private consultations

You deserve to flourish with purpose, vibrancy and health.

Delve into your health in a refreshing yet timeless manner with a qualified Ayurvedic Practitioner. In a private consultation you will receive unique recommendations tailored for your unique mind-body constitution that will help you to flourish in life. These may include - food and life style recommendations, a custom Ayurvedic herbal formula, yoga and pranayama (breath exercises), special Ayurvedic treatments, and more.


AshthaVidha Pariksha

In Ayurveda we use a comprehensive eight-fold system of assessment, or Ashtavidha Pariksa. Here, Pariksha literally means examination, however, in a deeper sense it means to enter into or to understand. It is the means of truly understanding the individual's unique constitution inside and out. These eight measures include Nadi Parikshanam (Ayurvedic pulse examination), Mutra (urine), Mala (Bowel Movement), Jihva (tongue), Shabda (speech), Sparsha (palpation of lymph, temperature of skin), Drig (eyes), and Akruti (bodily form)All of this is asked about in order to understand the client's unique mind-body constitution at birth (Prakruti) as well as their current state of imbalance (Vikruti). In this sense the journey of Ayurveda is the journey from who you think you are (Vikruti) to who you really are (Prakruti).

Workshops and Intensives

I regularly travel and teach workshops and intensives as well as see Āyurveda clients. The workshops can be stand alone, may be offered as part of a yoga teacher training or may be offered in conjunction with Āyurveda consultations.

A list of workshops that are currently being offered is available under the Āyurveda drop down menu above.
