The word Yoga literally translates from Sanskrit (the language of the veda), to English as meaning “Union” of consciousness, when there is perfect communication between the mind and the body. This union of consciousness is attainable through mediation. The physical poses called Yoga today are part of ancient Yoga, their role is to prepare the body for meditation.

The terms Ayurveda and Yoga both come from the ancient vedic tradition. In order to understand how Yoga relates to Ayurveda it is first necessary to understand the true meaning of both Yoga and Ayurveda. Ayurveda is usually associated with healing, healing by creating balance where balance had been lost. However Ayurveda offers more than just healing. Correctly performed Ayurveda balances both the mind and the body simultaneously so that Yoga (Union) can easily be experienced.

Practice of Yoga (both physical poses and meditation) is also an important part of achieving perfect balance through Ayurveda. The different Ayurvedic treatments (whilst always valuable to everyone) do not provide their full potential until the physiology is first refined through practice of meditation (Yoga). So Yoga and Ayurveda work together, Ayurveda purifies the body and enhances the experience of Yoga practice, then the Yoga practice refines the mind and the body so that Ayurvedic medicines and treatments can offer their full potential.
