The art of living a balanced life
Ayurveda, also known as the Science (Veda) of Life (Ayus), is said to have its origin in India at least 5000 years ago – and it is more than ever relevant today. More and more people are awakening to the wisdom of Ayurveda, which is both practical and profound.
The principles of Ayurveda allow us to see the world through new eyes – eyes that notice the effect of foods, lifestyle, the environment and thoughts on our bodies and health. The wisdom of Ayurveda teaches us how to live our daily lives in rhythm with that of nature.
In tune with our environment
Living with Ayurveda gives us a new understanding and appreciation of the world around us. We experience food not as an abstract concept of nutritional value, but as an experience based on taste, texture and its effect on our body and mind.
Everything that we think, experience, ingest and do affects us according to its qualities – be it nourishing or depleting, warming or cooling, bitter or sweet. The world thus becomes a playground of opposites, which can be skilfully used to bring us to a sense of balance within ourselves and our environment, leading us to greater health, vitality and contentment.
