It all begins with YOU
Understanding yourself deeply is the first step for living in harmony.
Ayurveda is an ancestral holistic health system. A global medicine of the body, mind and spirit recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization). A millennial practice that originated in India and is now practiced worldwide.
The word Ayurveda means science of life.
AYURVEDA IS THE ART OF OBSERVING HOW THE 5 ELEMENTS (ether, air, fire, water and earth) AFFECT US PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY.
WITH THE RIGHT DIET, LIFESTYLE & MINDSET (FOR YOU), YOU CAN CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT & DESERVE!
By nature, human beings seek homeostasis (state of equilibrium) which is constantly modified by our way of living and our environment. The ultimate goal of Ayurveda is to bring the individual back to his/her state of equilibrium, on both the physical and emotional levels.
The Ayurvedic practitioner offers pragmatic solutions to regain balance and prevent the evolution of symptoms into diseases. The tools and advice offered by the practitioner will enable you to become autonomous in your approach to optimal health. You will discover that it's in the small daily habits that you create the biggest and most lasting transformation and shifts in your health and well-being.
Ayurveda believes in a gentle approach to health.
What are the doshas?
Within the philosophy of Ayurveda are the underlying principles of the doshas. The doshas are biological energies found throughout the human body and mind. They govern all physical and mental processes and provide every living being with an individual blueprint for health and fulfillment.
The doshas derive from the Five Elements and their related properties. The five elements are air, ether (space), fire, water & earth.

The 3 fundamental principals of Ayurveda
HOW, more than WHAT we digest is everything in Ayurveda. How we digest our food, our emotions, our thoughts etc…
The Prana is our life energy pulsing through our body; oxygen giving us the push to move us forward and uplift our moods. Without prana, there is no life.
Ojas is like a precious nectar protecting our being. We are born with a finite quantity of ojas and it assures and maintains good immunity when we live a balanced life style.
