Yoga is sanskrit for, “listen”. It is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice which originated in India. There is a broad variety of schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Among the most well-known types of yoga are Hatha yoga and Rāja yoga.
The origins of yoga have been speculated to date back to pre-Vedic Indian traditions, and most likely developed around the sixth and fifth centuries BC. Yoga gurus from India later introduced yoga to the west. In Indian traditions, yoga is more than physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual core around mindfulness.
Practising yoga in India is a special experience. The Backwaters in Kerala, in, ‘God’s own Country,’ provided an inspiring environment for a daily morning practise.
The Sanskrit word ‘Ayur’ means life and Vastra means dress. Ayurvastra is a garment that ensures better health and a longer life.
“Ayurvastra” is based on the Ayurvedic principle that regular contact with a cloth made from the yarns infused with organic herbs and medicinal plant extracts will relieve metabolic disorders and threads a new line of healthy living.
It is made of 100 per cent pure cotton or silk handloom fabric made out of dyes using various ayurvedic herbs. It can be used as Ayurvedic treatment for diseases like diabetes, skin infections, hypertension, asthma, arthritis and also for boosting immunity. Who knew that clothes can have such a big influence on your health!
