Help your body return to balance

AYURVEDA

Originating in India and translated as “The science of life”, Ayurveda is based on the principle that there are three biological humours within the body: Vata, Pitta and Kapha, also known as the three Doshas. The Doshas govern all aspects of the mind and body, and fluctuate in response to the conditions of our immediate environment, including the rhythms and cycles of nature. Doshas also fluctuate in response to the food we eat and the impressions we receive through the senses. The balance of the Doshas is vital to maintain health and prevent diseases. Only when we are in a balanced state can we take advantage of our body’s natural intelligence to prevent diseases of the mind and body, and experience health to its full potential.

ISHWARI AYURVEDA

Ishwari Ayurveda is a new space in Oliva, Valencia, dedicated to health and wellness.

I have been practising Ayurveda since 2006 when I met my teacher Dr Ajit Singh (B.A.M.S.). I began to enter the world of Ayurveda with a daily routine and a diet that have greatly improved my health. I lived in Australia for over 20 years, where I worked as an interpreter for the Immigration Department. Much of my work was carried out in hospitals and medical centres, where I realized that the western medical system needs support from an alternative, holistic and more natural approach.

I have practised yoga since 2004 under the tradition of Satyananda Yoga, which has led me to live in several Ashrams in Australia and in India.

Today I still love Ayurveda as much as 15 years ago. Moreover, the more I practise it, the more convinced I am of its broad benefits. That’s why I started a 3-year Advanced Diploma in 2016, with the AIAS (Australian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies) in Brisbane, Australia. A course approved by the Australian Government; three thousand hours of intense training where traditional Ayurveda is taught.

My experience and education in Ayurveda have given me a broad understanding of the benefits that can be experienced when modern medicine are combined with a traditional and holistic approach such as Ayurveda. This is especially relevant when it comes to diet and lifestyle. My goal is to provide people with the appropriate knowledge and tools that allow them to recover their natural state of health and well-being.
