What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old healing system founded in ancient India, is derived from the Sanskrit words ayus meaning life, and veda meaning wisdom. Ayurveda, the wisdom of life, offers a proven guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love and purpose.
From the Ayurvedic perspective, human beings are not viewed as mere thinking physical machines, but rather as fields of intelligence in dynamic exchange with the energy and information of the environment.
Health is a state of vibrant balance in which all the layers of one’s life are integrated. The Perfect Health program provides the tools to enhance your physical and emotional well being through your conscious choices, enlivening the nourishing connection between mind, body and spirit.
Session One: Yog Sundari will introduce you to the foundational principles of Ayurveda, meditation, and yoga as well as the three primary mind-body doshas or personalities: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Through an in-depth questionnaire and analysis, you’ll discover your own dosha type.
Session Two: In this session on “Food as Medicine,” you will learn how to select the most nourishing foods for your mind-body type. Yog Sundari will also guide you in Ayurvedic nutritional practices that will help you maintain vibrant health, appropriate weight, and optimised digestion.
Session Three: The final session delves into why emotional freedom is the key to our physical, mental, and emotional health. Yog Sundari will teach you the practice of conscious communication, which can transform your relationships and help you experience more intimacy and joy in your life.
Session Four: This session focuses on the tools and practices of rejuvenation and renewal. You’ll learn how to identify and eliminate toxins that accumulate in the mind and body. In addition, you will be guided in gentle rejuvenating practices, holistic techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, a personal daily routine for balance and health, and the secrets of restful sleep. The healing power of the five senses: sound, touch, sight, taste, and smell. You’ll learn how to strengthen the body’s inner pharmacy by using specific tools that use each of the senses to heal, nourish, and balance your mind-body.
Please wear comfortable clothes, there will be a little yoga either on a mat or in a chair and meditation.
An introductory offer for the course £199 per person, this includes all tuition, an extensive manual plus other tools required for your transformation.

Students will learn a powerful regimen of Ayurvedic practices designed to balance the body and mind, enhance nutrition, reduce emotional turbulence and re-awaken the senses.
In some form or another, we all seek Perfect Health—physically and emotionally. Chopra Center co-founder and medical director, David Simon, M.D., has designed a beautiful five lesson course for achieving equilibrium of the mind and the body. When our bodies and minds are in balance we can make nourishing choices, achieve the healing, and experience the change we seek.
How will Perfect Health affect my life?
Today, doctors are increasingly citing stress as a major contributing factor to most illnesses. Our bodies and minds react to it by shifting out of balance, which ultimately creates physical challenges and emotional turbulence that impact our lives at home, at work, and at play. In time, we can find ourselves in toxic relationships and non-nourishing patterns of eating, sleeping, and digestion. The Perfect Health programme will help you identify the imbalances in your life, teach you how to correct them, and help you develop a nurturing daily routine. You will also learn to release emotions in a healthy way so that they don’t build up in your physiology. Most importantly, as your stress is eliminated, your mind and body begin to function with maximum effectiveness, creating health, vitality and happiness.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the 4 week workshops, it was a perfect introduction into the Ayurveda process. Julia is a great teacher, the different sessions where presented in an interesting and informative way. I certainly am more conscious of my mind, body and soul and look forward to attending more workshops in the future.”
“Feeling very refreshed & alert did most of the morning routine surprisingly it didn’t take that long. Thank you Yog Sundari, I think at last I’m discovering who I am.”
“An amazing experience to connect with myself as well as others.”
“Since taking the Perfect Health Course, I feel that my life has been recharged and that I have learned skills to improve my physical and psychological well being. I now enhance my life with meditation and enliven my daily routines with spice, aroma and colour in a meaningful way. Julia is a supportive teacher, who brings love, humour and personal insight to her teaching.”
“I have known Julia for 12 years and when she mentioned her new classes on Ayurvedic practice I asked to join immediately. I had a personal one to one course. After the first class I was doubtful whether the course was for me as very little was new to me. But I am so very glad that I persevered. There is very useful advise on diet, breathing, chanting, massage, meditation and other practices that I found extremely helpful. Being able to spend time with Julia to ask questions and discuss the applicability of that advise to my own circumstances, was especially useful. Julia is an experienced and dedicated teacher and someone who listens. I heard her refer to my own experiences over the years, and was astonished that she had listened and remembered, when the comments were in passing while having her wonderful facials and other treatments. Thank you Julia for introducing these practices into my life, when I most needed them.”
“Thank you for reminding me to breathe and have quiet moments. Yog Sundari – thank you for introducing me to meditation, yoga pranayama and Ayurveda.”
“Contrary to all of my previous efforts, I have learned to meditate and enjoy the rejuvenation of those still moments. Thank you!”
“The program was very interesting and inspiring. I was relaxed in my surrounding and that I felt I could open up and share my thoughts and feelings. Thank you so much for giving of your knowledge of Perfect Health and sharing it with me.”
