Yoga and ayurveda are two interrelated branches of vedic knowledge that are all encompassing.
While yoga has spiritual benefits, ayurveda works for the physical well-being of a body, mind and soul.
Yoga and ayurveda are considered as sister sciences that developed together and continue to influence each other, they are an integral part of vedic knowledge which states that all the universe is oneself and cosmic knowledge lies within our own minds and hearts.Yoga and ayurveda, as vedic disciplines, work together to enhance benefits on all levels.
They together form a comprehensive approach for optimal health, vitality and greater awareness. They reveal the secret power of the body, breath, senses, mind and chakras and unfold transformational methods to work on them through diet, herbs, asana, pranayama and meditation.
Understanding the respective roles of ayurveda and yoga in the vedic system is very important because they are not merely two separate disciplines but are also related healing disciplines of India. Both yoga and ayurveda have their unique place and function, but each overlaps into the other on various levels.
The sanskrit term ‘yoga’ translates to ‘union’ or ‘to join together’, the spiritual union of mind and soul in peace, which results in the balancing out of all the three doshas. The different poses of yoga have different effects on the body and mind, it effectively calms the mind down and releases the body of the stress.
The knowledge of ayurveda provides tremendous support to yoga practice, because without a foundation in ayurvedic knowledge, yoga can become just physical exercise. Whereas, yoga aims at cleansing the channels of your body with different postures, doing that without using the ayurvedic principles to remove digestive impurities is like hopping on one leg.
