With the help of the knowledge of the constitution of the individual, mental strengths and weaknesses, personal abilities and obstacles as well as unlived potentials on the mental, emotional and spiritual level can be recognized and treated.

Based on Ayurvedic psychology and applied yoga philosophy, the seminar provides a gentle and sensitive way to discover one's own potential and to accompany people therapeutically in their solution-oriented processes.
