Ayurveda is a wellness practice that originated in South Asia, especially western-north part of Nepal around 5,000 years ago. The word “Ayurveda” is a combination of two Sanskrit words that mean life (Ayur) and science (Veda), so the literal translation of Ayurveda is “the science of life.”
We know that food affects our moods and general health. Ayurveda has taught us that by balancing our diet we can maintain balance in our body, in our physical functioning. According to Ayurveda, it is essential to eat daily from all the six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent. Each taste performs a unique energy efficiency upon the body that is vital for body functioning.
The main difference between the ayurvedic and yogic diets is that Ayurveda aims to restore the body in a state of health and balance, while yogic diets are aimed at facilitating higher practices of yoga assuming a base level of health has already been reached.
Eating a well-balanced diet, according to the Ayurvedic principles, naturally brings balance to the mind and body and will only make your yoga practice more effective and in tune with the goal of yoga, which is union, health, wholeness – all really one concept.
