Ayurveda is the traditional Hindu system of medicine, which is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems and uses diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing.
In Sanskrit: Āyus = Life and Veda = Science
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential
Yoga is important for dissolving physical stress and calming the mind before meditation, and is central to dinacharya, the ayurvedic routine. It is the ideal ayurvedic exercise, because it rejuvenates the body, improves digestion, and removes stress.
Yoga balances all three doshas, and different poses have different effects. Twisting postures benefit the Pitta dosha by releasing the heat and therefore cooling the body. Backbends are most beneficial for Kapha because they help to invigorate and stimulate movement in the body, as if they are a mountain waking up. Forward bends are calming to the nervous system and help to balance Vata types.
Yoga postures tone every area of the body, and cleanse the internal organs of toxins, which is one of the goals of Ayurveda.
As Ayurveda teaches, good health is dependent upon our capability to fully metabolize the nutritional, emotional, and sensory information that we ingest. When our digestive energy, known as agni (fire), is robust, we create healthy tissues, eliminate waste products efficiently and produce a subtle essence.
Here are a few Ayurvedic practices to strengthen your digestive fire:
