YOGA AND AYURVEDA
Yoga and Ayurveda have long been linked together as
two complimentary systems of human development.
They grew up organically intertwined through their
common ancient Vedic roots – the legacy of the
legendary Himalayan rishis who understood the laws of
the universe and the inner process of cosmogenesis that
holds the keys to all transformations. The two systems
have maintained a long and intimate history, interacting
upon and enhancing one another up to the present day.
Ayurveda is the “second phase” of interest in Yoga,
which builds upon the first phase of interest in Yoga as
an exercise system.
For its healing purpose, classical Yoga is closely
aligned with traditional Ayurveda “the science of life”,
which can also be called Yogic medicine. Ayurveda uses
diet, herbs, bodywork, pranayama, mantra and
meditation as part of a holistic system of healing that
parallels the practices of Yoga relative to the body,
mind and spirit. They both reflect a dharmic approach
to life, a seeking to keep all beings in harmony with the
benefic laws of the universe.
As Yogic healing becomes emphasized we must
naturally turn our attention to Ayurveda as well.
