Ayurvedic Consultation and Classes

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vital while realizing their full human potential. Providing guidelines on ideal daily and seasonal routines, diet, behavior and the proper use of our senses, Ayurveda reminds us that health is the balanced and dynamic integration between our environment, body, mind, and spirit.

 

Recognizing that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments: movement, transformation, and structure.  Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature.
