An Ayurvedic Lifestyle
Ayurveda, the 5,000 year-old healing system founded in ancient India, is derived from the Sanskrit words 'ayus' meaning life and 'veda' meaning wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, offers a proven guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love and purpose.
It is a consciousness-based, holistic mind-body approach to health and healing
From the Ayurvedic perspective, human beings are not viewed as mere thinking physical machines, but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of the environment. Health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated.
Practical advice, strategies and tools you can use on a daily basis to benefit your health
Today, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illnesses. Our bodies and minds react to it by shifting out of balance, which ultimately creates physical challenges and emotional turbulence that impact our lives at home, at work, and at play. In time, we can find ourselves in toxic relationships and non-nourishing patterns of eating, sleeping, and digestion. The Ayurvedic Lifestyle programme will help you identify the imbalances in your life, teach you how to correct them, and help you develop a nurturing daily routine. You will also learn to release emotions in a healthy way so that they don’t build up in your physiology. Most importantly, as your stress is eliminated, your mind and body begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality and happiness.
Since 95% of chronic illness is due to lifestyle, incorporating ayurvedic practices into it helps us to achieve optimal health by addressing six key pillars of health
(sleep, nutrition, movement, meditation, self care and emotions)

One of the greatest harms we can do to our body is lack of movement which unfortunately is a rather familiar feature of a sedentary modern lifestyle. There are so many benefits of moving regularly and in particular, of starting or developing a yoga practice. Here I are some reasons as why it's good to move. Moving the body physically lights up the energy power from within, increasing energy and productivity, longevity and happiness. For increased stamina, strength and flexibility, increased muscle tone and bone health, co-ordination, blood circulation and oxygen supply to cells and tissues. For more restful, sound sleep. Balanced hormones, stress reduction, mood stability and lower incidence of depression as movement helps release brain chemicals (endorphins) that act as natural mood lifters and pain relievers. It also helps foster higher sense of well-being and self esteem. Movement is good for ideal weight distribution and management, decreases food cravings, blood sugar levels and risk of diabetes. It increases brain health, sharpening memory and lowering risk for dementia. It increases heart health, lowering risk for cardiovascular disease, decreasing inflammation and risk for age-related diseases.
There are several benefits of the proper amount and type of sleep you achieve. During deep sleep your body releases accumulated stress and physical toxins, balances hormones, strengthens the immune system and repairs and regenerates cells and tissues.
