What is Ayurveda?
It is the oldest Eastern system of medicine and is based on the idea of balance in
bodily systems using diet, herbal treatment, asana, and daily routines to bring balance and
harmony into the body, mind, and spirit.
Ayurveda’s purpose is longevity of life – one brimming with health, joy, and vitality.
Ayurveda is a complementary practice to yoga and is intended to be utilized in conjunction with
all yoga practices, it supports yoga in the same way the roots and trunk of a tree
support its branches and leaves as they reach into the heavens to gather Light. Ayurveda is
drawing an awareness of your actions as they pertain to the harmonious or disharmonious
relationships within yourself and with nature.
It is difficult to say exactly how old Ayurveda is, as it was originally passed down orally from
teacher to student but some estimate that it dates back to 5,000 BCE.
There are no boundaries that contain these worldly concepts and ideologies. You will recognize
elements of Ayurveda across all regions of the world, regardless of culture or belief system. It is
all-encompassing, and forever existing as part of the inherent structure of life – hence its direct
translation – Science of Life.
Every action you take leads you to experience the karmic consequences and
sufferings of your choices. These actions lead to greater awareness…and the
evolution of your consciousness through the system of Ayurveda.
