The concept of balance is simple and profound and we first encounter it when learn to walk. It is at the heart of some of the greatest healing systems like yoga, ayurveda and Chinese medicine.
Health is found in a balanced life, a balance between the mind and the body, work and rest, a balanced diet and a balance of the five elements – ether, air, water, fire and earth – that make up the physical body and the environment. As the mind and emotions becomes balanced, a sense of perspective is gained, resulting in a feeling of peace.
We get blown off course sometimes and loose our balance. The art of recuperation is the concept of balance in our lives. Yoga and Ayurveda help us to return to a point of balance.
The breathwork, meditation, sound, yoga and wholesome nutrition can help people live healthy lives and cultivate healthy communities and help themselves and others heal from physical and emotional ailments.
“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.” Henri Matisse
