AYURVEDIC WELLNESS

Ayurveda is the “sister science” to yoga. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that literally translates as “the wisdom of life” or “the knowledge of longevity”.

Ayurveda…the traditional Hindu system of medicine (incorporated in Atharva Veda, the last of the four Vedas which constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism), which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing. It was developed thousands of years ago in India. It is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. The primary focus of Ayurveda medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease. But treatments may be recommended for specific health problems.

According to Ayurvedic theory, everything in the universe, living or non-living is connected and good health is achieved by achieving the harmony among all the elements of nature. Ayurveda views the world from the perspective of three doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. These doshas are considered the energetic forces that translate into certain traits or characteristics specific to an individual. Each individual has their own unique doshic make-up, also known as their constitution. In learning more about one’s own constitution, an individual can begin to realize and make choices, ultimately enjoying a greater sense of balance and overall wellness.

Ayurvedic wellness resembles an integrated method of healing and developing a perfect balance between the mind, body and soul. It includes understanding the inter-generational perspective of Ayurveda, getting centered on how energy works, trinity of energies and how to use this energy to balance one’s unique constitution. It imbibes the knowledge of outer eco-system and inner eco-system and their exchange. Ayurvedic wellness enhances the longevity of life in a sustainable manner.
