What is Ayurveda?
A Sister Science to Yoga
Ayurveda (A-yur-ve-da) is a 5,000 year old system of medicine with origin in India and is defined as 'the science' or 'knowledge of life'. Ayurveda emphasizes illness prevention through proper lifestyle choices, seasonal observances, and body constitution analysis.
Ayurveda is grounded in the metaphysics of the ‘five elements'- earth, water, fire, air and ether--all of which are believed to compose the makings of the Universe.
Ayurveda stresses a balance of the five elements within the body, because according to its unique philosophy, these energies (or doshas) are of utmost importance for the body to maintain homeostasis and wellbeing. When these energies find themselves out of balance, diseases are created. It is believed that by building a healthy metabolic system, attaining good digestion, and proper excretion one attains vitality.
By focusing on preventative measures, such as exercise, yoga, meditation, and bodywork and by addressing the body, mind, and spirit/consciousness in divine unison inevitably health and vitality will ensue and be restored.
Ayurveda is a true, 'holistic' science- taking a look at the WHOLE person and their personal story rather than just looking at a specific symptom or disease. Ayurveda restores people to their true nature, aligning them with the rhythm of the universe that is in harmony with our own unique frequency.
