The Link Between Yoga and Ayurveda – Simplified with Nidhi Pandya

One of the topics I’ve been keen to do on this podcast was about the Iink between yoga and ayurveda from a very practical standpoint for asana teachers in modern yoga. Fortunately, I recently came across the Instagram account of our guest today, Nidhi Pandya, who has generational ayurvedic wisdom from her grandfather who was an ayurvedic healer in India. She has been immersed in ayurveda since birth and has classical ayurveda training from the scriptures.

In this episode, we get to explore why yoga and ayurveda are called sister sciences, doshas, the different types of asanas, and more. Nidhi provides us with a very practical understanding of how these things work in our bodies, our beings, and our present moment. She makes it really relatable in today’s day and age, which I really think is what’s needed for things like yoga and ayurveda.

I’m really excited for you to join us in this enlightening conversation!
