My personal life took an abrupt turn at 29. After years of working in the business world and travelling extensively, I found myself alone in a foreign country deciding whether to spend my days in the bar or in the yoga studio. By grace, proximity, clever marketing and the book Autobiography of a Yogi, I was swayed towards the yoga studio where an exotic Turkish woman introduced me to the inner world. Through that studio I also made contact with an orphanage to volunteer in the south of India and completed my yoga teacher certification with Sivananda yoga.

During the journey I came across the book by Dr David Frawley called Ayurveda and Yoga and all of a sudden I had the idea of how to practically organise my life, not just my spirit life, but also my creative pursuits and a clearer view of my relationships. I finally found a system not unlike the debit/credit yin/yang law of opposites I could relate to. Ayurveda kept it real in this world.

I studied the foundation of clinical practice (CAS), body therapies (PKS) and Ayurvedic Yoga training (AYT) at the California College of Ayurveda, did a Gurukula program with Dr Vasant Lad in Pune (India), spent time learning the south Indian body therapies in an Ayurvedic eco hospital called Vaidyagrama and mentored with Dr Claudia Welch , who specializes in women’s health.  I am learning all the time with the many wonderful teachers that have taken the core teachings from the Ayurvedic classical texts and adapted it to today. 

No doctor since the beginning of time has ever cured a patient. No doctor ever will, for Nature alone can cure. Physicians are not meant to work wonders or perform miracles. A true physician is a teacher who helps his or her patients work through their problems at all levels.
— Dr Robert E Svoboda

Ayurveda can be thought of as a system of nature observation, of reconciling your nature with mother nature. It relies on being able to describe the world in qualities - the better your imagination, the more in depth the descriptions. For this reason, I believe the creative lens to be an adjunct in healing and the purpose of this site is to enliven the art of Ayurveda. And so, in a big mishmash of personal stories mixed with the foundational scripted truths of Ayurveda, I hope to inspire creativity as a channel to express your wellbeing.

I have had a practise for the past 6 years, working in Portland OR, Castlemaine VIC, and now in Melbourne. 

My Vata dreams of creative, out-of-the-box expressions of this natural law framework. My Pitta organises it here.

Thanks for visiting. May you believe in your greatest good. Love, Sandra
