Ayurveda Yoga Journey believes that seeing the world is a powerful tool for self growth, and we seek to make that experience as achievable as possible for communities everywhere. Often, group travel with like-minded people of the same community, is a terrific way to make off-the-beaten-path locations, and new experiences, more accessible

Ayurveda Tastes – Sour

Ayurveda recognizes six tastes, each of which has a vital role to play in our physiology, health, and wellbeing

🍋According to Ayurveda tastes Sour is composed of Earth and Fire and is hot, light, and moist by nature. It is commonly found in citrus fruits (such as lemon and limes), sour milk products and fermented substances (including wine, vinegar, pickles, sauerkraut, and soy sauce)

🍋Used in moderation, Sour taste stimulates digestion, helps circulation and elimination, energizes the body, strengthens the heart, relieves thirst, maintains acidity, sharpens the senses, and helps extract minerals such as iron from food.

🍋It also nourishes all the vital tissues (dhatus) except the reproductive tissues (the exception being yogurt, which nourishes all the tissues)

••Taste is made from the same five elements that make up the dishes in our body.When your doshas are out of balance, these six tastes can help you repair this imbalance••

⬇️Vata ⬆️ pitta and kapha Sour (decreases Vata, increases Pitta and Kapha)
