Ayurveda — Ayur means Life, Veda means science or knowledge — is the world’s oldest and most comprehensive system of natural health. Combined with yoga therapeutics, it offers the wisdom and techniques to attain heightened vitality.
Ayurveda is an important and high-impact component of my practice. I started studying this ancient healing science almost 30 years ago. I noticed immediately that it shifted me into a more relaxed and calm state. In the beginning I was moving like the wind — here, there and everywhere. When I uncovered my natural state, learned about the seasons of my life, and started putting some of the basic concepts to work, I started running my life instead of letting it run me.
According to Ayurveda, each individual is seen as an integral component of nature. Therefore, we must balance body, mind and spirit as they interact with the environment. Life’s daily challenges take us away from the present moment awareness that’s essential to our equilibrium.
There are three fundamental humors — called doshas — that control our inner and outer constitutions: movement, or Vatta (wind), transformation, or Pitta (fire), and structure, or Kapha (Earth). In Ayurveda the focus is on finding each person’s optimum state of balance, current imbalances, and what to do to get back to that natural state.
I am so appreciative of your advice and support. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to me. You are so helpful, wise and also so gentle. I have never experienced this in someone who was working with me around food/nutrition issues. Already, just five days after our consultation, I feel more grounded, clear and my gut has calmed down. Thank you. — R. J.
Rasayana: The Pathway to “Juiceyness”
As people age the fluid “juiceyness” of our bodies begins to dry. One of Ayurveda’s main goals is to maintain or regain this vital nectar, creating a sense of vitality, aliveness, inner joy and contentment. Ayurvedic practices can help you replenish and find the inner joy that comes from a healthy body and mind by realigning with nature’s rhythms through diet, appropriate movement, safe cleansing and reunion with spirit.
Your Ayurvedic Consultation
I use a variety of simple yet very effective Ayurvedic assessment techniques that help me uncover a unique plan to restore your balance. The techniques include tongue diagnosis and ayurvedic pulse assessment, along with a thorough interview and discussion of your symptoms, diet and lifestyle. A comprehensive, individualized program is then created utilizing tools of cleansing, rejuvenation and maintenance. Dietary guidelines and specialized body treatments are also recommended to help gain clarity and move toward a more peaceful and purpose-filled life.
