Ayurveda

Ayurveda is amazing. It is an ancient Indian guiding wisdom that sits at the very heart of Pukka; everything we do, everything we share, everything we are, we try to imbue with the wisdom, beauty and soul of Ayurveda – it’s a wisdom that can flow into your life also, helping you unlock your full potential and come alive.

Perfect health starts with your constitution

Ayurvedic philosophy teaches us that everything in life has a constitution; be it a person, an animal, a food, or even a place. Understanding your own personal Ayurvedic constitution – or prakriti (which literally means ‘nature’) – is the first step in learning how to embrace your potential to achieve your optimum health.

Understanding the dosha

According to Ayurveda, doshas are the energy patterns that flow around our bodies, governing our thinking and behaviour. There are three primary doshasvata, pitta and kapha – and we are all born with all three of them. But it’s the dominance of one or two of these doshas that defines who we are. To enjoy a balanced mind, body and spirit, so the thinking goes, our unique dosha constitution needs to be in a state of equilibrium. When it isn’t, we fall ill.
