Ayurveda: Living the Wisdom of Life

I love a new year. It's like a fresh notebook waiting to be filled. I love the possibilities, the letting go of the old and bringing in of the new, and the clarity that shines a light on how to simplify.

Every December, for decades, I do two things to simplify my movement through life, and that clarifies what is truly important to me.

First, I go through my physical space and let go of anything that is no longer used. If it's been more than a year, and if it doesn’t hold sentimental value, it is donated. This lightens the load, and frees up energy to focus where I want, and to create an physical environment that supports a calm state of mind. Less is more. There is nothing wrong of course, about enjoying the things of the world, it's about balance. If there's so much stuff that it's distracting us from how we want to spend our time and energy, then it's something to explore.

Second, I sit down with a piece of paper and draw out boxes with categories of my life on it. I write down what I want to create, things I want to accomplish, changes I want to make, and things that are no longer needed, wanted, or supportive.

Ok, grab some tea, a little side trip here for a moment. In Ayurveda we do cleansing. Usually people think in terms of cleansing or detoxing the physical body--this is about mental, emotional, and psychological cleansing. When our minds are freed up and at ease, everything flows more easily. How many people feel stress in their gut? You get the picture. Remember it's not "just stress." Stress is what causes dis-ease. Where we can eliminate (little Ayurveds pun there), let's do it.

"To know about Ayurveda, contact Saumya Ayurveda, Veenaji. When you consult with a knowledgeable Ayurvedic doctor, then your body, mind, and your pranic body operate optimally and your sadhana (your life) becomes easier, your practice becomes enjoyable.” - Dr. Dabral, Ph.D., Sanskrit, international meditation and yoga philosophy teacher.

This same process of clarification and simplification can be applied to communications (ahh, that little device we call a phone, but let's face it, we're walking around with a computer in our hands, how many hours do we spend on it per day?), and relationships. Are we spending our energy and time with awareness? Ok, our side trip is now completed.

Over the decades, the piece of paper has become smaller, and the list under each category has become shorter. I appreciate that organic shift of simplification about simplifying, that has occurred.

Years ago it might have read, for example, MOVEMENT: Cycle X number of miles per week, do yog-asana daily, do the Ironman ride. Now it simply reads move daily. It’s a shift away from measuring, to simply being in the movement. What that movement is each day, is free to show itself, what is needed, and is guided internally, versus an external counting. It helps me keep in tune with what is needed in the now, versus what I think I should do.

In one way, this is a shift from Pitta stage of life, to a radical acceptance of Vata stage. There's so much freedom and ease in this way of moving through life.

In another way, regardless of stage of life, it's the difference between being driven versus flowing; of writing oneself a permission slip to be fully who one is naturally. When we do, we are peace filled. We experience vitality and focus, energy and stillness. We feel complete just as we are.

Imagine waking up relaxed and energized, moving through the day with calm and ease, and feeling truly present and connected to the world around you.

“I discovered Veena on google and was very impressed by all of her glowing reviews. I purchased the half year Ayurveda package with 7 sessions. I'm completely new to Ayurveda and Veena was very knowledgeable, patient with my questions, warm, and has a great sense of humor.


I looked forward to our sessions and after more than a decade of chronic illness, things started improving with the protocols she guided me through. I feel like a different person in just half a year. The improvements are incredible, and I feel so hopeful and inspired by this experience.

I will continue the protocols I've learned and at our last session, I didn't feel like I would be left on my own. Veena is always an email or phone call away - she is very, very responsive, and helpful.


I am so glad I discovered her, and I encourage anyone for any health issue or concern to book with her and see how your overall wellbeing will improve. Thank you, Veena!” -Therese Nichols, Minnesota

“Working with Veena is incredible. She 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

“Veena is a treasure of wisdom, support, and encouragement. I have made such progress since working with Veena. Her advice is transformational. In every single conversation and email I learned such valuable information and gained tools that are helping me be my best and healthiest self. I am so grateful I discovered Veena and took the leap to work with her.”

-Jenny Hubbard, New Jersey


“It is with great pleasure that I write this review! Working with Veena has remarkably changed my life – even in the places I was unaware that it demanded to be changed! Throughout the course of four months, Veena’s gentle and succinct approach allowed me to easily refine my routines into a more structured foundation that left me feeling more in graceful governance with myself – emotionally and physically.

Not only had she brought forth awareness in how I prepare/ relate to the food I eat, but she also prescribed me wonderful herbs to help calm my anxiety, detox my liver, and heal the ugly night sweats I’ve been experiencing due to hormonal imbalances. Lastly, her guided meditations are a great grounding force, and I have since continued to explore the euphoric benefits of Yoga Nidra.

Veena is a well of divine knowledge, and her humor and light will be eternally appreciated!”

--Rachel Monson, Wisconsin


“I have been so fortunate to have been introduced to Veena by a friend, and I absolutely want to share her information with you. Veena is so dedicated to one’s health that it feels amazing to have her on my side. She's truly a beautiful soul. She is helping me navigate all my issues with perimenopause and I am so glad, as the herbs she has given me have not only boosted my immune system greatly, but have chilled my nervous system out", and I’m sleeping again.” – S.J., Saudi Arabia

Saumya Ayurveda's 3 steps for transforming your daily life with image of woman meditating by a lake

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
