What is Ayurveda ?
Many of us feel stressed and tired by the grueling pace of modern life.
Ayurveda, which literally means “knowledge” or science of life, helps the body to heal itself through a deep self-awareness to overcome the challenges of contemporary life.
This traditional healing system of India and Sri Lanka dates back more than 5000 years and is a comprehensive philosophy encompassing health, psychology, sexuality, medicine, lifestyle, yoga, relationships, nature and daily rituals. According to Ayurvedic principles, disease is the natural result of a life non harmonized with our elementary nature and constitution.
What are the Doshas ?
Ayurveda teaches us that there are three Doshas : Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
At the most fundamental level, Pitta is our metabolism, Kapha is our structure and Vata is the mobility that brings action and life to creation. We are all a combination of these Doshic energies.
Your Dosha essentially represents your emotional tendencies, your unique body type and your genetic make-up. It helps you make choices about diet, exercise, rest and daily activities.
Usually, a Dosha is predominant in each person. By discovering your dominant Dosha, you can adapt your daily beauty routine to maintain a healthy and balanced life.
Inspired by Ayurveda, Aika offers a personalized range of holistic facial and body products and soothing rituals based on each of the three Doshas.
