Better Living through Ayurveda

You have made a decision to live better and be healthier, but how will you get there? There are so many options.

“What do I choose? What is going to work for me?”

What typically happens is that we try something we found online or a suggestion from a friend and start to feel great! Temporarily.

One of the reasons why these methods might only provide fleeting relief is that they are not actually designed for you as your unique self or “constitution”. In Ayurveda, we call this your “prakriti”.

Knowing your constitution is the first step to using Ayurveda as your one-stop shop for your happier, healthy life journey.

If you have never had the opportunity to consult an ayurvedic practitioner, you might find filling out an Ayurveda constitution questionnaire a great place to start.

Ayurveda Health Counsellor and Centre YTT instructor Natasha (Jyoti) Samson, offers a free Constitution Questionnaire that anyone can take in just a few minutes.
