Yoga and Ayurveda
Ayurveda is a sister science to the knowledge of yoga. They both go hand in hand with each other. Most of us recognize that our health cannot be separated from what we think, say, do or eat. We are born with certain specific physical and mental conditions and we need to understand these to effectively progress in our life and relate to people and our environment. How do we make the best of our life?

Mantras and the Mind
Ayurveda, the “science of life,” is the traditional medicine of India. It is probably the oldest health care system in the world, with roots going back over 5,000 years into the Vedic era. It is called the “Mother of All Healing.” Ayurveda is one of the most comprehensive healing systems in the world, dealing integrally with body, mind and spirit.
Ayurveda is allied with the profound yogic view of life and consciousness. Yogis need to understand Ayurveda to keep themselves healthy on the path of Sadhana. Ayurvedic practitioners use integrally yogic methods to achieve healing of body/mind/spirit. Understanding how the mind works is key to our progress.
Ayurveda provides us with a system for understanding the energies and qualities that are set in motion by our daily living practices, so we can counteract or prevent the imbalances that cause disease. The principles can be applied in our daily life routine, according to our unique constitution and adapting to changing conditions such as time of the day, season, age and culture.
Ayurveda affords much extraordinary knowledge and many opportunities to inform our own lifestyle choices and enhance of our skills adding greater value to our lives.
