An Ayurvedic Doctor considers the whole human being, believing that people have within them the required energy to bring the body back to a healthy, or balanced, state.
This consultation will be dedicated to understanding what elemental imbalances have developed in the body and mind. We will explore your current diet, lifestyle, personal history, health challenges, exercise routines, and stress triggers. This conversation will give you insight into your personal dosha (mind/body type) and the way this dosha is supporting you naturally (prakruti), and the way that this dosha has come out of balance over time (vikruti).
STAGES OF AN YOGI
``Yoga is a key to unlocking the doors within your own mind to a life of peace, happiness and fulfillment``
The first stage in the practice of yoga is one in which we practise at the level of the physical body.
The second stage is when the practitioner learns to move in unison with the body.
The third stage occurs when the intelligence and the body become one.
The final stage is the state of perfection. The Inner awareness, (spirituality) will build and flow into the practitioner through these stages. Negative emotions such as fear, misery or pain will vanish, and life will become one of simplicity, peace and happiness.
