Ayurveda, A Life of Balance

Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old holistic system of health and healing in India, is closely related to yoga. It is concerned with maintaining wellness by balancing the body through daily routine and diet. According to Ayurveda, each of us is born with a unique constitution. The five elements come together to create three basic constitutional types, called doshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

By discovering your constitutional type you can develop a holistic wellness regime tailored to your dosha. Discover your dosha by using our Dosha Imbalances Checklist.

Your Ayurvedic daily wellness routine might include:

  • Wake up
  • Scrape the tongue
  • Dry brush the body
  • Bathe
  • Massage the body with oil
  • Practice yoga and meditation
