How Ayurveda Teaches you Nutritious food choices


Good food habits are not just some lessons that our elders teach us. These have been followed right from the times of the Indian Vedic history due to the medicinal value they had. Ayurveda has certain rules regarding food and nutrition and when taken in the right quantities and at the right time, food can help cure numerous ailments.

Sharing with all a few important food principles of Ayurveda –

Eat natural foods

According to Ayurveda, our bodies are intelligent enough to process natural foods. Therefore if you choose fresh fruit or whole grains and vegetables that are organically-grown it makes a lot of sense. We are made to digest and take benefit of natural foods so it is better to choose organic and unprocessed foods if you want to stay healthy and disease free.

Choose lots of fruits and vegetables

Ayurveda tells you to prefer bioavailable foods. Yes, this means that we should cook our veggies properly. Although raw fruits are easy to eat and digest, raw vegetables, on the other hand, may become difficult to process. Despite the fact that they may contain more nutritional value in the form of vitamins and nutrients, they can be a lot harder to metabolize for our bodies.

Understand your Agni

Apart from this fact, if you eat raw veggies for lunch, this gives your body plenty of time and energy to digest it because when the sun is up and high, our Agni (digestive machinery or fire) can work at its maximum potential. As the sun goes down, it mellows down and so should your food choices. So make sure to take lighter meals as the day is about to end to avoid any kind of doshas.

Choose the right spice

Ayurveda says that each one of your meals should contain all the 6 flavors: bitter, salty or savory, sour, sweet, astringent, and pungent. We all have a predominant dosha makeup and following are a few examples of what kind of flavors we would prefer based upon that:

Vata- heavy meals with sour and salty taste

Kapha- pungent meals

Pitta- sweet flavors

Learning Panchakarma – A Natural way for Detoxification



Having knowledge of Panchakarma is beneficial even for a common man. It is not just an Ayurvedic detox regimen; it is a way of life. Learning about Panchakarma is one of the most amazing gifts you could give yourself not just for the physical benefits it offers but for the mental balance it brings about.

Panchakarma means “five actions” in Sanskrit and it realigns our imbalances and cures our doshas (faults or bio-elements). In this time and age, we have become almost mechanical, working crazy shifts and not taking care of our body and mind. Above all this, we do not follow a balanced diet and often avoid exercising on a regular basis. This makes us prone to diseases and infections. As a result, toxins get accumulated in us that misalign and misbalance our body and mind further.

Let’s tell you about different types of Panchakarma treatments and massages and how it helps a person live disease-free life –

The Panchakarma Process:  Panchakarma treatments are divided into three phases of detoxifications:

  1. Purvakarma is preparation for cleansing
  2. Pradhankarma or Main course of Panchakarma consists of five cleansing procedures
  3. Pashchatkarma, or aftercare, are therapies applied after cleansing

Five main Panchakram technique

  1. Vamana (use of emetics): Artificial vomiting is induced using herbs. It is usually indicated for people with ‘Kapha’ (phlegm) disorders.
  2. Virechan (use of laxatives): Different purgatives are used depending upon a person’s constitution and disease. It is normally used to eliminate excessive Pitta (fire) from its site in the small intestines.
  1. Basti: A colon irrigation procedure to first cleanse the colon (Niruh Basti), and then restore (Asthapan) the function of the colon with medicated enemas.
  1. Nasya (Nasal administration): Medicinal oils or herbal mixtures are inhaled or used as drops (mixed with oils or ghee) to clear the congestion in the sinuses. It is also good for balancing the prana (air) in Vata.
  2. Rakta Mokshana (bloodletting): We recommend blood donations. Researchers at the Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City have found that non-smoking men who donated blood had a 30% reduced risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attack, bypass, and stroke than non-donors.

This impeccable cleanse is what makes The Panchakarma the best way to reset your body and make it physically, mentally and spiritually aligned again. And you or anyone hailing from the non-Ayurvedic background can learn and practice these Panchakarma treatments with the help of specially designed training modules of Ayuskama Rishikesh.

Dos and Don’ts for Yoga Sadhana

Yoga is one of the most beneficial practices and not just for your body but also for the heart and mind. Yoga practitioners are emotionally and intellectual more stable, calm and cheerful. Yoga is one of those regimes that keep you healthy as well as happy. No wonder, the whole world is falling in love with Yoga.
As more and more people start joining yoga classes or yoga training courses and retreats, we enlighten yoga enthusiasts about some Dos and Don’ts related to Yoga. Take a look –


1. It’s more beneficial if you practice yoga early morning. Evening time is also fine but doing yoga post meal times is not recommended. The basic rule is to practice yoga empty stomach.
2. Try to do Yoga outdoors as inhaling fresh air during asanas and pranayama would do wonders to your body and mind. For people living in cities, doing yoga outdoors could be a challenge so they can do it in a spacious well-ventilated room.
3. It is better to do yoga on a mat or carpet or blanket. Doing asanas like headstand on the cemented floor could be dangerous; so avoid them.
4. Begin yoga practice with pranayama and stretching; end the yoga session with meditation.


1. Do not practice yoga in a hurry. Yoga is not about holding on; it is about letting go of all fears and anxiety so never ever do asanas in a hurry because Yoga is different from gym exercises.
2. Do not force your body to stretch or do any posture against your body’s will. Follow the rhythm of your body and reach the level of perfection slowly.
3. Do not practice tough asanas or postures without expert guidance. If you do it wrong you might end up hurting your muscles or getting a sprain.
4. Do not take shower immediately after yoga practice. Make sure you give your body time to warm up and cool down.
Yoga is both an art as well as science. It is always better to take an expert consultation while practicing yoga. You can email us your doubts and questions about yoga practice at…..

Know About Panchakarma ( Natural Detox )










Panchakarma, as the name implies, is about 5 therapeutic procedures that are meant to detoxify your body. So whether the culprit is your sadistic lifestyle or junk food love or too much work stress; whatever toxins you have accumulated in your body, you can get rid of them all with Panchakarma. Isn’t it a good and comforting way to feel hale and hearty? Yes, it certainly is. Let us tell you a few more amazing things about Panchakarma –

1. Panchakarma is a tailor-made treatment where the expert Vaid will recommend you
different treatment and concoctions based on Nadi Pariksha and your body Prakriti.
Panchakarma does not follow ‘One size fits all’ approach.
2. Abhyangam (body massage with Ayurvedic oil), Swedanam (causing sweating) and
Shirodhara (pouring medicated oil or concoctions over the head) are ancillary
procedures of Panchakarma which are commonly mistaken as main procedures.
3. In case, a person is suffering from some chronic disease, Panchakarma treatment alone
will not suffice. Panchakarma therapies cleanse the body and get rid of toxins thus
making the body more receptive to Ayurvedic medicines.
4. Therapies like Vamana and Nasya bring a balance in case of Kapha dosha while Virechan
and Raktamokshana are recommended when the body has Pitta imbalance.
5. Raktamokshana is one of the lesser known Panchakarma therapies whereby therapeutic
withdrawal of blood is done to remove excess pitta-related ama from the blood. This is
very beneficial to treat skin or hair disorder.
6. Of all the Panchakarma therapies, Basti is considered the most powerful as it aims to
purify and rejuvenate the colon. Ayurveda focuses on the importance of colon as it
plays an important role in the absorption of nutrients.
7. Basti is very different from Enemas as it also nourishes the tissues and removes toxins
while Enema only cleanses the colon.
8. For availing the maximum benefit of Panchakarma, it is advised to take the treatment
for at least two weeks or maximum for a period of 40 days.

9. Panchakarma gives holistic benefits when you spend some time on doing meditation
and yoga in the days you take Panchakarma treatment.
10. When done under expert supervision, Panchakarma treatments also strengthen you
emotionally and intellectually.
In case you wish to know more about Panchakarma or enroll for the best Panchakarma
the training program in Rishikesh, you can enroll with Ayuskama Rishikesh, the most trusted
name in Yoga and Ayurveda training in Rishikesh.

Rejuvenate Yourself with Yoga

Almost everyone makes fitness and health their New Year resolution. Only a few, say 5% of the people actually follow it. If you are also serious about discovering health and fitness in 2018, let we introduce you to Yoga and clear the myths that most of you carry in your mind about Yoga –

What makes Yoga the best form of fitness? Well, you may Google about it and find millions of websites answering your question. There is no denying the fact that Yoga is a complete science that helps you stay physically fit, active and emotionally strong as well. In fact, Yoga works not just at body level but also at mind and soul level also. That’s why, the team of Ayuskama Rishikesh says – “You are as young as flexible your spine in.”

Let us first clarify the myth that Yoga is slow or boring where one has to focus on breathing or hold the postures and just do a lot of stretching.

In fact, there is so much rush and pressure in everything we do that Yoga comes as a whiff of fresh air. “No rush. No Pressure.” This is what Yoga is all about. You are not doing any aasana to show off or in a hurry or to reach a milestone. Yoga is just like the flow of life where you gradually and gracefully enjoy being in the moment.

Another myth in people’s mind is that a man cannot have a muscular body with Yoga. All your assumptions will fall flat when you start practicing it. You will realize there is nothing better for one’s body, mind as well as soul other than Yoga. And talking about breathing exercise, which other form of fitness gives you a moment to cherish the breath you take and fill yourself with gratitude!

People all over the world are falling in love with Yoga because it is so extesive and so beautiful that you can never get bored or even tired doing it! Look around, the plants and animals you see – would you believe there is a yoga posture for every animal’s unique aspect. You can learn to balance yourself like a tree; you can learn to have your spinal exercises like cow or cat… and in case you wish to experience such natural amazingness, browse the various Yoga training courses at Ayuskama Rishikesh.

This would be your best gift to yourself in 2018.
