Ayurveda is a traditional Indian philosophy, which recommends a mindful lifestyle and a holistic approach to mind and soul as the key to achieving spiritual balance.

Ayurveda has a history of over 3,000 years of experience to share with us, which can be just as relevant in our modern world. YOGI TEA® is based on these ancient Ayurvedic traditions, tailored to the requirements and the spiritual wellbeing of people of today.

Ayurveda is:

Applied knowledge – Ayurveda means “Knowledge (Veda) of Life (Ayur)”, the knowledge of the skill of living a life in spiritual balance and wellbeing.

Ancient – the earliest recorded examples date back to 1,500 years before the start of the Christian era.

Universal – the knowledge of the nature of people is seen as the shared asset of all peoples and cultures.

Practical – fulfilment is defined as a practical, active transformation of lifestyle.

Holistic – it believes the mind and soul of the person to be part of a whole.

Balance – it argues that everything centres on the spiritual balance of the individual.

Individual – every person is seen as unique and is seen and advised according to their unique history and constitution.

Preventative – it shows methods for remaining in spiritual balance in the long term.

Experience – all recipes and recommendations are based on thousands of past examples.

Comprehensive – in addition to using over 5,000 herbs and spices, Ayurveda includes yoga, meditation, hydrotherapy, massage, astrology, surgery, as well as the use of precious stones, metals, music and dance. It is particularly the knowledge of a balanced diet that is of crucial importance in the teaching of Ayurveda.
