What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old healing system founded in ancient India. It is derived from the Sanskrit word “ayus” meaning life, and “veda” meaning wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, offers a proven guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love and purpose. From the Ayurvedic perspective, human beings are not viewed as mere thinking physical machines, but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of the environment. Health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated.
Digestion- is the foundation for true health and Ayurveda places a lot of emphasis on meal times, meal planning, and remedies to increase digestive energy and eliminate digestive symptoms. Cooking with spices, eating seasonally, using herbal remedies, and proper weight management are key.
Lifestyle- Learning how to live in rhythm with the seasons and maintaining a daily rhythm increases energy and vitality, boosts the immune system, reduces stress, and ensures sound restful sleep. Ayurveda teaches the best time to wake up, eat meals, exercise, and go to sleep.
Spiritual practices- such as a daily meditation, breathing and yoga asana are part of an ideal Ayurvedic lifestyle and address emotional imbalances. Embracing ayurvedic wisdom is life-changing and provides deep transformation on every level of body, mind, and spirit.
