Hello, it's Cate Stillman with
yogahealthcoaching.com and yogahealer.com, and I've been asked to
finish the series on overweight-ness in Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. So
you may have heard the episode on overweight Vatas, or the episode
on overweight Pittas, and not the episode on overweight Kaphas,
because I hadn't created it until right this moment.
Often, when someone is
overweight, they assume they are Kapha. As an Ayurvedic
practitioner, we think, "Hmmm, maybe. But maybe not." And yet
sometimes, the person that we're talking to is indeed an overweight
Kapha, that their prakruthi, their constitution, is Kapha, and that
the nature of their imbalance, or vikruthi, is also Kapha. And
that's unusual. It's unusual enough that I created the overweight
Vata and the overweight Pitta episodes: That's where you have an
overweight Vata person – their prakruthi is Vata – and their
imbalance also might be Vata-provoking Kapha. Or it might be an
overweight Pitta, and the imbalance might be a Vata or a Pitta
imbalance-provoking Kapha, or a Kapha imbalance.
But the thing is, Kapha
imbalances are pretty unusual in this day and age. Tune in to find
out why, and to find out whether or not your extra pounds are
really the cause of Kapha.
What you'll get out of tuning in:
to tell if your extra weight is really a kapha
and how much kaphas should eat in a day
to leverage kapha strengths to your advantage
- Kapha imbalance is actually rare in this day and age! While this
may seem strange because we have such a sedentary and heavy-diet
culture, the vibration and pace of life is really quite
- Kaphas are strong, stable, faithful, trustworthy, and dependable.
They naturally accumulate people, friends, money, and bodily
tissue. In order to befriend your kapha constitution, you have to
get in touch with this accumulation tendency.
- As a kapha, you can afford give away. As you realize how much you
can give away physically, you become lighter, brighter, more
inspired, and more mobile, and you realize how much service you can
be to humanity.
- Kaphas really only need to eat 1-2 meals a day, which may sound
terrible! But if you look at it from an energetic standpoint,
you'll realize that you'll save so much time that you otherwise
would have spent buying, preparing, and eating food.
- A Kapha's deepest bliss is nurturing the people, the causes, and
the projects they care most about. Learn to leverage those gifts
through service and connection, rather than carrying that
generosity in your physiology.
a Kapha to befriend their constitution, it often means getting
really in touch with their accumulation tendency." - Cate
