What is Ayurveda? - Lunch & Learn with Larry Mangel of Shanti Yoga and Ayurveda
Ayurveda teaches that healthy digestive fire is the other main key to sustained health. Imbalances can present themselves as anxiety, stress, insomnia, depression, and weight gain to name a few. To achieve the needed balance and healthy digestion, Ayurveda encourages us to eat specific foods, herbs and spices which will bring our particular bodies into better balance. It encourages specific yoga poses, pranayama practice, meditation and walking in nature.
