"Ayurveda is not a One-Size-Fits-All System"
Over the next four weeks I will be diving into a workshop where I will learn about the principles of Ayurveda, including: philosophies of Ayurveda, 3 functional constituents (3 dosha), physical components such as bones, blood and body tissues (7 dhatus), and waste products (3 malas).
As I learn more and more about this science of life, I will reflect upon what I discover each week! But before I get started, I wanted to post about my current understanding of the topic, so that I can track my growth!
So let's just start with a basic understanding of Ayurveda. Dating back to approximately 2000-5000 years ago, Ayurveda has stood the test of time. At the very base of it's principals is it's approach to reaching your own unique state of Balance between mind-body and soul. As you can imagine, it is not a one-size-fits-all system. For example, most people know that eating whole, unprocessed foods is going to help you achieve optimal health. Not many understand that while a plate of food can be healing and beneficial for one person, the same plate of food can be disastrous for another. In fact, Ayurvedic diet and wellness regimens focus completely on Your body, the season, geography etc-Your life in your surroundings!
Napa Valley, home of fine wines, and tourists who love fine wines (insert me). It's also incredibly breathtaking, and I am beyond jealous of those who call it home! We decided to take some time to explore the region while here with our family.
