Why is Ayurveda so powerful?

Ayurveda is an ancient science that recognises that everything outside of us affects what goes on inside. The food we eat, the herbs or supplements we take, what we drink, the seasons of the year, the environment around us, even what type of exercise we do and therapies we receive, all have a particular type of impact on our body, mind and emotions. As we understand ourselves better, we notice how our health, relationships and quality of life all improve.  

According to the healing science of Ayurveda, every living and non-living thing in the universe is made up of a combination of 5 basic elements—space, air, fire, water and earth. Our human body is also made up of these 5 elements in various compositions. They manifest in the human body as 3 basic principles or subtle energies known as doshas: vata, pitta and kapha.
space + air combine to form vata
fire + water combine to form pitta
water + earth combine to form kapha

This explains why everything outside us can affect us. 
Knowledge of the 5 elements and the 3 doshas is essential in order to rebalance and lead Ayurvedically happy and healthy lives. When our constitution (doshas) are in balance, we are able to function at our highest level as human beings. By understanding the positive and negative aspects of each element and dosha, we can design our life in such a way that we can live the life we want to—healthy, happy and fulfilled.

Thank you so much to you and Bob and Imogen and of course Keith {Dru Yoga & Ayurveda Cookery workshop}.  I am looking forward to trying some of his recipes from his book.

I thought it was a great course. A lovely combination, especially as Keith related the doshas to different personality and behavioural traits, and that these were linked with the relevant balancing yoga sequence in the afternoon.

Keith was such an inspiration with his delicious dishes and I felt very nourished by our shared meal. I especially enjoyed the creamed carrots and will definitely be making it for my family. I was also reminded that it's not just about the cooking and that putting love and intent into it is what makes a real difference.

Thanks so much for such a wonderful weekend. I really enjoyed connecting with you all again.
 
I know a lot about the topics discussed but hearing them spoken about with such passion by a group of experts really helped to clarify a number of points I was not completely sure about. I found it very motivating and gave me a greater understanding of why I need to do certain practices. I do most of the practices already so I don't really need to add anything. I would like to know more about the herbs that might be useful for me specifically but I would need a personal consultation for that. 
 
Thank you for such an information packed and motivating weekend. I am looking forward to looking all the materials in the course.
