Music for Ayurveda: A Complete Program for Radiant Health, Abundant Energy and Peak Performance
Dr. Janetta Petkus
We all know that music can be a powerful way to change your mood. Music can also be a powerful way to harmonize you when stress leaves you out of balance - unable to relax fully or drained of vitality or joy.
Finding a healthy balance is the basis of Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old healing tradition of India.
Ayurveda teaches that human beings are made up of three essential qualities, or “doshas,” called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, and that only when these qualities are in harmony with one another can you experience radiant health, abundant energy, and the full expression of your potential.
These three beautiful musical programs, created by an Ayurvedic clinician, are designed to harmonize these energies within you. Listen closely for a “musical meditation,” or play these unique recordings in the background while you do other activities. The enclosed notes will help you to identify your specific type (dosha) according to the principles of Ayurveda and clearly explain how each recording can be used to bring you tranquility, aliveness, and optimal performance.
