Ayurveda & Yoga practiced together offer practical tools for evolution & healing.
I've been practicing Ayurveda with Yoga since 1996 when I took my first Ayurveda workshop with Maya Tiwari. I was immediately drawn to the all-embracing inclusiveness of Ayurveda.
I remember being lovingly reassured by Maya that I didn't have to know everything all at once and that it is a process of exploration of life. What a relief!
I went through those beginning stages while raising my two young boys as a single mom. We learned about the basics together, and it was very fun. I went on to study with Maya Tiwari and later Vaidya Mishra. I was one lucky girl to have them as teachers.
Ayurveda is a natural weave throughout any yoga practice. It's the science of oneness and explains HOW we are one with everything. Every yogi needs to know that and apply its impact to their daily life with actions rooted in ahimsa (non-harm).
It's now 23 years later. I can't imagine my life without Ayurveda. After many years of practice, I know I'm never going to be done learning. Every time I teach, I learn more.
We all learn together. Thats Ayurveda.
