Ayurda have taken ancient Ayurvedic principles and reimagined them for the present day – so you can find balance in a busy, modern life. Ayurveda means “the art of living wisely” or “the science of life and longevity”. It is a profound science of living that encompasses the whole of life and relates the individual to the universe and consider mind , body, and spirit together. It is a holistic system of healing in the truest sense.
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is timeless – it has existed for over 5000 years but yet it still applies to modern day life. Today it is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a natural health care system. The key to its longevity is because Ayurveda is logical. An early description given in the Charaka Samhita (the earliest Ayurvedic literature) written circa 150BCE-100CE says: “It is called Ayurveda because it tells us which substances, qualities and actions are life enhancing, and which are not.”
In general, Ayurveda teaches that if life is lived in accordance with prakruti, or basic body-mind constitution, then a natural youthfulness is maintained throughout life. According to Ayurveda, health is a perfect state of balance between the body’s three fundamental energies or doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) and an equally vital balance among body, mind and soul or consciousness. In working to create health, Ayurveda therefore takes into consideration all these different levels of life and how they are interconnected.
Ayurveda teaches us that we have a constitution, our own mix of the doshas, which is our individual psychobiological makeup. In modern terms we speak of this blueprint as our inherited genetic code, from ancient times Ayurveda has called it prakruti, a constant factor that does not change throughout life.
From the moment of conception, this individual constitution is created by the energies of Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These five elements combine into the three fundamental energies or doshas known as VATA, PITTA, KAPHA.
What are the Doshas?
- Vata is a moving force and is responsible for the body’s sensations including breathing and circulation. Vata needs Nourishment.
- Pitta represents metabolism. It governs digestion and the transformation of nutrients into useable forms. Pitta needs to be Cooled & Rebalanced.
- Kapha is about support. It gives physical and mental strength and stability. Kapha needs Stimulation.
