Ayuryoga is a combination of Ayurveda and Yoga. These are two sister sciences, which cannot be seen separately. Ayurveda works with its medicinal aspects to bring and keep the body and mind in a healthy condition. While yoga through meditation, breathing and asanas works on a healthy mind at a soul level. Both sciences originate from the Vedas and derive their origin from these scriptures and philosophy. Ayurveda works with Dravyas, (Ayurvedic herbs), among other things, to support recovery processes in certain complaints. Dravyas are used in addition to nutritional and lifestyle advice. They are intended to address the body’s regenerative capacity, so that these herbs can be used temporarily. In yoga, in addition to meditation, asanas (postures) are used to activate the body’s regenerative capacity. The asanas also work to support the meditation processes, especially with the pranayama, breathing. Our Ayuryoga training is based on the Himalayan tradition for yoga. For Ayurveda, the basis lies mainly on one of the researchers who wrote Ayurveda: Charaka. Ayuryoga Nederland offers a training and course program that integrates both sciences.
