What is Ayurveda?
The word Ayurveda translates as the science of life in all aspects: physical, emotional & spiritual. It is a 5,000
year old holistic medicine that offers timeless remedies to the stresses & illnesses of modern day living. At the heart
of Ayurveda is the individual's constitution...that is, the understanding that everyone is made up of a unique combination of the
three attributes of creation: vata, pitta and kapha. The Ayurvedic constitution influences the physical body structure as well
as functional patterns such as appetite, sleep, reaction to stress, concentration & much more. When a person knows
their constitution, they can determine what the best diet, herbs, exercise & daily routine is for them. In creating a lifestyle
that meets one's unique needs, one experiences optimal health, mental endurance & overall well-being.
