– Ashtanga Hridayam

Ayurveda is a traditional Indian system of medicine. It aims to preserve health and wellness by keeping the mind, body, and spirit in balance.



According to Ayurvedic theory, everyone is made of a combination of five elements: air, water, fire, earth, and space. These elements combine in the body to form three energies or life forces, called doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Although there is a unique mix of the three doshas, one dosha is usually the most influential in each person.

In Ayurveda, the balance of a person’s doshas is thought to explain some of his or her individual differences and the likelihood of illness. An imbalanced dosha is believed to interrupt the natural flow of vital energy or prana.
