Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India based on the laws of nature. It recognizes that we as humans are made up of the same elemental qualities as the Earth: Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of preventative health by encouraging us to flow in alignment with the natural cycles. This relates to the seasons and time of day or night, better guiding our routines of eating, sleeping, and activity.
It also addresses imbalances in our health by restoring each individual’s preconceived constitution. Ayurveda is seen as a sacred holistic practice for its deep inner standing that each of us serves a unique purpose. Healing is balancing our own unique energies in accordance with our mind-body makeup.
Perfect Health reflects awareness in the connection of Mind, Body & Spirit.
An imbalance in one translates to another; thus Ayurveda is the science of harmoniously balancing one’s whole being in respect to their unique makeup.
Everything we encounter & experience is a Sensory Impression. Sensory impressions are constantly surrounding us and influencing our well-being. Music, movies, books, overheard conversations, city smells, natural aromas, interior decoration, art and the very food we take into our bodies all have an effect on the way we feel & perceive life.
Ayurveda teaches how to harmoniously flow along with our surroundings day to day. Better knowing what is an actual part of us and what is a separate influence. Then, we are able to better manage our role in life rather than being thrown around by its influences.
Ayurveda shows us what an ideal healthy life looks & feels like, as well as giving the tools to access these qualities.
Most importantly, Ayurveda teaches of the self-compassion necessary to heal any ailment or imbalance. With the mind’s wellness being interlaced with our health, cultivating acceptance & unconditional love for oneself is a marvelous, grounding foundation.
