Yoga, as well as Ayurveda, has its root in the Indian philosophy. It is considered as a part of Ayurveda. During Yoga practice, the focus is to get rid of all thoughts and judgments. Another well-known definition is “comprehensive union”. Just like people differ in temperament and appearance, there are versatile possibilities to practice Yoga for every individual.
Yoga focuses on the human’s own activeness which shall be supported by the aid of physical exercises (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and Meditation. A kind of strength and control of consciousness is being developed which helps to maintain an inner order within the various influences of life. Ayurveda, as well as Yoga, considers the consciousness as primary power of life which controls everything.

AYURVEDA & YOGA
- Ayurveda and Yoga are sister vedic sciences that have been united for thousands of years for the healing of body, mind and consciousness.
- Generally speaking, Ayurveda deals more with health of the body, while yoga deals with purifying the mind and consciousness, but in reality they complement and embrace each other.
- Ayurveda and Yoga both emphasize cleansing of the body for health and support of spiritual practices.
- Their methods are similar and work by expelling excess dosha and ama, or toxins, using the body’s natural routes of elimination.
