The Path to Optimal Wellness 

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I wish there was a resource for optimal health, having a meaningful and life of purpose, and living with a sense of peace, contentment, and joy?”  Join us on our wellness journey on Wednesdays!

The journey to optimal health starts by syncing up with our true nature, honoring and developing our strengths. We must embrace and grow from our challenges, redirect habitual tendencies, and offer authentic support where it is needed most. Ayurveda is the science of life–a holistic tradition that reaches well beyond physical health, healing, and the prevention of disease. Ayurveda is as relevant today as it was over 5,000 years ago.
This path is important. It reconnects us with ourselves, maintaining balance and health through stresses

and challenges. At its root, Ayurveda is a way of life that helps each of us claim and celebrate our capacity for a fully embodied sense of wellness.
The Sanskrit word for health is “Svastha.” It is the harmonious interaction of many components untied
to make a whole. This union is the mind, soul, and senses infused with an abiding sense of self, wellness, and bliss. While it may seem daunting to achieve this, Ayurveda provides a wealth of functional and insightful tools that can be used to anchor us in the present moment throughout the chaos. It can help us determine the root of our suffering and place us on track to reclaim our optimal health.

Nutrition and Lifestyle: Unlock Your Human Potential

Our culture’s ideology of the human body is superficial. It influences how we feel about our personal body type, causing a misunderstanding of what our bodies really need to thrive. Ultimately, this affects our self-esteem and our perception of self.

Along with digestion, unhealthy or irregular dietary habits, unmanaged and accumulated stress, unsupportive relationships, inactive lifestyles, and environmental toxins can challenge your body’s ability to digest food properly. A weak digestive system results in the accumulation of ama, or toxins, that cause imbalance, disease, and premature aging. Your digestion is a true reflection of your mental-emotional-physical state of balance or imbalance. A few signs of a stressed digestive system and accumulation of toxins are fatigue and lack of motivation, mental fogginess and forgetfulness, recurring infections and illnesses, and weight gain.

The Ayurvedic approach to nutrition and lifestyle is unique to each person. You will learn to have a new relationship with your body through a journey toward a balanced lifestyle and overall health.

Ayurveda Life Styles: Bring Rhythm Back into Your Life with Dinacharya 

Ayurveda embraces each person as an individual. Every person is born with a blueprint (constitution) for optimal health and wellness. It is our lifestyles that either keep the balance or allow it to fall out of balance, creating illness and disease. Your personal constitution defines who you are. No two constitutions are exactly alike.

Ayurveda reaches far beyond the area of physical health, healing, and the prevention of disease, but can help each of us claim our authentic selves and align with our true nature. Through Ayurveda, we create awareness of body, mind, and spirit to develop our strengths, refine our needs, surface our challenges, redirect harmful tendencies, and offer genuine support wherever it is needed so that we can find balance in stressful times. Take me to the Full Event Description… To Register.

Exercise: Less Pain and More Gain

Exercise has been an important part of the Ayurvedic routine for thousands of years but it is looked very different. Today exercise focuses on rigorous routines, with exhausting results. It has become a modern fad, not suitable for optimal wellness. According to Ayurveda, exercise gets rid of heaviness and stiffness of the body, because it burns digestive impurities and toxins (ama) this creates more flexibility, lightness, smoothness and ease of life.

But too much exercise can be damaging. It can lead to fatigue, lack of luster and integrity in the skin and face, aggravate Pitta and Vata (two of the three identification types of Ayurveda), and strain on physical body, respiratory and cardiovascular systems can result from too much exercise. Modern research confirms that free radicals cause damage our body from too much exercise. Excess free radicals have been linked to over 80% of all degenerative disease and premature aging.

Other benefits include enhanced ability to work, better endurance and brings shape to our body. It pacifies all body types (three doshas) and creates balance for the body type and in each season. It enhances the digestion, metabolism, and if done appropriately detoxifies and cleanses impurities from the tissues. Exercise strengthens immunity, in turn reducing or eliminating   fatigue, stop early aging, and helps us to maintain a optimal weight.

Ayurveda teaches us a well-rounded life with routine, individually focused practices, complete approach to healing and health, and is spiritual in nature. These balance out our busy lives. Ayurvedic philosophy embraces the concept that coming back to balance must focus on levels: physical, mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual. Let’s explore the natural ways to care for ourselves and promotes true health.
