What is Ayurveda?
So many of us feel stressed and fatigued by the fast pace of modern life.
We feel anxious that we aren’t living the life we truly want to live. Depressed because we don’t know how to relax
or reconnect with our bodies. Worried because we feel overwhelmed by choice.
Ayurveda, literally meaning the ‘knowledge’ or science of life, helps the body to heal itself through a deep sense of self-awareness to overcome the challenges of contemporary life.
The traditional healing system of India and Sri Lanka dating back over 5000 years, it is a complete philosophy encompassing health, psychology, sexuality, medicine, lifestyle, yoga, relationships, nature and daily rituals.
The principles of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is based on the philosophy that our bodies are a microcosm of the universe, where everything is ‘one’.
According to Ayurvedic principles, disease is the natural result of living out of harmony with our elemental nature and constitution.
By helping us to understand our environment, the laws of the universe, our elemental nature and our own unique constitution, Ayurveda helps us to make choices that nourish and balance our skin, body, mind and soul.
This ancient science of wellness tried and tested though millennia, Ayurveda is perfectly suited for our modern lifestyles.
IT IS A WAY OF LIFE.
What are Doshas?
elements existing in nature: space, air, fire, water and earth.
These elements combine to form the three doshas: vata, pitta and kapha. On the most fundamental level, pitta is our metabolism, kapha is our structure, and vata is the mobility that brings action and life into creation. We are all a combination of these doshic energies. Without all three energies, we simply could not exist.
Your dosha is essentially your emotional tendencies, unique body type and genetic makeup. It helps guide your choices around food, exercise, rest and daily activities.
Usually, one dosha is predominant in every person. By finding out your dominant dosha, you can adapt your daily routine to maintain a balanced and healthy life.
Inspired by Ayurveda, Aika offers a customised range of holistic facial and body products and calming rituals based on each of the three doshas.
