When working out this amount you have to consider the amount of stress you are putting on your body and calculate recovery. It was important that I eat more, sleep enough and track the amount of work I was putting into a day.

What is Ayurveda?

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient science dating back more than 5,000 years.  The sister science to yoga, Ayurveda is a holistic health system that focuses on your true nature and finding balance for living a life of wellness and vitality through daily practices.  The doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha are representations of the elements, Air, Fire, Earth, Water and Space.  I like to think of the doshas as a toolbox to understand your body, your mind, your spirit and the world around you.  By looking at the root cause of dis-ease, the practice of Ayurveda assists your body and mind in healing itself. Ayurveda is a beautiful accessible practice you can incorporate into your life to bring peace and joy every day.
