Yoga and Ayurveda
It is the sister
science to Yoga, both integral parts of the same Vedic tradition. They
both developed together and repeatedly influenced each other throughout
history. As sister disciplines they work together to enhance their great
benefits on all levels of life.
Ayurveda is primarily a science of self-healing aimed at alleviating the diseases of body and mind and restoring wholeness. The ultimate goal however, of self-healing is self-realization.
Yoga postures or asanas and meditation systems aimed at attaining inner peace, make up the spiritual aspect of Ayurveda, while Ayurvedic diet, herb and lifestyle regimens make up the practical side of yogic spirituality.
