WHEN IT COMES TO AYURVEDA, I’m a relative newbie. I still have a lot to learn about how to keep my tri-doshic constitution in good balance. But after working on this issue, I’m a lot closer to understanding the sister science of yoga and how it can help me to stay healthy and calm. Let’s face it: After the past year and a half, most of us are still feeling a bit off-kilter. Which is why we’ve packed this issue with Ayurvedic practices and tips designed to help you regain equilibrium. On page 32, Ayurveda expert Sahara Rose shares her best routines and rituals for combatting stress and getting a good night’s sleep. When you wake up refreshed, turn to page 53 for a stabilizing flow from yoga teacher Michelle Briks Prosper…

meet leslie rangel, the news yogi

LESLIE RANGEL loved her job as an on-air reporter at a television station in Oklahoma City. But covering devastating fracking-related earthquakes, chasing tornadoes, and interviewing people on their worst days started to take a toll on her. Rangel found some balance in the yoga classes she’d taken since her days as a student at the University of Texas at Austin back in 2008. Then, in 2015, she started a 200-hour yoga teacher training at Ashtanga Yoga Studio in Norman, Oklahoma, and something clicked. “The big question posed to us as students was, ‘How are you living your yoga off the mat?’” says Rangel, who is now a morning anchor for a television station in Austin. The training led her to completely reevaluate her life. “I knew that there was a way to continue…

3 ways to treat sunburn

AYURVEDA Both oil and water can help broiled skin and overheated bodies heal. Below, how—and when—to use them. Hydration: Severe sunburn can produce flu-like symptoms: fever, chills, headaches, and fatigue. Ample hydration speeds recovery, just as it does when you're under the weather. Here’s how to get more H0,² depending on your dosha. Vata (air and ether dosha) needs more than just water to rehydrate. Aloe juice, honeydew melon, and cucumber are great options. Pitta (fire and water dosha) also needs to take extra steps to cool down. Try coconut water, celery, and watermelon. Kapha (earth and water dosha) types should opt for homemade low-sugar lemonade, romaine lettuce, and green apples. Oil Application (Abhyanga): Turmeric-infused brahmi oil, which is made from gotu kola (Centella asiatica) or brahmi (Bacopa monnieri) herbs, helps tone down inflammation and itchiness…

ayurveda can teach us to tend to our own health—and the earth’s

It’s winter and a year into a pandemic, and I’m talking from my home in Boston via Skype with a doctor in Secunderabad, India—not for a diagnosis of any one illness, but about the precarious health of both individuals and the world. And more important, how pairing modern medicine and ancient Ayurvedic thought can help both to heal. Shankar Prasad Adluri is a unique medical practitioner—he’s fully trained in modern medicine and an internist at a major facility, Sunshine Hospital in Secunderabad. But he also has the degrees necessary to practice the ancient art of Ayurvedic medicine in the Indian states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Thin and spry, Adluri looks younger than his 48 years, with a head of thick salt-and-pepper hair and a ready smile. He always appears in a…

bharadvajasana variations

TWIST WITH BOTTOM LEG EXTENDED If the classic posture bothers your knees, sit with one leg extended and the foot flexed. Cross your other leg over the elongated leg, placing your foot on the outside of your calf or knee. Slowly turn your torso toward your bent knee. IN A CHAIR To make this pose easier on your knees and hips, sit in a chair with your feet directly under your knees, hip-distance apart. Keep your thighs parallel to the ground. If you are taller, you may need to sit on folded blankets. If you are shorter, you may need to put folded blankets or blocks under your feet. Sit up tall. Place your hands on your thighs or the chair’s arm rests for stability. Gently twist to one side. SEATED TWIST For another variation…
