We welcome you to be part of this International Conference that will be about how Ayurveda and Yoga, two of the primary Indian Knowledge Systems, work together to offer perfect care!

Ayurveda is the Knowledge of Life, whilst Yoga is the union of Body, Mind and Soul. Combining the wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda enables the healing process deep within and promotes physical, mental and spiritual well being. This Indian Knowledge Systems Conference will bring forward and develop the relationship between Ayurveda with Yoga.

Punarnava Ayurveda organized the First Conference “Ayurveda – Where Science meets Consciousness” at Mahabalipuram , India in January 2006. This conference attracted over 600 participants from 13 countries and renowned speakers from 6 countries. The high standards set at this conference invoked an overwhelming request to bring forth a specialist group of accredited and respected speakers together to continue this discussion and further enlighten the participants.
