Ayurveda found me in 2010 following a motor vehicle accident that nearly killed one of my sons. My experience is not unique. Often when we experience a critical challenge in our life the journey through it affords us an opportunity. (I had actually heard of Ayurveda long before when I was in nursing school at college. I was fascinated then. A seed was planted that lay dormant for many years.) I knew that in order to be there for my son, I had to take care of myself. I also knew maintaining a daily yoga practice was essential, so I found a yoga studio near the hospital and went to classes. There I met a wonderful teacher who was studying Ayurveda and was eager to share what she was learning with us. I began talking with her and soon went for my first Ayurvedic Consultation. I learned I was doing many things that were health promoting, but there were some simple things that I could change that would enhance my well being. I delved deep into Ayurveda reading many books and articles and was hooked. Before long, I went to the Kripalu School of Ayurveda to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner. It was one of the best things I’ve ever done!
