WHAT is AYURVEDA
Ayurveda is Sanskrit and is a combination of the words Ayus, meaning life, and Veda, which means science; think of it as ‘the science of life’. Ayurveda is based on the principles of finding harmony and balance between mind, body and soul. The main focus is preventing disease and maintaining vitality and health by following recommendations specific to your type; these recommendations offer insight into the ideal routine of proper diet, lifestyle, behavior and state of mind. Ridding our systems of both physical and spiritual toxins is an important part of the practice.
Nathalie Geetha is a life-lover... After a career as a family physician, she decides to train in yogatherapy, dance, and Ayurveda, with Deepak Chopra. Following her guidance we will learn and practice together the principles of this ancient medicine. A manual will be offered to you so that you can experience the Detox at home when needed. *This detox program is inspired by Nathalie Geetha's on-line program "Ma Détox Colorée"
Food is perhaps the most important and most neglected ingredient of a healthy lifestyle. The Ayurvedic cuisine is a type of new wave food system where the diet includes all the necessary minerals and nutrients to promote growth and health while also keeping in consideration the palatability of the food offered.
This dietary system takes into account all the possible permutations through which the quality of food can be increased without destroying its taste. This cuisine is not only healthy but it also caters to all the age groups according to their choices.
There is no dearth of variety and there are numerous dishes with varied preparations which help in maintaining the novelty of the food. This cuisine is the best way to promote a healthy lifestyle for everyone.
