12-14 février, 2016 Retraite : Yoga + Cuisine Ayurvédique en Normandie

En Sanskrit, « ayur » signifie la vie, et « veda » la science ou la connaissance. Créée par les Rishis, les sages de l’Inde classique, l’Ayurvéda peut donc se traduire littéralement par « connaissance de la vie ou de la longévité. »

L’Ayurveda considère que l’individu est composé des mêmes constituants que l’univers (l’espace, l’air, le feu, l’eau et la terre). Dans notre corps, ces éléments se transforment en énergies et humeurs, appelés les doshas (vata, pitta, kapha). Le bon fonctionnement de l’organisme dépend de l’équilibre de ces doshas, équilibre qui se manifeste à travers nos pensées, et nos faits et gestes du quotidien.

L’Ayurveda nous met donc en relation avec la Vie, la Nature, les autres et avec nous-mêmes. N’en est-il pas de même pour la pratique du Yoga, qui dépasse largement le cadre du tapis de yoga et du coussin de méditation ? La pratique yogique nous conduit à expérimenter en nous-mêmes la multiplicité de la Nature «intérieure», notre microcosme. A son plus haut degré d’accomplissement, le Yoga conduit à l’expérience que Nature intérieure et extérieure sont UNE.

Ainsi yoga et Ayurvéda dont intimement liés, jusqu’à cette expérience rare et ultime qu’est l’éveil à cette non-dualité.
