I’ve learned so much from you in terms of how you teach—the pacing of the class, the way you presented the material with so much openness and groundedness, I felt supported but not overwhelmed; hopeful; empowered. I’m so tremendously grateful for you and the work you’re doing 🙏 thank you.

-Fall 2023 Student

I feel so grateful for the documents and PDF's that you shared with us. For example, the client evaluation form, or the grocery shopping form, or the kitchen organization form - I can't express enough how helpful all of these are. They are truly a gift for all of us who are just beginning our practice. These resources will help us start with so much more ease

-Claudia, 2020 Student

My biggest takeaway was increased confidence in my intuition + caregiving skills. Heightened awareness of the subtle energies around me, stronger attunement to the elements as they present and continuously change. Ayurvedic caregiving is all about maintaining balance: the right thing at the right time, for each person. This course was exactly that for me. Thank you.

Lynnea, 2020 Student
