What is Ayurveda

According to the ancient 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

Everything outside of us affects what happens inside us

Bringing our doshas into balance enables us to function at our highest level has humah beings.

We are affected by everything around us

This is why everything outside of us can affect what goes on inside of us. We can be so affected by 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 have, have a particular type of impact on our body, mind and emotions.
