Ayurveda – “living life with grace”

Ayurveda addresses the alignment of the outer and different levels of our being with our inner or immortal self. As well as, our karmic reincarnating being that connect to the supreme self, the divine essence within us. Yoga and Ayurveda are integrative systems and combined help us live life with grace. The meaning of Ayur meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge.

Veda yoga or inner cognitive science is born out of samadhi. This is the state of inner knowing or self realisation beyond the mind. Veda is knowledge and Yoga is its practice. They are two sides of the same truth. Yoga leads us to and expresses Veda. Veda embodies itself through yoga as its expression.
