Balancing pitta dosha with earth and water elements

Please click on the video below to watch, 'Balancing pitta dosha with earth and water elements' on my YouTube Channel'.

Please read the disclaimer on the blog before following these videos -http://flexiladies.blogspot.co.uk/p/disclaimer.html

People with a dominant pitta dosha are often successful in their careers because of their drive.  They typically have 'Type A' personalities - they can be perfectionists, overly competitive and this can lead to stress, anger, irritability and digestive issues.  This is because pitta dosha is associated with the fire element.  

In our practice this week the intention is to keep the positive qualities of pitta - determination and drive but 'dampen the fire down' so that the negative effects of pitta dosha do not become all consuming.  By incorporating the earth element in our practice we can draw energy down from the head reducing stress which occurs when the fire of the pitta dosha 'burns out of control'.  I have also incorporated the water element in the practice to balance pitta as it helps us 'go with the flow'.  We also practice Moon Salutation.  You may need to practice this a few times before it flows easily so do pause the video if you want to do some extra rounds.  Once the salutation flows it is very calming, unlike Sun Salutations which are energizing.  We end our practice with a meditation to help us 'go with the flow'.
