Ayurveda is a sister science to yoga. It goes back 10,000 years, when it was an oral tradition to over 5,000 years when it became a written science. Ayurveda recognizes three forms of pranic or life energy as the basis for health and disease for all people.
These are the three doshas or biological humors of Vata (air), Pitta (fire) and Kapha (water). Both yoga and Ayurveda reflect the Vedic idea that we must live according to our unique nature and its particular capacities. Yoga can be done in harmony with one’s individual constitution both physically and psychologically. The type of asana and meditation good for one person may prove harmful to another. Just as we should eat right for our type, we should also exercise right for our type. There is no need to know your type to join this class. Learn how the differing energies and asanas work together to balance your type.
