La ayuverda es una medicina tradicional india que trata de reconciliar y equilibrar nuestro cuerpo – mente - espíritu a todos los niveles para preservar nuestra salud y sobrellevar mejor nuestra existencia. Centra su atención en el flujo vital de nuestro ser, así como en el sistema de canales que la naturaleza ha creado para encauzar lo que ingerimos y expulsamos.

It is a good one for Ayurveda beginners, a practical guide on creating and sustaining a balanced, healthy daily life by following Ayurvedic principles of vata, pitta and kapha balance in routine food and lifestyle. Explains different landmark stages of the female life and the Dosha pertaining to each - childhood (Kapha age), womanhood (Pitta age) and wise womanhood (Vata age) and provides practical advice on excercise, sleep, diet, beauty care, meditation, sex and relationship, childcare, menopa ...more
Este es el primer libro que leo de Robert Svoboda, pero quedé invitada a leer más libros de su autoría. El libro está muy bien escrito, es de fácil lectura y comprensión.

Really easy to understand compared to other books on Ayurveda. Fascinating!

Wonderful guide for harmonized living.
A good guide to Ayurveda and women's health in general. The narrative was a bit disjointed and could have been organized better. It was hard to find specific information without reading an entire section.
3.5/5. A good read, and Svoboda is clearly a wealth of information. Ultimately though, I'd prefer to read a book written about women's vitality, health & creativity by a woman.
Remind me not to read any more books by men about what women are like and not like and what we should do and not do.

During and after my formal Ayurvedic training I was tutored in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotisha, Tantra and allied subjects by my mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda. He also owned thoroughbred race horses, and I served as his Authorized Racing Agent at the Royal Western India Turf Club in Bombay and Poona between 1975 and 1985.
