Episode #14 - Ayurvedic Routines for Summer // Sarada Martin

In Ayurveda, ritucharya or seasonal routines are one of the key principles in the maintenance of good health. Every season has its own set of principles and practices that relate to the seasonal characteristics of that particular time of year, and to practice ritucharya is to understand how the seasons affect the energetic forces - known as doshas in Ayurveda - of our bodymind.

In this episode, Gabe is joined by Sarada Martin from the well-known tea brand, Organic India, who shares what Ayurveda and Naturopathy teach us about the impact the shift in season has on our body types and our different constitutions, as well as how to thrive this summer, whether physiologically, mentally or emotionally.
