AMRITA and YOGAYUR are two well-known Roman names committed to serving people in the field of wellness and Yoga.
The union of the two associations guarantees to provide a network of professionals and a combination of skills, methods and practices that are varied and useful for a successful project.
Amrita has worked in Rome for several years, guaranteeing quality offerings in the field of spirituality with a holistic approach, becoming increasingly involved in education as a change in society.
YogAyur was created to give a new impetus to the culture of personal well-being, a Wellness that is not only physical, but permeating all levels of a human being. In recent years the two associations have joined together for educational purposes and have been working on Yoga at School projects in public schools in the local area.
Amrita was created in 1997 and right from the start the goal was to combine the art of Yoga with the ancient Indian medical science of Ayurveda.
With much effort, love and care, they have endeavored to create a spiritual meeting point in which everyone can share the aspiration to improve as a human being, developing not only their psychophysical well-being, but also their own divine potential.
In the many years of extensive activity it has hosted a vast array of seminars, events, training, debates on well-being and personal growth, on current issues and spirituality, tracing the ancient and wise Eastern traditions and adapting them to the needs of our times.

Since 2009 Amrita has been focused and actively involved in working with families and the world of children. To date, they offer a weekly yoga course for children and teenagers, involving the whole family. While the little ones engage in the "downward facing dog" pose, the adults in the next room practice yoga with another teacher. Parents and children meet periodically to share family activities with quality time, slower breathing, play and relaxation.
YogAyur was born to give a new impetus to the culture of personal well-being, a well-being that is not only physical, but permeating alll levels of a human being, through an integral approach aimed at harmonizing the body, mind and heart. The connection between physiology, emotion and thought, attested by the oldest religious and philosophical traditions, and proven today by science, is the starting point for YogAyur's mission
A constantly evolving mission, utilizing ancient tools and practices such as yoga, massage, meditation along with contemporary techniques such as counseling, the goal of YogAyur (Yoga = Union, Ayur = Life) is to increase the experiential connection with that which we call Life, increase the awareness of our condition, and better understand that which can lead us to a richer, more peaceful and fulfilling life, in short, to a natural wellbeing.
YogAyur offers private and group yoga and meditation classes; massage and holistic treatments at home or at associated wellbeing centers. It also offers relational counseling sessions for individuals, couples or for working groups; workshops and thematic meetings on wellbeing; practice retreats and trips to places of artistic and cultural interest.
Courses can be individually tailored to best facilitate the achievement of psycho-physical well-being. YogAyur also supports educational projects in Italy and abroad with beneficial activities.
