Ayurveda and yoga are ancient Indian practices and sister sciences that help us to achieve physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
Ayurveda is a holistic and preventative healing approach that uses diet, herbs, exercise and lifestyle practices to restore our balance and remove ama (toxins) from our body. Ayurveda recognises that we have a unique Prakruti or doshic body-mind constitution (Vata, Pitta and Kapha or a combination) that determines our physical appearance, thought patterns and behaviours.
Ayurveda regards yoga as the most important form of exercise due to its ability to balance the physical body, create a flow of energy to help direct our attention within, and treat various diseases (Frawley, 2013).*
