Bridging the gap between Ancient Medicine & Modern Science with Ayurveda
Known as the Science of Life, Ayurveda is an ancient Medical Discipline that derived from India over 5,000 years ago. In the Sanskrit language Ayur- translates to life or longevity, and Veda means science or sacred knowledge. The Vedas are some of the first texts discovered that were documented by ascetic sages called Rishis. These enlightened beings gifted us the knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda in these texts, and the information contained within has not only been validated by modern science today, but it also goes beyond the treatment of the whole person to include the spiritual evolution of the soul. Ayurveda is the Sister Science to traditional Yoga, one cannot be fully utilized without the other. Traditional Yoga is considered the Science of the Self, or the practice of self-realization through daily practices including the importance of meditation. The poses in Yoga were originally designed to allow practitioners to sustain the practice of meditation longer, not just maintain the health of the body. Where Yoga treats the mind of a person, Ayurveda treats the rest of the body. The combination of both treat the whole person holistically: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
