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:
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.”
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.
