Ayurveda, the science of life, prevention and longevity, is the oldest and most holistic and comprehensive medical system available. Its fundamentals can be found in the Vedas - the ancient Indian books of wisdom written over 5,000 years ago. Ayurveda uses the inherent principles of nature to help maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind, and spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.

 

Ayurveda uses simple principles to maintain your lifestyle on an emotional and physical level.  It is using basic common sense principles that go back to your grandma's home remedies we always heard about and through Ayurveda find out that they actually do work!

 

"The link between yoga and Ayurveda is prana, or the life-force.  Yoga is intelligence of prana seeking evolutionary transformations, while Ayurveda is its healing power, seeking to consolidate the life-systems it has already developed. Together, Ayurveda and yoga afford a complete discipline, one which can transform our existence from physical  to the deepest spiritual levels of our being with extraordinary vitality

and creativity on all levels."

-David Frawley Yoga and Ayurveda

 

 

Through daily routine (dinacharya), diet, herbs, oils, massage and yoga we can maintain our health and become more balanced in our mind and body.  This is prevented medicine where we live in harmony with nature.

 

 

We are all made up of the five elements: ether, air, water, fire, and earth. We can be one, two, and three of the doshas. At anytime one of the doshas may become unbalanced.

Vata - (ether + air) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vata types are usually tall and lanky, very creative, love to travel and meet new people. They are mentally and physically active.  When Vata is out of balance they feel ungrounded and scattered. Vata is also the fall time of year with wind, drying, and less sunlight.  Going with the season adding a diet that is more grounding helps to keep Vata under control along with yoga, meditation, and a daily routine.  A fall detox is also recommended with the change of season.

 

 

Pitta - (fire + water)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pitta types are usually medium build, very organized and have a strong personality to get things done.  When out of balance they tend to anger easily, be judgemental and show imbalances with skin irritations as well as inflammation problems.  Pitta is the summer season were they need a cooling diet, yoga postures, meditations, pranayama, nature walks and a daily routine that help keep the fiery Pitta under control. 

 

 

Kapha- (water + earth)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kapha types are usually have a bigger and thicker build and they are more "go with the flow" kind of people.  They usually like to get comfortable and don't usually like change.  Have to shake them up to get them going but once you do they keep going.  When out of balance there is weight gain and depression.  Kapha is the spring season were a detox is highly recommended along with a daily routine.
