“My affair with Ayurveda and Yoga started early in my childhood. It fascinated me how simple changes in our habits and routines made such a deep impact on how we felt, behaved, and thought. This motivated me to gain a deeper understanding of what I thought of as the wonderful Science of Life, more commonly known as Ayurveda. Where I grew up, the ancient science of Ayurveda was a part of life and indeed, in our culture, elders in the family routinely quote do’s and don’ts from this ancient text.
What draws me to Ayurveda is how it places equal emphasis on both prevention and cure and is focused on the holistic wellbeing of a person, attempting to solve and correct “everything” that is out of balance in the system. Later in life, I came to learn that Ayurveda and Yoga were two sides of a coin that cannot be separated or divided. I now strongly believe that yoga is the relationship between body, mind, and breath, which helps bring harmony to body and peace to the mind, eventually setting us on the path to finding true joy in life. And that is what I love about teaching Yoga.”
