Before we get into the different body types, let's get to know the basics of Ayurveda. This Indian practice dating back thousands of years emphasizes the connection between the mind and the body, and focuses on the science of life (quite literally: in Sanskrit, ayur means life and veda means science or knowledge). The two main underlying beliefs are that nothing can heal the human body more powerfully than the mind, and that the two are inextricably linked. Meditation is an example of an Ayurvedic technique for balancing them out—so you may be more familiar with the practice than you think!
