Ayurveda as Lifestyle Medicine
For all students, learn about Ayurveda’s key to achieving abundant health and vitality.
Ayurveda recognizes that each person is born with a unique physical, psychological and emotional constitution or prakruti. Through our daily relationships, practices, and the beliefs that shape them, our constitutions can become imbalanced, leading to disease.
Ayurveda’s key to achieving abundant health and vitality is to recognize our lack of harmony or vikruti in one or more of these areas. Then, under the guidance of an experienced practitioner, we take steps to restore our natural constitutional balance. Ayurveda doesn’t offer a “magic bullet” cure. This perennial science of living teaches us to accept our responsibility ‘to’ rather than ‘for’ our own physical, mental and emotional condition.
Simply put, positive change is the result of conscious, consistent practice. The roadmap for wellness is Tri-Dosha, or ‘three constitutions’ theory, as expressed in nature and the individual. This profound, pervasive paradigm points to age and season- appropriate behaviors aligning us with the natural healing forces which create healthier, more vibrant versions of ourselves.
