About me:

Utrecht ayurveda, netherlands ayurveda, nederlands ayurveda, ayurvedic massage, Better Health Through Ayurveda

I am an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner with over 30 years of clinical expertise.  After earning my B.A.M.S., I worked in Ayurvedic pharmacology where I perfected my understanding of Ayurvedic herbs.   I then launched my first clinical practice in Kerala, India. 

Upon moving to the United States, I opened a successful clinic in New York which I closed after 15 years upon moving to Europe. 

My family and I moved to the Netherlands six years ago, and for the past five years I've had a practice in Utrecht.

If you are a yoga studio owner interested in engaging your members in a proven and tested high-quality wellness workshop, look no further!

The Workshop:

During my workshop, participants will embark on a journey to discover the fundamental principles of Ayurveda.  Through demonstration and explanation they learn how Ayurveda can be a strong force for positive change in their health on a personal level.  Together we will explore topics such as doshas, digestion (Agni), and subtle lifestyle changes for improved wellness.

One of the keys to engagement is my workshop is interactivity.  Through engaging discussions, hands-on activities, and personalized assessments, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of their unique doshic constitution – Vata, Pitta, or Kapha – and learn practical strategies to restore balance and vitality in their lives.

My workshop is designed to offer a holistic approach to wellness, empowering participants to enhance their health and well-being through Ayurvedic wisdom.

Whether you're new to Ayurveda or seeking to deepen your understanding, my workshop provides a transformative experience for all levels of experience.
