Ayurveda with Nivartana
“More than a vacation, discover a path to well-being in Sri Lanka, the authentic Ayurveda destination”
The term “Ayurveda” is derived from the Sanskrit words “Ayur,” meaning life, and “Veda,” meaning knowledge or science. Therefore, Ayurveda translates to “the science of life” or “knowledge of life.” It is a traditional system of medicine that originated in ancient India and encompasses a holistic approach to health, focusing on balance and harmony among the body, mind, and spirit.
Ayurveda, the ancient science of healing, offers a unique perspective on health and well-being. Ayurveda takes a holistic approach, emphasizing the combination of mind, body, and spirit. At its core lies the concept of the Panchamahabhutas, the five primal elements – akasha-space,Apo- water,Thejo- fire,Wayo- air, Patawi- earth – which are believed to be the building blocks of the universe and everything within it.
These elements combine in different proportions to form the Tridoshas – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha – which governs our physiological and psychological functions.
Each individual possesses a unique Prakriti, a constitutional blueprint determined by the specific ratio of these doshas. Understanding your Prakriti allows you to make informed choices about food, lifestyle, and daily routines that maintain balance and promote optimal health.
Stress less, sleep deeper, and feel your best with the power of Ayurveda.
Understanding how different foods influence your doshas empowers you to make conscious choices that optimize your physical and mental state. For example, Vata individuals benefit from warming, grounding foods like root vegetables and cooked grains, while Pitta thrives on cooling foods like yogurt and leafy greens.
Paying attention to what you eat goes beyond mere calories and nutrients. Ayurveda delves into the inherent qualities of food – its taste, energy, and post-digestive effect – to guide you towards choices that nourish your body, mind, and spirit.
