What is Ayurveda?

In Sanskrit, Ayurveda translates as the "science of life." This ancient, holistic medical system, which originated in India over 5,000 years ago, still continues to remind us how to lead a more balanced way of life by diving deeper into the understanding of ourselves. The more familiar one can become with their body-type and mind-type, the better he/she will be at knowing what kinds of foods and lifestyle practices are balancing for them.

Ayurveda illustrates that each and every living organism has a specific constitution that is unique and different than the next. The body is made up of three fundamental energies or characteristics, called "doshas," that govern our psychophysiological tendencies. Through the understanding of the doshas, together we will discover which foods, practices, and styles of physical movement are balancing for you depending on your constitution, or mind-body type. 

Ayurveda is a lifestyle. It reminds us that daily self-care rituals (e.g. meditating, dancing, retreating) are a way of celebrating the body, celebrating life.

With love, Ho'ola Mamma celebrates you.

"I knew I wanted to work with the human body in some way. I studied Exercise Science, thinking Physical Therapy was my path. I bought a one way ticket to California from my hometown of Chicago, had three suitcases in hand, and was in search of my purpose. In between the shifts of living in a new environment without a plan, I stumbled upon a yoga studio that changed my life. Now I am sharing the gift that has been given to me, teaching throughout Los Angeles." - Adrienne Mascarenas Diaz
