Ayurveda

A 5000-year-old science for living optimally Ayurveda is the medical model for health developed in India thousands of years ago and continues to be practiced in India today supported by state sponsored and accredited Ayurvedic medical colleges and hospitals.

“Ayurveda examines the various ways in which people use the food they eat, the activities that they perform and other lifestyle factors that will encourage them to move back towards the center instead of further and further out of balance. “

Know Thyself

Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of self-awareness. Just as no two people have the same fingerprint, Ayurveda believes that everyone is an individual each composed of a unique constitutional blueprint. The food we eat, the lifestyle we keep, the exercise we do and the stress we live with all affects how we feel. Ayurveda teaches us to recognize and understand who we are in order to make the best choices for ourselves on how to live optimally in our mind/body and emotions.

Yoga
Yoga is a Sanskrit word which means union

Union refers to the proper integration of body, mind and spirit to unfold our higher potential in life
Dr. David Frawley

You record the history of your day in the geography of your body. Yoga practice enables you to be aware of how you react to life on all levels. Neck tension, achy shoulders, lower back pain, tight hamstrings…all tell a story.

Yoga enables you to relieve your daily stress and reenergize at the same time. A fundamental difference between most forms of exercise and yoga is that while exercise can dissipate excess stress, it does not replenish your energy levels. Yoga will enable you to alleviate your daily stresses and leave you feeling energized, relaxed and clear headed, and alert.

Yoga strengthens and tones mind and body. It increases flexibility improves posture and concentration and promotes a sense of well-being and balance.

Heart Based meditation is easy to do and no experience is necessary. It is an energizing practice done in the comfort of your favorite armchair and only takes 20 minutes to do.

It is the perfect antidote for the stressed individual who finds it difficult to “slow down” and “calm their mind”.

Heart based meditation truly is spa time for the mind because the practice of letting-go is effortless and the silence that greets you affords a wonderful pause from the incessant ruminations of the active mind.
