Yoga And Ayurveda

Ayurvedagram Bangalore


Yoga and Ayurveda are known as sister sciences which work in tandem to heal the body, mind and spirit.

Yoga, which is derived from Sanskrit means to yoke or harness together. Yoga is much more than just Asanas. It is the complete understanding of your body and mind and that is what we at Ayurvedagram try to impart to our guests. Here you will get an insight into the Yogic Life as it should be during your stay with us.

Living a Yogic Life means first bringing the body to a state of fitness and flexibility where the mind and spirit are not dragged down by the ills of the body. As the body eases into health, the mind and spirit are freed to explore beyond to areas enabling you to focus, be calm, and attain some necessary detachment from stress.

Yoga at Ayurvedagram is an integral part of the healing we deliver. Through asanas, healing through breath: pranayama and meditation, several simple duties ( karma yoga), and Yogic philosophy, our Yoga Acharyas complement the Ayurvedic interventions of the Vaids.

At the 'Gram', people can interact with Yoga in the following two ways:

  • Here you will attend 3 group sessions a day for exercises, meditation and pranayama. You will also have individual conversations with the Yoga Acharya which will help you define the place of Yoga in your regime. You also have the choice to supplement the group sessions with individual sessions to help you with addressing specific complaints as well as get an enhanced understanding of Yoga.
  • We get some guests who come to us ONLY for Yoga - to learn and experience a new way of Living and Thinking. In this program you will travel along the Path of the Yogi while focusing on philosophy, asanas, techniques of pranayama , techniques of meditation and mantra chanting . The exposure is to hatha Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Karma Yoga and Raj Yoga. The style encourages stillness in action what is called Shanti Yoga. Here the pauses between actions are taught as a time of contemplation: to go within and understand the Self.

But what are the actual benefits that Yoga and Ayurveda can bring into your life? Whether you visit a Yoga and Ayurveda retreat or practice Ayurvedic Yoga at home daily, the practice itself can be rewarding in multiple ways.

The following section discusses Yoga and Ayurveda’s potential benefits for those who want a healthy mind and body, the natural way.

Health Benefits of Yoga and Ayurveda

Here are some of the most attractive Ayurveda and Yoga benefits that can help maintain good health.

1. Working on the Root of Diseases

Ayurveda is an ancient alternative medicine science that takes a holistic approach for helping manage various diseases. While modern medicine may often give quick relief by eliminating just the visible symptoms, Ayurveda reaches the root of the disease and tries to manage, control or improve the condition.

This helps ensure that the said disease does not surface up repeatedly.

2. Weight Management

A recent study has listed poor eating habits and lifestyle as the leading cause of deaths in America, surpassing even those caused by smoking.

So, yes, smokers are at a lower risk of losing their lives than people with poor eating habits and a lousy lifestyle.

Ayurveda is a boon that can help improve your lifestyle and shift to a cleaner, healthier diet eventually. Also, as Yoga and Ayurveda focus on improving and maintaining your overall health, daily practice may also enhance your metabolism, eventually helping you keep a check on your weight.

3. Yoga - Increasing Flexibility and Mobility

While yoga is one of the finest ways of preparing for deep meditations, its benefits go way beyond that

From increasing flexibility to keeping your muscles warmed up, yoga does it all.

Muscle fatigue can often be caused by intense workouts without proper stretching. Yoga is a practice that can help make your body more flexible, and your muscles more resilient. It can certainly be added to your pre-workout warm-up routine, as several yoga asanas can make you stretch your body parts and release any residual tension.

For those lacking clue about how to practice Yoga, Ayurvedagram’s Yoga and Ayurveda center have numerous yoga programs. Whether you are a complete beginner or looking for trainer-level guidance, we do have a program for you.

4. A Natural Detox

At times we may feel or realize the existence of toxins inside our bodies. This can be indicated through a number of signals.

From constipation to excessive acne, all are results of the toxins overpowering inside our system. The beautiful blend of Yoga and Ayurveda can help us battle these toxins out.

Here are a few Ayurvedic methods you can adapt for eliminating toxins out of your body.

Purvakarma and Panchakarma: Purvakarma is supposed to send the toxins to your bowel and skin for them to be eradicated out. The process involves oil massage, steaming and intake of ghee etc.

Moving further, Panchakarma therapy helps eliminate these toxins and rejuvenate the body through five treatments.

Revised eating habits: The long known quote “we are what we eat” holds all the weight here.

As our eating habits largely determine our mental and physical health, Ayurveda encourages us to have a balanced diet. For more information on Ayurvedic eating habits or for a customized diet plan, it’d be best for you to consult an Ayurvedic doctor.

On the ending note, Yoga and Ayurveda lead the path for healthy living, the natural way, and if you want to start on the path of holistic wellbeing, Ayurvedagram is the name to trust.
