About the Book

“A must-read for anyone coming to Ayurveda for the first time or as a readable brush-up for all. Sahara offers a contemporary explanation of Ayurvedic wisdom that resonates with today’s readers.”-Deepak Chopra

Discover your Ayurvedic Dosha (mind-body type) and find the ideal foods, self-care practices, yoga poses and meditations that are tailored to your unique needs!

Well-known Ayurveda Expert Sahara Rose Ketabi explains Ayurveda in a contemporary way that hasn’t been done before. Ayurveda is the world’s oldest health system and sister science of yoga, originating in India 5000 years ago. It’s the age-old secret to longevity, digestive health, mental clarity, beauty and balance that’s regaining popularity today for its tried-and-trued methods. However, it’s often been difficult for readers to fully grasp Ayurveda’s intricate teachings.. Until Idiot’s Guides: Ayurveda.

Sahara revitalizes ancient Ayurvedic wisdom and illustrates how little changes such as timing your meals, incorporating practices such as dry-brushing, oil-pulling and tongue-scraping, eating the correct foods for your digestive type and practicing the right yoga and meditation practices for your unique personality will radically enhance your health, digestion, radiance, intuition and bliss.

About the Reviews

I am only on page 12 and yes I gave this book a 5 star review. Here is why... I am not new to Aryuveda but also certainly not an expert. I even have seen an Aryuveda practitioner, drink my tulsi tea, take my herbs shatavari and ashwagabdha, tongue scrape, pranayama, ashtangha, and on and on. Have I been consistent NO! And here is why, because the key to sticking with anything is to 1. Have motivation which I have being of vata mind and body that are imbalanced and 2. Understand why you are doing what you are doing... key word understand. Being 100% honest most and I won't say all Aryuveda books and practitioners are not teaching on a level of modern understanding and how Aryuveda principles really can serve us. Reading the first 5 pages Sahara says what I have been thinking all along... how can this ancient beautiful system apply to me in a simple format... no one has hours to be making kitchari, rubbing oil on my body and doing most of the recommended practices. This review will be updated once I finish the book but for now 5 stars for keeping it real, already teaching me so much in the first 12 pages, simple format, and how the book is constructed. I am truly excited about the future chapters. This book will be my tool and resource for everything and I can already tell I will purchsse many copies for me and others . Thank you Sahara for sticking your intuition and making us teaching us something so valuable in a simple format!

*********************************

I am so grateful to have come across Sahara Rose a few months ago. Her podcasts, site, course, and now this book have helped me to learn more about Ayurveda, and to better understand it. This book is well-organized. It gives you a basic understanding of Ayurveda before diving into the specifics you need at any point in your life. The chapter on Prakriti and Vikruti really helped me understand the need to re-evaluate my body's needs. 3 was the most important part because I strongly feel everyone needs morning routines and nightly rituals to open and close the day. I've been researching Ayurveda for over a year and I felt that this book provided info that is hard to find anywhere else. I have rarely read about the Dhatus and Koshas. Part 4 on nutrition showcases Sahara's unique training in the areas of nutrition. The last part on healing is extremely helpful- just this week we discovered a candida issue in my family. I now feel I have some tools to work with. This will surely serve as a quick reference in the future.

*********************************

I recently discovered Sahara via I a podcast I listen to, “Chasing Joy.” I was enamored by her intelligent musings about health and wellness on the podcast, so I decided to check out her Instagram. I am SO glad I did, because it led me to this book, which has helped me begin dabbling in the practice of Ayurveda. As someone who is interested in natural, holistic healing (both physical and mental), this book has helped me to begin the process of balancing my body and ultimately my life. The body knows what it needs to do to heal itself, and this book has helped me both support and accept my body through working on balancing myself, and taking gentle, respectful, proper care of my body.
