Ayurveda is the Science of Life
Ayurveda originated in India over 5000 years ago as a complement to yoga.
While yoga focuses on the pranic body, or energy body, Ayurveda focuses on the mental and physical body.
The Science of Ayurveda teaches us how to keep body and mind clean in order to prevent disease and live a healthy life.
We can achieve this with the help of right food, right yoga, right pranayama (breathing) and cleansing therapies (panchakarma).
According to Ayurvedic Science, people can be divided into three categories: vata (air and space), pita (water and fire), kapha (earth and water).
Ayrvedic doctors will help you determine your individual constitution or dosha (ie. whether you are kapha, vata or pita) and instruct you on how to adapt your lifestyle according to your dosha.
