Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic healing system from India. Ayurveda means the science of life or the wisdom or knowledge of life. It is yoga’s sister science. Ayurveda is an approach to living in harmony with nature to achieve optimum health. It recognizes that we are part of nature.
The purpose of Ayurveda is to provide you with tools to create, maintain, and preserve vibrant health so you can live a long, healthy, and happy life. Its focus is on preventing the imbalances that lead to disease. For prevention as well as treatment, an individualized, multi-dimensional approach to healing is used. It respects the uniqueness of an individual and considers all dimensions of a person – spiritual, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, physical, familial, social, environmental, and universal.
Ayurveda offers natural ways of treating imbalances and promoting health. It empowers everyone to take responsibility for their health and well-being through establishing an Ayurvedic daily routine, getting proper nutrition, establishing healthy sleep rhythms, and living a positive and purposeful life.
