We believe that health is created through harmony within you and with everything around you.
Ayurveda, the 5,000 year old ancient healing tradition of India, is a way of living in tune with the rhythms of the external world that is also centered on the internal balance of each individual.
Ayurveda provides a framework that can be integrated with other healing modalities to create a wellness plan that is highly personalized to the individual. Evidence-based Ayurvedic practices such as yoga, meditation and breathwork are now being discovered as powerful approaches to support health and wellness because they reset the circadian rhythm on a daily basis to regulate hormonal pathways, re-establish a healthy gut microbiome and shift the body and mind into “positive stress responses.
