Yoga with Melissa 47 is on Pitta Dosha. This is the third in a series of yoga classes on the Ayurvedic Doshas. This class is cooling, relaxing, surrendering, forgiving, and gentle for the fiery pitta dosha. Pitta means fire and refers to light, intelligence (which illuminates), heat, vision, digestion and transformation. Fire is the force behind digestion. It literally refers to transformation in the body from cellular to gastro-intestinal transformation. It also refers to our ability to digest impressions, emotions and ideas. Pittas are intelligent, courageous and have healthy vitality. When pitta is out of balance they can lack decisiveness or the motivation to accomplish their goals. See Dr. David Frawley’s book Yoga and Ayurveda for much more information on yoga and the ayurvedic doshas.
