What is Ayurveda?
The Sanskrit term Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life”. Ayurveda is one of the oldest holistic healing systems, and the sister science to yoga.
Ayurveda looks at the five elements (ether, air, fire, water, and earth) and how they combine to create the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha). These doshas are present within and around us. Everything in the universe can be described in terms of the doshas. Ayurvedic treatment recognizes when doshas have become excessive or deficient, which can affect the mind, body, and emotions. Ayurveda applies the opposite qualities to return to balance.

Doshas are seen everywhere, including seasonal changes. As these doshas become more prevalent in the change of the seasons, imbalances can be found in the mind, body, emotions. Ayurveda recommends adjusting practices seasonally to remain in balance.
Dinacharya (Sanskrit for daily routine) is a concept in Ayurveda that looks at the cycles of nature and bases daily activities around these cycles. Ayurveda contends that routines help establish balance and that understanding daily cycles is useful for promoting health. In your Dinacharya consultation, you will work with your practitioner to develop your daily practices to bring balance to your life.
