In this blend of tutorial and practice, Kathryn gives an overview of kapha dosha qualities, and explains how those with kaphic constitutions can support themselves during menopause using asana, pranayama, and relaxation practices. She also provides suggestions for daily practices, such as tongue scraping in the morning, and nourishing dietary tips.
The practice begins with “breath of joy” pranayama, then moves into an asana sequence, which includes a lunge-focused sun salutation specifically for kapha. Class concludes with a restorative pose designed to decrease the kaphic tendency for “heaviness in the heart.”
