The Yoga + Ayurveda Connection

Updated: Apr 18


History

There is much in common between Yoga + Ayurveda—and the two are often referred to as "Sister Sciences"—but what does that term really mean exactly?


Scholars are not quite sure which came first because these ancient modalities are so intertwined and so old.


Both date back thousands of years. Both are from India and predate Hinduism. Both are discussed in the ancient Vedas (oldest + most sacred books of India).


The Connection

Yoga is one of the founding philosophies of Ayurveda and is hailed as a remedy to so much of what ails us.


Ayurveda is the oldest form of practiced medicine in the world and is utilized to prevent disease while maintaining homeostasis.


Coming Together

Yoga is more than just a series of postures, it is a Philosophy.


Ayurveda is more than disease management, it is a Lifestyle.


Yoga + Ayurveda deeply support each other as "sister-sciences"—


  • Both create and nurture a wholesome healthy life

  • Both systems unite the body, the mind, and the soul

  • Both help to release and process emotions, increase physical + mental flexibility, increase immunity, and combat illness


Union

Ayurveda Medicine reduces stress and brings balance back into your daily life through observing digestive, sleep, and energy patterns and resolving discord via small changes in food and lifestyle choices—designed to increase longevity + improve overall well-being.

A "lifestyle" recommendation often made within Ayurveda Medicine is Yoga.


Yoga postures improve circulation, reduce toxins, clear and ground the mind, and help your body to cultivate + maintain a positive frequency.
