"Love is the Light that disolves all walls between souls, families and nations."
Yoga's origins date back atleast 4,000 years, and some put it back 10,000years or more. It is the art and science of Self-discovery and care that helps us connect to our Spiritual center, core or original self, through an inward focus on complete breathing( learning how to utilize our full lung capacity in the correct way --pranayama ) and the yoga positions or asanas. These asanas stretch the body in a prescribed way, that when informed by the movement of the breath are energized into vehicles of profound health-giving benefits for body and mind. Through this practice we may experience a release from the stress of everyday demands and concerns, and discover an increased energy level and capacity for more peace, joy and well-being. Yoga balances us and creates the space for more life and thus, more flexibility in movement and attitude.

You will be given a written questionnaire to fill out by your Ayurvedic Practitioner that she will analyze in order to determine your elemental constitutional type, Vata, Pitta or Kapha. The preponderance of these elements, Vata---Space and Air, Pitta---Fire and Water, Kapha---Water and Earth will give the underlying template upon which your unique bodymind (Prakriti) is created and from which it can be expertly analyzed by your consultant.
During the initial interview, along with the questionnaire, you will be asked about your basic health concerns and issues as well as your daily routines of lifestyle, diet, work, talents, hobbies, practices, and your medical history. The Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis and tongue diagnosis is also taken to provide the Ayurvedic Practitioner with a complete picture that will reveal your physical, mental and spiritual strengths and give valuable information as to any imbalances (Vikruti) and their sources.
