When diet is correct, medicine is of no need."
Ayurveda Sri Lanka as a philosophy
Ayurveda Sri Lanka is an art of leading a healthy and balanced life both on physical and mental levels. Our lives are like waves surging up and down in the never-ending play of opposites. Our bodies are subject to environmental conditioning floating in the ocean of chemical and physical laws. An equilibrium point is hardly achievable with so many external forces bombarding our fragile bodies. Ayurveda as an ancient wisdom of Indian Rishis challenges to strike a balance by giving you knowledge and guidance into natural and healthy lifestyle as well as developing methods and systems of treatments to balance external and internal energies that undermine stability and health of the physical body.
Ayurveda Sri Lanka as a science
Ayurveda (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge) offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay healthy and vibrant while realizing their human skills and talents. At Yoga and Spa Lodge we use the pulse diagnosis (Nadi Vijnana) to determine your Prakruti (given at birth) and Vikruti (obtained through living) conditions of physical and energy bodies. Known as mind-body types, "doshas" are the foundation for Ayurveda. Doshas represent unique blends of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics.
The three doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, are derived from the five elements of nature, which are: Space (akasha), Air (vayu), Fire (tejas), Water (jala), and Earth (prithivi).
Understanding your unique dosha and the specific needs that derive from it, allows you to make optimal choices about exercise, diet, supplements and all other aspects of your lifestyle.
Ayurveda Sri Lanka as a holistic medicine
At Yoga Pilgrim Lodge we make herbal medicine (rasayana) in accordance with ancient formulas of Ayurveda using powerful energy of Sri Lanka's herbs. We also apply Indian science of Ayurveda both in yoga practice and treatment of ailment if any. Ayurvedic or re-balancing messages can be given at our premises.
According to Ayurveda, panchakarma are techniques to eliminate toxic elements from the body. Panchakarma are 5 (five) in number; hence the term PANCHA (five) – KARMA (procedures).
