Yoga & Ayurvedic Therapies

Ayurvedic Health Counselling

Ayurveda is the science of life and longevity. It teaches you how to live in alignment with nature’s changing cycles and seasons, and how to care for yourself with intelligence, intention, and grace. 

Working primarily with diet and lifestyle as the foundation of good health, an Ayurvedic Consultation will put you on track towards building a more sustainable daily routine, designed just for you. Whether you are wanting to focus on a particular health issue or goal, or are simply looking to learn more about Ayurveda on a practical and personal level. 

There is no one-size-fits-all in Ayurveda. Rather, we look at your unique body type, your surrounding environment, and current stage of life to assess your needs and identify what will bring you into greater harmony and health. You can expect very personalized care throughout our work together.

I create a custom plan for you that includes food, herbs, body care, breath, movement and meditation. Together, we design a daily routine that fits your lifestyle and meets you where you’re at. My number one priority is to ensure these ancient traditions meet and support you in your modern lifestyle.

I am offering a 3 month container for those individuals who are ready and willing to take a deep dive into their healing journey. Please connect with me if you are interested in learning more.

Ayurvedic Facial Treatment 

Rooted in the traditional beauty practices of Ayurveda, a holistic healing system born in India over 5000 years ago, this facial treatment makes use of organic and handcrafted formulations that deeply cleanse, rejuvenate and enhance skin radiance. The session is personally tailored according to skin doshas and includes ancient Ayurvedic facial massage techniques to support lymph, blood and energetic circulation to reveal your natural beauty.
 

Ayurvedic Facial Massage treats the lymph through the skin, which then prevents an imbalance from arising in the blood stream and stimulates lymphatic drainage from the skin into the circulatory system of the body. If the skin gets dry and toxic from the environment and the lymph becomes congested, the skin will be rendered non-functional. These impurities slotted for lymph and skin removal will be shunted into the muscles, joints and fat cells, creating problems there, and further age the texture of the skin.

The facial includes: cleansing, toning, exfoliation, custom face mask, manual massage, kansa and marma massage. Relax and enjoy warm steamed towels, energy healing and aromatherapy shoulder, neck and scalp massage.
