Ayurveda is the sister science of yoga. Both disciplines arose thousands of years ago from the ancient texts of India known as the Vedas. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which means the science of life, (Ayur means “life” + Veda which means “science” or “knowledge”).

The Ayurvedic system allows for the uniqueness of each individual. It divides people into body types and provides a framework with which to choose correct diet, proper exercise, breathing techniques, and much more that we in the West seldom pay attention to in our daily routines. Ayurveda is a journey to wellness through balance. Ayurveda empowers the individual to take care of themselves!

Ayurvedic body types are known as doshas. There are a number of ways to determine your dosha type. At Fern Life Center you will have the opportunity to fill out a “dosha assessment.” Your initial consultation will last about an hour and will include a history intake, physical examination, (including in-depth pulse diagnosis), assessment, and a treatment plan.
