Spa Ayurda say, “Don't let the winter blues get you down. Instead, you can indulge in some heavenly Ayurvedic treatments and feel warmer, more relaxed, and healthier than ever, so the following is Ayurveda’s view on winter—and what you can do to stay balanced this season”.

Your morning routine is an important aspect and foundation of a healthy lifestyle, and it is important to establish a morning routine, including exercise, and a morning detox drink with lemon ginger and honey. You should also take warming and energising exercise that will enhance circulation and build strength like yoga, hiking and walking.

In winter, the sky is often cloudy and gray, the weather is cold, damp, and heavy, and life, even in the cities, moves more slowly, and Spa Ayurda say, “Welcome to the season of kapha. When balanced, kapha supplies strength, vigor, and stability to both body and mind. This subtle energy is responsible for lubricating the joints, moisturizing the skin, and maintaining immunity. But in excess, it can lead to sluggishness, mucus-related illnesses, excess weight, and negative emotions”.

Ayurveda is a traditional Vedic system of medicine with a history of more than 5,000 years, which focuses on the prevention, and management of illness by incorporating principles that relate the human body and its processes to the principles of nature. By adjusting your diet, along with seasonal transitions you can prevent build up of ama or toxins in the body and thrive all year round. Without these toxins you can keep your tissues healthy, improve energy and immunity and avoid disease.

The goal of any Ayurvedic treatment is to bring your mind, body, and spirit back into balance, and you can absolutely benefit from a one-time treatment at Spa Ayurda. There it is crucial that your therapist determines your vikriti on the day of treatment, and you can expect a brief interview or questionnaire before you start any Ayurvedic services. An Ayurvedic treatment is not general and it should be tailored to what you're going through. Once the practitioner knows what your imbalance is, he or she can then select an appropriate approach.

Kitchari is the best food for those recovering from illness, as it is very healing and easy to digest, and you can find Khichari packs at Spa Ayurda, and for more information on beauty spas Auckland, spa packages Auckland and total body bliss  please go to
