Before I started working with alchemy, a forerunner of chemistry based on the transformation of matter, I was trying to juggle mind, body, and soul practices separately. I was following different programs and driving myself a bit crazy in the process—not finding quite what I was looking for and feeling like a hamster on a wheel. Eventually, even my yoga and meditation practices felt stagnant and worn out. To an outside observer, my life was a dream: I had a loving marriage, a stable income, and a fulfilling career. Yet I felt I still hadn’t “made it,” and I constantly felt overwhelmed and frazzled.

Ayurveda is the world’s oldest health system and the sister science of yoga. Ayurveda is based on the elements in nature. According to Ayurveda, there are three mind-body types called the doshas. Vatta, Pitta, and Kapha. Vatta is air, Pitta is fire and Kapha is the earth. Based on your mind-body type, Ayurveda offers various nutrition, self-care, and spiritual recommendations to bring the mind, body, and spirit back into balance and harmony.

In this video, Sky interviews Sahara Rose, an Ayurvedic expert and nutritionist. Sahara discusses Sky’s Pitta imbalance and advises her how to structure a meal plan to bring her body back to balance.
