what is ayurveda?

the science of life

Ayurveda, literally means “the science of life” & originated in India as the traditional healing system over 5,000 years ago. Considered one of the oldest forms of medicine, this ancient science works both as preventative & curative medicine, which promotes daily self-care as a means to acquire perfect health. 

What are the doshas?

Your unique elemental make-up

There are 3 constitutions in Ayurveda: vata dosha, pitta dosha & kapha dosha. These 3 doshas are comprised of the elements: ether, air, fire, water & earth. Everything that is alive has the 5 elements within it & all 3 doshas. However, every living being has its own unique blend of the elements & thus the doshas. The amount of each dosha present within you offers the framework for your life experience.  

Doshas may be in or out of balance based on many factors. The time of day, the current season, your stage of life, the daily lifestyle choices that you make, all are constantly affecting the doshas. Ayurveda provides us with helpful self-care practices which allow us to create a harmonious external world that will facilitate healing not only physically but also deep within our beings.

What is prakruti?

your doshic signature

Prakruti is the Ayurvedic constitution, or the doshic state of balance, that you are born with. You came into this life with specific characteristics & tendencies that define you & stay constant throughout your lifetime. This is your prakruti. When you are truly in balance, healthy without any symptoms or disease, you are in the state of prakruti. 

A common misconception is that when we attempt to bring ourselves back into alignment, we are trying to equalize vatapitta & kapha in our mind, body experience.  Yet, this is not the goal.  Balance means that vata, pitta & kapha are restored to your unique prakrutic state of being.

what is vikruti?

Your current state of balance

Vikruti is when you are experiencing an imbalance in your body, mind or emotions. Any imbalance signifies that one or more of your doshas are out of alignment & you are in a current state of vikruti. This state happens when you are experiencing a tiny blemish to a much greater imbalance like chronic cystic acne. Doshic imbalances notify you to make changes in your current state of being in order for your doshas to return home to their ideal state of balance, your prakruti.
