A Sanskrit word, Ayurveda means the science of life, or the knowledge of longevity. Its aim is a life well lived - an unending succession of "good days". According to Ayurveda, living well is only possible when the mind and body are in harmony with one's soul and the universe. Spiritual health is dependent on the ability to live in harmony with the external universe; emotional health depends on the ability to live in harmony with oneself.
To be able to balance yourself and achieve true harmony you must learn what type of person you are and how you can redress your own imbalances through changes to your lifestyle. Jane Alexander will show you exactly what you should change or add to your life, and how. She will help you to create your inner harmony, and achieve your own contentment, well-being and balance.
