Ayurveda, is “the science of life”, the oldest continually practiced health-care system in the world, (5000 years). The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are that the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and that nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind. Freedom from illness depends upon expanding our own awareness, bringing it into balance, and then extending that balance to the body. The Ayurvedic approach is about aligning with the cycles of nature rather than struggling or trying to force things to go your way. Nature functions with effortless ease, frictionlessly and spontaneously. When in balance, you naturally desire only that which nurtures your health and life. You flow in harmony with your body’s natural rhythms, getting restful sleep, feeding your senses with experiences, tastes, touch, aromas, sounds, and sights that uplift and nourish you.
