Consultations

Ayurveda is the ancient healing system of India, born out of the Vedic tradition, which is dated at 10,000 years old, but is ultimately considered timeless.  Ayurveda is made of two words: ayus = longevity or life, and veda = knowledge or wisdom… thus,  Ayurveda is the wisdom of longevity.

Private Ayurvedic Consultations

In-depth individual consultations in Ayurveda  are available in-person and by phone. We will look at your individual bio-psychological nature (prakruti), examine your current state of imbalance (vikruti) and layout a simple and personalized approach to regaining balance, and resiliency.  Your initial consultation will take about 1.5 to 2 hours.  We will continue with follow-ups overtime for ongoing support & seasonal recommendations.   To schedule a private consultation contact Kaya at yogawithkaya@gmail.com 

Ayurveda allows one to develop deep understanding of his or her own unique nature and how to navigate through the process of healing accordingly with person-specific diet, herbs and lifestyle.  Through holistic means, Ayurveda offers a path to life-long balance and health that takes into consideration your age, environment, career, personality, spiritual tendencies, familial life and physical constitution.  Ayurveda is for everyone, because it is a system that deepens your relationship with nature, so that you sync yourself with the rhythms of life.  It’s the handbook to your body that you should have gotten as a child, but didn’t.   Ayurveda makes you more resliant & more tuned in, by giving you the tools you need to ride the waves of life, like an elegant surfer, rather than get knocked out and washed ashore.  Rather than a cookie-cutter symptom-based approach, Ayurveda finds and treats the specific underlying causes of imbalance, whether the cause is dietary, emotional, hormonal, genetic, astrological or karmic.  Learn to spontaneously make appropriate choices according to the season, the time of life, and the particular circumstances they face from one day to the next.

Ayurvedic Menu Planning

One of the most common phrases I hear from Ayurveda clients is, “I don’t know what to feed myself!” Whether this is because of a tight schedule, a life-long blockage, or newfound vegetarianism, Ayurvedic menu planning will begin with an exploration your underlying fears and challenges around self-nourishment.  We’ll examine the Ayurvedic what, when and how of nutrition.  Then, with basic Ayurvedic principles on board, we’ll get you stepping into the kitchen with ease and inspiration.  You’ll receive seasonal and personalized shopping lists, kitchen time-savers, and recipes for a week.  Plus you’ll get a simple handout that guides you to prepare a diverse range of fantastic meals of using the same simple steps over and over again.  Gain a personalized understanding of what it means to eat “Ayurvedically” – including seasonal tips and eating for your constitution.
