About the speakers

Ayurvedic Practitioner and Yoga of Sound Teacher

Véronique SICAUD

After a stint in college where I study the history of the body, religions... life makes me mother, I explore haptonomy, floratherapy...
In 2013, I began to study Ayurveda, which covers many of the fields of study that animate me. In 2015, at the end of my theoretical and practical course, having never left Europe, the hardships of life lead me to Ladakh, in India. Life gives me the opportunity to experience what I am learning ... and India, Ayurveda and Yoga are true guardians of my existence. Gratitude!
Today, I have at heart to make known, to transmit, in all humility, what these teachings, these experiences bring to my soul, to my body ... My meeting with the Indians, India feeds me, I went back there to study, and I will return as much as life will wish. Namaste

Dr. Manan SONI

Dr Manan Soni, B.A.M.S (Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery), is a young thirty-year-old doctor, devoting his life to assisting people on their journey to health and happiness.
After 7 years of study at RGUHS University in Bangalore, and obtaining his doctorate in Ayurvedic medicine, he returned to his native village, Bir, in northern India, to fulfill the promise made to his grandfather to take care of the natives of the village and to hold a space dedicated to health.
His great-grandfather, Bhawani Das, also an Ayurvedic doctor (Vaidya) wanted this ancestral knowledge to be passed on in the family and that the inheritance continues. He wrote many precious books in Urdu, an endangered language now, where one can read between the worn and torn pages all his devotion and his implication for Ayurveda.

Life led me from France where I was born, grew up and did a literary career, to Montreal, where I pursued another path as a Senior Computer Engineer for more than 6 years for a from the largest American voice recognition company, to Bir where I have been since August 2016 to work with Dr. Soni. This atypical course allowed me to realize that healing body & soul has always been the flame that animates me and offered me the tools to achieve it.
