Healing through Mother Nature

Samkhya philosophy, one of the foundations of Ayurveda, describes the origin of life as a coalescence of pure consciousness and manifest nature. This duel reality organizes itself in a perfect balance of discernment and self-referral. Its qualities give rise to creative intelligence, dynamic expression and the form in which it can mold its proclivity.

Within living beings, this creative fabric is expressed as mind, senses, and body. These three pillars are believed to act as an abode for the ‘soul’ or ‘observer’. Its foundation is the product of the subtlest of intelligence converging with the densest of forms expressed through the five great elements - space, air, fire, water and earth.

It is essential for an Ayurvedic physician to understand the substratum of life despite its inexhaustible potential manifestations. This knowledge provides the most effective ways to identify emerging patterns that bring about equilibrium and harmony to mind, senses and body.

To understand the essence of nature is to understand the foundation of Ayurvedic practice. Through it’s complexity and variations we are able to reverse the disease process and bring about health and wellbeing.

Ayurvedic pharmacology is the fine art of unlocking natures healing intelligence and converting it into nectar.

When illness occurs the physician invariably looks towards Nature for the answers. She’ is essentially the one that heals and restores. When we are able to be still enough and listen carefully to her wisdom, she is able to offer and share her healing potential. 

Mother Nature is Ayurveda’s original physician.

Intelligence is determined by the ability to adapt and change

All of life is dependant on adaptive intelligence.

This can be explained in Ayurveda by applying the combination of direct perception to infer, or realise the most beneficial outcome based on appropriate reasoning and right knowledge.

This action of adaptive intelligence is known as yukti.

When yukti is acquired, our lives become intuitive. We may experience this as a flow state that is present and effortless. In biological terms, this is the most innovative technology, the most absolute present expression of billions of years of complex evolutionary advancements in life exploring its possibilities and potential.

Yukti is the preserver of this living phenomenon and maintains our balance in an ever-changing environment.

You will find it at every cellular level in all living beings; continuously responding to the environment and adjusting accordingly to welcome the greatest degree of vital life energy.

This is at the heart of Ayurvedic health care.

"The very objective of this science is the maintenance of the equilibrium of tissue elements" (Caraka Samhitta, Sutra. 1:53)⠀

The Metamorphose and daily rituals for inner balance

Although our future way of life is uncertain, now is a valuable opportunity to reflect and assess how we may want our future to look. How would we like to emerge from the cocoon-like phase of this process many of us find ourselves in?

Ayurveda teaches us that at the very core of everything we do, a certain quality of expression arises. This quality can be calm, balanced, creative, present and receptive to the opportunities available; it can also be chaotic, unstable, fearful and contracted.

This is the place from which our witnessing self, filters through the mind and sense organs into the world.

The quality of our mental filter determines the quality of our experience and what is reflected back to us.

To support the quality of our mind, including the health of our sense organs and body, Ayurvedic daily rituals like tongue scraping, oil-pulling, nasal oil, self-massage, herbs, nutrition, breathing and meditation techniques are used to restore and maintain equilibrium.

Use this time as an opportunity to create inner balance and harmony. Reflect on the kind of life you would like to create for yourself and for those around you.

What positive choices and impact can we make collectively to support our communities and planet as we witness the unprecedented social and environmental changes?

What do we really need in our lives to feel complete and connected? And what can we let go of?

This is an extraordinary opportunity to reshape our entire way of living beginning with self-love through self-care. Enhancing the quality of the mind and body, and connecting with our most inner state of being.

Creating a beautiful outer world begins here, by nourishing and harmonising our inner world...

Testimonials

I love the whole experience at Yukti. Wayne is an excellent teacher, and through his many courses, passionately shares a wealth of knowledge of Ayurvedic principles and lifestyle. He gives you a solid, grounded framework to work with these principles, so they're not just a concept. I did the full course on "Art of Living Ayurveda" which was incredibly comprehensive, practical and enjoyable. This gave me a really clear path to follow for applying Ayurveda in everyday life: for myself and my family.
I also see Wayne for Ayurvedic consultations, and use Yukti's herbal range regularly. Under Wayne's guidance, I've turned around some health issues that could've been significant. I'm very grateful for the support and care I received at Yukti. Highly recommend!

What a knowledgeable and helpful Ayurvedic business!

Wayne came along to a yoga course I was running to give a 3 hour lecture on the basics of Ayurveda and it's was fantastic! Well thought out, timely, thorough explanations and discussions without overwhelming the group. My group went away super inspired and happy to bring some Ayurveda into their lives.

Thanks Yukti Botanicals!

Michelle Freeman

Wayne, from Yukti, came to our workplace to deliver a mindfulness workshop and it was fantastic! He spoke of the principles of Ayurveda, the importance of our bodies being in balance for wellbeing and he also shared some breathing techniques which was great. Thanks Wayne!

We all went away with an appreciation for Ayurveda and some insights as to how we can bring more bliss into our senses, mind and soul.

If you want to learn more about Ayurvedic medicine and healing, I highly recommend you visit Yukti!

Kate Prentice

My time with Yukti Botanicals has honestly been the most supportive experience I could have asked for. When I went to see Wayne I was caught in a angry cycle, my body was out of whack as well as my emotions. I knew that I was out of balance, but I was at a loss as to what I could do about it. I was very unhappy, I now realise.

Wayne I feel, really listens to you and takes into consideration everything you tell him. He is thorough and learns as much about your health and habits as he can, and then gives you a plan which will enable you to reach your health and life goals. This plan is what then leads to things levelling out and ultimately improving immensely.
I have learnt so much from my consultations and it wasn’t a long, drawn out ridiculously expensive, stressful ordeal. I am so grateful and relieved that I have someone proficient to turn to, if and when I need guidance with my health.

Thank you so much Wayne, Jasmyn and the team xx

Strongly recommended.

Wayne is so knowledgeable, friendly and wise.

A focus on ayurvedic herbs and medicines but my favourite part is the massage. Always using oils customised to what I need, I always leave feeling completely refreshed and renewed.

Very reasonably priced, my wife and I will continue to be back as much as possible.

I am so happy to share my positive experience with all things Yukti and in particular Yukti’s Ayurvedic Spring Cleanse
This cleanse is so doable & so well rounded - I didn’t feel hungry for a second.

Enjoy... your body will love you for it
