  • Being a holistic system of healing, Ayurveda likes exercises that involve both body and mind. That is why, ancient healers like Charaka praised walking. It does not tax the body overmuch, it relaxes the mind, and it improves overall balance.

    Intensity
    The essence of Ayurvedic exercise is to exert yourself to half of your maximum strength or capacity. This Ayurvedic principle is called balaardh. Balaardh helps to maintain a consistent energy through your workout. To maintain fifty percent of your capacity, never exert yourself to the point that you have to breath through your mouth.

  • One important point to remember is that Ayurveda recommends exercising to 50% capacity. Fifty percent capacity is usually when strain begins to appear in the body — breathing through the nose is no longer easy, sweat begins to appear on the body and it becomes difficult to maintain proper form and focus during exercise. Going beyond 50% capacity stresses the body and demands energy to be diverted into repairing and rebalancing the effect of straining. This takes away from our efficiency in action in whatever sport we are participating in.
