Now a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (CAS), Leslie supports clients using the practices of Ayurveda and Yoga to promote long term health.
When used together, Yoga and Ayurveda are a powerful combination in supporting the body toward optimal health. While Yoga gets the body moving, promotes awareness and focuses on the inner strength and calm; Ayurveda looks at each person’s unique structure: body type, qualities, & characteristic, to determine your original nature (Prakruti). Knowing one’s Prakruti directs the choices of food, routine, activities, and more, to create a unique foundation and guide to health. Using this foundation, we then create a sustainable plan, which reduces symptoms and overcomes disease.
Leslie offers personalized support in order to grow a life you love to live.
As an active maturing adult, Leslie chooses a life full of outdoor activities; she relies on her yoga practice and Ayurvedic knowledge to keep her ready for new adventures.
What would you include in the life you love to live?
Yoga: An ancient discipline consisting of postures, meditation, breath, and other techniques practiced to unite body, mind, & spirit. These practices help to condition the body, bring awareness in order to liberate the mind from dysfunctional thought & perception, and gain inner peace.
Ayurveda: An ancient practice of ‘life wisdom’; a natural healing system that supports the body in ways unique to each person’s constitution (Prakruti). This prakruit is a unique blend of the Doshas: Vata, Pitta, & Kapha. Prakruit is determined at conception, it includes body characteristics, distinctive qualities, & temperament, and addresses each persons tendencies toward imbalance. Ayurveda becomes your own personal ‘owners manual’. Each person is unique, therefore healing requires individual direction, unique to that person.
