I am an Ayurvedic Practitioner, trained at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Dr. Vasant Lad and Dr. Claudia Welch. I received my yoga teacher training at the Institute as well and am certified as an "AyurYoga" instructor - yoga based on the balancing principles of Ayurveda.
I teach several "special needs" classes, as well as one public class: Balanced Living Yoga, on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 11am at The Stellaria Building, 150 Shelton McMurphy Blvd. in Eugene.
The format of this gentle class includes 10-15 minutes of discussion of a principle of Ayurveda and/or Yoga, asana, pranayama and a short guided meditation. It is appropriate for all levels, but some basic experience with yoga is helpful.
I also own Balanced Living Ayurveda, working primarily with adults seeking a fresh perspective and effective therapies for dealing with such issues as women's health and hormone balance, digestive imbalances, anxiety and depression, weight management and aging.
