Ayurveda and Yoga helps you to find your True Nature to control the mind and intellect and lead a healthy life. Ayurveda is the science of life, and goes deeper into prescribing life regimens, food and diet, herbs, and an understanding of our specific mental and physical propensities, or constitution. By bringing into balance the 5 elements in the body and mind we regain health.

Health is Wealth Health is a law of nature. It is our natural birthright. Ayurveda and Yoga, the ancient sciences of medicine and right living, declare the origin of disease comes from three flaws: forgetting our True Nature as Spirit, the misuse of intellect, and excessive movement of the mind.

Yoga works directly with the flow of prana (energy, life force) and cleans the blockages in our energy channels. Yoga asanas (poses) and pranayama (breathing exercises) help purifying the energy body and bring about vitality.

Ayurveda and Yoga
Ayurveda and Yoga is the most important preventative system of medicine. Ayurveda and Yoga calms the mind and breath, helps us to not identify too much with the drama of life which generates emotions such as fear or anger, and helps us to conserve energy and elongate lifespan.

Constitutional assesment

Your inner nature is called your constitution or prakruti.  They are referred to as doshas.  These three doshas govern our physical characteristics, physiological functions and psychological tendencies.  When the doshas are out of balance, disease occurs.  When we live according to our constituition and in harmony with the rhythm of Nature we become healthy and balanced and can live up to our highest potential.

Downloadable constitutional assesment form.
