AYURVEDA AND YOGA TWO COMPLEMENTARY SCIENCES
When we talk about yoga very often we talk about ayurveda ..
In short, Ayurveda and yoga go hand in hand but why and how come on the other hand in the West very often those who practice yoga do not know anything about ayurveda?
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian science, we would define it as Indian medicine par excellence, and it is not just about beliefs, myths or magical rituals but rather a true science that in India and now all over the world is in excellent health. There are hospitals in which to be treated only and exclusively with Ayurveda and medicines, Ayurvedic supplements.
AYURVEDA AND YOGA TWO COMPLEMENTARY SCIENCES:
In india where this discipline was born, it is considered a kind of preventive medicine:
Ayurveda shows us how to live, how to feel better, even how to cure ourselves according to our imbalances or symptoms, how to eat, to stay fit, and how to apply it to life on a daily basis.
However, what many ignore is that Ayurveda is considered complementary to the practice of Yoga, i.e. there is no Ayurveda without yoga.
(asanas, pranayama, meditation etc. are considered an integral part of Ayurvedic medicine)
but not even yoga without ayurveda.
In fact, we speak of two complementary sciences, two sides of the same coin. They represent two universes of boundless knowledge that touch and often overlap.
Two types of work that can be profitably combined and that look at the evolution of man as a whole.
The individual, the person is in fact conceived as a complex being whose health is given by the well-being of many components to be put together already in the preventive phase.
Those who practice daily, those who have made it a lifestyle or a profession cannot fail to know the yogic anatomy from the point of view of Ayurveda and cannot fail to know the dictates of Ayurveda, such as how to eat, how much to eat, how to purify yourself, how to prepare for lessons, how and when to sleep, how to dress to practice and so on;
in short, ayurveda and yoga are at least completely inseparable from the traditional point of view.
What does Ayurveda imply?
Ayurveda also implies a series of hygiene rules concerning the yoga practice: and in fact once again both pranayama (breath control) and asana or mudra (hand positions) are used as real purifiers of our body and mind.
In addition to practices such as cleaning the nose, for example, breathing practices are combined to keep the NADI channels clean and so on.
Ayurveda also like any medical science, starts from the anatomy of the body, and addresses its various layers and levels, and knowing this part becomes fundamental for any yoga enthusiast, teacher or yogini.
Discovering your dosha, understanding the gunas, realizing how we act according to our physicality and recognizing the deepest imbalances can only improve not only our life but also daily practice.
