    Thank you for all the info!! I am very much a vata person and am constantly cold and getting sick with sinus issues.. I guess it doesn’t help that I live in very cold and dry Canada :( Appreciate your info and looking forward to more valuable knowledge from you!!

    Thank you

    I did enjoy Seasonal Bloom. And it helped me very much.
    Do you have any Ayurvedic practitioners you could recommend in the northern NYC area?

    I’ve been to several accupuncturists, the effect usually only last for the day.

    I often make ginger tea, maybe that is why the issue comes and goes.
    I will try this recipe tonight!

    Thank you

      Hi Autumn! Hmmm…I don’t know of anyone in northern NYC, but Dr. Pratima Raichur is in NYC. You could also check the website and see if they have any practitioners on there in your area. Good luck! And ginger tea is awesome! :)

    thanks a lot for this :)

    I love your website. I just downloaded Bloom and cannot wait to read it! I am VATA, and have been using oils with some success to feel better. (mornings are much better now).
    When I was a teenager, I began having stomach issues. They felt like cold wind blowing around in my abdomen. 20 years later now, after I eat, I get this “lump” that develops a few inches above my belly button, and to the left. It’s a mass of heat or wind or something. This then, sometimes, travels up into my left sinus and causes mucus.
    I have been treating myself for a vata condition since I have clearly been very dry for many years.
    But maybe this is Kapha?

    • Monica says:

      Hi Autumn,
      Yay, I hope you enjoy the Seasonal Bloom for vata! Hmm…I’m not sure what the lump might be. Have you seen an Ayurvedic practitioner or acupuncturist about it? They might have some insight for you. If it is some sort of stalled digestion, you could try making Indian Lemonade Appetizer and eat it before meals. If anything, it’s great for all doshas to keep digestion moving smoothly!

    This is really such a wonderful guide! I have now become wholly absorbed in ayurveda thanks solely to this website and THIS seasonal bloom since I’ve found out through reading it that I’m a Vata! So, thank you a zillion and I’ve already shared it as much as I possibly can so I hope it helps those I’ve shared it with too to come visit your site and read more about it all! :)

    Hey Monica!
    I’m new to your blog and Seasonal Bloom and LOVE IT!!! Your advice and info are right on the money…thank you for all you do!

  17. Jen says:

    Monicab you go sister!

    I stayed up way too late night reading your seasonal bloom. You are a fresh breathe of inspiration and hope. As I was reading last night, I could litterally feel your love poured into everyword on the page! Complete masterpiece with cheery artwork! Neato! Thank you! Sat Nam

    • Monica says:

      Jen you make me laugh!!! Your vata energy comes through in your writing :) YAY! I’m so glad you liked the Seasonal Bloom. There’s so much information in Ayurveda that we should know. And simple things!! Thank you for SUCH a kind and lovely note. You made my day :) Namasté.

  18. Monica says:

    Rose! Let’s email about your trip in Feb! xo
    Janet, so fun!!! Look at you delving into the wonderful world of teas! So fun. Stay warm!! xoxo

  19. Janet says:

    Monica, I just read your whole book, and am going to get the cumin, coriander and fennel to make tea!! Am experimenting with different types of teas (oolong, spearmint — I really like that -) so I’m looking forward to this — Snowing out right now, so I’ll make a quick dash to the store before coming back home and baking and brewing this tea — oh, also on the list is some almond oil!!

    Love ya

  20. Rose says:

    You are so Phenomenal!!!!!!!! Can I have just a little. I have the energy but the computer stuff is a challenge.

    PS. Am coming to a weekend retreat in Santa Monica. Do you have a couch or know of a cheap place to stay the last weekend in February?
    Namaste Rose

  21. Kathryn says:

    Hi Monica! I love your blog and the Seasonal Bloom is a keeper. Quick question please….I’m having a tough time locating Natalya’s stuff on Etsy. Can you provide that info again? Thanks so much and please keep posting. I look forward to checking your site!

  22. Thank you, Monica!!! This is a beautiful guide that you have written and so generously shared with all of us. I will surely pass it along to some fellow Vatas that I know. You know how much we appreciate a good read! So guess where I just came from (I think you might be jealous)? My appointment at Pratima Spa! One fringe benefit of living in crazy NYC is that I am a 5 minute walk from Pratima’s. This is good for my body and soul but bad for my pocketbook! Anyway, thought I would mention it because I saw that you referenced her book, “Absolute Beauty”.
    Thanks, again for the gift! :) Barbara

    • Monica says:

      Barbara!!! Youuuuuu got to go to Pratima today!? YES! So intrigued! I want to know everything! I wish we could sit for tea and you could tell me all about it. I would love to meet her someday. Hah! Aren’t all spa’s bad for the pocketbook? Did you read her book? She’s got good secrets in there – tons of recipes for her facials and things – really cool! Ahhh…thanks for the fun note Barbara and for the kind support always. Sleep well now with your glowing skin :) xo

  23. Diana says:

    I am trying to find a very good online course to enroll in -can you suggest one that will really give me the knowledge I need plus the support/help to begin to use my new skills?
    Awaiting your reply, Diana/ Fatimah Karimah
    on FB

    • Monica says:

      Hi Diana, my school Kerala Ayurveda had a really good online program. Other options: Mount Madonna might have one, CCA (California College of Ayurveda) might have one… Most online courses cover the same information but it will depend on your schedule as to which one most resonates. Definitely call which ever schools you are looking at and ask lots of questions. Also, you can do online but you must do hands on training as well. So you could start with online and add attend workshops, weekend lectures, and/or specialized training. One cannot learn Ayurveda only online…it’s a life science so we have to practice with LIFE!

  24. Torrie says:

    Thank you, Monica!! Love, love, love it! I shared with 4 of my vata co-workers and they thank you too!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours

  25. Monica says:

    I love you guys!!!! Thanks for the heartfelt words and for sharing. Mark, I especially agree with your comment. Sharing this info can only help us all! Namasté everyone.

  26. Sarah says:

    Can’t wait to read it! So appreciate your advice. So insightful and fits me so well. Stuff I would never think of myself and so helpful.

  27. Deborah says:

    This is beautiful! Great work, Monica B!

  28. Alicia says:

    Hey Monica, loving the seasonal Bloom and all the vata tips, thanks so much!
    I went straight out and bought sesame oil and have been slathering diligently since… also using it as lip balm for my chapped lips and it works really well.
    I also crocheted my own cup warmer last night after seeing those cool ones in your feature & am keeping my digits nice and toasty on it right now!
    Hurrahh for autumn!

  29. Ailar says:

    Wonderfully written and designed! Enjoyed it :) Thank you!

  30. Mark says:

    Thanks for the beautiful summary and reminders! I will pass it on to even those who do not yet understand ayurveda! It can only help us all!!

  31. Liz Thompson says:

    Oooooo, I can not wait to read it! I’ve been waiting ;)

  32. love it! did you do the art yourself? I would love to share this with my college students in January – let me know if I can add this to my syllabus! And I will be adding your link onto my blog, the Well-Seasoned Woman….
