Ayurveda, yoga’s sister science and India’s traditional system of medicine, is believed to be around 5,000 years old, and is considered to be the longest continuously practiced system of medicine. While modern medical practices focus mainly on symptoms, Ayurveda addresses the root cause of illness with an emphasis on prevention.
Ayurvedic consultations are based on utilizing Ayurvedic principles to prevent health problems before they arise. The Ayurvedic lifestyle is focused on living in tune with the rhythms of Nature to maintain optimal health.
According to Ayurveda, the inner intelligence of your body is what prevents disease and promotes good health. This inner intelligence is expressed through the three doshas : Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The doshas regulate different functions of your mind, body and spirit. When Vata, Pitta and Kapha are in balance, they promote good health and longevity. When the three Doshas are out of balance, they can produce discomfort and disease.
During your consultation, we’ll assess your current state of balance/imbalance, and explore how adapting your daily self-care routines, yoga, pranayama, meditation, diet and lifestyle practices can restore balance, and facilitate your health and well-being. The true aim of Ayurveda is to clarify the body, mind and senses so that you can access your greatest potential for health and thriving.
