Asheville, NC ~
I am honored to graduate with a 600-hr Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor certification! I am now bringing this ancient healing modality to Louisville, KY via my counseling practice Ayurveda Louisville.
Thank you to my inspiring classmates, who have gone on to be Ayurvedic counselors, clean-eating chefs, all-natural product-makers, wellness center proprietors, and Ayurvedic body treatment practitioners! Thank you also to amazing and brilliant teachers and Ayurvedic Practitioners: Vishnu Dass and Indu Arora!
Tamil Nadu, India ~
I was so inspired to continue my Ayurvedic studies, that I wanted to go to its place of origin. This lead me to Tamil Nadu and Kerala, India with esteemed teacher Indu Arora, and her guru, Shashi Khosla, aka "Masa-ji" (Hindi term of endearment for mother).
Our pilgrimage through Southern India began at Vaidyagrama, an Ayurvedic Healing Village,outside of Coimbatore India. Vaidyagrama is a treatment center, an Ayurvedic medical school, a spiritual hub, an Ayurvedic herb jungle, and a sustainable farm where they grow their food and lovingly raise cows for organic dairy, using the dung for fuel!
As an Ayurvedic counselor, the week spent at Vaidyagrama was so illuminating!
Then we took off to see and experience several Hindu temples and sacred sites in Tamil Nadu. This huge and beautiful state is rich in gorgeous natural scenery, with small villages nestled between huge cities. Our pilgrimage swept us through many sacred temples with their rich stories and traditions. Hinduism is steeped in amazing allegories and symbolic stories of dieties and energies. The colors were striking. The paintings and sculptured ornate and ubiquitous. The people all so welcoming and warm. I absolutely cannot wait to return.
