It is a 10,000 year old Vedic healing science whose depth, beauty and efficacy is based in natural principles of the universe. Ayurveda is a guide in understanding relationship; to ourselves and the world around us. The principles of nature fits into all cultures and environments.
Ayurveda translates to “science knowledge or art of life”. As a Vedic healing science whose depth, beauty and efficacy is based in natural principles of the universe. Ayurveda is a guide in understanding and creating stronger relationships: to the elemental world around us as well as the elemental world within us, as the elements provide all functions within our body.
Each individual has unique combination of these five elements; space, air, fire, water, and earth. There isn’t an exact number system used to measure elemental ratio- it’s more of an art, where each person is seen as there own unique psychophysiological expression, this is there Prakruti. With time, environment, emotions, the current state of the doshas express as a Vikruti, a current state that is looking for balance. By observing and learning a person you can see how these elements between Prakruti and Vikruti interplay and express themselves and are used to articulate a person’s state of being and used to help guide them to learn how to get into alignment with there balance.
These elements are then expressed in 3 humors/doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Finding balance within the qualities of the elements we find alignment with diet, lifestyle and overall health and vitality throughout the seasons. Bringing a sense of peace and harmony to our relationship to self and the world around us.
