Daily Yoga for Pitta Dosha (All Levels)

When the pitta dosha (the elemental energies of fire and water) is out of balance, we can experience too much physical and mental heat. Some of the symptoms of a pitta imbalance include excessive sweating, irritability, agitation, and mental intensity. To bring pitta back into balance through our yoga practice, we need to release heat and soften the tendency to grip and overdo. Join Sarah Guglielmi for this targeted practice that incorporates twisting postures, dynamic standing poses, side stretches, and a guided relaxation in savasana.

About the Teacher

Sarah Guglielmi

Sarah Guglielmi is a professional educator and clinician in the fields of yoga, meditation, and ayurveda. She was initially drawn to yoga over 15 years ago, while working as a product development engineer, and looking for relief from chronic stress and illness. Sarah has not only regained her health, but discovered a deeper dimension to life she finds rich and inspiring. Her overarching intention is to make the therapeutic power of yoga and ayurveda accessible and transformative for her students and clients. Sarah has served on the faculty of the Himalayan Institute and Yoga International for the past 10 years and has taught numerous workshops on yoga, yoga philosophy, subtle yoga energetics, meditation, stress management, yoga therapeutics, and ayurvedic lifestyle. She travels nationally as a teacher trainer for the Himalayan Institute's Yoga and Ayurveda Professional Certification Programs. After completing her 200-hour teacher training with the Himalayan Institute in 2002, she lived in residence for 10 years at its Pennsylvania headquarters, where she studied directly with Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Rolf Sovik, Sandra Anderson, Shari Friedrichsen, Rod Stryker, Kathryn Templeton, Dr. Carrie Demers, Mary Cardinal, and Dr. Rosy Mann. Since then, she has completed her certification as an Ayurvedic Health Councelor (AHC). She is deeply grateful for the authentic and masterful training she continues to receive from this profound lineage. Prior to joining the Himalayan Institute, Sarah was an engineer with W. L. Gore and Associates, and holds a master's degree in materials engineering from the University of Delaware. She currently resides in Buffalo, NY, where she serves on the staff of the Himalayan Institute of Buffalo and as an adjunct faculty member of Daemen College.
