Ayurveda in Leiden

What is Ayurveda?  Ayurveda is more than just a system of treating illness.  The Sanskrit term Ayurveda translates to “knowledge of life” (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). With a unique emphasis on total wellness, the art and science of Ayurveda work to harmonize our internal and external worlds. It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.

We have started collaboration with Vd (Vaidya, Ayurvedic doctor) Bhoelai Shasvin from Asamanya Ayurveda Healing. Beginning of August, Vd Bhoelai Shasvin will open his practice at Yogaroom where he will give ayurvedic consultations which consists of the following:

  • Introduction to the basic principles of Ayurveda and its usefulness in daily life.
  • Intake interview about your health or complaints, medication and / or use of supplements.
  • Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis.
  • If necessary, other examinations are performed, depending on the symptoms to determine the Ayurvedic diagnosis.
  • Your constitution (your personal type) will be discussed in detail based on the pulse diagnosis.
  • Advice will be given on personalized diet, medication and personal lifestyle in combination with yoga and meditation.

To celebrate this and to introduce  you to Ayurveda, ALL current and ALL NEW Yogaroom members who sign up will get a FREE ayurvedic consult (15 min) in which your constitution (vata, pitta, kapha) will be determined by means of a questionnaire and also conformation with a pulse diagnosis. Understanding your unique constitution and the specific needs that derive from it, allows you to make optimal choices about diet, exercise, supplements, and all other aspects of your lifestyle.

On Saturday 7th September Vd Bhoelai Shasvin will also give a lecture at Yogaroom on the basic principles of Ayurveda. Interested in receiving an ayurvedic consultation? Send us an EMAIL
