DESCRIPTION

An empowering guide to finding balance and restoring health in mind, body, and soul

Ayurveda teaches us that true health is our birthright, and that by artfully adapting to the rhythms of nature, we can bring ourselves back into balance and experience optimal well-being. Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom is a groundbreaking work within the field of holistic health and traditional yoga, written by internationally renowned Ayurvedic healer, teacher, and scholar Acharya Shunya.

Raised in a distinguished lineage of Vedic mystics and healers, Shunya learned the ancient art of Ayurveda directly from her grandfather, a well-known healer in Northern India. Here, she presents both an engaging narrative of her unique education, as well as a complete encyclopedia of Ayurvedic practices, recipes, and knowledge.

With Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom, Shunya maintains the integrity of Ayurveda’s traditional teachings while showing us how to integrate them into our modern lifestyles. Through her in-depth teachings, we learn to live in a way that supports our greatest health through daily ritual, nourishing food, spiritual practice, and self-care. Highlights include:

  • Detailed instructions for a nourishing daily routine, organized by time of day and aligned with seasonal changes
  • Clear, accessible guidance in the basic principles of Ayurveda, as transmitted through an uninterrupted lineage of Ayurvedic healers
  • Dozens of traditional recipes, along with advice for structuring your meals according to the season, your constitution, and your unique health needs
  • A treasury of lifestyle teachings and wellness practices—meditation and pranayama, exercise and yoga, connecting with nature, rituals for self-care and pleasure, daily cleansing routines, and working with the doshas (energetic body types)
  • An approach to healing both practical and spiritual—restore your body to health with holistic lifestyle guidance, rather than a list of rigid rules or do’s and don’ts
  • Beauty routines and rituals, including recipes for homemade scrubs, oil blends, gargles, and more
  • How modern lifestyles contribute to chronic disease, and how to restore vital health through Ayurveda
  • Experience greater physical energy, more joy, better sleep, increased sexual pleasure, improved digestion, stronger immunity, and many other benefits in mind, body, and soul

“This book that you are holding in your hand has the potential to change your state of health for the better, permanently,” writes Shunya. “Health is not a probability that you may achieve. It is a reality, an underlying natural state of being.”

Whether you’re looking for help with a specific health concern, or if you’d simply like to improve your overall well-being, in Ayurveda Lifestyle Wisdom you’ll find a treasury of Ayurvedic lifestyle teachings and wellness practices for every part of your day.

A bit too simplistic

As a Dr I have studied this subject for 20 years. This could be good a basic Into but it leaves out much of the important information and does not give a good complimentary comparison to other health systems which is so important for balance so it is not really complete.

The Heart of the Science

As I read this book, the heartfelt stories of Acharya Shunya learning the principles of Ayurveda as a child from her grandfather really open me up to the subject. Then the technical explanations and great recipes go in to a much deeper place and I feel empowered to try them out and make the changes in my own lifestyle to align more with Ayurveda's wisdom.

I feel this book is great for those who already know about Ayurveda to connect with it from a deeper heartfelt and spiritual place, as well as those just getting into it for a comprehensive and digestible introduction.

A must-read simple User Manual for the human body

While I’m still making my way through the book, I wanted to take a moment to share my thoughts.

This is a must read - If you, like me, are concerned about our healthcare system and believe that everyone should take responsibility for their own health.

This is a must read – If even you don’t spend much time thinking about health, because you will be glad you did.

This is a must read – If you are a lover of nature and believe in living in sync with macrocosm

This is a must read – If you are tired of the information overload from the media on the latest super foods/fads etc. and are looking for simple time-tested health tips to incorporate in your daily routine.

This is essentially an owner’s manual for the human body.

Now back to more deeper reading.

An evocative and informative resource to treasure

This book reads like sitting down with the author and having a series of deeply engaging and memorable conversations. It is by far the best resource I have found on understanding Ayurveda and how it is a powerful, accessible, and uplifting lifestyle.

While the book is rich with recipes, remedies, and wise counsel on how to be healthy and happy, what I found outstanding and absolutely unique is how the context for each section is created through evocative and deeply informative stories from the author's young days studying with her grandfather, who was a learned yogi and insightful traditional healer. These stories are vivid, endearing, and deeply spiritual, and invite the reader to contemplate and experience the many dimensions of the state of health that the author and Ayurveda focus on.

The author then illustrates how these same teachings are so beneficial and surprisingly easy to apply for those of us who live in Western cities and not on the banks of holy river in the India of a generation or two ago. I found the stories of the author's students very encouraging: how their health and state of mind improved dramatically just by applying this knowledge one step at a time.

The style of the book is inviting and fascinating to read, and consistently positive - quite a feat to maintain in a long chapter on constipation and diarrhea! The book has a wealth of very accessible advice laid out in ways I know I'll be able to keep referring to easily. The recipes are…

Self and Health Mastery through Ayurveda

This is an excellent book for newbies and veterans of Ayurveda. Well organized and easy to read. The book is formatted in a way that makes a dense subject easy to understand with diagrams, pictures, tables, ... It's so packed with information (like a textbook) but easy to use as a reference; easy to find a particular topic and flip to it.

Read the entire book, but keep it around for quick access to specific topics. The content in this book is among the most accurate and comprehensive I've ever seen on Ayurveda. I highly recommend it if you've got any life issues you'd like to get sorted out. The how-to instructions for creating a balanced and vibrant life is in this book.
