Do you want to feel good? Be full of energy and look radiant?
In Ayurveda, we believe that food is medicine and every BODY is different. So is every mind.
And we believe that the food we ingest has an impact on both. Eating healthily and in harmony with your specific mind-body-soul type (Doshas: Pitta, Kapha, Vata) will calm your mind & your heart and is easy & fun. And most importantly: it will make you feel VERY GOOD!
First, we need to clear up some clichés:
No, you do not have to become vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free to follow an Ayurvedic diet and you do NOT have to like Indian food either *lol*!
Ayurvedic nutrition is not dogmatic and much more than anything it is a philosophy of life, nutrition, and food rather than a culinary style, at least it is that to me. And it can be to you.
Ayurveda is the most ancient healing system on the planet and has a natural approach to diet and lifestyle. It follows the Middle Path: so no extremes in whatever we do – which makes it more sustainable to follow. In more simple words: you do not have to give up on your cheese, wine, and chocolate :)
Ayurveda is the lesser known sister of Yoga and the good news is that when it comes to diet, it does not exclude any food category, so you can still eat whatever your body craves, as long as you do not overdo it! In Ayurveda, we like wholesome, if possible organic and fresh home-cooked foods that are customized to your type and your current challenges in your body-mind-soul system.
My private clients often turn to me after years of dieting on different styles like paleo, keto, low-carb etc. and still not seeing and feeling the results they have been looking for.
In my private Nutrition Coaching Sessions, we will establish your Ayurvedic type, your current disbalance viewed from the Ayurvedic tradition of the elements and define a way to get your digestion back on track while eating and preparing the right food.

Every BODY is different
Ayurveda is a holistic health system which believes that your diet should be as individual as you are and make you feel good. I will teach you how to listen to our body for answers.
Ayurveda has a simple and common-sense holistic approach to nutrition and diet and you will not suffer from hunger while following it.
The challenge of changing or adapting a diet is always in the MIND – since the mind really likes being comfortable (even if it is not that healthy) and therefore does not like changing habits, so be prepared for it to give you a hard time!
Fortunately, Ayurveda has lots of ways to control the mind – so I will guide you through the most difficult part of adopting a healthier diet which is going to concern changing your mind and thought process as well as the ideas you have around food, nutrition, and diet. Eating the right food is an act of self love and does not have to be depriving, quite the opposite, actually, but until I had found Ayurveda, I was not aware that this is even possible either, so I get it!
One last thing, eating right is not about perfection – let go of the idea that you have to be perfect in this.
I am far from perfectly integrating ALL the rules, but what I can assure you is that if you make an effort and have some basic knowledge of what the different foods do specifically to YOUR body and mind, is that it will change your life to the better without getting a headache each time you think about groceries, cooking, and eating.
