“Your home’s Vastu impacts every area of your life. It affects whether you whether you believe in Vastu or not. Good Vastu in the places where you live and work brings good fortune. By following the principles of Vastu you can transform the quality of your life. You can change your experience and altar your destiny. With good Vastu, health, happiness and success come more easily.

 Whether you live in a simple thatched hut or a substantial estate, if it has been built according to the rules of Vastu, you will have a Heaven- a refuge from the chaos and confusion of the outer world. Nature’s bounty will flow in your life and severity will be reduced. By living and working in such an environment, nature will support you and your life will progress in a smooth and beautiful way.”

– Sri Sai Kaleshwara Swami -Victory Through Vastu

Vastu Shastra is one of the most valuable treasures of ancient India. Vastu originated in the Indian subcontinent during the times of the Vedic culture, which flourished more than 10.000 years ago. Vastu means “dwelling” and Shastra means science. Vastu is the architectural science of property and building placement, design and construction according to the eternal laws of nature. Through their exact application, Vastu creates spaces that contain true balance and harmony.

You may have read about Ayurveda and Ayurvedic massage in popular magazines. Perhaps you’ve taken a “Constitutional Quiz” to find out if you are Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. So, what does it mean? How can knowing this help?

Ayurveda is the 5000 year-old, tried and true holistic healing system of India. Each person is evaluated for the conditions of their health and their lifestyle is assessed as an individualized picture concerned with finding the causes for imbalances that causes unease in the body.

Ayurvedic massage plays an important part in this system of health. So much so, that it has captured the imagination of the American massage community. K.P. Khalsa says, “It’s a bounty of outstanding, effective, thoroughly proven techniques that help people get healthy and stay healthy.”
Ayurvedic massage is an integral part (along with diet and lifestyle) of an Ayurvedic treatment plan. Daily oil massage is believed to be indispensible to good health. Newborns and their mothers are given massage. Massage is considered to be essential to keeping the body supple, strong and in good working condition during the productive middle years. For the aging, warm oil massage relieves stiffness and drying and promotes vigor. All people are encouraged to do daily warm oil massage. It produces a healthy body, glowing appearance and a happy mind.
