Ayurveda, a Sanskrit word meaning the “science of life”, is India’s 5000 year old medical system. It is often referred to as Yoga’s “Sister Science” as both are rooted in the ancient Vedic tradition. Ayurveda works using nutrition, lifestyle, herbal, and detoxification protocols specific to an individual’s unique constitution. The scope of Ayurveda also includes the practice of Yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques. We offer personal consultations and bodywork.
