Ayurveda is the study of life. Ayur is life and Ved means to know. According to Ayurveda, life or existence is not a rigid compartment, but a harmonious flow. Even the five elements of which the whole universe is made of are not tight compartments of defined objects. They flow into one another.
Yoga teachers often use the word grounded. But what does that really mean? It's a yoga cliche, a phrase that's used so often it's lost some of its punch. And most of us didn't know the definition to begin with.
