Meaning the “Science of Life”, this Ancient Indian practice dates back to over 5000 years ago. Ayurveda works on the belief that the universe is made up of five elements, consisting of space, air, fire, water and earth. When these five elements are integrated in the human body, they separate into three forms of energy (Doshas), known in Ayuverdic terms as Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Everyone is born with a unique combination of these three Doshas, usually one or two are more dominant than the others. Each of these Doshas controls different body functions, physical aspects, emotional aspects and characteristics. The Ayurveda principles work on preventing, eliminating, treating, illnesses and dysfunctions by re-establishing balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through diet, nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, relaxation and body cleansing.

Vata (elements of space and air):

Controls bodily functions connected with motion. Such as blood circulation, breathing and your heartbeat. When Vata is in balance in the body, one tends to feel inspired and invigorated. When unbalanced it can cause the person to feel a sense of fear and anxiety.

Pitta (elements of fire and water):

Controls the body's metabolic systems, such as digestion, nutrition, absorption, and temperature. When Pitta is in balance in the body, one tends to feel humble and intelligent. When unbalanced it can cause the person to feel a sense of anger.

Kapha (elements of water and earth):

Controls growth in the body. Supplying water to all body parts, moisturising the skin, and maintaining the immune system. When Kapha is in balance in the body, one feels love and forgiveness. When unbalanced it can cause the person to feel a sense of insecurity and jealousy.

Ayurveda is not just managing health, it is a way of life! It teaches us how to maintain optimal health and wellness by improving both our energy and awareness of how to live and preserve life.
