Ayurveda and yoga have been united Vedic sciences twenty years ago to cure body, mind and consciousness. In general, ayurveda deals more closely with body health, while yoga cleans mind and consciousness, but in reality they complement and absorb each other.
The ancient rishis (seer) was the original master of all Vedic sciences. They understood that good health is a good tool for self-realization. If the body is neglected, it can easily hinder spiritual practice. Anyone who has been meditating for a long time agrees with the difficulty of sitting for a long time without feeling uncomfortable and tired. Both yoga and ayurveda support each other and offer many ways to prevent and cure various abnormalities and cleanse and rejuvenate the body.
In addition to sharing philosophical fundamentals, both systems have many similarities to attitudes, nutrition, hygiene, practice, purification exercises, and spiritual practices. Traditionally, a yoga student would live close to the guru for years and serve him during which time he learned healthy habits. The basis of health and longevity has made Ayurvedic principles in oral tradition as the basis for the life of the sailboat.
Today, yoga teaching is readily available to everyone, and when done or we can not jump into practice. It has a blessing in the sense that more teachings can be devoted to humans, though they have often been lost without parampar or a close drive at the foot of the perfect master. With this in mind, modern yoga practitioners will certainly benefit from Ayurveda's basic knowledge of helping to develop a healthy daily routine and the constitution, dosha imbalance, season, and so on. Consistent with preventing the disease and promoting longevity.
Let's first look at the similarities between yoga and ayurveda:
* Both are ancient Vedic teachings. Yoga comes from Yajur Veda, while Ayurveda comes from Atharva Veda and Rig Veda.
* Both recognize that maintaining a healthy body is essential to achieving the four goals of life: Dharma, Artha (wealth), Kama (desire), and Moksha (liberation). Both recognize that the balance between dossiers (humor), dhatus (tissues) and malas (waste products) is essential for maintaining good health.
is the same metaphysical anatomy and physiology consisting of 72,000 nadizs (fine channels), 7 chakras (energy centers), 5 body covers, and Kundalini Shakti (energy).
* Both support diet,
* Both encourage physical health as a good basis for mental, emotional and mental well-being.
* Both of them both and the spirit share the same view of psychology. Ayurveda includes the major schools of philosophy, including the sung of Patanjali and Vedanta yoga (not a double philosophical and spiritual path). They both understand that attachment to the body-mind complex is the root cause of all suffering and that ultimate health is experienced by observing our true nature, which is total peace regardless of the state of the physical body.
* Both use body cleansing methods, all of which encourage the removal of waste products and toxins through its natural pathways. The ayurveda panchakarma (five cleansing measures) and yoga Shat Karma (six cleaning measures) are used.
The Asana Practice in Ayurvedic Approach
Meditation of asana, pranayama and healing as Yoga Chikitsa or yoga therapy and thousands of years have been used by Ayurvedic and Yogic Adepts. In Yoga Chikitsa, a group of yogic exercises are chosen that best support the individual and exercise them daily. This can be done over a longer period with the ayurvedic system and herbal and dietary therapies. Yoga Chikitsa plays an integral part in the Ayurvedic Cleansing and Rejuvenation Process as Panchakarma
It is important to take into account the individual body structure, prakruti (original constitution) and vikruti (constitutional imbalance).
Vata-dominant individuals must remember to dampen, emace, silence, gain and balance during their practice.
* Vinyasa or Yoga's flow styles move too fast from one position to another and exacerbate vata's hyper-mobile quality over time. Flow sequences can be done to pacify the vata, if not too long, keeping the time length and the transitions slowly and deliberately
. * Those with lower back problems may find that knee bending
* Back bends must be carried out slowly, carefully and within their limits
Pitta individuals need to maintain a calm, cool and calm intention during the asan. Pitta types may benefit from trying to cultivate the attitudes of repentance, to pass on, or to pass on the fruits of practice to the gods to the people who need positive healing energy. Since asana practice generates heat in the body, it is best in daily cooling times, such as dawn or twilight. It may be useful, for example, to position poses that help free up excess heat from the body, such as poses that compress the sunblock and open openings that open the chest.
Kapha types tend to persecute and often do not like strong practice. For this reason, their practices must be energized, warmed up, relaxed and stimulated, provided they are physically capable of doing so. Vinyasa or flow yoga is good for Kapha because it is dynamic and moves fast from one pose to another, sweating and sucking the heart.
Yoga poses with which specific doshic problems can easily be added to the ayurvedic system and incorporated into an existing yoga routine or organized in a small section with an ayurvedic physician who knows well each case and can help create a well-balanced program for each to the needs of clients
