Ayurveda is an ancient natural wellness system from India. More than 5,000 years old, this time-honored tradition of healing awakens your body’s innate intelligence and repair mechanisms. On a practical level, Ayurveda—the “science of life”—helps you find balance through simple daily rituals, personalized diet planning, and powerful herbs. It’s all about you and your own unique needs.
WHAT ARE DOSHAS?
Doshas are the energetic patterns that pulsate throughout your nervous system. Each dosha has a unique pattern that identifies your prakruti*. Your doshas are made up from the five elements: ether, air, fire, water and earth. The elements constitute vata, pitta and kapha doshas. Your pulse will identify your ayurvedic constitution as well as taking a dosha test that will reveal it too. Each application will reveal your dosha constitution.
Knowing your dosha makes it easy to find the best foods, exercise, and lifestyle practices to support your needs.
(For the purposes of this site, we will use doshas as a pathway to understand how we operate pyscologically and physically look. In traditional applications, doshas are used to help us keep our health in balance. We will use doshas as a guide and key to how we interact in the world.)
