What is Ayurveda?
Ayur – Life
Veda – wisdom/knowledge/science
Rooted in India's most cherished scriptures known as the Vedas, Ayurveda is the ancient Indian science of preventative health and healing and also a philosophy of living. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of creating and maintaining positive health. It’s focus is on preventing the imbalances that lead to disease. It respects the uniqueness of the individual and considers physical, psychological, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, familial, social, environmental & universal levels. Physical dis-eases are due to engaging in excessive use of our senses, improper eating, or ignoring the cycles of the seasons or our age. Ayurveda cures by getting to the root cause of the dis-ease instead of merely treating the symptoms and then reestablishes balance to our system.
What makes Ayurveda special?
Sama dosha sama agnishcha samadhatu mala kriyaha |
Prasanna atma indriyamanah swastha iti abhidheeyate ||
Health is the state of complete harmony and balance of functional principles (dosha), digestive and metabolic fires (agni), tissues (dhatus) and elimination of wastes (mala) with pleasant and vibrant soul, mind and sense.

"I had a private session with Minerva at a time in my life when I needed it most, she walked me through an intense healing session. The session was very intimate. Minerva took her time with me and walked me through the healing. She would give my body time to process what was happening and helped me listen to what my body needed at that time. It was an incredible feeling to finally feel myself healing from the inside through yoga, breathing exercises and meditation. Once my session was over I felt a relief, a physical and emotional relief. During that session, I let go of a pain that I was carrying. Thank you Minerva for your help and dedication to help me understand what my body and soul needs to heal. I highly recommend her, she will take her time with you and your needs."
