What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health system from the Indian subcontinent over 5000 years old. It considers everything in the patient's life. The teachings are based on thousands of years of experience and observation of body, mind, and soul or spirit interacting with nature.
The main goal is to promote health instead of just fighting diseases.
Ayurveda considers the human body as divine and as a part of the whole and is seen as a small image of the big universe - a microcosm of the macrocosm (universe).
The 5 elements play an essential role, and they are constantly worked with. We find these elements all around us and in every living being and of course, in ourselves.
This point of view makes us realize that everything is wonderfully connected and already perfect in itself.
The 5 elements are
Every person on this planet has a unique distribution of these elements. To stay healthy and full of vitality, we strive to keep the elements in balance. We do this with the right daily routine, rituals, the right foods and much more. All wholly tailored to the type.
To simplify it, the elements are divided into body and mind types, called the doshas Vata, Pitta, and Kapha! With the help of a test, we can determine which dosha is most likely to be predominant. This helps us to identify which recommendations we may follow. It is essential to know that there can always be different results and that we always have all 3 Doshas and, therefore all elements in us, just differently pronounced.
The Doshas are
Vata dominated by air and ether
Pitta dominated by fire and a little bit of water
Kapha dominated by earth and water
There are 2 different ways of looking at it in Ayurveda, the dosha given from birth (genes) and the one that is out of balance now. We work mainly with the ACTUAL state.
Individuality is, therefore, one of the essential elements in Ayurveda. We use uniquely adapted recommendations for each client, always with the main goal of bringing back their ecological balance.
When you get to know your body-mind type, you will feel more connected to your body and the whole.
When we learn to live in harmony with the elements and the seasons, we can feel the natural connection of everything. In such a state, everything can flow much better again.
You find your rhythm and flow again!
No Ayurveda without Yoga, because these two are sisters!
Yoga means in its origin nothing else than unity or togetherness. This mindset gives life becomes more relaxed and worth living.
Of course, there will still be a bad day, but we now know how to deal with it and guide ourselves back in the right direction. Ayurveda is a self-help technique! If we know the magic tools (and then apply them, of course), we can face any challenge with joy!
