Ayurveda is the traditional and holistic medicine of India and is over 5000 years old. Ayurveda is a wise science that has truly stood the test of time, and is often termed the “Science of Life”. It heals on all levels of the individual being and teaches you how to nourish and to care for yourself and others.
Ayurveda, the “sister science to yoga”, is now spreading widely throughout the world. While Yoga and Ayurveda have diverged over the last 150 years, especially in the West, they are beginning to reconnect as they traditionally were – a positive indication for transformation, healing, and consciousness.
Ayurveda is strong on the idea of creating a long & fulfilling life, with its principles encouraging great vitality, health and longevity. The actual practice of Ayurveda is largely based on prevention, rather than cure. At the core of prevention is the traditional Ayurvedic daily routine and long held customs of personal healthcare. These are empowering, rejuvenating and nurturing practices of regular health care maintenance that can be shared with others to improve health overall.
