*Ayurvedic knowledge originated from the Vedic culture in ancient India more than 5,000 years ago and may be the oldest healing science. Ayurveda means the “Science of Life” and is called the “Mother of All Healing”. The principles of many of the natural healing systems now familiar in the West have their roots in Ayurveda, including Homeopathy and Polarity Therapy.
*Ayurveda places great emphasis on prevention and encourages the maintenance of health through close attention to balance in one’s life, right thinking, diet, lifestyle and the use of herbs. Knowledge of Ayurveda enables one to understand how to create this balance of body, mind and consciousness according to one’s own individual constitution and how to make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain this balance.
Each morning starts with meditation, pranayama (breathing), kriyas (cleansing techniques) and bandhas (body locks) to open your energy channels, purify, balance and revitalize the body and mind. Ancient yoga revolves around meditation as a means to liberate oneself the suffering of ignorance, to see clearly the ultimate reality and attain enlightenment or union with the divine. Without meditation as your guiding light you are just stretching on a piece of rubber.
Hatha is the root of all modern yoga and involves holding traditional poses for longer periods of time in order to achieve mindful body awareness and focus as well as correct alignment. Ha-tha means sun and moon and is meant to be a perfect balance of physical, mental and energetic elements to create a holistic practice.
