The holistic practices of Ayurveda, which encompass diet, yoga and body treatments, are rooted in the idea that body, mind and spirit must be balanced if the individual is to achieve longevity and the highest degree of health. Your therapist will determine your dosha (mental and physical constitution) and recommend treatments and products to restore balance. We look to provide the very best Ayurveda Miami has to offer, call us today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
