Ayurveda is an ancient science of self-healing from India. The philosophy of Ayurveda includes recommendations on diet, lifestyle, exercise, rest, meditation, as well as cleansing and purification techniques and herbal remedies. It is a healing philosophy requiring that each of us take responsibility for our own daily choices.

Rather than relying only on external substances to restore health, Ayurvedic traditions outline a balanced and conscious way of living which results in improved health and longevity. Some facets of the philosophy include:

Importance of being in tune with Nature
Breathing Techniques
Dietary Guidelines
Seasonal Routines
Cleansing and Purification
Meditation, Rest and Relaxation
