    Favorite Quotes: “When I look at the Ayurvedic diet, I look at what is food? What is food according to Ayurveda? What is nourishment according to understanding your constitution? So we get into a different level of complexity where it’s not like these yes and no lists. It’s more, notice the impact that different foods eaten at different times have on you and see if you can find seamless digestion. What they call Sama Agni. Perfect balanced digestion.” - Cate Stillman  “Ayurvedic diet rule number one, like increases like and the opposites reduce each other.” - Cate Stillman “Vata accumulates in the colon so anything that’s too airy they’ll get bloated and gassy. Pitta accumulates in the small intestine so anything that’s too fiery, like hot sauce, they’ll tend to get the runs from because there’s already a lot of bile in their small intestine. And Kapha accumulates in the stomach and it’s mucus. So we’ve got gas, bile and mucus (and these are translations for Vata, Pitta and Kapha) are the forces as they go out of balance in the body.” - Cate Stillman “What we want to do is let the body feed itself, get more matter over mind. Most of us have way too much information in our brains about how to eat. I’d rather not rely on our brains about how to eat! Build body awareness. Build body wisdom, body intelligence about what to eat. The body is physical, it’s part of nature.” - Cate Stillman

It comes from not being as involved in the world. It comes from not being physical.” - Cate Stillman

    What is Pitta Dosha

    What is Pitta Dosha

    Timestamps:  4:22 The function of Pitta in the body and mind. 7:19 That qualities of Pitta and how it feels in the body and mind.  10:03 The nature of Pitta imbalances in the mind. 12:58 Physical qualities of Pitta. 19:32 How to calm and balance Pitta. 20:11 Practices to help the Pitta mind unwind. 22:38 Foods that aggravate and calm Pitta. Favorite Quotes: “It’s discriminating in nature. It’s separating the wheat from the chaff. It’s separating the truth from the BS. That’s the natural power of Pitta in the mind.” - Cate Stillman “In the paradox is the healing. One of the paradoxes of Pitta in the mind is to have compassion, to actually soften and try to see with empathy all sides of the situation. For a lot of Pitta types this can be the hardest work.” - Cate Stillman “So in terms of digestion, this is one of the easiest ways to identify if you have more Pitta. You’ll tend to have a stronger appetite, you’ll tend to be able to eat more frequently than other people. The whole ‘hangry’ word for people who get angry when they’re hungry, that’s more a Pitta type.” - Cate Stillman  “Because they’re such hyper-metabilzers if they eat a high carb diet they’re body is going to burn through everything really quickly. Having a substantial meal in the middle of the day that’s higher in protein and higher in fat can really help a Pitta person.” - Cate Stillman “Pitta’s have to learn how to turn off. Because their mind is so strong they have a desire to go and go and go. Developing a strong discipline to not working after the sun goes down can be a phenomenal lifestyle change for Pitta; to actually unplug. The time between 6:00pm and 10:00pm, that’s the time of Kapha. That’s the time of earthy watery energy. It’s the time of connecting and being with our people and relaxing, enjoying, reflecting on the day. A Pitta type with a Pitta imbalance will tend to burn the candle at both ends and keep working after dinner, checking email, multitasking, getting everything done before going to bed, and that leads to a Pitta imbalance. They’re violating the rhythm of rejuvenation.” - Cate Stillman

    Favorite Quotes: “Vata is the energy of wind, and it's air moving through ether, air moving through outer space. It’s the universe expanding and it’s all the movement in the universe. Pitta is the energy of fire, it's the energy of digestion. It’s the energy of intensity, of focus, of goal setting and moving towards a direction. It’s the energy of vision into action. So those energies are really super different. One expands and moves all around in infinite potentiality and the other goes towards an object. Think about it. It’s not the same thing at all. If you're trying to put out a fire, that's one thing. If you're trying to calm down a whirlwind, that's quite another.” - Cate Stillman “One of the goals of yoga is to actually become nothing so you can intentionally become something. This practice of dissolution and then reengagement is so deeply healing for pitta types.” - Cate Stillman “Bow and allow the breath to lead.”  - Cate Stillman “What we need to do is bring all that scattered energy inward and downward. Because what’s happening is the daily rhythm of a person with vata stress imbalance is all their energy is going upward and outward and it’s getting scattered to the wind. We want to cultivate the energy of earth, the energy of water and the energy of fire for a vata reducing practice.” - Cate Stillman
