Ayurveda is a sister science of yoga. Transliterated from Sanskrit as “The Science of Life”, Ayurveda is a natural, holistic system that focuses on prevention and health maintenance.
Through application of the five elements: earth, water, fire, air, and ether, Ayurveda assists individuals in identifying one’s “constitution”. Being aware of one’s constitution can be helpful in understanding deeper patterns of the body.
At Inner Explorer Yoga, Leilani works with clients to identify their individual constitution, then recommends lifestyle supports that align. Ayurveda can be used in conjunction with Western allopathic medicine and therefore is an effective tool when yoga therapy is a component of a client’s healthcare provider team or when the client is working to reduce his/her/their medications.
