Bruno Duval

My name is Bruno, a chef an Ayurvedic therapist from France. Four years ago I realized that I needed a big change in my life. I was working in a huge restaurant kitchen and did not have a healthy life style. I was not happy in my job and was feeling stressed and emotional.

Fortunately, I had the opportunity to travel in Australia and Norway working as a chef in yoga centers and was introduced to the Ancient holistic medicine of Ayurveda.
I took the radical decision to explore more deeply the ideas of personal balance and harmony and traveled to North and South India to learn the philosophy of Ayurveda through massage, nutrition, and practice yoga and meditation.

My journey started in Pune, near Mumbai at the prestigious Ayurvedic Hospital the International Academy of Ayurveda, own By Dr. Subhash Ranade specialist on Marma therapy and Dr. Sunanda Ranade who are both World renowned Ayurvedic academicians, Ayurvedic Physicians and Researchers. I learnt during 3 months the Ayurvedic Philosophy and principal through food life style and Ayurvedic massage like Abhyanga and Marma therapy massage and panchakarma treatment.

Then my trip bring me to south India, in Kerala. Over-there I practiced during one month at kottakal Aryavydhasala clinic Ayurvedic Marma therapy massage with Gopalan Vydhar an Ayurvedic therapist in Pallikara city.

In Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, I learn meditation and yoga at the ashram and association named Yoga consciousness trust of the DR. Raparti Rama Rao where I decided to continue to go deeper into Ayurveda and go the Himalaya for 5 months.

I spent one month with the Dr. Sibichen at his clinic in Dharamsala to learn Agastya massage, the most ancient massage of the world. Rent a house and open a small consulting room for 5 months to practice Ayurvedic massage based on donations to observe, feel and practice on different body types.

During this year of Ayurvedic investigation in India, I realized the impact of the importance of nature around and inside us and how to observe the manifestations of the five elements. I began to understand myself, my emotions and my body.

The importance of daily routine, regular massages, and organizing my diet according to season and body type were the keys to create balance and happy life. The path of deeper spirituality, involves observing, loving and knowing yourself – and it’s a continuing journey.

This why I fell in love with Ayurveda – it combines everything I love to do – massage – cooking – healing – and helping others. In the last four years, I worked as a therapist and chef in Norway at Nosen yoga retreat center, I have given several workshops on Ayurvedic cooking and massage and more than 700hours of massage in India, France and Norway using my own medicinal herbal oils.

I feel so grateful to have the opportunity to share and transmit this deep knowledge and receive so much delight from people who could realize that it is possible to feel more balance, loved and compassionate with a better understanding and care of themselves.

Ayurveda is my path to self-knowledge and self-realization to be good for myself and the others.

The purpose of The Art of Well-being is to provide people with a better understanding of themselves – to release their physical and emotional tension – and unlock and rejuvenate their body through the ancient techniques of an Ayurvedic life style and massages.

Come and join me, in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands to experience a life of heath and deep connection to yourself through Ayurvedic massage techniques as individual or in a group as couples.
