What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is the sister science to yoga. It’s meaning can be interpreted as “the science of long life”. Ayurveda is a practice that teaches us to TAKE TIME to to heal, integrate and transform. It is the art of balance and wellbeing by way of nature and what I also refer to as ” the shamanism of India”.
Ayurveda teaches us how to recognize disturbances in our own bodies brought on by food, lifestyle and environment. When we recognize the disturbance as a result of our choices or environment, we can then understand how to treat the dis-ease and restore balance to our being in a holistic fashion.
Implementing Ayurveda is a lifestyle game changer. It is not a quick fix by any means. Because Ayurveda is about balance, it makes a lifestyle transformation more possible than a fleeting 5 day juice fast. With Ayurveda you don’t expect transformation to happen in one day or even one week. Instead, it offers a steady shift over a period of time through dedication and determination to ones practices and a willingness to look at ourselves up close and with absolute honesty.
In this one on one consultation, we will determine your dosha, (think of it as your body type when you were born or the natural tendencies of your body) and compare this to where you are now to determine a protocol for integrative healing.
If available we will review your Astrological Chart and learn how this can influence your path to balance.
Discuss life obstacles and life goals.
Determine a course of action.
When to Schedule a Consultation
A consultation can be very helpful even if you don’t have any direct issues that you are working to resolve. As soon as you determine your dosha you can begin to implement practices that are best as a preventative path to health and wellbeing. Learning where and when your body falls out of balance will only make it all the easier to restore and regain the true health of your bodies design.
A consultation can also be helpful when you are looking to resolve an issue head on. The main thing to remember is that Ayurveda is not a quick fix. It is primarily a shift in lifestyle, diet and attitude that resolves any issues having to do with the body. The practitioner that approaches the consultation and course of action with sincerity will gain sincere results.

My Journey with Ayurveda
My training in Ayurveda began with a sincere personal investigation as I began my path as a yoga instructor almost 15 years ago. During my first trip to India, I met a gentle and wise soul named Adjith from Kerala, the birth place of Ayurveda, who has since been my go-to for treatments, advice, panchakarma and extended education in this ancient art. He is a simple man living in a simple village offering his knowledge and techniques with a pure heart and direct relationship with the Earth around him. Throughout the years there have been workshops, literature, naturopathic doctors and shamanic medicine man/woman that have blessed me with a vast amount of knowledge regarding the ancient ways of healing with nature and her elements.
