Ayurveda

Ayurveda means the science of life. Ayurveda works with the principles of balance and imbalance to restore harmony through regular use of nutritional care, herbs, meditation, yoga and treatments.

I began my healing journey in 2004 after 15 years of living in the mountains and developing chronic back and knee pain from skiing-related injuries. I left the mountains and began to work with a shamanic healer in NYC, training and healing with her for six years as I simultaneously began to deepen my studies of yoga and Tibetan Buddhism. These three pathways to wholeness, which seemed initially to be different methods, began to coalesce for me around 2011 as a unified, mindfulness-based, breath and body-oriented way of healing and being in the world and in our bodies. I taught many group and private yoga classes, gave many healing sessions and began to run longer workshops and retreats in order to go deeper into the teachings and practices with interested students. Always, my concern has been how to bring these ancient methods into modern life in a way that is translatable and effective for dealing with our particular 21st-century challenges.
In 2014 I heard about a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist training being offered in NYC by a pioneer in the field, Franklyn Sills, and knowing this was a way to broaden and make more tangible the things I’d already been practicing, I jumped in wholeheartedly. BCST unites science, anatomy and spirituality, offering a template for healing that is universally connective, grounded in osteopathic method and utterly unique. It has allowed me to bring my yoga and somatic meditation experience into my relationships with clients. As sessions progress, I teach clients about the principles and dynamics of BCST so that a shared language develops and people can begin to access the powerful biodynamic forces that are always present in our lives, to whatever level they are interested. BCST has helped me overcome chronic pain, depression and anxiety, and to be more balanced and happy in all areas of my life. The work allows people to feel a level of quietude and support that is usually inaccessible to them, and to overcome difficulties that may seem insurmountable. To witness this process has brought me immense joy and inspires me to continue to train and study, so that I may be more effective in helping others.
