धर्म My Dharma

"The True You is the Well You."

 Being well is an active and changing state of being. This is an important part of my story and how I approach wellness for all my clients. My introduction to Ayurveda was a serendipitous day at a book store when I was drawn to Dr. Robert E. Svoboda’s book Prakruti, Your Ayurvedic Constitution. I found myself reading half the book at the café and made the purchase to own what felt like a glimpse into a world I had been looking for in regards to health and healing. A couple years later, I found myself on a plane to India to study abroad. Somehow, during that flight, I injured my back carrying a pack too heavy for my frame and landed in Mysore, India grappling with sharp back pain that radiated through to my collarbone. Again, as fate would have it, after an unsuccessful visit with an allopathic doctor who prescribed me pain killers, it was suggested that I visit a local Ayurvedic doctor at his center. I did so and was reabsorbed into Ayurveda in a much more comprehensive way through a process called Pancha Karma. After the two weeks of treatment, my back continued to improve and I spent the remainder of my months in India with none of the original pain I arrived in. The universe continued to provide me with real world training as I had a series of genetic surprises that led me on a decade long journey of understanding and discovery of the rebalancing of my own body. It was trial by fire and although it was not fun in the moment, the teachings were invaluable. I have counseled women in the areas of hormone balance, weight management, diabetes prevention, stress management and other health challenges. My great joy is to have the privilege of helping you to find the right balance of Ayurvedic lifestyle concepts and functional fitness techniques to optimize your True Self Health!
