Ayurveda

The Science of Long Life

Maharishi Ayurveda® is an ancient and complete science of natural medicine originating in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The school’s founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, restored the correct understanding of Ayurveda, in accordance with the ancient texts, inspiring a renewed interest in scientifically investigating the effectiveness of Ayurvedic procedures, and has helped to initiate a major trend toward more natural means of health care.

Ayurveda is a comprehensive system of health care that handles health from the deepest level --- the knowledge of the inseparable connection between consciousness and its expression, the physiology. Natural modalities include:

  • Transcendental Meditation® technique to bring balance and peace to the mind and body
  • Yoga Asanas to bring balance, flexibility, and coordination between mind and body
  • Pulse diagnosis to measure level of balance of mind and body
  • Herbal formulas, prepared precisely according to the ancient texts, to promote and restore mental and physical balance
  • Individualized dietary knowledge to balance the principles of intelligence at the basis of the mind body system
  • Daily and seasonal routine to align the individual with the cycles of nature
  • Vedic organic agriculture to grow food rich in natural intelligence and nutrition
  • Vedic architecture to enliven balance and peace in the environment
  • Effects of the distant environment (sun, moon, planets) on physiological cycles and health


Prevention-Oriented Health Care

A specialty of Maharishi Ayurveda is prevention. Prevention is the basis of perfect health. An ancient Vedic aphorism is, “Avert the danger before it arises.”

Self Care

Students study Ayurveda every year starting in the primary grades. They learn about natural daily and seasonal routines; healthy, balanced diet; suitable exercise; and herbal preparations to promote health in both mind and body. Taken together, these different approaches have the ability to create perfect health and long life.

Middle and Upper School students apply these health strategies in their own lives, periodically incorporating Ayurvedic approaches in ongoing homework projects.
