Ayurveda आयुर्वेद,



We offer Ayurvedic consultations in our studio, online and long distance via skype.

"Ayu" means "life"  and"Veda" means"knowledge"  or "science"  Ayurveda literal  meaning is:  "the science/knowledge of life".

Ayurveda consider every person an individual, with a unique mind-body balance, each treatment is specific to the person. Ayurveda look at the root cause of the disease, it focuses on internal healing, strengthening the person’s ability to fight disease and its intelligence to reinstate the natural balance.

Initial Ayurvedic lifestyle Consultations

Initial consultations are up to 90 minutes long.

The initial consultation is 90 minutes, this is because Ayurveda does not only look at symptoms but goes into deep rooted issues. 

In order to do so, an in depth assessment of the state of your health, medical and family history, your diet and lifestyle is required which is done using the three Ayurvedic examination processes:
– darshana or direct observation i.e. tongue diagnosis, physical appearance etc,
– sparsana or touch i.e. pulse diagnosis. 
– prasana or questioning which includes written questionnaire.

This thorough assessment helps us to understand your prakriti (unique body-mind balance ~ constitution) and vikruti (the current state of imbalance ~ doshas) to enable to give necessary advice.

The initial consultation include:

  • Nutrition and diet recommendation (a specific meal plan can be created as a add-on).

  • Life-style guidelines and optimization.

  • General recommendation on Yoga asanas and breathing practices (option of a personalised plan and yoga consultation as add-on)

  • Supportive therapies recommendations as per your specific condition.

    Personalised Yoga plan can be added with a follow up Yoga consultation.

    Educational handouts on Ayurvedic lifestyle choices.

I have been mentoring Ayurvedic students since 2017 as a leader teacher of my Ayurvedic school. I can offer this mentoring and teaching help on a one to one basis. I only offer this to 2 students at anyone time, because of the deep involvement from both sides. Should you be interested, please contact me directly.
