What Is An Ayurvedic Lifestyle?

The science of Ayurveda, like the science of Yoga, was inspired and developed by the great masters and seers of ancient India. The origins of Ayurveda and Yoga have common roots and play a highly complementary role in spiritual evolution and the maintenance of physical wellbeing and vitality. Taking your Yoga off the mat and into your daily life is the basis of Ayurveda lifestyle principles.

But you don’t have to do Yoga!  Ayurveda is perhaps the oldest science of life - a system of making food medicine through cooking in the right ways for your constitution, imbalances, season of life;  cooking seasonally, and with kitchen herbs; acknowledging that the daily routines and eating habits that make up our everyday life, contribute directly to our health and wellbeing. Unlike most Western medicine, Ayurveda is not confined to the healing of disease in a superficial treatment of symptoms. Instead, it evaluates and treats the complete body-mind-spirit of the individual and goes to the root causes using elemental theory of balance.

An Ayurvedic Lifestyle is one that follows the principles set by your individual constitution – or Prakruti. Once this is determined, your Ayurvedic consultant can assess any imbalances (Vikriti) due to lifestyle, inherited weaknesses, season, stage of life, environment etc, and seek a lifestyle plan aligned to your specific and unique needs and life situation.
