Yoga and Ayurveda are two closely related spiritual aspects of the mind body spirit connectivity as per the Vedic Tradition of India. The word Ayurveda, divided into two parts Ayu – means life, and Veda means science or knowledge. The science of Long Life – Ayurveda.
While Yoga is foremost a science of self-realization, with bodily benefits as well, Ayurveda is primarily a science of Self- healing aimed at relieving the dis-ease of mind and body. Both these aspects have developed and complimented each other.
At the heart of Ayurveda is the understanding of the five elements - Panch mahabut - Akash (Ether), Vayu (Air), Tej (Fire), Jala (Water) and Prithvi (Earth). Recognizing that human beings are part of nature, Ayurveda describes three fundamental energies that govern our inner and outer environments: movement, transformation, and structure. Known in Sanskrit as Vata (Wind), Pitta (Fire), and Kapha (Earth), these primary forces are responsible for the characteristics of our mind and body.
Ayurveda recommends asana as one of the three most important approaches to well- being – Dincharya(daily activities), Aharyojna(Nutritional planning) and Yoga Asana. Yoga asana have tremendous therapeutic impact on the body and mind – on our physical structure, on our mental framework, our vital energy and creative intelligence.
At Dhyana Yoga center, our focus, through our classes is to increase the understanding of the Ayurveda concepts and how asana and the path of Yoga can be utilized to reconnect with a healthier happier self.
