I bet a whole bunch of thoughts pop into your head when you hear this word.
Well, generally, most of us women don't have control over when this time will be sprung upon us. For some it's a lot earlier and for some it's a lot later and then there's a whole bunch of us in between.
And everyone's situation is unique and different so you need to do what's right for you in terms of helping any kind of issues you may be experiencing.
Generally, when we enter perimenopause, on our way to menopause, the Vata time of life is coming upon us soon or we are already in it. Vata time of life is 50 and over.
Vata is governed by the elements of air and ether.
These elements are more subtle and light and mobile as compared to say the earth element which is more solid, heavy and dense.

Here's Part 3 of where I got the name WHAT'S YOUR MUD?

Ps. I first shared this 4-part story on Instagram with their 1-minute video limit so that's why I ran out of time :).
I wanted to share a message with you for this next year.
It started with what I've been reflecting on bringing into this new year in terms of my own continually evolving inner work and my work with helping other folks who are ready, to dive deeper into their own healing journey.
And this morning when I got up and after I walked my pup, I wanted to pick a card. The Ganesha deck called out to me and so that's the one I went with.
I asked 'What is a key message for this new year?'
And it is 'healing' as you can see in the card above.
It's amazing how many times the message is so spot on!
So with that, here's my message and new year's wish for you:
moments of seeing the beauty right in front of you
pauses of quiet and solitude
moments of full awareness when listening to those you love
pauses of deep gratitude
moments of peace and joy
pauses for nice deep breaths
moments of truth
pauses for reflection
moments of deep clarity
This summer I did a whole series on the chakras in my yoga classes and just finished up another series around the 5 Elements.
In the Yoga & Ayurveda Teacher Training I'm taking, we learned about the 5 elements, and what I learned blew my mind and that's why I created sequences around them for my yoga classes.
Ayurveda, the traditional medicine of India, says that all of creation is formed from the 5 elements coming together.
Each element has certain qualities, and they also all have a relationship to each other.
Once you understand this, you can use the 5 elements to help balance your body and mind.
When you think of Earth, what do you think of?
The qualities of earth are solid, heavy, dense, immobile, hard, cool, grounded, stable. In the body think in terms of the dense components such as bones, muscle & fat tissue, joints, ligaments and tendons.
