Ayurveda means "knowledge of life and longevity"

This is a medical system that views the human being in a holistic way as a combination of body, mind, and soul. It includes natural self-healing methods such as diet, lifestyle, physical activity, rest, meditation, breathing exercises, medicinal herbs, aromatherapy, color therapy, sound therapy, as well as cleansing and rejuvenating therapies.
According to Ayurveda, each of us is a unique combination of the elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, which combine to create Doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, which govern physical and mental processes.

I warmly invite you to learn this extraordinary knowledge that you can use in your daily life to enjoy health, happiness, and excellent well-being.
