Ayurveda, the 5000-year-old "science of life" is the companion to Yoga in the ancient Indian arts of health and wellness. Yoga emphasizes postures, breathing and meditation, while Ayurveda teaches the best diet and lifestyle choices according to one's constitution. Together these systems provide a holistic vision for living with vitality, clarity and joy.
