Prevention & Health
“Yoga and Ayurveda show us the way but we must do the work in our daily lives” David Frawley 

PAIN WHICH HAS NOT YET COME IS AVOIDABLE

Ayurveda "The Science of Life and Prevention" starts here "What you eat is not as important as where you shop".
I learnt so much during my 3 years study to become an Ayurveda consultant I have educated myself to be closer to nature and to adapt my entire life in order to get in touch with my real self.
Yoga and Ayurveda are intrinsically linked to enable you to gain a peaceful mind in a healthy body.
I am so grateful for all the knowledge I have received from my generous teachers. I wish with all my heart to pass it on to all who need it. I see this as my Dharma, the life path I was looking for, Santosha contentment Om Santi Shanti Shanti!
Ayurveda is the Science of Self-Healing and becoming a healer is a blessing.   

YOGA SUTRA II.16 "HEYAM DUKHAM ANAGATAM" 

Ayurveda is based on the 5 elements

What is Ayurveda?

Our constitution is based on the 3 DOSHAS Vata Pitta Kapha. Each individual was born with a mix of the 3 Doshas V P K with a different percentage of each. These Doshas are based on the 5 elements called BHUTAS: ETHER, AIR, FIRE, WATER and EARTH - Doshas are the containers with the bhutas in it – they are our 3 cosmic energies Air (Vata) Fire (Pitta) and Water (Kapha).

PRAKRITI is like our DNA. It is our Constitution for life. They are called Doshas. They are unique to every individual because it has been given at our conception and even before, from our parents and ancestors. It explains why all factors are taken on board in Ayurveda from parents and seasons, to environments and even astrology. Ayurvedic Doctors were also Astrologers.

The planetary movements have been scientifically studied and related to our constitution in Ayurveda:
- VATA Gemini, Virgo, Libra, Capricorn and Aquarius (Mercury, Saturn, Venus (secondary), Rahu. 
- PITTA Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Scorpio (Mars, the Sun, Jupiter (secondary), Ketu
- KAPHA Taurus, Cancer, and Pisces (Moon, Venus (primary), Jupiter (primary) Saturn (secondary)

VIKRITI  it is looking for the unbalanced Doshas at the origin of problems and deterioration of health, for example, too much air in Pitta increases fire which dries intestines. The nature of the imbalance is defined by the observation of the 5 senses and studying the symptoms which include the mental and the psychological temperament and behaviour of the patient. These qualities are known as GUNAS (Satvic Rajavic Tamasic).

The aim of ayurveda is keeping a balance between the 3 DOSHAS. Ayurveda is the science of life for PREVENTION in order to avoid diseases in the long run. It requires a constant awareness of our physical and mental states.
