Join David and I for an evening of Kirtan, a meditative practice of cultivating mindfulness through sound and breath. We will be doing our last kirtan of 2018 at Yoga Public on Sunday December 16th (6-7:30 pm, $20). The winter solstice is December 21st, so as we approach the darkest day of the year, let us join together and share our inner light.
Kirtan uses mantras to develop awareness and equanimity. Mantras are short repetitive phrases, and while they might seem esoteric at first, we are all already repeating mantras to ourselves – but usually they are negative things like, “I’m not worthy” or “I don’t belong.” We need to hit the reset button, and practice helps with that. Recalibrate yourself with traditional mantras that call in compassion, love, and understanding.
All are welcome and no experience is necessary! Enjoy the opportunity to be transformed through the power of live music, storytelling, and community in an intimate setting. All you need is to come prepared to sit (chairs will be available) and soak it all in.
Pre-register at www.yogapublic.com. See you there!
One aspect of this year’s Ayurvedic Spring Reset that I’m strongly emphasizing is skincare. Our skin is:
– the largest organ of the body
– our protective barrier from the elements
– an external indicator of our internal health.
Just like how we take care of the food we eat, Ayurveda teaches us to take care of what we put on our skin.
For several years I have made my own skin lotions and serums, sharing them with a few friends and clients – and with their encouragement, now I am going to share them with you!
I’m so excited to launch Saravat, my collection of Ayurvedic skincare rituals. Everything has been made according to Ayurvedic principles, and with lots of heartfelt purpose and intention. I’m starting off with just a few items, but plan to offer more as time goes on.
We are going to ease into things by having only local pick-up at the upcoming Reset workshop and set dates (the Saravat website will have more details) – but shipping options will come shortly.

I hope that these Saravat formulas support you in your journey towards healing and well-being.
Personalised counselling is an ideal way to deepen your knowledge of Ayurveda and to learn how to apply its principles to your individual needs and lifestyle. A 60-minute Initial Consultation is tailored to attend to your specific concerns, such as designing an Ayurvedic meal plan or cleanse that suits your unique constitution, addressing specific health concerns, or establishing long-term habits that promote balance and longevity.
Having both a certification in Ayurvedic Counselling and a Masters in Food Science, I am most interested in merging traditional healing practices with contemporary research to provide a modern, holistic approach to food, cooking and nutrition. Ayurveda emphasizes the harmony of an individual’s physical, mental and emotional beings for achieving optimal health. As the complementary system to yoga, it is a great way to support and further your work on the yoga mat or meditation cushion. Discover how yoga and Ayurveda can integrate into daily life, particularly when it comes to the kitchen and dinner table.
Take the opportunity to work with me and learn how Ayurveda can support your journey towards balance and wholeness. Contact me here to book your consult today!
