Best Audience: Beginners and folks interested in learniing more about Ayurveda
I wanted to learn more about Ayurveda, so I asked Yoga Will for a couple of recommendations. Ayurveda: A Life of Balance: The Complete Guide to Ayurvedic Nutrition & Body Types with Recipes by Maya Tiwari was one of three titles he loaned me, the first of the three I chose to read. It was most enlightening.
Maya offers a wonderful and quite understandable look into Ayurveda. I learned a lot about how the system works and gained a more practical understanding of the doshas and how one’s constitution works. Although many of the practices Maya offers are completely impractical in my personal life, I found many that are within my capacity or very close to my capacity. That was inspiring. I must admit, I did not try the recipes she offers…as of the date of publication of this review. I am, however, step by step making changes to my diet and lifestyle using the principles of Ayurveda and fully expect in the future to give them a try. Many looked tasty!
If you’re looking to learn more about Ayurveda and the basic constitutional types or doshas in the Ayurvedic system, Ayurveda: A Life of Balance: The Complete Guide to Ayurvedic Nutrition & Body Types with Recipes is a good starting point. She offers a lot of angles into understanding how the system works and translating the sometimes somewhat esoteric philosophy of Ayurveda into the modern world in a way that makes a lot of sense.
The Bottom Line: Ayurveda: A Life of Balance: The Complete Guide to Ayurvedic Nutrition & Body Types with Recipes has earned a place on my bookshelf.
