Recovering naturally from your symptoms with the help of Ayurveda
Ayurveda (literally: life science) is an ancient holistic health system that has its roots in India.. Foundation is the 5-element theory (space, air/wind, fire, water and earth). From these elements arise the three bio-energies vata/air, pitta/fire and kapha/water. Ayurveda can help to restore in a natural way in body and mind.
There are many forms of treatment that can be applied specifically to complaint (s) and person.
Yoga classes and consultations that help you stay balanced
Just like Ayurveda, yoga also has its origins in India. Where Ayurveda mainly works on the body, yoga is the science of the connection of our body with our mind. Body awareness is only possible when your mind adjusts to it. Yoga teaches you to engage in this interaction again and leads you to rest, flexibility and happiness in life.
There are different perspectives and yoga forms. The wisdom from yoga and Ayurveda together is called Ayuryoga. This form is also given within our institute (both in groups and individually).
Touch is essential in everyone's life
