Ayurveda & Culinary services

What I love about Ayurveda is its ability to work amazingly well as a “stand alone” practice. It also provides the flexibility and strength with which to compliment and support allopathic medicine without contraindications.

In an Ayurvedic consultation, we will discuss your unique constitution. Questions and concerns regarding any imbalances you may have will be addressed with recommendations for nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, yoga, & herbs. Follow up consultations will serve to help you maintain balance and avoid future imbalances.

Space & air (vata), fire  & water (pitta), and water & earth (kapha) make up the psychophysiological profile of each individual. We are a combination of vata, pitta, and kapha. Vata, pitta, and kapha are elemental energies. Out of balance, vata, pitta, and kapha become doshas. The practice of Ayurveda provides a springboard from which to work in maintaining balance. We are enabled to live a life of balance when we stay connected to our highest good and in sync with nature. Ayurveda provides the ability to have good quality strength and immunity that is our life sap or ojas. We improve our intelligence and discernment, make positive choices, liberate ourselves from fear and suffering, and live in happiness and radiant health with Ayurveda.

Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, is traditional Indian medicine. One consults with an Ayurvedic practitioner to maintain wellness and treat imbalances. Disease prevention and cure are cultivated through recommendations for diet, lifestyle, relationships, career, exercise, yoga, herbs, and right action. Essentially, all aspects of one’s life are taken into consideration when recommendations are made.

Ayurveda emphasizes the paramount importance of healthy digestion and identification of the root cause of disease to address imbalances; rather than the sole application of palliative measures. Ayurveda also honors and recognizes the need to address seasonal changes and the relationship/effect nature has on an individual’s unique constitution. This provides a foundation for homeostasis of body, mind, and spirit.

AYURVEDIC COOKING CLASSES / WORKSHOPS:

Ayurveda encourages us to return to the vitally important and abundantly rewarding practice of cooking. Ayurvedic cooking emphasizes seasonal eating and the use of foods and spices to support healthy digestion, provide remedies for imbalances, and diminish the need for drugs to treat imbalances. Ayurvedic cooking does not require time consuming cooking methods or obscure ingredients and provides support for our hectic lifestyles.

Please see SPECIAL EVENTS for an update on cooking classes and CONTACT me to schedule private cooking classes or to request meals, baked goods, ghee, or spices.

Testimonials

Diana did an Ayurvedic consult for me last year. As a daily yoga practitioner and one who follows a healthy diet and exercise program, I figured the information would be interesting, but not necessarily something I would use in day to day practice. I was so wrong! From our session together, I learned new practices which I have incorporated into my daily health routine. I feel much better, more vibrant, more energized, and better balanced. I highly recommend that anyone interested in improving their health and wellness, schedule some time for an ayurvedic consult. Diana is a talented and experienced teacher who can personally guide you to a new level of wellness. It certainly worked for me!

I gave myself the gift of an Ayurveda consultation for Christmas this year. The experience I had with Diana was truly awesome. Diana took so much care and time with me. She gave me great advice to make small changes in my life through diet, exercise, family time, and play time. The physical benefits were quickly noticed from better sleep to stronger nails. Diana explained the reasons behind these changes and it made it so much easier to remember and to follow. I have recommended Diana to all my friends.
