  • Our modern society has a negative outlook on aging and we tend to glorify youth and oftentimes our elders are ignored and considered to be of no value to society. This glorification of youth leads to a battle against aging, along with a huge industry of anti-aging products. This is a battle that we will never win and one which can lead to feelings of disempowerment and a lack of self worth as we age. Ayurveda is the science of longevity and it provides guidelines on how to prevent disease, increase longevity and more importantly, how to have vitality in those extended years. Ayurveda also reminds us of the gifts of aging and how to utilize these gifts, empowering us as we age.

    In this episode Colette discusses the following:

    Types of aging: chronological biological How epigenetics plays a major role in determining our health and wellbeing. The components of aging according to Ayurveda: physical health mental health diet sleep stress management

  • We’re living in challenging times and this is resulting in a feeling of uncertainty and lack of stability in our foundational needs, like that of safety and security. This underlying stress can affect our body, our mind, our emotions and our behaviour.

    In this episode, Colette gives some great advice from Ayurveda on how to manage these stressful times. She focuses on simplifying the information on how to balance the doshas with the elements of space, air, fire, water and earth:

    Vata is balanced with structure, routine and grounding practices. Pitta is balanced with cooling, calming and less intensity. Kapha is balanced with more movement, lightness and social activities.
