Credentials: Doctor of Ayurveda, 500-hr Ayuryoga Instructor, LMT
I have completed four years of Ayurvedic training under the guidance of Dr. Vasant Lad, BAMS, MASc, at The Ayurvedic Institute. I am currently practicing as a Doctor of Ayurveda, based in Albuquerque, NM. My training involved a heavy clinical focus, both with my own clients as well as observing Dr. Lad in his client consultations in the US. In addition, I shadowed and worked directly with Dr. Lad at his clinic in Pune, India. I completed my doctorate thesis on Estrogen and Progesterone from an Ayurvedic perspective.
Before embarking on my Ayurvedic path, I graduated from New York University and worked in the world of corporate finance for 11 years, until some health challenges inspired me to leave New York City and seek a path that supported wellness, balance, and a deeper sense of fulfillment. This journey landed me in India for six months, where I began to self-study and integrate Ayurveda into my own wellness journey. During this time, I was fortunate to have an opportunity to spend a month shadowing Sudhirbhai Pandya, an
Ayurvedic Doctor in Gujarat, India. Seeing firsthand the direct impact of Ayurvedic therapies on clients’ physical and
emotional health, combined with the transformative experience of having incorporated Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle practices into my own life, ultimately inspired me to study Ayurveda with Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico. Dr. Lad is widely recognized as having spread Ayurveda from India to the West in the 1970’s, and his teachings beautifully integrate the classical principles of Ayurveda with the realities of a modern lifestyle in the Western world. I found that in its approach to understanding the individual from a holistic perspective and through the lens of the doshas and elements, Ayurveda had the answers to the questions about my health that were a mystery to Western medical practitioners. It helped me understand the root cause of my imbalance and provided the framework to inspire my body’s natural intelligence to guide itself back to balance. I found the balance that I was seeking through Ayurveda, and I am passionate about sharing and utilizing the centuries old wisdom of Ayurveda to support others on their own wellness journeys. I feel that this is a profound part of my dharma, or my purpose, in this lifetime.
