Hi Yogis,

admittedly, i am work in progress, especially in this department- the entire reason this studio exists was in a rather large effort to keep dinacharya, or daily rituals of self-care, that my teacher Stacey taught us was a deep reason as to how + why the yoga works
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
dinacharya practices are the cornerstone of starseed yoga immersion training program and emphasize the mornings as our most sacred time. these hours create the foundation for the rest of our day [in sanskrit ‘dina’ means day, sun or flow, and ‘charya’ means practice or conduct]
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the bare bones of Ayurvedic bio-rhythms are now recognized by modern science as #CircadianRhythms
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
in 2017, the Nobel Prize in Physiology was awarded to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael C. Young for their ‘discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythms’

classical Ayurvedic texts outlined this centuries ago, including science of sleep, detoxification, and renewal in detail in ‘Charaka Samhita’ outlined in the chapter ‘Dinacharya’
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
modern science is indeed beginning to validate this ancient wisdom, but ultimately, self-healing with ayurveda is deeper than diet + workout plan. it is letting go of deep subconscious elements. if deeper analysis is not taken, weight will still remain.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
you can put the body through immense pain + lose the weight temporarily, but it will come back because the body is in a stress holding pattern, hanging onto what the mind + emotions are avoiding.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
we are bodies of water. water stores emotional information. take a look at your deep waters + commit to a cleansing process
