Houston Yoga and Ayurveda Center offers a variety of holistic healing approaches in the Houston area.
“Ayurveda is the knowledge of earth, the knowledge of science. The most basic form of explanation of what life is,” says owner Sharon Kapp.
Born in India, Sharon Kapp worked in a cardiology practice before starting the wellness center. Feeling unsatisfied with the treatment methods, she decided to go back to school and study the ancient Indian practice of Ayurveda at the California College of Ayurveda.
Sharon is a passionate healer who uses this science of healing to treat and heal naturally. She believes that reintroducing one back to the flow of nature helps the body recuperate and rejuvenate – thereby eliminating all kinds of diseases.
Ayurveda is good for all ages if administered correctly and under the care of an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner. The practice uses natural chemicals of the earth, found in plants and herbs to balance deficiencies/overstimulation in the body of a patient instead of artificial synthetic chemicals.
Ayurveda explains “prajnaparadha,” ignorance of the intellect, being the root cause of all diseases. Lifestyle choices are responsible for the health of the body and mind. Ayurveda encourages a life according to principles that support the natural ability of the body. This strengthens the self-healing properties resulting in a better mental, emotional, and physical health.
“Ayurveda has categorized three main constitutional types. These types (or doshas) are called “Vata,” “Pitta,” and “Kapha,” very roughly translated as “Air,” “Fire,” and “Water/Earth” respectively,” says Sharon Kapp. (Web)
The increase or decrease in these “doshas” can create an imbalance in the body, which increases the chance of falling sick. Ayurveda restores balance in the body by balancing these “doshas” through diet, lifestyle, and herbal supplements.
Houston Yoga and Ayurveda Center offers services such as extensive health consultations, wide range of alternative healing treatments, such as chakra balancing, marma point therapy, Reiki to name a few. Various detox therapies including the popular “ Pancha Karma,” healing massage therapies and various Yoga and meditation sessions and classes are widely popular too.
Sharon explains that in Ayurveda, the balance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha is used to treat young children too. Complex and prevalent health issues such as allergies, ADD, ADHD, Autism etc. have had positive results with natural supplements, meditations and, “yog mudras.”
Addressing the issue of Autism, Sharon says, “Ayurveda treats the children under the Autism spectrum in a different way than western medicine does.” “The success rates have been great.”
“The natural function of a body is to regenerate; we aid the body do what it wants to do.”
