Ayurveda is a system of medicine with historical roots in India. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences, so it is a natural progression when you have a yoga practice to then start asking about how Ayurveda can also help your well being.
Ayurveda is a natural therapy or alternative medicine. In countries beyond India, Ayurveda therapies and practices have been integrated in general wellness applications and in some cases in medical use.
The main classical Ayurveda texts begin with accounts of the transmission of medical knowledge from the Gods to sages, and then to physicians. Ayurveda therapies have varied and evolved over more than two millennia. Ayurveda Therapies are typically based on plants, essential oils, complex herbal compounds, minerals and metal substances Ayurveda treatises describe three elemental doṣas vāta, pitta and kapha, and state that equality (sāmyatva) of the doṣas results in health, while inequality (viṣamatva) results in disease.
