-Dr. Stephen Parker, Adjunct Professor, St. Mary’s University, Minneapolis, Minnesota


“I began seeing Veena for Quarter Year of Ayurveda package. In the first appointment, we went through a very thorough assessment of my current health conditions and where I wanted my health to be. The second session, Veena provided me with recommendations on food, daily practices, herbs to address current health imbalances, and some very helpful lifestyle tips. The third and fourth sessions were follow ups.

"Personally, Veena has been a pleasure to work with. She is incredibly knowledgeable about Ayurveda. She knows how to present it in such a way where it doesn’t feel like I’m learning something new, but instead I feel like I’m simply realizing something I already know.”

-Todd Broll, Minnesota


Working with Veena is incredible. She's sees the possibilities that lay dormant in us, and is so patient and kind in sharing her wisdom and tools to help birth those possibilities. As Ayurveda is a living science, it takes conviction and discipline to change habits, to live a different reality.

Veena makes navigating the changes smooth and meaningful, inspiring at every meeting, letting me know that, YES, changes are happening! Thank you, Veena. Many blessings!

-Kyle Sangster, Minneapolis, Minnesota

The mudra, mantra...WOW. This is so cool! I have regained hope. Something wonderful is taking place. You and your knowledge come to me after a lifetime of searching and prayer. I am forever grateful.

--Mark Hughes, Minnesota


 “I have seen Veena at Saumya Ayurveda for several years--in fact, my family sees her. She has helped me with blood pressure and cholesterol management as well as helping me reduce overall inflammation. I sleep better, my stress has reduced, and my energy has improved. During a period of high stress, I was waking with a racing heart and the herbal and lifestyle recommendations reversed it.

I recommend Veena--she will stick by your side and be there when you need her. She is responsive, comprehensive and effective."   

-- Bryan Stenlund, Licensed Psychologist, Grand Rapids, Minnesota


“Veena has been an incredible resource to help me get aligned on food, herbs, and mind, body, and soul exercises to feel more grounded and present. I love the daily guided practices, a routine that feels EMBODYING. She has made an outsized impact on my life in a short amount of time.”

Mark F., Boulder Colorado


“The guidance and coaching that one receives at Saumya Ayurveda is crucial. It gives one the knowledge and tools to create balance independently at home with one's individual lifestyle. After the first week, thanks to my personal Ayurvedic plan, I discovered what it is to wake up in the morning feeling energetic and vibrant.  During the day, I'm no longer drowsy but alert, yet calm.”  

--Don Freeman, Managing Editor, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, Center City, Minnesota


“I was inflamed. I had trouble keeping weight on, I was diagnosed with incurable ulcerative proctitus, my energy was very low, and I was taking medications daily for a skin condition, and I had severe migraines.

Following Veena’s guidance, all of these conditions have been nearly eliminated! The incurable ulcerative proctitus was given a Mayo Clinic Score of 0, normal or inactive disease.

I’m very grateful to Veena for the wonderful results and the healthier quality of life we have attained together. Without reservation, I highly recommend Veena at Saumya Ayurveda.”

---Christopher Schirber, Yoga Teacher, Minnesota


"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Veena on some major health issues. She heard what I said and seemed to really feel what was going on in my body. Because of this, she knew what I was going through and could guide my life-choices and provide the right Ayurvedic remedies. Over the past few months, I've made significant progress. Not only am I planning on continuing with Veena, but I can wholeheartedly recommend her to my relatives, friends, and colleagues.    

-- Randall Krause, Los Angeles, California

“I have known Veena for close to twenty years. Over the years, I have sought her Ayurvedic counsel to improve my state of well-being and when I was struggling with significant, unremitting, and deteriorating health issues. Her Ayurvedic treatment were always extremely beneficial.

She has amazing gifts to share, and people should know that.

Veena is a great listener whose subtle, penetrating questions effectively bring forward important information. She is also extremely intuitive.

I appreciate her collaborative approach as it results in a multimodality Ayurveda plan tailored to my unique symptoms, needs, schedule and goals.

Veena stays personally engaged, tracking changes, and adjusting for as long as it takes to accomplish maximum healing and health. She is a true healer. I enthusiastically recommend Veena, without hesitation.” --Jim Nelson, Psychologist, MA, author Running on Empty, Coon Rapids, Minnesota


“Amazing, intuitive healing services provided that promote wellbeing on all levels.”

 --Michael Peterson, Minnesota


“Saumya Ayurveda has helped me beyond my expectations! Veena is a wonderfully astute and thorough practitioner of Ayurvedic medicine’s healing principles and therapies.

She is exceptionally intuitive and empathic and can “see” my body and accurately assess my ailments and conditions through virtual visits.

She quickly determined the course of treatment for my health concerns that have produced excellent results for my body and mind. I have received treatment for chronic fatigue and chronic pain, dry skin, brain fog, and more.

I am 59 years old, and my body and mind were wearing out. Veena’s Ayurvedic treatment has slowed my aging process, and brought my body and mind back into good alignment. I feel vastly improved from when I started with Veena three months ago.

I will continue to trust Veena and her Saumya Ayurveda clinic, with my health concerns even before consulting with Western, allopathic health care providers.

 Veena has been of immense value helping me to alleviate chronic health issues that my doctor could not. I highly recommend Saumya Ayurveda to everyone!”  

– Paul Kellett, St. Paul, Minnesota

“A year ago, after some lab tests, I was told I had an "abnormal" liver. I thought of my mother, who had died young from liver disease. Veena's Ayurveda recommendations, which included herbs and healthy foods, turned things around in less than six months. My liver was retested, and each lab result was in the "normal" range. This testifies to my longstanding mantra: In Veena I Trust.” -- Don, Golden Valley, Minnesota

“I was recently diagnosed with kidney disease. I was overwhelmed with even how to go about the process of healing. I am opening bill after bill with no information from the doctors other than to say—go see another doctor.

I reached out to Veena and from day 1, she guided me through this ordeal. She is the real deal, present and active in the process with me. She truly serves humanity.” --Joshua Nelson, Minneapolis, Minnesota

She has developed a keen awareness of the healing powers of plants, as both food and medicinal herbs.

This powerful combination of yoga practice and experience allows Veena to provide an effective path of healing tailored especially for you. You are in good hands with Veena.” – Hame Persaud, Executive Vice President, HP Ingredients, Florida


“When my father first saw blood in his urine, he was dead from bladder cancer in less than 3 years. So, when my doctor told me I had blood in my urine, I was scared to death—almost. Veena recommended specific Ayurveda herbs, cranberry juice, and certain yoga asanas. The blood in the urine, which had persisted despite surgery, was gone in less than a couple of months, thanks to Ayurveda and Veena’s treatment. Both have my utmost respect always!”

Saumya Ayurveda's 3 steps for transforming your daily life image of a man meditating on a hill

There is a saying, "The mind is more in the body, than the body is in the mind." The Saumya 3 Step Meditation Process shifts us from fight-flight-freeze mode, to rest-restore-relax mode. Give it a try for forty days and observe the changes. The more grounded and relaxed we are, the smoother life flows.

"The breath is the connection between the mind and body, so by training the breath, we become calm, focused, and grounded, we slow down the aging process by decreasing stress. These practices are so simple and easy to have as part of our daily life. We actually feel and look younger."

- Veena, Saumya Ayurveda

1. Learn Diaphragmatic Breathing and Change Your Life. When we re-learn to breath diaphragmatically, we move from the flight-fight-freeze mode, to rest, restore, relaxation mode from where we want and need to live.

2. Daily Guided Practices: 11 minutes in the morning and in the evening, as anchors of your daily Ayurveda routine.

"Choose a couple of practices from the routines that provide you with the greatest support. Perform them while applying our two minute meditation technique and your mundane tasks, just transformed into a mellifluous meditation. This is meditation applied to daily life." - Veena, Saumya Ayurveda
