The science of life

Yoga in Nature

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

Ayurveda, the science of life, was born in India more than 5.000 years ago. It is both systematized knowledge and practical wisdom, an art of healthy living that encompasses all phases of life, body, mind, and spirit. According to Ayurveda, the human being is considered to be a microcosm of the macrocosm that is the universe. Whatever is present in the cosmos, the same is present in human beings.


We are a miniature of nature.

SPACE                       AIR                      FIRE                        WATER                          EARTH

The five elements present in nature (space, air, fire, water, and earth) also exist within each individual. Both in our outer environment and within us, the proportion and balance of these elements is always changing: with the seasons, the weather, the time of day, the stage of one's life. Our body and mind are continuously adapting to these changes, finding balance and health through what we eat, what we wear, where we live, how we sleep, how we behave and so on.

These five elements combine into three basic energies (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) that are present in everything and everybody. In our bodies, these three doshas govern the biological and psychological processes of our body, mind, and consciousness. All people have all of these three doshas, and well-being depends on maintaining their natural proportion in balance. The constant interplay between internal environment of the body and external external environment determines our state of health.
