constitution, finds comfort in the soothing embrace of lavender and chamomile in our Lavender & Chamomile Serenity Tea. Pitta, often sensitive to heat, benefits from the cooling properties of roses and hibiscus, found in our Rose & Hibiscus Cooling Tea. Kapha, prone to cold and dampness, is invigorated by the warmth and zesty essence of ginger and lemon in our Ginger & Lemon Revitalizing Tea.
These teas are more than just delightful infusions; they are ancient recipes carefully designed to bring harmony to your unique dosha, ensuring your well-being aligns with the serene rhythm of the season. Let’s delve into the art of balancing our doshas through these aromatic concoctions, embracing the wisdom of Ayurveda as we navigate winter's embrace.

❤ WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT ASHLEY CRUZ YOGA ❤
"From Aldea Yanapay (great school of love to children), to the incredible homely hostel la boheme, to the food at mercado san blas and at greenpoint... My 6 weeks in Cusco/Qosqo/centre/gravitational centre were all truly well balanced out by Ashley ● I have been doing yoga for five years in London, Lisbon and NYC and I was wonderfully surprised by the teacher Ashley in Cusco, Peru. From her words, to the sense of opportunity, helping, the pace, the getting everyone's names and brief "why am I here", taste for music and simply those oils... vinyasa gained a new look for me. ● You made me feel so balanced out, just when I needed that push. May your excellent work continue and your knowledge be taken further." ~ Yours, Ana Maria (portugal)
