AYURVEDA & the DOSHAS

Ayurveda, literally meaning “the science of life,” is an ancient holistic science over 5,000 years old offers a profound body of knowledge for understanding ourselves within the laws of nature, helping us to achieve vitality, optimal wellness and ageless beauty.

According to Ayurveda, each individual along with nature in its entirety is comprised of the five fundamental elements: Space, Air, Fire, Water and Earth. These elements uniquely combine within each one of us, creating a distinct and unique blueprint also known as our Dosha.

Knowing your Dosha will help you determine the best lifestyle choices, nutrition and skincare products that will offer optimal wellness for your mind, body and spirit.

There are 3 main Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
