Bagus Jati hopes to introduce you to a small but very important aspect of the science of healing through a variety of Ayurvedic practices. Are you a fiery Pitta, an airy Vata, or earthy Kapha? Discover your dosha and have a yoga plan tailor-made to suit your individual type.
Enjoy a private two-hour Ayurvedic inspired yoga lesson and have a personalized plan created for you to practice at home offering you valuable advice on diet, lifestyle, and yoga practices to enable you to improve your well-being. Ayurveda gives people tools for living that everyone can apply to every aspect of their lives.
Yoga nourishes you on every level and it is equally important to feed the body, mind, and spirit. Bagus Jati concentrates on the practice of asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breath control), and dhyana (meditation). Through the use of the Hatha yoga system, Bagus Jati invites you to start and continue your yogic journey with them and experience feelings of total well being, release feelings of happiness, love, laughter, harmony and fun, and achieve life true success, that of a peaceful mind.
The word Ayurveda is made up of two Sanskrit words. The Ayu and Veda. Ayu means life and Veda means knowledge. Thus, Ayurveda can be thought of as the complete knowledge of life. Ayurveda understands the world in energetic terms and seeks to balance the three main energies in the body and mind called the three doshas.
The science of Ayurveda states people are governed by a combined effort of the 5 elements, earth, fire, water, air, and ether, and the imbalance of these elements within the system can change people's physical, mental, and emotional being. Sometimes anger rises (fire), emotions pour (water), lethargy looms (earth), nerves fray (air), and thoughts scatter (ether).
Knowing your individual Dosha, Kapha, Pitta, Vata is essential knowledge for improving your life and longevity. Once your dosha is determined, your diet can be altered, yoga asana practiced, and lifestyle adjusted to bring your body, mind, and spirit back into harmony.
