WHAT IS AYURVEDA
Ayurvedic Wisdom in everyday life
Ayurveda is at the very heart of Pukka. It is an ancient Indian philosophy guiding and inspiring us in the ‘art of living wisely.’ In simple terms, ayurveda is a holistic system which guides us so that we can live a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. It recognises that we are all unique and focuses on food, lifestyle, massage, yoga and herbal remedies to suit our individual make-up.
The wisdom of ayurveda encourages us to take responsibility for our own health according to the different stages of our lives, the seasons, and the environment we live, work and play in. These factors all have a big impact on our health and it makes sense to adapt our lifestyle accordingly so we can continue to live in harmony with our body and stay in optimum health.
Ayurveda is all about living life to the full and keeping yourself on top form - whatever life throws at you!
It's not always easy, and I certainly trip-up all the time, but the value of understanding how to adjust your diet and daily life in accordance with how you feel and what you need is the priceless gift that Ayurveda offers us. I hope you enjoy your journey through these Ayurvedic Roots pages and that they help to empower your life.
With my best wishes,
