Ayurveda and yoga

What Is Ayurveda?

Ayurvedic medicine (“Ayurveda” for short) is one of the world’s oldest holistic (“whole-body”) healing systems. It was developed more than 3,000 years ago in India.

It’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. Its main goal is to promote good health, not fight disease. But treatments may be geared toward specific health problems.

it is also considered a form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).

Ayurveda and Your Life Energy

Ayurveda therapy explains that everything in the universe – dead or alive – is connected. If your mind, body, and spirit are in harmony with the universe, you have good health. When something disrupts this balance, you get sick. Among the things that can upset this balance are genetic or birth defects, injuries, climate and seasonal change, age, and emotions.

Those who practice Ayurveda believe every person is made of five basic elements found in the universe: space, air, fire, water, and earth.

These combine in the human body to form three life forces or energies, called doshas. They control how your body works. They are Vata dosha (space and air); Pitta dosha (fire and water); and Kapha dosha (water and earth).

Everyone inherits a unique mix of the three doshas. But one is usually stronger than the others. Each one controls a different body function. It’s believed that your chances of getting sick — and the health issues you develop — are linked to the balance of your doshas.

Vata Dosha

Those who practice Ayurveda believe this is the most powerful of all three doshas. It controls very basic body functions, like how cells divide. It also controls your mind, breathing, blood flow, heart function, and ability to get rid of waste through your intestines. Things that can disrupt it include eating again too soon after a meal, fear, grief, and staying up too late.If vata dosha is your main life force, you’re thought to be more likely to develop conditions like anxiety,asthma,heart disease,skin problems and rheumatoid arthritis

Pitta Dosha

This energy controls your digestion, (how well you break down foods), metabolism and certain hormones that are linked to your appetite.

Things that can disrupt it are eating sour or spicy foods and spending too much time in the sun.

If it’s your main life force, you’re thought to be more likely to develop conditions like Crohn’s disease, heart disease, hight blood pressure and infections.

Kapha Dosha

This life force controls muscle growth, body strength and stability,weight and your immune system.

You can disrupt it by sleeping during the day, eating too many sweet foods, and eating or drinking things that contain too much salt or water.

If it’s your main life energy, practitioners believe you may develop asthma and other breathing disorders, cancer, diabetics, nausea after eating, and obesity

Ayurveda Treatment study individual takes into account your unique physical and emotional makeup, your primary life force, and the balance between all three of these elements.

The goal of treatment is to cleanse your body of undigested food, which can stay in your body and lead to illness. The cleansing process—called “panchakarma”— is designed to reduce your symptoms and restore harmony and balance.

To achieve this, an Ayurvedic practitioner might rely on blood purification,massage , herbal oils, herbs, and enemas.

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN YOGA AND AYURVEDA Yoga and Ayurveda often go hand in hand, if you take a look at the Ayurveda retreats featured on this site you will quickly notice that yoga also features on many of the programmes, but what is it about the two that sees them paired together so often? Besides both originating in India many, many years ago, there are actually plenty of other ways in which the two disciplines bear similarities and complement each other. While each practice is distinctly different and has its own unique functions, the two also overlap in many ways which make them couple together so perfectly, here are just a few of them.

Same Origin

As already stated both Ayurveda and yoga originated in India, but more than that they also both stem from the same system of Vedic knowledge which dates back thousands of years. Born of the same ancient scriptures, it is to be expected that the two practices will have much in common, with the underlying principles and belief system behind them being the same.

Same Principles

The philosophy and methods behind yoga and Ayurveda are both similar, with the two systems both relying on natural means to achieve their aims. Both are based upon individuals being in tune with their own bodies and using natural methods to promote wellbeing. In Ayurveda you are required to identify your constitution type and then make lifestyle changes and/or undergo certain holistic treatments that will be able to achieve balance between the doshas (the internal energies that act within us all) and our environment. Meanwhile in yoga there is a similar focus on using natural methods, with yoga involving the physical movement and stretching of our bodies along with quietening the mind and being at one with the world around us to achieve its results. Ultimately, both focus on utilising the power of nature and being in tune with our own bodies and surroundings to see the best results. 

Same Goal

The goal of both practices is ultimately the same; they both wish to aid you in becoming a balanced and healthy individual. Both are holistic methods which see an individual as healthy when the mind, body, and spirit are all balanced and in harmony with the world around them. While the techniques they use may differ, both ultimately result in the same outcome, and in fact can be used to make each other more effective. Certain yoga poses are thought to impact the different doshas as well as aid digestion which is an important part of Ayurveda, meanwhile certain Ayurveda treatments such as warm oil massages make it easier to perform certain yoga poses. While both techniques alone promise great results, when the two are combined the sense of wellbeing you will feel will improve even more.

The best way to truly experience and understand the connection between yoga and Ayurveda is to try them both.
