Each month, I cover a core healing theme. These are topics which have emerged as practical powerful areas in which we can shift how we feel. Here are related resources for you to dive deeper into what calls you.
In this blog post, I review the latest research and how it relates to what we know and practice around circadian rhythms.
Circadian training is always beneficial, but especially so during Fall Season when Vata is on the rise (colds, insomnia, anxiety).
Follow the moon phases with rituals, self care practices, social and manifestational cycles to improve intuition & hormones.
Having solid daily, weekly, monthly and Seasonal rhythms is like taking advantage of your cruise control. I share why.
Change is a time of disruption of rhythms and structures. Supporting your inner rhythms prevents health disruptions.
Ayurveda lifestyle topics with fresh realism, and emotional perspective.

In just five weeks, you can radically transform your wellness approach. Learn how to assess your needs and use Ayurveda to heal.
We kick off the program with a real time look of your baseline signs of imbalance in all parts of you. We then dive deeper into the three key body functions which affect EVERY other system - digestive, sleep, and immunity. We wrap up with lifestyle and routines, creating a container to support your progress past the program.
Each week, we'll cover one area of Ayurvedic healing. There will be a brief system overview video for you to watch before our meeting. During our live interactive time, we will practice self assessment together and I will guide you to supportive responses.
I give tailored tools for you to apply and we check in and modify together.
Each week, you will layer on one practice to support that system. In doing so, we are building lifestyle habits which improve your baseline wellbeing.
Here are my Level 2 classes for those enrolled in year 2 of Shakti School in 2021.
One in three women in the US will have cancer. One in five will die from it. These statistics are several years old, which means that incidence and mortality are likely higher than when we last did the analysis. Let’s talk about why cancer happens and why it’s so prevalent. Also, let’s look at psychospiritual factors and treatment integration.
The health of our heart and blood is so much deeper than our lab values and diet. I’ll present physical and emotional factors playing into happy circulation, and we’ll approach healing from the same holistic lens.
Our goal is to see the opportunity for integration of Ayurveda with Modern Medicine, and other modalities. A good portion of this class is dedicated to live case discussion, so come ready to ask about ailments you, clients, or loved ones are experiencing.
When you join Shakti School (starts mid Jan ), you'll get these lectures in Year 1!
Ayurveda is a very sophisticated science when it comes to understanding digestion. Yet, even within Ayurveda, it’s so common to find these reductionist approaches to food, healing, and supporting digestion. I hope to keep alive the core holistic essence of Ayurveda, by including the emotional and psychospiritual layers in the digestive experience. We’ll review four major categories of digestive issues: constipation, diverticular diseases, ulcerative and inflammatory diseases, and cancerous and benign growths.
This topic is a needed adjunct to the physical focus of Ayurveda, and self care. We’ll cover my most pertinent insights and practices for psychospiritual wellness. Of course, we’ll do some live case study, and self reflective exercises so you can begin to apply.
With women taking on more, and the growing incidence of reproductive cancers, it’s an important time to strengthen our intuition, our ojas, and our ability to connect to nature’s rhythms. Mood sadhana is one of the most powerful ways to do so. Understanding the emotional functions of your monthly cycle is also helpful context to navigate your personal experience. We’ll also do some self assessment and reflection.
The latest research clearly demonstrates the powerful impact of our emotional experience on our health and longevity. While we know this to be true, we don’t always know how to be emotionally well.
During this weekend, we open the door to greater emotional intelligence and perception. With a combination of lecture, interactive exercises, breathwork, movement (yoga and dance), and meditation, we practice understanding our feelings, and how to respond to them.
You will have the opportunity to explore the foundation of emotional wellness through the lens of Ayurveda. This approach allows us to customize our healing based on what we are experiencing, in real time. This increases our depth of connection with ourselves and others.
