In today’s busy world where food is valued for being fast and cheap and the media compels us to consume but not get fat it is easy to become confused about what choices are right for us.

The final lecture in this series, Ayurvedic Daily Lifestyle, helps us create a daily routine that brings us into harmony with the rhythms of nature.

About Ayurvedic Teaching
Literally defined as knowledge of life, the science and art of Ayurveda explores the principles behind living a healthy and satisfying life. Ayurveda encompases every part of a person’s life, from food to exercise and beyond. Ayurvedic treatment carefully examines nearly every aspect of an individual’s life, and then prescribes a perfectly tailored therapy to help them achieve a fulfilling and healthy lifestyle.
Ayurveda and Yoga
As much as Ayurvedic treatment focuses on the body, it also values the health and wellness of the mind. Yoga assists in both of these areas unlike any other form of treatment. There are many things that the two have in common, such as the emphasis on balance, harmony, and self-awareness. Yoga can help in achieving the balance that Ayurvedic practice seeks to accomplish through both its physical and spiritual aspects.
