In yoga, we always talk about the beauty on the inside, the beauty of your soul. We also know to treat our bodies as a temple. Are these opposites? How do we connect the two? Simple, form a relationship between your inner and outer Divine Self. Yoga Journal has a great article this month on Ayurvedic Self Care Rituals that I want to share with you to help you create a wonderful lasting relationship between your inner and outer DIVINE Self. Yes, YOU are divine.
Presenting your best self to the day – feeling healthy, spiritually full, and gorgeous – is a lovely offering we can make to the world! According to the wisdom of Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of health and longevity and the sister science to yoga, true beauty is what naturally arises from simple acts of self care.
The Ayurvedic self-care practices I am going to share with you over the next few days are designed to support the healthy functioning of your skin, hair, eyes, and feet which will kindle your radiance from head to toe. Each self-care ritual is an opportunity for you to care for your body as a sacred manifestation of life itself. When you honor yourself and your body in this way the vitality, grace, and generous luminosity of the goddess will shine through you.
