What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda literally means "the knowledge and wisdom of life". This 5,000 year old healing modality has been practised continuously since its inception and has as much relevance in today's modern society as it did in ancient times.
At the time of our conception, our unique constitution is determined. This constitution is based on a combination of the five elements of air, ether (space), fire, water and earth. When we live our lives in a balanced manner we can maintain a state of health, but we live in a world that can put a large amount of stress on us, which can cause us to move into an unhealthy and unbalanced state. Ayurveda provides us with the tools to help bring our body, mind and spirit back to a state of balance.
