Ayurveda, or the Knowledge of Life, is the world’s oldest known medical science originated in India over five thousand years ago.
The word Ayus means “span of life” and Veda means “knowledge”
Ayurveda is a holistic science that establishes that body, mind and consciousness are in constant interaction and relationship with all living beings in nature. We are small expressions of the Universal Consciousness.
According to Ayurveda, everything in the Cosmos is created out of the combination of the five elements, space, air, fire, water and earth. We are all born with our personal combination, which determines our Prakruti or constitution. As long as we remain balanced we enjoy perfect health. Weather, stress, diet, lifestyle, they all can disrupt your Prakruti’s balance, and this is how disease starts to manifest.
To restore our balance, Ayurveda will use proper diet, asana (exercise), pranayama (breathing) and meditation.
In an Ayurvedic consultation you will find out which is your dosha or personal constitution, guidelines for detoxification, your personal diet, yogasanas, pranayama, aromatherapy blend and meditation technique to bring you back to your natural state of health and well-being.
