About

Emma was born and raised in France. She discovered the science of Ayurveda whilst undertaking her yoga teacher training in 2016. As she has always been interested in well-being and nutrition, she was immediately drawn to Ayurveda. It enabled her to fully understand her own body and its needs, in terms of lifestyle and diet. 

Emma strongly believes in the role of karma, timing and the effects of environmental factors on one’s balance. As these play an integral part of Ayurveda, it seemed natural for Emma to commence her journey to fully grasp the power of this science. 

 

Emma has completed her first year in Ayurveda Lifestyle and Nutrition, passing with distinction. She is now part of the Association of the Ayurvedic Practitioners UK. She is currently undertaking her second year in Ayurveda Practitioner’s course.

 

Emma is also a Vinyasa and Yin yoga teacher. Thanks to her Ayurvedic knowledge, she is able to fully adapt to her student’s individual needs and to offer a practice that will improve their balance.

What is Ayurveda ?

The Sanskrit term Ayurveda is composed of ayus which means life and veda which means knowledge. Ayurveda is thus the Science of Life. 

It is a system of medicine guided by the principle that the mind is inextricably connected to the body. The overall aim of Ayurveda is to apply knowledge surrounding health an disease to restore balance of unbalanced states of living beings. 

 

The principles

Ayurveda defines physiology in terms of three forces called doshas which are made up of five elements (mahabhutas) - earth, fire, water, air and ether. The doshas are :  

  • Vata which governs the physiology of motion in the body,

  • Pitta which governs the physiology of metabolism,

  • Kapha which governs the physiology of structure.

All three doshas govern the biological, psychological and physio-pathological functions of the body, mind and consciousness. Each person has all three of these doshas within them. For example,  they are responsible for the arising of natural urges and for individual preferences in foods: their flavours, temperatures and so on.

 

When the three dosha are in their natural proportions, there is balance. At the moment of conception, this balance defines what Ayurveda calls one's constitution or "prakruti". However, these doshas also fluctuate in accordance with how we live our lives, influenced by experiences and the environment. As the doshas increase or decrease, they can cause different conditions in the body and mind. This state is called "vikruti". By understanding a person’s vikruti (nature of the imbalance) and what aspects of their environment have contributed to the disturbance, Ayurveda’s goal is to restore balance. 

Disorders and imbalances

In Ayurveda, when we talk about the vikruti of a patient, we are referring to the current state of the three doshas and how they are expressing themselves in the body and mind. 

Our goal is to understand our patients vikruti and then understand what aspects of the patient’s diet/lifestyle have contributed to the disturbance. Once known, the goal is to correct this environment. In this context, the environment not only refers to what the person takes through their five sense but also their lifestyle. 

Regardless of a person's constitution, a person can have an imbalance in any dosha.
