Approach and Faculty

It has been scientifically proven that psychological and physical well-being are fundamentally linked. The World Health Organization WHO has defined health as “A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

In order to achieve the maximum, we believe that it is necessary that our psychological and physical condition work together.

Our approach stems from our qualified scientific knowledge of medical biology. This means we have proven expertise in how the body responds to various external and internal elements such as physical activity, dietary changes, stress and your body’s response to various emotions and thought processes.

We use the Vedanta philosophy and Raja Yoga as additional points of reference. Raja Yoga and Vedanta are among the major Indian philosophies, and like the increasing popularity of Yoga in recent years, we believe that some aspects of the ancient Vedanta philosophy are relevant and applicable in the contemporary context.

Our faculty

Our faculty consists of recognized experts in the fields of biological sciences, yoga, psychology, stress management, nutrition and Vedanta philosophy. Emphasis is placed on providing practical solutions that are directly applicable to everyday life, as well as sharing the right context and rationale for each application.

Dr. Vinod Sommandas PhD, Owner and Lead Instructor

Dr. Vinod is a highly qualified expert for approaches to yoga, stress management, nutrition, health and wellness.

From his personal interest in the Vedanta philosophy from his youth, being a teacher in the ancient Himalayan Yoga Meditation Tradition, to the more recent award as a recognized doctor in biomedical sciences, he is the initiator of Vedanta Wellbeing PhD.

In his childhood he was already fascinated by astronomy, biology, nature and the ancient cultures and philosophies of his ancestors. His dream to make a positive contribution to society still applies today. His scientific background in the field of health and diseases enables him to fulfill his ambition to help others get the most out of their lives.

The Vedanta approach

Vedanta is one of the oldest and broadest philosophies in the world that is still widely practiced today


With its origin in India, Vedanta is in fact the philosophical foundation of Hinduism. Despite this, Vedanta has always been universally applicable and is relevant to everyone regardless of our religious beliefs and socio-cultural environment.

Vedanta applies to everyone because of its main concept: the primary goal in our lives is to realize, through direct personal experience, the divine nature within our own selves. Despite all the personal achievements we have achieved, there is a lingering dissatisfaction that we consciously allow.

To achieve unity with existence, we must learn to accept the reality we create, to free ourselves from fear and sorrow, and to enjoy the little and big things in life. Only then will the sense of fulfillment be achieved.
