Considered the sister science to yoga, Ayurveda was outlawed in India by British imperialists in 1833. Almost two centuries later and half a world away, modern science is now recognizing the incredible efficacy of Ayurvedic practices in healing disease and imbalances of the modern world.

The principles of Ayurveda empower us with the wisdom of how to awaken and support the body’s natural capacity to heal and thrive. My own healing journey with Ayurveda has transformed my life and brought healing on many levels. Join me for an introduction to this time-tested tradition which includes a follow up consultation customized to your unique constitution.

This workshop is for you if:

+ You want to learn simple, effective ways to maintain and strengthen the good health you have so that you can become the best version of yourself

+ You’re experiencing physical, emotional and/or mental health concerns and looking for new (or ancient!) perspectives on healing

+ You’ve been feeling a lack of control over your health or struggle to get/keep your health on track

+ You feel like you’re often in conflict with time (never enough or too much)

+ You’re having difficulty finding direction or transitioning to a new phase of your life

In this workshop we will:

+ Discuss the Ayurvedic approach to health and healing and why it’s been so effective in healing modern diseases and disorders

+ Learn practical tips you can implement immediately to improve your health and well-being

+ Explore the doshas. Often referred to as mind-body types, the doshas are tools to help us better understand ourselves and the world around us

+ Take a dosha quiz so you can learn more about your unique constitution and where you are experiencing imbalance

Each attendee will receive a one-on-one consultation with me after the workshop where we will discuss the results of your quiz and ways to bring/maintain more balance

There will be time for Q&A and discussion at the end of this workshop

SPACE IS LIMITED TO ACCOMMODATE CONSULTATIONS FOR EACH ATTENDEE.

Intuition Intensive: Connect to Your Inner Voice through Ayurveda and Intuitive Healing

NailYour2019
Are you resistant to New Year’s resolutions?

Who could blame you? According to Franklin Covey Management firm, 4 out 5 people who make resolutions for the new year will eventually break them. And one-third will break them before January is over!

While the game of habit change is challenging, I’ve witnessed many people transform their lives using the approaches and techniques I share with them. And this holiday, I’m sharing a few of the most successful tips for making long-lasting changes to your health, your habits, your life. 

Join me on Thursday, January 3rd @ 7pm for a FREE webinar:
 

Better Ways for Better Days in 2019: Nailing Your Resolutions All Year Long.

I’ll be discussing how to:

  1. Create a plan for change that will meet you where you are.

So often I see clients who either don’t make a plan or make a plan that doesn’t fit their lifestyle or schedule. The results are never positive. It’s important to learn how to start where you are so you can create small wins that build confidence.

  1. Sustain your efforts during periods of low motivation.

Motivation is fickle. We rarely know when it will show up or for how long. Learn strategies for maintaining momentum no matter where your motivation levels are.
 

  1. Work with your #1 and #2 enemies to help you create the changes you want

Who are those enemies? Well your own mind and ego, of course. They like to keep things the same, even if those things are making you miserable. So it’s important to learn techniques that will help you handle this resistance from within.

Click here to register and you’ll receive a link to join the webinar. Look forward to seeing you there!

BONUS:   At the end of the webinar, I’ll be raffling off a
FREE 30-minute coaching session with me so that we can come up with customized plan for your specific resolutions!

You’ll automatically be entered to win when you register for the webinar 🙂
