Sure, it seems a little ambitious. But what worthwhile goal isn’t?
Our story is a familiar one. Girl meets Ayurveda and it changes the course of her life. For Founder Liz Stites, what started on a whim to study ancient teachings evolved into a passion for helping others lead healthy, vibrant lives. She conceived of a practical approach to implementing daily diet and lifestyle changes that draws on the wisdom of Ayurveda and the tendencies of human nature. From her “Back to Basics” vision, Ayureka was born.
To date, no science has amassed a more significant body of knowledge on personal wellbeing than Ayurveda. As a comprehensive system of health, it maintains that the best tools for personal alignment are the ones found in your kitchen, daily routine and local farmer’s market. Wholesome food and smart lifestyle choices are what enable your natural intelligence to call the shots.
Despite its profound common sense, Ayurveda can be a little daunting to newcomers. As “non-purists,” we examine its texts in a present-day context. Ayureka leverages modern science to help explain ancient wisdom that has endured over thousands of years. We try to keep this site, our workshops and all other communication as realistic and practical as possible. We serve these teachings from a fresh and new perspective in digestible, bite-sized pieces.
Finding your unique path to wellbeing is a process in itself. And we know firsthand that it is not easy to integrate Ayurveda into your life. We advocate that you move at the pace works best for you. Small steps add-up. Our supportive community is always on hand to aid you along the way. We hope to empower you to live a better life through the food you eat and the care you give yourself—and the world around you.
When you make a commitment to give your natural intelligence what it needs, vibrant living is within reach. Take charge of your own wellbeing. Let Ayureka help you go there. Enjoy our blogs.
