Late Winter Is a Time for Rest and Rejuvenation

Late winter is a time for rest and rejuvenation, according to Ayurveda. So even though Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow this year, and an early spring is predicted here in the Northern Hemisphere, we still have a few weeks to take advantage of this seasonal downtime. Many of us living in colder climates are making the shift from Vata Season (fall/early winter) to Kapha Season (late winter/spring). You can feel the cold, dry, lightness of Vata shifting to the cold, damp, heaviness of Kapha.

Be Mindful as the Ayurvedic Season Shifts

Here in the Northeast where I live, and in many other parts of the world, we are transitioning from Vata Season to Kapha Season.

Vata and Kapha have very different qualities. Vata is light, dry, mobile, cold while Kapha is heavy, wet, cold, stable. You can see that they only share the cold quality.

If we think about this and how we are comprised of the five elements (air, ether, fire, water, earth) we can only imagine how hard our organism must work to stay balanced when the seasons shift.
