"Exercise that's done strictly for its own physical sake, divorced from the emotions and human spirit, isn't satisfying, isn't fun, and eventually fails. To feel good enough to last a lifetime, an exercise regimen must satisfy the heart and soul."

Ayurveda and exercise

Visit my holistic health site for my article on Ayurveda and Exercise - Coaching from the ancient Science of Life.

Ayurveda is the health care system of the ancient Vedic Tradition of India and is the world’s oldest and most complete system of natural medicine. The aim of Ayurveda is to enliven and maintain the body's natural healing mechanisms.

Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf, medical doctor and expert in Maharishi Ayurveda, specializes in women's health. She says, "Exercise is at least part of the answer to so many problems women commonly have — It improves sleep, lifts mood, reduces anxiety, gives your complexion a healthy glow, boosts energy, improves metabolism and helps control weight. It also improves your memory and keeps your brain young, not to mention tones your muscles and gives you a great looking body!"

"It does this all by helping the body's intelligence do it's job better — move the lymph, clear the toxins, digest, circulate nourishment to the tissues, and clear the mind of stress and clutter. It's amazing what being naturally active does for the body. We were born to move, not sit at desks!"
