At Delight Yoga, we support you with Ayurvedic consults, massages, classes and workshops. What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is a holistic system of well-being that was developed, alongside Yoga, in India more than 5,000 years ago. The literal translation of ‘ayur’ is 'life' and ‘veda’ is 'knowledge’. It is the knowledge of life or the knowledge of how to maintain health in daily life and therefore support longevity. Its goal is to achieve health by working towards balance and harmony by helping people get in sync with nature and flourish in an ever-changing environment.
