Directly translated Ayurveda means ‘The Science of Life’. It's one of the oldest forms of healing the world has known with its origins dating back more than five thousand years and is a system of medicine and a philosophy for living in harmony with nature. We have lost touch with the natural rhythms and cycles of nature and with the creative act of living in harmony with these elements, there are, in fact, many critical elements that make Ayurveda more relevant to Western society at this point in time than ever before.
Ayurveda relieves stress and enables us to create health, wellbeing and balance. This is achieved in a structured way, using nutrition and a range of techniques, ancient ritual, ceremony, with daily practices underpinned by a philosophy of mindfulness towards ourselves and all life forms and to our planet.
It is our right to be healthy: we are born to be vibrant, creative living beings. We are born to be joyful and balanced. When we loose our connection to the wholeness of life, when we become distracted from the natural state of harmony and connectedness, then we become “dis-eased”.
