What we're about

This is a group for anybody interrested in Ayurveda, Panchakarma, Yoga, Meditation, body-mind-spirit connection and anything else about living a balanced life. Looking for my community to connect with.

A·yur·ve·da (äyərˈvādə) Ayurveda, in Sanskrit, means "Science of Life". It is a 5000 year-old traditional system of holistic healing based on balance. It originated in the sub-continent of India and was meticulously documented in texts called "Vedas". We are all made up of elements that create health when well-balanced, and disease when imbalanced. As the name suggests, Ayurveda encompasses all aspects of our being to address underlying disease to help relieve symptoms, prevent or eradicate disease and achieve optimal health in our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual planes.. According to ayurveda, the five elements (space, air, fire, water, and earth) manifest in each of us in a unique way to give us our physical and mental qualities. These elements then combine into three constitutions, or doshas: vata, pitta, and kapha. Upon assessing a persons individual dosha (constitution), specific guidelines may be followed to achieve optimum health. Ayurveda’s goal is to help us understand how to help ourselves to re-balance and restore health. The practice: 1. Teaches a proactive approach to avoiding illness: fresh food, exercise, relaxation/stress reduction, and regular cleansing. 2. Is used to counter balance the qualities of illnesses that are already in the first stages of manifestation in the body. 3. Will treat conditions with diet, lifestyle, exercise, herbal remedies, energy flow and stress reduction techniques. Ayurveda takes many things into account: First your Dosha...then gender, age, location, seasons, climate, energy flow, etc. The unique combination of the three doshas in each individual has a specific influence on our physical, mental, and emotional tendencies. Determining which dosha(s) are dominant can help you to make the right diet and lifestyle choices that will maintain balance and promote health and well-being on all levels. Everyone can benefit from this practice.
