what is ayurveda?

Ayurveda - “the science of life” - offers a rich and dynamic body of knowledge that provides comprehensive disease management and supports holistic wellbeing on a deep level. With its roots dating back over five thousand years to India, Ayurveda is distinct in that it focuses on harmonizing the unique constitution (“dosha”) of an individual with the natural rhythms of our world. Utilizing nutrition, lifestyle, herbal medicines and time-tested therapies, Ayurveda brings the elements back into balance within the body to create holistic wellbeing. While long practiced in Eastern medicine, Ayurveda is now one of the fastest growing complementary health care practices available in the West.

The basic premise of Ayurveda is that we each have a unique constitution that can move out of balance with the flow of life, change of seasons, choices we make, genetic makeup, and many other environmental factors that are beyond our control. Furthermore, each constitution is prone to specific types of imbalances, which can result in disease. Ayurveda gives us the power to know our constitution and — with that knowledge — to restore balance, reduce or eliminate toxins, heal the mind, and grow the spirit.

Ayurvedic Health Counseling is a process that aims to help individuals heal and thrive over time. Our imbalances grew gradually and, as such, healing our lives takes time. Bhakti Yoga DC has partnered with our very own Kirsten Ahern, RYT-500, Ayurvedic Health Counselor Intern with the California College of Ayurveda, and founder of KA Ayurveda - healing through holistic wellbeing - to offer Ayurvedic Health Counseling to our clients.
