My passion is to share the ancient art of Ayurveda to help others find balance in their body and mind using this holistic approach in the modern world. This offering incorporates therapeutic massage and bodywork, wellness consultations (including dietary recommendations and herbs) and Yoga. This experience is available through retreats, in depth workshops and individual private and therapeutic sessions. These can be online or in person. I am based between Ashburton, Devon UK and Cherai, Kerala, India.
I incorporate Ayurveda and Yoga myself as part of my everyday life. I share the practices which I myself practice and of which I have personal experience. I absolutely walk my talk! The Gandhi quote ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’ succinctly expresses my whole approach to life.
In my sharing of everything I offer I am realistic about life and its challenges. I have witnessed in myself and others how Ayurveda and Yoga can help you to overcome the difficulties and challenges which we can all face on a daily basis, whilst achieving and maintaining your optimum state of wellbeing, physically, psychologically and perhaps spiritually. Practices and therapies offered are varied, and completely tailored for your individual needs
I came to Ayurveda and Yoga myself after some ongoing health issues, and have completely solved these using Ayurveda and Yoga practices. I worked as a nurse in the NHS for over 27 years until 2016. I bring all of this experience to what I offer to my clients today. In addition to this I have experienced incredibly challenging times in my personal life and have no doubt that these practices have enabled me to self care and maintain my mental health. I am very fortunate to have studied and continue to be mentored by some incredible teachers in the UK as well as in Kerala, India. I am constantly continuing to learn so that i am able to refine and keep completely up to date with everything that I practise, for both the benefit of myself and others.
I am a member of the Independent Yoga Network (elder), The Complementary Medical Association and the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
