I am an accredited Ayurveda Nutrition and Lifestyle Practitioner, through the APA (Ayurveda Practitioners Association) which is the largest Ayurveda body in the UK. I have had a long standing interest in nutrition and studied natural approaches to nutrition in the past but it was n’t until I came across Ayurveda that it became an integrated way of life. I became aware of Ayurveda during a sabbatical to India in 2006, when I was captivated by its power to support health naturally and its close relationship with yoga. I embarked on an Ayurvedic Practitioners course as soon as I returned from India in 2007, I loved the teachings but life had other ideas. Instead of pursuing Ayurveda, I started working for a charity which turned into a ten year tenure. However, during this time I maintain an interest in Ayurveda and considered returning to it formally when circumstances allowed it. Fast forward and those circumstances arose when in 2020 I reconnected with Atreya Smith and the European Institute for Vedic Studies. Timing is everything with now being the right time for myself to share the incredible teachings of Ayurveda with others.
