Spring Cleansing

Spring Series 1 - Herb Planting


Spring Equinox is coming on March 20th this year, when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of the day and night is nearly equal. It also marks the first day of spring! Our body feels lighter and our mood is brighter! It’s a perfect time to plant some flowers or herbs! Here are my favourite herbs - rosemary, mint, and basil seeds still not yet germinated. They are great for the eyes, their aromas are best to relax the mind, and they add great flavours to pasta!



Spring Series 2 - Cleansing


Spring is many people’s favourite season. The flowers are blooming, the weather is getting warmer, the sunshine is longer, and we feel lighter! However, many people also suffer from pollen allergies. Spring is a season to detox and cleanse the body. I use Neti pot in the morning to cleanse the nasal passages and to clear out mucous, dust, bacteria, pollen from the nose. I then use Nasya oil to lubricate the nasal tissues and prevent dryness. If you’re interested, check out these videos about how to use Neti pot and Nasya oil.

Spring Series 3 - Food


アーユルヴェーダにとって、春は身体を解毒するのに最適な季節と言われています。春には軽く、身体を暖める、クレンジングする食材が身体のバランスを整え、いいとされています。春には苦みや、辛み、そして渋みがある食材を多く摂取することで、身体のバランスを整えていきましょう。 アーユルヴェーダの教えでは、葉野菜、人参、大根、ナス、ピーマン、パプリカ、ペパーミント、ローズマリー、りんごなどが春に適した食材とされています!


According to ayurveda, spring is the perfect season to detoxify the body. To bring balance we need to eat light, warm and cleansing foods. The tastes to focus on in the spring are bitter, pungent, and astringent. There are many vegetables and fruits harvested during this season are good for the body, including green-leave vegetables, carrots, daikon, eggplants, bell peppers, paprika, peppermint, rosemary, apples, etc. Try to lighten up your body and mood now through healthy diets!



Spring Series 4 - Move the Body






In Spring, it’s time to get out of our shells and move our body. Get our blood flowing, thaw out from the heaviness of winter, and generate a light sweat to detoxify the body. According to Ayurveda, it’s recommended that we increase the dynamic and heating qualities of our asana practice to energize, detoxify, and balance the body and mind.
