Student Experiments with Ayurveda to Appease Asthma

As part of Axis Yoga’s Denver-based teacher training program, students conduct personal experiments that bring yogic principles into their daily lives. Some students choose to explore the application of different yogic yamas such as non-violence and truthfulness, while others experiment with asana or pranayama in various aspects of their lives. This student chose to conduct an experiment with Ayurveda. She conducted her experiment over the course of two weeks to see how Ayurvedic modifications to her diet and lifestyle would affect her asthma.
