Yoga for Fall
Yoga for Fall must warm the body without stressing the joints. Apply warm sesame oil to the skin and take a warm/hot shower before practice. Focus on standing postures, squats, slow flows, and deep Savasanas. Interested? Check out my Yoga and Ayurveda workshop Nov 20.

For excellent quality, ethical and safe herbs, spices, and oils, I recommend Banyan Botanicals. They even have a Kichari kit!

Yogi Tea Recipe
I recently served this tea to my yoga students and was inundated with recipe requests, so here it is, a caffeine-free fall cup.
½ tsp cinnamon powder or 1 stick
1 tsp coriander powder
½” piece of fresh ginger, diced into sticks
1 petal of star anise (not a whole star)
½ tsp fennel seed
2 Tbsp jaggery (evaporated cane juice AKA Sucanat, coconut sugar works too)
Boil all of the above in 32 ounces of water, then turn down to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir to make sure the sweetener isn’t stuck to the bottom.
Strain and serve.
Fall Diet TipsFavor these 3 tastes to promote balance
sweet (like rice and coconut)
sour (like lemon and yogurt)
astringent (like cranberries, pomegranates, and pumpkin)
