Ayurveda Wednesday: What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the ancient Indian “Science of Life” which was developed alongside Yoga thousands of years ago! It’s all about finding optimal health and balance in body, mind, and spirit. Ayurvedic medicine focuses on preventing health problems and healing the whole body, not just the symptoms or surface-level of a problem. While there’s much to study, a basic understanding of the underlying principles of Ayurveda can help us so much! It’s based on a system of 3 “doshas” or biological “types” which are a little bit similar to Myers Briggs or Enneagram types, except the doshas include your physical characteristics as well!
If you love yoga, pranayama, and Ayurveda, check out my online, on-demand yoga classes for all levels. I aim to include something for everyone in the class library. You’ll find some challenging flows, some trauma-informed classes, and some quick breath or meditation breaks for when you just need a moment. Most class videos will take place out in nature, my favorite place to be. I’m launching the online class library with six different classes of a variety of lengths and difficulty levels. Please let me know which ones you enjoy the most and if you have any requests for types of classes, poses, meditations, or anything! Subscribers will receive access to the complete library at all times, plus at least 1 new class uploaded every week (as time and Wifi allows; thank you in advance for giving me grace in case of glitches).
