Nidhi Pandya: Learn to trust life by listening to your body with tenderness
This week we have something a bit different for you on The Tenderness Revolution Podcast. Our conversation with Nidhi Pandya circles around the idea of how we can all show tenderness towards our bodies - and live a happier, healthier, and fuller life - by learning about the ancient practice of Ayurveda. During the episode, Nidhi discusses the main principles behind Ayurveda, an ancient system of medicine that originated in India thousands of years ago and treats humans as complex individuals whose health is defined as a state of balance in both their internal and external environments. And is based on the idea that the whole of life is sacred. We learn that there are three very quick and easy practices that we can do every day to improve our mental and physical health and bring more tenderness into our experience of life. We also talk about the three main body/ mind types and the different food flavours and textures that best suit each one. And learn how our beliefs - which are usually formed in childhood - shape the way we experience the world. Unless we develop a simple meditation practice as a way of bringing awareness to these beliefs and reducing the impact they have on our daily choices. Nidhi Pandya is an expert, practitioner, and speaker on Ayurveda. Growing up with four brothers and two sisters in India as the granddaughter of an Ayurvedic practitioner, the main principles of the ancient system were etched into her psyche from birth. She moved to New York in her twenties to work in marketing for a large drug company, but soon realised that "If the whole of my life is about pursuing the truth then I'm probably not suited to this world that's all about manipulating the truth," and left to forge a new career path in Ayurvedic health. Nidhi is currently working on two books plus an Ayurveda-inspired method to intuitive wellness called The Inner Climate. She also runs an Ayurvedic practice in New York where she lives with her two daughters.
