AYURVEDIC NUTRITIONAL CONSULTATION (60 min)
According to Ayurveda, we are all born with our personal combination of the five Panchabuthas (elements) which determines our Prakruti or constitution. As long as we remain balanced we enjoy perfect health.
Weather, stress, diet and lifestyle can disrupt your Prakruti and disease may start 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’s imbalance, guidelines for detoxification, your personalized diet, yogasanas, pranayama, aromatherapy blend and meditation technique to bring you back to your natural state of health and well-being.
