As the spread of Indian wellbeing knowledge continues to migrate around the world, we stand on the brink of a revolution in health. Ayurveda, India’s ancient science of holistic health care, is tipped by industry experts to be the wellbeing phenomenon of this decade.
An extensive field of knowledge devoted to personalized care according to your individual Ayurvedic dosha type, Ayurveda opens the door to a new level of depth in your yoga practice.
The basis of Ayurvedic medicine
Yoga and Ayurveda are twin sciences based on an original Vedic system of evolutionary theory called Samkhya. The theory explains how pure Spirit (or Consciousness) evolved into the objects of our material world, which all share a basis in the five elements: ether, air, fire, water, and earth.
Some Ayurvedic medicine and herbs
These five elements form the basis of the Tantric theories of the chakras that run through the Hatha Yoga system, as well as the basis of Ayurvedic medicine, which carefully analyzes the individual to give you the health treatments and lifestyle practices most suitable for you.
Ayurveda to revolutionize your yoga practice
Knowledge of your personal Ayurvedic type can seriously revolutionize your yoga practice, giving you the tools to pacify your own particular Ayurvedic dosha imbalance.

Ayurvedic doctors are equipped with years of in-depth scriptural training to enable them to assess the balance of Vata dosha (ether and air elements), Pitta dosha (fire and water elements), and Kapha dosha (water and earth elements) within each individual.
