Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living
ThaiVedic Yoga brings together some of the most effective healing arts in the world today – Ayurveda, Thai Yoga Massage and Yoga – a truly integrated holistic system to help restore health and harmony.
Translated as the science or knowledge of life, Ayurveda is a holistic system which originated in India more than 5,000 years ago. It aims to create balanced health and harmony within the body both physically and emotionally. Preventative and curative, it helps us achieve our best state of health and is one of the most powerful systems of healing. It is called the Science of Life because it tells us which substances, qualities and actions will enhance our lives and which will not.
“Health is Wealth” Health is achieved through increasing our knowledge and expanding our awareness. We must learn how to live in harmony with our inner and outer nature, and not always be dependent on someone to give us a “quick fix” pill.
What will my ThaiVedic Yoga session look like?
We will have a good chat about what bought you to me. We may do a simple questionaire to give an Ayurvedic overview of your current health, and we will discuss what therapies will best suit you in the moment. This can include all the therapies I offer including Yoga, massage, meditation and relaxation techniques. No two sessions are the same, just as there is no one quite like you! We will determine the kind of lifestyle that is balancing and healthy for you at this time in your life, including the sorts of food you should eat and the amount and type of exercise you should do.

More about Ayurveda….. One of the principles of Ayurveda is that each of us is born with a distinct constitution or Dosha – a particular combination of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha that is completely unique to each of us.
The Doshas are made up of the 5 elements.
Here is a brief description of the Doshas;
Vata is the energy of Ether and Air
Movement and impulse, creativity and connection. It governs breath, heartbeat, movement, the nervous system, sensory perception, communication, our capacity for joy and expansive consciousness.
Pitta is the energy of Fire and Water
Digestion and transformation. It governs appetite, digestion, absorption, assimilation, intelligence, charisma, courage, and ambition.
kapha is the energy of Water and Earth
Structure and cohesiveness, grounding and stability. It governs nourishment, growth, lubrication, regeneration, fluid balance, fat regulation, strength, stamina, memory, our ability to feel compassion and contentment.
Everybody has all three doshas. But different individuals have different proportions of each one, and most of us are predominant in one or two of them.
Although your Dosha type is determined at the moment of conception, they are constantly shifting within the body throughout our lives. Just as the five basic elements fluctuate within nature as in the change of the seasons, so these elements will also fluctuate within the body. Dosha dominance changes with age, time of day, your current life challenges and the seasons etc…
When we have an excess of a Dosha, it indicates that Vata, Pitta or Kapha have shifted from their natural balanced state, and this imbalance is what contributes to ill health and the disease process. Our work here is to determine the imbalance and use massage therapy, Yoga and lifestyle practices to help restore health and harmony.

If you would like to learn more about Ayurveda I recommend reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra as a great beginners guide! You will probably already be familiar with many of the concepts of Ayurveda, as these have filtered down through the ages and cultures as common sense ways of living.
Your first consultation will take at least 2.5 hours so please allow plenty of time. Once we have had a good look at your overall health from an Ayurvedic perspective, further appointments can be shorter.
