Known as the traditional medicinal system from ancient India, Ayurveda has been healing humanity through lifestyle modifications and herbal medicine for over 6000 years. Ayur-veda, translates as the knowledge of life, suggests that our lifestyle be examined in order to identify imbalances and their causes. This includes diet, sleep patterns, and using yoga practices to improve our life.
Along with yoga, meditation is a key pillar of Ayurveda. Meditation is a way of calming the mind, so you are not caught up in its endless chatter. In meditation the mind is clear, relaxed and inwardly focused. Ideal time to meditate is after yoga or in the morning upon arising.
