I love to cook, enjoying fresh, local, organic and seasonal food, appreciating the benefits of an ayurvedic, vegetarian diet and lifestyle.

About My Service

I offer Ayurvedic Cooking classes in the Vancouver Island region, introducing fundamental concepts as well as hands-on cooking theory and recipes, sharing these ancient principles for deeper nourishment, awareness and connection with our own bodies, health and vitality.

Offering yoga classes that weave introductory concepts of Ayurveda into a beginner/intermediate setting, using seasonally appropriate and body-type specific topics.

Using Ayurveda, Nutritional Consulting/Therapy as well as Yoga Therapy, I work with individuals and/or groups, sharing this nourishment, skill and wisdom with those wanting to deepen and awaken their personal potential.
