Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse

According to Ayurveda, you couldn’t do better than to live your life in harmony with Mother Nature. This also means being in tune with your own nature, your constitution or how you are built, mentally, emotionally and physically.


To achieve this alignment with the dynamic rhythms of the natural world, Ayurveda offers seasonal routines: your food and exercise requirements, how much you need to sleep, how much sexual activity is healthy for you or mindful activities.


Here are some GENERAL guidelines for SPRING (slowly showing in England though), to include in your life.


Please bear in mind that these are general principle. If you are interested in discovering the transformational benefits of Ayurveda, here's is the link for our one-to-one consultations.


SPRING Exercise

COME ON! Time to push yourself a bit physically. Why not yoga classes, biking or hiking in nature?


The ideal time to exercise is the morning or evening if you can accommodate your schedule. But of course be mindful of your limits given by your constitution and/or imbalance and check with your Ayurveda Practitioner if in doubt.


SPRING Diet

As appetite may decrease, please gradually reduce your intake of heavy, oily or fried foods and curtail sweet, sour and salty tastes.


Welcome light breakfast of fresh fruit, light lunches and dinners of cooked grains, steamed or sautéed vegetables, salads, sprouted beans and legumes like mung beans or red lentils.


Have a look at our blog for new ideas. An amazing choice would be a three day detox with kitchari. This traditional Indian dish is the ideal one to reboot your gut health.


The recommended tastes are pungent (a bit hotter spices), bitter (like green leafy vegetables) and astringent (like cooked grains and pulses, black tea, green apple, honey).


Go for herbal teas like ginger and lemon, turmeric, fennel, mint as they will always support your “agni”or digestive power and thus boost your immune system or Ojas.


SPRING Lifestyle

Favour stimulating routines and please avoid daytime napping.


Dress in colours like red, yellows and oranges that balance Kapha and when warmer choose blues, greens, purples and whites which balance Pitta.


It’s the prefect time to try something new, to socialise, enjoy your friends and loved ones. So, let's take advantage that we are gradually coming back to normal and DARE TO PLAY!!
