“There is no right or wrong, only more harmonious and less harmonious” – Dr. Marc Halpern
Ayurveda is a 5,000 year old holistic healing modality from India that uses lifestyle, food, herbs, mantras, and yoga to help individuals address their medical concerns and health issues. Literally, it is the “Knowledge of Life” and is often referred to as the sister science of yoga. Ayurveda aims to bring balance into the body, mind, and spirit through the removal of dis-ease, and by remembering our own true nature. Ayurvedic treatments utilize all of the five senses, and treat the root cause of dis-ease, not just the symptoms of illness like much of allopathic medicine.

Jessica’s goal is to be a connector and a catalyst for yoga students, new and seasoned alike, to introduce them to Ayurveda and gracefully guide them through deepening their practice and bringing more health and happiness to their lives using this ancient science.
