Ayurveda is the oldest complete scientific healing system in the history of mankind. It originated in India and influenced medical systems in different parts of the world. Yoga is an integral part of Ayurvedic medicine. According to Ayurveda, the ultimate aim of human life is to heal the body and mind and bring it into a state of harmony between the environment and consciousness.
Ayurveda and Yoga are two sides of the same coin and cannot be separated. Ayurveda provides the foundation for understanding how to use yoga to restore energy balance in the human body and mind to support the healing process.
Classical yoga appeared as a spiritual practice aimed at self-realization, which is beyond the physical plane. This is why traditional yogic texts say little about the disease, diagnosis, or treatment. When we get information about health-related problems in yoga texts, it comes from Ayurveda. On the other hand, in the system of Vedic science, we will find classical yoga as a branch of Ayurveda that deals specifically with physical and psychological diseases and focuses on their treatment.
Why should one go for Sanjeevani Yoga?
Both Ayurveda and Yoga recognize the role of consciousness as a major factor in our well-being. Yoga tools such as Asanas, Pranayama, Mantras, and Meditation with an Ayurvedic healthy lifestyle (Dinacharya) that includes proper diet, herbs, massage, and Ayurvedic treatments can help to combat the disturbances of balance in the physical and mental levels of our existence. help. In other words, Yoga and Ayurveda provide the knowledge and foundation to lead a healthy life free from mental or physical disease.
If yoga teachers have knowledge of Ayurveda, its view of body and mind, health and disease, including the biological constitution of the individual, and Ayurveda’s natural approach to healing and life, they and their students will benefit greatly from it.
Both Yoga and Ayurveda use the same language of energy and universal energetic forces. Studying the Ayurvedic approach to anatomy and physiology, the constitution and pathological process, which follows the energies of prana, will greatly enhance the yoga practitioner’s view of “disease” and how to treat it in a yogic way. Studying the Ayurvedic approach to how physical diseases are related to psychological diseases developed from a lack of connection with our inner consciousness would greatly expand the field of yogic psychology.
Keeping the above facts in mind, the future of Yoga therapy cannot be imagined in Ayurveda or vice versa. Ayurveda can help us add a medical background, diagnosis, and more treatment options. This makes yoga therapy a part of the entire Yoga system of medicine. Book your stay at Best Naturopathy Center in India.
