You CAN make small changes and sync personal patterns with circadian rhythms to reverse engineer habits which in turn lead to a healthier body and a better aging experience.
Circadian Rhythms are, essentially, daily cycles of biological activity based on a 24-hour period and influenced by regular variations in the environment, such as the alternation of night and day.
Circadian rhythms can influence sleep-wake cycles, hormone release, body temperature and other important bodily functions. They have been linked to various sleep disorders, such as insomnia. Abnormal circadian rhythms have also been associated with obesity, diabetes, depression, bipolar disorder and seasonal affective disorder.
The importance of maintaining your circadian rhythms is well indicated by facts like World Health Organization’s recognition of night shifts as a possible cause of cancer. Research also shows how the times at which we eat contribute to the disruption of our circadian rhythms.
If we pay attention to our cycles then we see bio rhythms influence who we are. If we are in alignment with the rhythms then we experience life more deeply and with attunement. If we ignore them, we are out of step. So much of health is living in rhythm.
The reality is that the more we are in rhythm, the more we are in alignment, the more energy passes through us, the more vibrant, joyful, connected, vibrant and abundant we are.
Long before any of these studies were conducted and discoveries were made, ancient sciences talked about these rhythms, about balance and synchronicity with nature, about being in alignment with oneself.
Through disciplined sleep routines, prescribed eating, cleansing and self-care practices and recommended exercise, Ayurveda and Yoga give you several tools to balance and restore your circadian rhythms.
The sister sciences of Yoga and Ayurveda delved into those unseen, intangible territories which opened up a far “up-levelled" experience of wellbeing- and yet, they were always rooted in the very physical, the daily, the practical aspects of life.
And this is what the Energetics of Ayurveda, an Ayurvedic understanding through your yoga practice and a yogic perspective of the Ayurvedic Science gives you-
Ayurvedic theory is both organic and sophisticated; it unpacks the energetic perspective of what causes imbalances and engenders disease.
Recognizing the relationship of those habits which court disease is only half of the equation. Updating habits in real time is the crux and strategy of habit evolution.
It is to help you practice these habits that are good for you that today, The Ayurveda Experience proudly presents to you-
