Show Notes:

Ayurveda is the traditional Indian system of medicine. It is based on the idea of balance in bodily systems using diet, herbal treatment, and yogic breathing.

The wisdom in Ayurvedic teachings is profound and answers questions about how to approach work, rest and live a life of meaning.

My guest for this show is Erica McQuown, a practitioner and teacher of Ayurveda. Erica explains Ayurveda in a way that is both full of wonder and practical at the same time, which makes her a true joy to talk with and learn from.

In this podcast, Erica describes how she was introduced to Ayurveda and how she implements it in her busy life. We also dive into topics such as; how there can be confusion about what a “simple” lifestyle actually looks like/means, and how to apply ancient wisdom and practices to our modern day problems.
