Ayurveda is a holistic system of medicine that originated in India over 5,000 years ago. It’s based on the belief that health is a state of balance between mind, body, and spirit. Ayurveda uses a variety of techniques, including diet, herbs, yoga, and meditation, to promote health and well-being.
Ayurveda and Yoga Therapy are closely related. Both systems of practice emphasise the importance of balance in the body and mind. Ayurveda provides a framework for understanding the individual’s unique constitution, or dosha, and Yoga Therapy provides a variety of tools that can be used to promote balance and well-being.
There are many benefits to combining Ayurveda and Yoga therapy, such as:
- Improved understanding of the individual’s unique constitution
- Increased awareness of the body’s natural healing processes
- Development of a personalised health plan
- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Improved physical and mental well-being
