#25 Ayurveda for Empowerment, Compassion & Balance ~ w/ Julia Blohberger
For this episode, I sat down with Ayurvedic expert and Yogi Julia Blohberger. For a long time I’ve been interested in Ayurveda and what that can mean for my diet and lifestyle, and I am so happy and grateful that I was able to pick Julia’s brain on all things Doshas, elements, tongue-scraping and oil pulling!
Ayurveda is an ancient wisdom and lifestyle which shows us we are all unique beings – and how can we find balance in that along the way. We talk about finding compassion and self-love and how Ayurveda encourages a softer way of living.
Julia describes our connection to the five elements before diving deep into the three doshas (‘constitution types’): Kapha, Pita and Vata.
I ask her how we can live more in balance with the seasons and thus ourselves and she explains the good and ‘bad’ qualities of each dosha (which explain us how we can find that balance!).
From ceramic meditation bowls (LOL) to adjusting our gaze in yoga, and from traveling to oil pulling on your bike (WHAT?), Julia tells us ALL.
This is really a powerful and deep episode where you might want to write a few things down along the way. It is packed with soooo much wisdom!
This conversation showed me how accessible Ayurveda is and how small adjustments really do go a long way. It’s all about honouring yourself, the people around you as well as the animals, and nature which are all part of Mother Earth.
Let us know if you do the test and tell us which type you are and if you can relate to that!
