What is Ayurveda?
If yoga is the pathway to transformation, Ayurveda gives us the formula for healing. It aims to rebalance, reinvigorate and re-energise you.
Ayurveda is a natural medicine system born out of India, meaning ‘The Wisdom of Life’. It seeks to heal, nourish and satisfy your mind, body and spirit with diet and lifestyle modifications.
It follows these fundamental principles:
Everyone is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all solution to a health and wellbeing.
It is important to tune into our true nature and work in harmony with our bodies natural rhythm.
If we increase our digestive potency we improve our overall health and vitality.
How I use Ayurveda
On the mat
I first learned about Ayurveda when I was living in India. It has given me insight and understanding into my students as individuals that allows me to adapt my teaching according to their needs using the Doshas and elements as a framework for a tailored yoga practice.
In the kitchen
How we feed ourselves has an enormous impact on our wellbeing. I have a great passion for food and eating well, for pleasure and for health.
As the author of my own cookbook ‘Nourish’ I am invested in inspiring and educating people about how food can be used as therapy.
I can show you how small changes to your diet can add up to make a big difference.
In daily life
How we are in our daily life has great consequences. Even if we can have the best of intentions, sometimes we’re just not sure what it is that we need to function optimally. Beyond our yoga practice and what we put on our plate, embracing new habits and modify old ones, in a way that is appropriate for us as individuals, can be nothing short of revolutionary.
I can help you make introduce little lifestyle modifications that are realistic and achievable which add up to happier, healthier, more grounded you.
