AYURVEDA

What is Ayurveda?

The science of Ayurveda was developed to bring an understanding of the human experience and develop a relationship with these fundamental principles of Nature. All that we experience and the way those experiences are processed are either leading us towards or away from living in balance with these forces. Life’s struggles can be ultimately measured by the degree of separation (vikruti) from this natural balanced state (prakruti)

Ayurveda is a science and art of LIFE. Ayur translates as life or longevity. Veda means knowledge, wisdom, or spiritual science. Ayurveda shows us how to attain optimal health as a wholesome foundation and sufficient energy to be and feel well in all areas of life. 

Ayurveda offers a beautiful holistic view of the universal through the individual and that is different from other health and healing systems. Ayurveda recognizes that ultimately all intelligence and true health flow from one absolute source (purusha). Which then manifests itself in the individual’s health through the law of nature, play of gunas, elements and doshas (prakruti).

Ayurveda medicine complements nature and a lifestyle close to nature’s rhythm by promoting harmony between inner and outer nature for a balanced living.

Why is the practice of Ayurveda important and how it goes hand in hand with Yoga?

What makes it different from other healing systems is that rather than focusing on individual symptoms of a disease, Ayurveda treatment focuses on establishing and maintaining the balance of life energies of the individual. A balanced body then heals itself and restores an individual’s unique state of balance and harmony. We just need to align our inner rhythm to the rhythm and cycles of nature and let the body do its work. 

This restored wholeness and harmony brings through the body, mind, and soul its sustainable cure for diseases and distress.

A state of balance and ease helps us to digest and assimilate all that life has to offer. Most importantly I think it sets a strong foundation for a yogic quest - self-knowing and eventually self-realisation. Which may be just a new beginning...

My journey to Ayurveda stemmed from a realization: despite the transformative effects of Tantra, Hatha, and Mantra Yoga practices on my physical body, I still experienced certain things that may be normal nowadays but certainly are not natural.

Implementing Ayurvedic principles into my daily life—whether through dietary choices, specific routines,  healthy sleep patterns, or managing my energy—has empowered me to navigate life with a deeper understanding of myself and others.

Ayurveda and Yoga have become guiding principles for living a conscious and purposeful life.

What is true health?

Welcome to the understanding of true health, where signs of well-being manifest through our attitude towards life, the state of our mind, and the vitality of our digestive fire - Agni. Achieving true health involves maintaining a balanced diet, incorporating daily movement through yoga practice, and managing our energy through pranayama and meditation. Reflecting on our relationships and the ebb and flow of day-to-day life becomes an opportunity and a vital aspect of this process.

The essence of true health is embodied in being truthful in our words, actions, and service to others. This commitment brings joy, purpose, and a life free from suffering and disease.

As holistic beings, we recognize that true health is the harmonious interplay of body, energy, mind, and the connection to our soul.

Signs of true health: 

·    Clear mind, healthy glowing skin, clear melodious voice, clear, bright eyes

·    Feeling well

·    Regular and easy elimination of bowels, urine, sweat and tears

·    Even and balanced energy throughout the day without lows and highs

·    Calm and peaceful attitude

·    Restful and undisturbed sleep, waking up refreshed

·    Physical comfort and ease

·    Strong immunity

·    No symptoms of imbalance, with proper working senses, organs, digestion, and metabolism ​

If you find yourself experiencing imbalances such as indigestion, constipation, IBS, hair loss, low energy, menstrual discomfort, PMS, perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, skin problems, sleep and emotional difficulties, hormone imbalances, bad posture, spiritual disconnection or any other challenges, consider this as an invitation.

Come this way, and let's take a first step to restore YOU to your natural state of health.

Your holistically whole being awaits!
