Ayurveda is based on the laws of nature, and is considered to be a direct reflection of the healing wisdom inherent in life itself. In simplest terms, Ayurveda is the wisdom that explains what conditions are necessary for each of us to thrive. By learning about your Ayurvedic constitution you become empowered to take charge of your own health.

"Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh taught Yoga-Vedanta, which came to the West through his many disciples like Satchidananda, Vishnudevananda, Ventakeshananda and Jyotirmayananda. The Sivananda Yoga-Vedanta centers founded by Swami Vishnudevananda teach regular programs on Yoga-Vedanta and with references to Ayurveda as well. I have done many programs with this organization and find it to be the best Yoga training group in the west." -Dr. David Frawley
