I’ve always believed in the power of healing available to us through nature. Both within our own human nature and our natural environment. When I first discovered Ayurveda, over 10 years ago, it just made sense. A language, a system, a scientific approach to life, not only for the health of the individual, but with the health of our planet in mind.
I came to Ayurveda through Yoga, and through Ayurveda, I found myself returning to the practices offered through Yoga.
I was fortunate to train with Dr Ajit (BAMS, PCAS), Satyananda Yoga Academy and completed the Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching (350hr) through the Australian Yoga Academy. During my formal training years, I worked alongside a senior practitioner in one of Australia’s busiest Ayurvedic clinics, assisting Ayurvedic Doctor, Dr Smita Naram, during her visits to Australia.
In 2014 and 2015 I traveled to, and stayed at Vaidyagrama Traditional Healing Village, an Ayurvedic hospital in Tamilnadu, India. It was here that I experienced the profound benefits of Panchakarma; and my love of Ayurveda grew even more. I was fortunate to return to India in 2015 for the International Conference on Ayurveda, where I met Dr Vasant Lad, it was here, being in the presence of a living Guru I realised the true potential of living an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Ayurveda and Yoga offers the opportunity to embrace our true nature and realise our potential. I love seeing those around me thrive in their uniqueness, practicing as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant gives me the opportunity to do this every day!
