My journey to Ayurveda
Updated: Feb 15, 2021
So let me take you on a little journey of how I got here.
For most of my 20’s I spent my time exploring the world and myself, with an open mind and free spirit, embracing different teachings and learning, as I am always a true scholar at heart, I love to learn and I love to try things out for myself first, nephropathy, herbal-ism, conscious eating, alternative holistic healing, sacred ancient teachings, as well as different cultures and rituals, have always been my most captivating of topics.
I love nature and plant medicine, of all sorts, along side, body, mind teachings, spiritual connection and how everything we need comes from the universe and nature and we are all capable of reaching a state of equilibrium and connection within ourselves through it, we truly can be our own healers.
But to access these great gifts, we need to liberate ourselves to a level of alignment inside and out. This is where I found Ayurveda, to guide me through some of my own darkest moments, to open up that space inside of myself, where all my personal struggles slowly started to untangle, physically, spiritually and mentally.
After studying in India, first hand with these ancient teachings, now firmly standing in my almost mid 30’s, as an Ayurvedic practitioner, feeling healthier and happier in my body, mind and soul, then ever before, started where I think a lot of these paths do, with yoga.
Yet yoga is not a typical therapeutic science. It is rather a teaching on the liberation of the soul through the integration of consciousness, mind and body.
The benefits of its, let’s call them side effects, is great. However, the main goal is the awareness of the soul, but we also receive wonderful “side effects” such as health & peace.
It is necessary not just to apply asanas as a type of healing gymnastics, but to adopt and apply correctly the possibilities for internal healing of diseases and to use diets, herbs and other characteristic beneficial means.
We need a medical system that not only fixes us physically but also treats us on a mental, psychological and emotional level. Such a system already exists - Ayurveda, and that’s why I want to share this with all of you.
