Ayurveda at Stella Luna

The Science of a Balanced Lifestyle from Ancient India for Use Today

Ayurveda, a science and philosophy born and nurtured in India, teaches that each individual has the power to heal him or herself. Thus, this science offers the freedom to recover health by understanding the body and its needs. Ayurveda proclaims that the central principle of health is “balance.” It offers specific guidelines, practices, recipes and remedies to achieve this balance. These guidelines vary across the seasons, can differ for each person, and also change throughout one’s lifespan.

The four aspects of the body – doshas (body humors), dhatus (tissues), malas (wastes), and agni (digestion) need to be kept in balance in order to maintain proper health. The ayurvedic lifestyle is based upon three concepts – Moderation, Routine, and Tuning-In to the natural rhythms of doshas and agni.

Nutrition is called “the great medicine” in Ayurveda. A wholesome, well-balanced diet is the foundation of health, strength and happiness for both mind and body. Yoga, being the sister science to Ayurveda, helps in not only attaining the goal of a fit body but also in connecting with the higher self.
