Ayurveda is a powerful holistic healing science, with its origins in ancient India. However, is a vegan version of ayurveda possible?

“We’re actually a form of energy. So Ayurveda mentions this energy. We are made up of five Koshas, these circles of energy around us. It’s something that we cannot see, but it is palpable. You can feel it…So it’s not just about good food. It’s also about the happiness, it’s about the good deeds that we need to do. We need to exercise empathy, kindness and compassion.”
