Harmonizing Your Unique Internal Environment with Nature & Deepening Your Overall Experience of Holistic Wellbeing
What is Ayurveda?
Ayur = life
Veda = wisdom
Ayurveda = “The Wisdom of Living” or “Knowledge of Life & Longevity”
Ayurveda is a timeless healing system that emerged from India thousands of years ago. It was the first, full-scale documented medical system in the world.
Its prevalence and use continues to rise across the world—and especially in the U.S.—as our culture begins to demand more proactive, natural, and preventative approaches to healthcare.
Ayurveda aims to restore each individual's own true nature by nourishing and cleansing the body, mind, and spirit.
How It Works
Each individual has a unique elemental make-up which guides recommended habits - Kapha meaning earth/water, Vata meaning air/space and Pitta for fire. We are optimally healthy when we are in-balance. Being out of balance causes symptoms initially and when prolonged can be the source of disease.
Our ayurvedic consultants assess and utilize the whole of your being, your environment and your sensory portals to help you with living in alignment with yourself and the world.
We use herbs, aromas, body work, oil treatments, marma points, and lifestyle modifications for treating dis-ease.
We help you understand the energetics of the elements inherent in life and your body (space, air, fire, water, earth) and how the qualities of these elements influence your being and health. We also teach you how to best nourish your senses throughout the changing seasons and live in harmony with yourself and the earth.
Healing and wellness deepen in powerful and sustainable ways when we become in tune with our food, digestion and our approaches to eating—both daily and seasonally.
