Ayurveda Yoga at Ananda in the Himalayas

Ananda - in the Himalayas

Effectively address aging issues with Ayurveda.

Ayurveda divides human life into—childhood (up to the age 16 years); youth and middle age (from 16 to 60 years (charaka) or 70 years (sushruta); and old age, wherein after 60–70 years the body elements, sense organs, strength and so forth begin to decay.

While describing aging, Ayurveda takes in consideration Prana (life energy that performs respiration, oxygenation and circulation). It governs two other subtle essence ojas and tejas. Ojas (the essence of the sevendhatus or bodily tissues) is responsible for the auto-immune system and mental intelligence, it is necessary for longevity. Displaced ojas creates the kapha-related disorders and decreased ojas creates vata-related reactions. Tejas (the essence of a very subtle fire or energy) governs metabolism through the enzyme system. Agni (central fire or energy source in the body) promotes digestion, absorption and assimilation of food. Tejas is necessary for the nourishing and transformation of each dhatu. Aggravated tejas, burns away ojas reducing immunity and over stimulating pranic activity.

Aggravated prana produces degenerative disorders in the dhatus. Lack of tejas results in over production of unhealthy tissue and obstructs the flow of pranic energy. It is important for longevity that prana, ojas and tejas remain in balance.

The tridosha theory (http://www.anandaspa.com/spa/ayurvedic-experiences.html) play a very important role in the maintenance of cellular health and longevity. Kapha maintains longevity on the cellular level. Pitta governs digestion and nutrition. Vata, which is closely related to pranic life energy, governs all life functions. Proper diet, exercise and lifestyle can create a balance among these three subtle essences, ensuring long life.

Ayurveda recommends the following five elements that must form part of a senior citizen’s routine:

• Morning Yoga or stretching. Stiffness is one of important issue that has to be taken care.
• Drinking lots of water, herbal teas etc. Keep hydrated well to prevent dryness issues.
• External oil application followed by warm shower once or twice a week, to keep circulation better and joints nourished.
• Eat lightly in general especially after sunset. Light food in Ayurveda means less of grains and no animal products.
• Do fasting once a week to keep metabolism strong and body light. You may have fruits and vegetables on the fasting day, but strictly avoid all grains and animal products that day.
