“Ayurveda tries to offer the best biomechanical organisation to support each individual person’s physiology” Arjun Das

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing that has its origins in the Vedic culture of India. Ayurveda has been enjoying a major resurgence in both its native land and throughout the world. Recognising that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda is the art of daily living in harmony with nature.

Known in Sanskrit as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), these primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body. Each of us has a unique proportion of these three forces that shapes our nature(prakruti).
If Vata is dominant in our system, we tend to be thin, light, enthusiastic, energetic, and changeable.
If Pitta predominates in our nature, we tend to be intense, intelligent, and goal-oriented and we have a strong appetite for life.
When Kapha prevails, we tend to be easy-going, methodical, and nurturing. Although each of us has all three forces, most people have one or two elements that predominate.
When out of balance (vikruti), aggravations of our doshas occur. An Ayurvedic consultation is not a passive form of therapy, but asks the individual to take responsibility of their own daily living with tips and support from us using yoga, food charts, meditation, common kitchen herbs. Its also a fun and empowering consultation with nurturing and holistic therapies.
