What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the oldest-known system of medicine dating back over 5000 years, ultimately guiding us to a holistic way of life. As the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda not only aims to treat the root cause of illness but uniquely focuses on preventative healthcare as a lifestyle.
The wonderful teachings of Ayurveda can help us to maintain balance of our mind, body and emotional health through daily practices that are personalised to our individual mind-body type known as prakruti. Our prakruti is based on three bio-energetic forces called the doshas that are made of a combination of five elements, ether, air, fire, water and earth. The doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) work together to maintain regular mind-body functions, as well as influence our behaviours, habits, personality and physical appearance.
By becoming familiar with our dosha type, we can be empowered to choose the foods, lifestyle and natural medicines that promote optimal health, happiness and creative growth. What’s more, when we understand that we are connected to everything around us (also influenced by the doshas), it means that we can create balance by staying in the ebb and flow of the seasonal changes, our environment, our relationships further supporting our wellbeing.
