WHAT IT IS
Ayurveda is an ancient medical and healing system from India that translates from Sanskrit to “the science of life.” It is based around the core concept of balance throughout the body and its systems. While nutrition is a key pillar of Ayurveda, it also incorporates herbal treatments, self- and body-care routines and rituals, lifestyle guidance, pranayama and more. While Ayurveda is strongly rooted in nutrition, its other important extensions integrate all aspects of life.

Ayurveda is a journey, versus a singular destination. It is about discovering and honoring your true self, feeding and caring for your body to achieve and maintain optimal balance. You may also find that in addition to knowing yourself better, you come to understand others more from a place of deeper compassion. Ayurveda is thoroughly healing and nourishing, from the inside out, often helping to improve sleep, vitality, mindfulness, and overall wellbeing.
