Overview

An empowering guide to finding balance and restoring health in mind, body, and soul

Ayurveda teaches us that true health is our birthright--and that by artfully adapting to the rhythms of nature, we can bring ourselves back into balance and experience optimal well-being. Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom is a groundbreaking work within the field of holistic health and traditional yoga, written by internationally renowned Ayurvedic healer, teacher, and scholar Acharya Shunya.

Raised in a distinguished lineage of Vedic mystics and healers, Shunya learned the ancient art of Ayurveda directly from her grandfather, a well-known healer in Northern India. Here, she presents both an engaging narrative of her unique education, as well as a complete encyclopedia of Ayurvedic practices, recipes, and knowledge.

With Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom, Shunya maintains the integrity of Ayurveda's traditional teachings while showing us how to integrate them into our modern lifestyles. Through her in-depth teachings, we learn to live in a way that supports our greatest health through daily ritual, nourishing food, spiritual practice, and self-care. Highlights include:

- Detailed instructions for a nourishing daily routine, organized by time of day and aligned with seasonal changes

- Clear, accessible guidance in the basic principles of Ayurveda, as transmitted through an uninterrupted lineage of Ayurvedic healers

- Dozens of traditional recipes, along with advice for structuring your meals according to the season, your constitution, and your unique health needs

- A treasury of lifestyle teachings and wellness practices--meditation and pranayama, exercise and yoga, connecting with nature, rituals for self-care and pleasure, daily cleansing routines, and working with the doshas (energetic body types)

- An approach to healing both practical and spiritual--restore your body to health with holistic lifestyle guidance, rather than a list of rigid rules or do's and don'ts

- Beauty routines and rituals, including recipes for homemade scrubs, oil blends, gargles, and more

- How modern lifestyles contribute to chronic disease, and how to restore vital health through Ayurveda

- Experience greater physical energy, more joy, better sleep, increased sexual pleasure, improved digestion, stronger immunity, and many other benefits in mind, body, and soul

"This book that you are holding in your hand has the potential to change your state of health for the better, permanently," writes Shunya. "Health is not a probability that you may achieve. It is a reality, an underlying natural state of being."

Whether you're looking for help with a specific health concern, or if you'd simply like to improve your overall well-being, in Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom you'll finda treasury of Ayurvedic lifestyle teachings and wellness practices for every part of your day.

Shunya, president of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, says it was her karma to write an authoritative bible of sorts on Ayurvedic wisdom. Raised in India, Shunya studied Ayurveda under the tutelage of her grandfather, who was born in 1900 and served as his towns Ayurvedic guide; throughout this informative text she weaves poignant stories and lessons learned from her highly esteemed relative and advisor. Ayurveda, Shunya explains, is a 5,000-year-old system that covers such topics as lifestyle, food, health, spirituality, meditation, and yoga. Her focus is on applying the ancient principles to modern life and she includes selected case histories from clients and students who believe Ayurveda helped them resolve a variety of issues (e.g., eating disorders, stress). Despite the range of applications Shunya cites, she cautions that Ayurveda is not one size fits all, and gives readers a number of guidelines. Shunya writes with passion and expertise; newcomers to Ayurveda will receive a comprehensive education, and long-standing practitioners can also delve more deeply into this wellspring of knowledge. This is an important addition to a holistic approach to health that readers will want to refer to time and again. (Feb.)
