Yoga & Ayurveda at the Brussels Yoga Loft

What is Ayurveda?

The two main guiding principles of Ayurveda are:

  1. the mind and the body are inextricably connected, and
  2. nothing has more power to heal and transform the body than the mind.

Understand your unique mind-body type and the specific needs that derive from it.

Ayurveda is a personalized approach to health, and knowing your mind-body type allows you to make optimal choices about diet, exercise, supplements, as well as all other aspects of your lifestyle. You can learn more about Ayurvedic mind-body types and find out how to identify your own individual type here.

Eat a colorful, flavorful diet.

Next to breathing, eating is our most vital bodily function. To create a healthy body and mind our food must be nourishing. Ideal nutrition comes from consuming a variety of fresh foods that are appropriately prepared and eaten with awareness. A simple way to make sure that you are getting a balanced diet is to include the six Ayurvedic tastes (sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter, and astringent) in each meal. Doing so will ensure that all major food groups and nutrients are represented. When you include all six tastes, you will also notice that you feel satisfied and that the urge to snack and overeat will diminish. You can find more information on the six tastes here.

Consultation & Food Advice

Consultation & Food Advice

In Ayurveda, good digestion is the key to health.

Knowing our body type or the nature of our body is essential to be balanced & healthy. It helps us understand the nature of our body in its strengths and weaknesses. Only then we candetermine what is good or bad for us.

According to Ayurveda Vata, Pitha & Kapha determine the body constitution or type:

  • Vata: Ether and Air are the elements dominating this dosha. Vata is the originator of movement and governs all nervous functions. Aggravation of Vata dosha causes pain, stiffness, paralysis, hypertension and heart diseases…
  • Pitha: The element dominating here is fire. Aggravated pitha causes burning sensation of the body, excess body temperature, jaundice, and skin diseases…
  • Kapha: Water and Earth are the elements predominant in this Dosha. Aggravated Kaphacauses obesity, dullness and other related diseases.

In order to determine your specific Ayurvedic detox and diet, we need to know first your body type.So a consultation is required first. The consultation is online and free ofcharge if you sign up for a detox and diet.

You can also book an in person consultation if you would prefer to do this exercise with an expert !

Pregnancy Consultation and Massage

Pregnancy Consultation & Massage

In Ayurveda, pregnancy is viewed as a very special and spiritual time in a woman’s life. It is often reported that a pregnant woman’s aura is particularly luminous and golden — this is Ayurveda’s explanation for that intangible “pregnancy glow“ that we hear about. This is a time when a woman’s intuitive abilities are particularly high, and meditation and other spiritual practices are highly recommended at this time.

An Ayurvedic Food Consultation and Massages can be a wonderful complement to the care you are receiving from your doctor or other medical practitioner during pregnancy.

Ayurveda provides a customized nutritional road map for every unique individual. It outlines the types of foods that benefit you and your baby. Ayurvedic guidelines help increase the chances of better health and decrease common pregnancy-related complications. If your digestion is not optimum, it can affect how well your baby grows and develops in utero, and how smooth your delivery can be.

Our digestive fire is the engine of our body. Through the digestion of food, the body has the ability to use the energy that is formed for action and expression. This happens in every organ, tissue, and molecule in our body. Proper digestion happens when the body can use what it is given to maintain a healthy body and mind.

Individual Ayurvedic Food Consultation teach you:

  • foods to avoid / take according to your own doshafor yourself and for your baby
  • to avoid the discomforts of pregnancy such as nausea, vomiting, blood pressure problems …

Ayurvedic massages can help to:

  • relieve back pain, shoulder pain, pressure on pelvis and legs ..
  • bring relaxation and rest

About Nancy

I’ve written, designed, cooked, taught, tailored, painted, organised films and events, hosted, loved and loved and loves.. Not to brag, I have never set my mind to something and not achieved it. Being  stubborn can sometimes be very useful! But honestly, all what I really aim for is a simple peaceful happy life.

I love living life up. I don’t care about material and possessions, these are objects that can stand in the way. All I need is to discover the world and myself with it, enjoy and live the moment. In this sense,  yoga has opened my eyes and put me on this path. How to explain it?! It was like walking under the rain, I slipped on a piece of sunshine. Yoga is my sunshine, the rain resembles the tough hard times that we all face often.

Eco Conscious Living

I also really love peaceful eco-friendly adventures and very curious to try it all. My hobbies are: Reading, writing, painting, recycling crafts, walking, hiking, dancing, traveling and meeting new people and cultures.. I love spending time in museums, I think art and nature are the most beautiful about life, but life is itself too a master piece.
