Understanding Ayurveda helps yoga teachers and students access a more grounded presence both in their practice and their lives. This is especially true during times of change, uncertainty, and heightened anxiety. Chara Carruthers joins Mado on the podcast to talk about how the tools of ayurveda can help us to stay centered and maintain our self care long term. Listen to their in-depth conversation that spans topics such as how we can overcome tendencies towards comparisons and beliefs about what a yoga teacher “should” and “shouldn’t” be and the difference between engaging in self care vs. seeking comfort.
