Ayurveda Embodied is a 9-month, in-depth online Ayurvedic studies program.

This is your initiation to a lifetime of study. We invite you on this journey of learning, cultivation, refining as we continue our own. As students of Dr. Vasant Lad, we are committed to offering the depths of wisdom Ayurveda has to offer, beginning with philosophical roots and moving into the manifestation of health and disease. Heather and Emmie have each been studying Ayurveda for 15 years, and practicing for over a decade.

We are thrilled to share this program—a labor of love—from our hearts to yours.

Each module includes theory, practice, a sanskrit shloka (chant), a guided meditation, and suggested readings.

  • Module 1 (May 21 -July 30) will cover cosmology, the doshas, and intro to self-treatment based on prakruti-vikruti paradigm and dinacharya (daily routine).
  • Module 2 (August 6-October 29) includes seasonal kala chikitsa, assessment and treatment of agni (digestion) and ama (toxic by-products).
  • Module 3 (November 5- January 27, 2020) covers manas (the mind), srotamsi (energy channels), prana (life force) and more.

The 3 modules are each 3 months long and can be purchased a la carte or as a whole, for a discount.

Spring Ayurvedic Detox & Reset

Note: Meetings are held online, and locally in Santa Fe, New Mexico. You may be anywhere in the world to participate. ♥

Spring is the traditional time for detoxification. As the Earth warms, ice melts, rivers begin to flow, plants sprout and grow at a sudden, rapid rate, and our bodies release stagnant toxins built up throughout the Fall and Winter Seasons. Manifestations are springtime allergies, insomnia, tight muscles from the wind, runny noses & colds, phlegm, appetite change and more.

In Ayurveda, Spring is considered the best, most effective time to release these toxins and help them flow out of your body. Inspired by Pancha Karma, this cleanse follows a specific diet and incorporates herbs and practices to detoxify the deep tissues and organs of your body.

A jump-start of your cellular intelligence and innate ability to heal, this detox improves energy levels, sleep, mental state, digestion, and begins the process of improving long-term chronic conditions.

The Program:

Four 60 minute meetings to guide you through:
1. Preparation of the Body
2. Internal & External Oleation
3. Elimination of Toxins
4. Integration back into your typical diet, or, use it as a way to kick-start a healthier lifestyle through a new understanding of food.

You will recieve:
*Healthy delicious kitchari recipes
*Step-by-Step, Day-by-Day Protocol
*An open forum for questions throughout the process. There will be lots of questions!

Dates & Times: We begin this Saturday, April 6th, at 9am MST.

Guided Group Program: $200

With a 60 minute private session with me: $275
