What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda, which translates to “knowledge of life”, is an ancient body of wisdom that works with one’s unique elemental nature to create balance and wholeness. It is a lifestyle practice that can helps us heal ourselves through conscious living. The goal of Ayurveda is to both promote longevity by “adding years to life and life to years”. Although Ayurveda has existed for centuries, it’s tools are still both relevant and accessible today!
Ayurveda teaches us that health and wellbeing can be achieved through balancing ourselves with the rhythms of nature. It informs us of our unique elemental make-up, as well as the specific diet and lifestyle we can follow to stay balanced. With this highly individualized practice, we can better understand our illnesses and ailments, learn how to prevent them, and treat them naturally.
Earth. Water. Fire. Air. Space. Ayurveda acknowledges that each and every one of us has our own unique combination of those elements. We call that our constitution, or prakriti. Our environment and the foods we eat are made up of those same elements too. This intermingling disco of elements in combination with poor lifestyle choices is exactly how imbalance is created. To put it simply, what is going on outside the body is reflected in our bodies and minds to some degree.
