Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic system of healing native to India. Ayurveda means the “science of life” and promotes harmony with nature and balance and well being in the body, mind and soul. According to Ayurveda, the universe is comprised of energy which manifests in the form of the five elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth. These elements combine to create the three doshas: Vata (the energy of movement), Pitta (the energy of transformation) and Kapha (the energy of stability). Each individual is made up of a unique combination of the doshas which determines their unique constitution. Ayurveda seeks to guide people back to a state of constitutional balance.
