Ayurveda is the sister-science of yoga. It uses a spectrum of modalities to restore health through the five senses:
Taste, nutrition, and herbs
Smell, aromatherapy, and essential oils
Sight, color, and crystals
Sound, mantra, and song
Touch, self-massage, and marma
Meditation & Breathtwork
Sleep & Relaxation
Ayurveda believes that every body is its own unique microcosm, which is further affected by the seasons, stress, and lifestyle.
Therefore, it's suggested that individuals consult with a practitioner to consider all these factors when determining their constitution, current state of balance, and lifestyle recommendations.

AYURVEDA + INTUITIVE EATING
For awhile, Ayurveda and I needed to take a break. As I began learning more about the dangers of diet culture, it became clear that Ayurvedic dietary guidelines could be misused as justification for restrictive eating. Therefore, I practice Ayurveda with an equal emphasis on smell, sound, sight, touch, breathwork, yoga, meditation, and taste. I am happy to discuss this further or answer any questions; please use the form below to contact me.
