Connection between Yoga & Ayurveda

Connection between Yoga & Ayurveda

A yogic approach to healing is not a specialization or a side-line technique but requires a synthesis of all levels and aspects of healing.

That is why classical Yoga has an eightfold approach from lifestyle practices and values through asana, pranayama, to samadhi

We can call asana the “external medicine” of Yoga. It primarily treats musculoskeletal disorders, but indirectly can benefit many other conditions and can provide an ideal form of exercise for everyone.

Yet without the proper diet, its healing potentials are limited, as bodily activity is going to reflect the nutrition the body receives. Asana works best in the context of Ayurvedic dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
