The entire universe is made up of five elements and so is our body and mind complex. Aligning these elements is easy and possible for all of us, which gives us inner beauty, outer beauty and lasting beauty. Ashish Pandya will cover three main topics including learning about doshas and their impact on us in today's time, how to balance these doshas, and a guided meditation to experience inner balance.
