Today’s question comes from Paola Arriaga Guerrero from FACEBOOK

Hi Melissa!!!!
Hope this finds you well. I’ve been following your podcast for half a year now and my life has really improved in many aspects. Now I am to really start living my Yoga through practices like Ayurveda and hopefully I will get more into Kundalini. Today I practiced with the episode 116 about Ayurveda and the 5 elements and have a doubt, it seems I am kapha according to Dr. David Frawley’s website and your description, but you mentioned that Kapphas should not work in a cold weather. I really enjoy the cold weather and in fact, I am about to move into a place that has long periods with cold weather, so I was wondering what could I do to level or balance my Kappha energy when I live in this new place? It is important for me because I intent to stay and live in this place for a long time.
