Ayurveda means the science of life and has been used in India for thousands of years to bring the body into a healthy and vitalized state of balance. The treatments are individualized to a person’s unique constitution, with the goal to reconnect with the natural cycles that surround us. John Douillard introduces how Ayurveda works with the cycles of the seasons and the hours of each day to bring less stress to our systems and achieve a calm and nourished body. The effects of food within these natural cycles is also touched upon, along with the connection to the sister science of yoga.
