Yoga and Meditation

Ayurveda is the science and yoga is the practice of the science

Yoga and ayurveda are inseparable sisters. Both originate as part of a greater system of Vedic knowledge (what I would call as the nurturing mother). Yoga originates in the Yajur Veda, while Ayurveda originates in the Atharva Veda and Rig Veda.

In this classical Vedic scheme, Ayurveda is the Vedic system developed specifically for healing purposes. There is no other Vedic system of healing apart from Ayurveda. Yoga is the Vedic system of spiritual practice or sadhana. All Vedic sadhana or spiritual practice involves some form of Yoga practice.

This means that Yoga is not originally or inherently a medical system. It does not address either physical or psychological disease or their treatment in a primary manner. Yoga aims at relieving spiritual suffering, which it defines according to the kleshas or spiritual afflictions starting with ignorance (avidyĆ ) of our true nature as pure consciousness, which leads us to a false identification of ourselves with our transient bodies and minds.

Yoga for healing should be applied according to Ayurvedic guidelines of diagnosis, treatment, and health maintenance if we want to keep yogic healing within the scope of Vedic knowledge

At Roman Lake, we have a special focus on Yoga and Meditation, within the Ayurveda treatments.

With our renowned Yoga instructors, we focus on the sessions being performed during the sunset hours of the guests stay, to allow them to truly recuperate from the stresses of the day and the Ayurveda Treatments through which they have undergone.
