Shannon Salter Sliger RYT200 ISHTA
I am a ten year veteran yoga teacher. I trained with Yogiraj Alan Finger in New York. I.S.H.T.A stands for Integrated Science of Hatha, Tantra, and Ayurveda. It is a nice mix of Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga with an emphasis on safety. All levels will feel welcome and comfortable with many modifications given. Experienced yogis will be challenged at the same time.
During Cleanse Camp, an Ayurvedic Assessment will be done. From this information, you will learn your dosha - either Pitta, Vata, Kapha or a combination. Finding imbalances in your dosha can help decide a yoga practice that will bring greater harmony to your body.
A cooling sequence of yin for a Pitta imbalance will remove excessive heat through calming, restorative postures. All forward folds are great cooling poses for Pitta.
A settling, relaxing practice is good for Vata imbalances. A series of slow flow, standing postures, pranayama and meditation can soothe the feverish, cluttered, Vata mind.
A vigourous flow to create heat is most beneficial in a Kapha-based sequenced.
Following a yoga practice based on your dosha can help bring balance and peace.
