I inspire women to be spirited and soft, feel beautiful, soulful and wise. I show women how to be in charge of your own destiny - for health, happiness and peace. What I teach you is easy and juicy. I teach women to journey from Karma to Dharma. All it requires is that you show up.

Are you ready?

How can I teach you this? I was a chef and culinary consultant for the Chopra Center for Wellbeing where I taught people about the value of food, health and Ayurvedic lifestyle. I've authored and published four books (A Mother's BlessingPurify and HealHappy Belly Happy Soul, and Spice). I teach workshops and facilitate retreats for women using this ancient knowledge. I grew up in India, where Ayurveda became part of me even before I was born. My mother followed an Ayurvedic lifestyle. I've studied it, I practice it and I'm living proof of its benefits.
