Good health has always been an important part of my life though diet, exercise and Yoga. I feel blessed to have such a varied background of influence with my Indian ancestry, African heritage, British upbringing and Canadian life. Therefore, with my diverse background,esmeandsita.com embodies the best in Eastern and Western traditions. I wish to share and introduce the best of both worlds in this website, but most importantly, the traditions of my ancestors.
Ayurveda (Ah- yoor-veda) and Yoga are intrinsically linked by common roots over 5000 years ago in India. Ayurveda is little-known in Canada. It literally means, the Science of Life and it’s based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and soul. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease. Made from plants and fruits, the supplements, oils and teas help to stimulate our individual constitutions and bring a balance to our bodies. This is what heals us. It’s a way to treat ourselves completely and naturally. Try it and see what a difference it makes. We carry some of the best Ayurvedic supplements, oils and teas.
In Ayurvedic philosophy, as Ayurveda brings balance to the body, mind and spirit; so Yoga does the same; it brings a calmness and oneness with the world- it is ultimately about achieving enlightenment for the soul.
Yoga is an ancient Indian practice which has developed into a worldwide phenomena. In continuing that tradition of well-being we do carry a selection of good quality mats and accessories that we have carefully sourced and that are produced using the highest ethical and moral manufacturing standards. When we can, we will source products that are produced from as natural materials as possible.
I want to introduce you to another favourite of mine called Moringa. In my youth, our diet included something called “Drumstick” curry. Those drumsticks are the fruit (although we ate it as a vegetable) of the Moringa Oleifera tree, known as the “Tree of Life” or the miracle tree. Its secrets are only now being discovered by the West.The trees grow in India and Africa and its’ leaves are the most nutritious part. The leaves contain all essential amino acids, beneficial fats and omega oils. Moringa has rich amounts of calcium, iron, Vitamins A, C, and E and many other vital minerals, as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substances but very few calories attached. This is a natural way to take your multi-vitamins! We carry not only the best leaf powder but the best Moringa green tea as well as other delicious flavours – a good way to get your vitamins. See our detailed section on Moringa and our range of organic teas and powder.
