Ayurveda was discovered in India over 3,000 years ago. This approach to health was based off observation, practical experience and intuition in relation to what we eat and what specific lifestyles choices we make. Ayurveda is broken up into three different body types to help explain what types of foods and lifestyle choices are best for each unique individual. These body types are called doshas.
By understanding your Ayurvedic body type or dosha (primary dosha you were born with) and how each dosha works in rythem with nature (seasons and times of day), you can identify imbalance and create a more customized daily lifestyle regimen that will promote healing and balance of the mind, body and spirit.
I have been studying the benefits of Ayurveda for almost 4 years now and implementing an Ayurvedic lifestyle into my personal life as well as integrating it into my work with clients. During an intake session, each client is given a Dosha Constitution Quiz to help me learn a bit more about who you are and how your body and mind connect/work together. This allows me to customize recommendations and suggestions that are better suited for your body and mind type. Ayurveda has not only been fun to practice with clients, it has also been helping them to uncover deeper reasons for why they are feeling so poor and gives them more tools to use to help them feel better, stronger and at a faster pace than individual therapy or coaching alone.

Ayurveda is a holistic and natural approach to balancing the mind, body and spirit. It was developed in India and is the oldest medical science dating back over 3,000 years ago. Ayurveda believes that in order to maintain balance of the mind, body and spirit, one must live in harmony with nature. When we live balanced, we live well. When those balances become disrupted, we get sick.
