Yoga and Ayurveda were inspired and developed by the great sages of ancient India, over 5000 years ago. Both were created to keep the body and mind strong, allowing people to focus on the really important job of finding their true purpose. Though both sciences are very old, neither are ‘primitive’. Much of their advice is founded on common sense, and has much to teach us about finding balance in today’s busy world.
