An Introduction to Ayurveda: At Adler Thermae in Tuscany, Italy

To truly develop your entire being, body and mind, all have to be considered part of the journey. In other words, when I drink a ton of wine, it’s going to make my mood real crappy too.

Awareness of this and of your connections inside and out are so...
