Ayurveda is the science of life, and goes deeper into prescribing life regimens, food and diet, herbs, and an understanding of our specific mental and physical propensities, or constitution. By bringing into balance the 5 elements in the body and mind, we regain health.
Yoga works directly with the flow of prana (energy, life force) and cleans the blockages in our energy channels. Yoga asanas (poses) and pranayama (breathing exercises) help purifying the energy body and bring about vitality.
Ayurveda and Yoga helps you to find your True Nature to control the mind and intellect and lead a healthy life. Together, they are one of the most important preventative systems of medicine – calming the mind and breath, helping us to not identify too much with the drama of life which generates emotions such as fear or anger, and helping us to conserve energy and elongate lifespan.
Health is Wealth. It is our natural birthright.
The Yoga Farm is a wide of Ayurvedic retreats and courses throughout the year, catering to one's specific needs and time on hand.
