Yoga and Ayurveda together are India’s traditional, natural system of health and medicine, and have been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Traditionally Yoga – the Union between the mind and the body with Ayurveda – the science of life are practiced together one-on-one with a practitioner who knows your strengths and weaknesses.
Yoga is a science, a philosophy of life, a code of conduct, an attitude and an approach, as well as an art of living.
By practicing Yoga we can enhance our physical well-being, mental peace, harmony, moral elevation and become spiritually uplifted.
Ayurveda views each and every person as unique, with a unique mind-body constitution and a unique set of life circumstances.
Ayurveda states disease comes in six stages and Yoga provides the bridge to listen to our bodies messages. Ayurveda holds that specific disease conditions are symptoms of an underlying imbalance. It does not neglect relief of these symptoms, but its main focus is on the big picture: to restore balance and to help you create such a healthy lifestyle that the imbalance won’t occur again. Consideration for the individuals dosha (body type), assists to determine the natural healing approaches and recommendations for daily living. This is in alignment with modern science which views individuals as unique in the universe, with a unique DNA.
Ayurveda provides insights into how to live your life in harmony with nature and her rhythms.
Using food as medicine – doesn’t it make sense?
What you put into your body has a direct effect on its running, just like a car?
Food can affect your emotions, your stamina and your behavior.
In Yoga Ayurveda we can learn about what to eat as certain foods are beneficial for our digestive systems and others detrimental, managing our daily routine and techniques for stress management with Yoga asanas for increased fitness and alertness.
The most important lesson Ayurveda has to teach us, is that our health is up to us.
Every day of our lives, every hour of every day, we can, and do, choose either health or illness. When we choose wisely, nature rewards us with health and happiness. When we persistently choose unwisely, nature, in her wisdom, eventually sets us straight: She makes us sick and gives us a chance to rest and rethink our choices.
