The Link between Yoga & Ayurveda
AYURVEDA AND YOGA... A shared lineage of knowledge and Wisdom
In ancient times, it was understood that all life is imbibed with an energy of
oneness that connects everything and everyone. This oneness brought about
holistic wisdoms and teachings in all facets of life with an understanding of
Yoga and Ayurveda stem from the same ancient teachings of the universe, known as the "Vedas". The Vedas are the most ancient Hindu scriptures, written in early Sanskrit.
The Vedas contain information on science, medicine, spirituality, philosophy,
astrology and more. These books provided reference for all subjects of life, birth, death and beyond.
YOGA... Then and now
The traditional teachings of Yoga found in the Vedas are more complex than many people comprehend when they attend a modern Yoga class.
Yoga Asana (Yoga postures); is one of eight limbs of Raja Yoga.
Other Raja Yoga practices/limbs you may have heard of include meditation and Pranayama; all designed to become present with body and spirit, in order to
transcend the mind.
