Ayurveda, the science of life
Ayurveda is the natural, traditional and holistic medicine system which originated thousands of years ago in India. Its recorded and living knowledge has been inspired by the wisdom of early Indian sages. It literally means 'science of life' and its science is based on unchanging natural laws which govern the movement of vital, life giving energy, both in nature and in the body.
This natural, safe, gentle and effective form of therapy and medical care is the oldest, continuously practiced medical system in the world. Ayurveda has been in continuous practice for over 5000 years, with an extensive history of traditional use and proven track record of safety and clinical effectiveness. It is the most well tested and thoroughly documented system of medicine on earth.
As the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda plays a key role in the Shanti Yoga health Institute curriculum. These ancient holistic practices teach the importance of cultivating the subtle life force, or prana, and how to find balance in the body, mind and spirit.
Ayurveda is a complete healing modality that deals with preventative health, health improvement, health maintenance and the treatment of disease. It teaches you how to care for your health at all levels of your being. It utilises herbal, dietary and lifestyle modifications to facilitate healing and wellbeing. Its speciality and strength lie in the individualised approach it offers, and it treats the individual by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of the disease, stimulating the body's natural tendency to heal itself.
Ayurveda which means the science of longevity is an ancient healing system from India. Refined and purified, your good food, thoughts and actions are metabolized into their properties, qualities, essence and waste. Nourishment benefits the cyclic and progressive formation of the next and previous property and the formation of Ojas (essence). The quality and quantity of nourishment and the structural quality and function improves microcirculation.
Every single individual benefits from personal understanding of this science.
