Ayurveda is India's 5,000 year old Science of Life. It is the art of living in harmony with nature, and it explains the nature of everything in the universe. When we learn about Ayurvedic Principles, we learn about ourselves, how we tick. Also how we can be our healthiest and happiest at all times.
Ayurveda teaches us to live life in balance and it helps us to find exactly what that balance is for each one of us. We learn individual strategies for diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Since health is more than the physical, it is also mental, emotional, and spiritual. Ayurvedic teachings can be used to help us create and maintain healthy relationships. It can help us to better understand ourselves, and the people in our lives. We can work with our natural strengths to help balance each other out. We can stop trying to "change" others to fit our needs, and instead accept a person's characteristics as a part of their wholeness, and honor who they are.
Ayurvedic principles can be applied to our work and career, to help us find and live our dharma. They can help us with our family lives, in parenting, and to help resolve conflicts. Ayurveda is a lifestyle that shows us how to take care of ourselves, in a simple, practical, and loving way.
