What Is Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a system of holistic medicine that encompasses the entire universe; nature, the body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda is a sanskrit word that translates to the “science of life”, ayur meaning life and veda meaning knowledge or science.

This ancient science guides us on how to live in harmony with nature and with our own specific human nature.

Within nature, there are 5 elements (Space, Air, Fire, Water, Earth) that compose everything in the universe, including the human body.

In order to live in harmony with nature, ayurveda guides you to tune in and becomes aware of yourself. We each have a unique constitution that matches up with different aspects of nature, in ayurveda there are three constitutional types:

  • Vata: likened to winter – cold and dry. Your nervous system and body are dominated by air.
  • Pitta: likened to summer – hot, fiery, competitive and driven.
  • Kapha: likened to spring – retaining water, easy going, heavier set, mellow.

Through a wide variety of holistic and preventative actions and treatments, Ayurveda brings your body and mind back to its true, natural alignment. To live in peace with minimal – no suffering and radiate love.

    – a choiceless choice.
