Ayurveda is a form of traditional medicine originating in India. An ancient science that has taught us how to heal our body, mind & soul in order to live in balance with ourselves as with the outer world. Ayurveda “science of life” or Ayurvedic medicine, from the Sanskrit terms āyus (life) and veda (science, or knowledge) draws its sources from the Vedas, a set of sacred texts from ancient India.

Ayurvedic practices follow a holistic approach dating from the Vedic civilization and is still widely practiced in India & around the world. The purpose of Ayurveda is not only meant for healing, but is also crucial for treating illnesses, maintaining health & a path toward self-realisation.
