What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a system of healing with roots in ancient India. A medical science with the purpose to heal and to maintain the quality and longevity of life, Ayurveda — ayur (life), veda (knowledge) — translates to knowledge of life. It focuses on diet and lifestyle to prevent disease.
Both yoga and Ayurveda have the common goal of alleviating suffering to have a more joyful, healthy life. Ayurveda focuses on preventing and treating disease. Yoga focuses on disciplines related to the mind and senses.
Ayurvedic practices nourish the body so that we may develop a more productive yoga practice. With consistent practice of Ayurveda techniques, the body will become stronger and healthier. When the body feels free, the mind begins to become more clear.
