Why We Are Unique / Our Philosophy
At Brophy’s, we utilise the knowledge and concepts of the world’s oldest health care system, Ayurveda, the sister science of Yoga, which roughly translates as ‘the science of long life’.
According to Ayurveda, we are all made up for 3 energies, or Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Generally, we are a combination of all three with a predominant disposition to one. The leading dosha in us determines our strengths and weaknesses, as well as our likes and dislikes. We keep the leading dosha in balance with the correct amount and type of exercise and diet.
First Steps at Brophy’s
We do things differently. The first step for a new member is to work out their body type, as Ayurveda understands that we all do and like different things. We ask questions, such as:
• Do you have cold hands and feet?
• Do you think and analyse things too much?
• Can you skip a meal when busy, or do you become irritable when you miss a meal?
These questions tell us much more about your individual body type and personality than the conventional fitness tests and questionnaires. To complete the picture, we do a postural, strength and flexibility analysis, as well. Once all the information is collected, we know exactly how to design your programme for the best results.
