Ayurveda & Stress Release: calm your nervous system
Many people suffer from chronic stress, which affects the digestive system, the nervous system, the hormone system and so on. From an Ayurvedic perspective, stress indicates that there is an increase in the bio-energy ‘Vata’ in the body. Vata consists of the elements of air and space. Too high ‘Vata’ causes an overactive nervous system: a restless feeling, anxiety, shallow breathing, irritation and bad sleep.
Ayurveda has a special but also very logical approach to stress. In this workshop you will learn how to bring the element of earth into your life and thereby calm your nervous system. We discuss the possibilities of nutrition, daily routine, herbs, massage and will work with a number of simple but very effective yoga and breathing exercises.

I am very happy to be able to give this workshop. At the end of 2014, I had a burnout myself. The insights I gained through Ayurveda helped me tremendously in my recovery and still help me find peace at times of stress.


  • The workshop consists of theory and practice. The theory part will last about 1.5 to 2 hours. Then there is a 30 min break and then we start with practical exercises.
  • I start with an introduction about myself and will then give a general explanation about Ayurveda: the origin, development and the basic principles of this age-old ‘Science of Life’. This introduction is part of every workshop.
  • We discuss the basic principle of the three bio-energies (doshas): the managers of our body and mind
  • We will go deeper into the dosha ‘Vata’: its function and how you can recognize Vata in your own physical body and in your mind
  • What happens if Vata becomes unbalanced? You learn what effects an increased Vata has on your system, both physically and mentally.
  • How do I balance Vata? How nutrition, certain herbs, daily routine and massages can help to lower Vata in the system.
  • You will receive the most important advice on nutrition, herbs and routine.
    BREAK: 30 min with an appropriate ‘stress-release snack’
  • In support to the do’s and don’ts for lowering Vata, there are a number of very effective yoga postures (asanas) and pranayama (breathing exercises) that make the nervous system relax.
  • I guide you through a stress release practice, which includes restorative postures, sleep yoga and soothing breathing exercises.
  • You finish with a wonderful savasana and go home with a calm mind & relaxed body.


  1. Ayurvedic knowledge
    Ayurveda is becoming increasingly popular in the West and even modern medicine is increasingly looking for remedies and solutions in Ayurveda. Yet there is often little understanding of this science. This is your chance to dive deeper into this ‘Science of Life’ and to learn the basics.
    Every workshop we dive deeper into the theory and highlight a different theme. If you follow the 4 workshops as training, you will have a good understanding of the most important principles within Ayurveda at the end of the ride.
  2. Gives self-insight
    Ayurveda promotes self-insight. When you learn to see how the elements of Vata (space & air) come back into your body and mind you will understand the effect (karma) of certain foods, activities etc on your health.
  3. Is empowering
    With the gained self-knowledge you know how to balance yourself by means of nutrition, daily routine, herbs and exercises. Ayurveda stands for the wisdom of life, this wisdom we all have in us. The more we become ‘in-tune’ with our nature, the easier and faster we can balance ourselves with everyday things.
  4. Get started at home
    The most important do’s to lower Vata you will take home. Chronic stress is not solved with one workshop, but with the consistent application of the advice in your daily life you will soon see improvement. With this hand-out you can get started at home.
