Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health system from India that provides personalized guidelines for creating health and happiness. Based on the principle that wellness results from balance in body, mind, and spirit, ayurveda offers ways to prevent disease, heal illness, and uncover secrets for longevity. The Ayurvedic Year is an empowering book, designed to facilitate personal transformation with a clearly presented seasonal approach that promotes health, mental agility, and spiritual development throughout the year. A combination of simple lifestyle tips, reflections, quotes, and exercises makes this practice accessible to virtually everyone.

According to ayurveda, each person is made up of a special mix of three fundamental energies, called doshas: fire (pitta), earth (kapha), and air (vata). Daily life is a dynamic interchange among the doshas, and any alteration in one affects the others. The Ayurvedic Year helps each individual identify his or her personal dosha mix, then offers a practical guide to diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes for a better life balance, health, and happiness. Learn to eat right with menu ideas (including vegetarian options) for each dosha. Use ayurveda to stay healthy and prevent the onset of disease. Master soothing ayurvedic massage with oils selected to match your dosha. And learn yoga asanas, breathing exercises, and meditations that help foster and maintain balance and well-being, all year long.
