Here at Great Heart Yoga, we teach practices aimed at body-mind well-being! You’ve know about yoga, but do you know about Ayurveda?
Yoga and Ayurveda are both systems of wellness that originated in the ancient Indian Vedic system of knowledge. The word yoga means “union” or “to yoke” and refers to the union of the body-mind with Spirit, or the yoking of the small self to the Big Self. Yoga teaches practices aimed at spiritual growth as well as physical health. Ayurveda means the “knowledge or wisdom of life.” Ayurveda was developed specifically for optimizing physical health and promoting healing. Yoga and Ayurveda are comprehensive and holistic systems of well-being and have stood the tests of time. They are considered sister sciences/systems as they share the goals of optimal physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Combined together, Yoga and Ayurveda offer a powerful modality for promoting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
In Great Heart Yoga programs, you can expect to be introduced to the world of Ayurveda and learn how knowing Ayurveda will take you further on your yoga path.
