ASTITVA - ONE'S EXISTENCE
“Astitva,” Anantya’s Ayurveda spa embodies the essence of wholistic wellness. The term “Astitva” in common usage means “existence.” But, in Sanskrit, it stands for the attainment of the complete potential of every thing. In its purest form it is the attainment of god himself. At Anantya, we use Ayurveda, yoga, and meditation to allign the body, mind, and the spirit to attain wellness that guests will carry with them into their daily lives, in their pursuit of “Astitva.”
WHY IT WORKS?
Today caught as we are in the compulsions of a stress-inducing lifestyle, health very often connotes the existence or the lack of certain physical and mental conditions or diseases. It very often takes a breakdown in our physical and emotional health to make us seek intervention. But modern medicine, with its approach of dealing with specific ailments that have to do with specific body organs, can exclude the crucial totality and therefore miss the root cause of our condition. What is needed is an inclusive approach to healthy living and healing and this is where Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of healing and living, comes in. In effect, Ayurveda makes us pause to reflect on some crucial questions regarding our daily living habits which are connected to our overall mental and physical health.
WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
“Ayurveda is the science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge), the ancient Indian system of healing that address a person’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Ayurveda believes that there is a deep connection between the individual and the universe. So, Ayurveda takes an inclusive approach to health. Health is not merely treating an ailment but finding the balance between our environment, body, mind, and spirit. To attain this balance, Ayurveda encourages close attention to one’s life, diet, lifestyle, and also the use of Ayurvedic massages and herbs.
