The Wisdom of Life
Ayurveda is an ancient healing system created more than 5000 years ago in India. The word
Ayurveda derives from the Sanskrit words “Ayus” meaning Life and “Veda”,
meaning Wisdom or science.
Ayurveda offers simple, practical ways to use Nature to bring your body, mind and spirit into a state of
balance for a healthy, happy, and long life.
Ayurveda is a consciousness-based approach to healing. Consciousness is the core of our being. It
has no beginning or end, it is never born and can never die. It is the source of our existence. Ayurveda helps us connect to the field of infinite possibilities where healing happens, so that we may return to our natural state of wholeness.
The Ayurvedic approach to health and healing is based on the individual mind-body constitution, or
dosha. There are three main doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Ayurveda offers natural ways to
bring your doshas into balance based on your unique ratio of the combination of those main doshas.
Ayurveda teaches that the choices we make in our everyday life – the food we eat, our daily
practices, sensory experiences, social interactions, sleep, work, and so on, affect our bodies in a very
In Ayurveda, one size does not fit all and there is no “magic bullet” to create happiness and
perfect health. All the conscious choices that we make either bring us closer or take us further away from the blueprint, from the core of our being, which is pure consciousness, the field of infinite
possibilities. Health is not just the absence of disease, it is a state of expanded awareness and
consciousness that gives birth to a healthy life filled with joy and creativity.
Ayurveda is the science of life that uses Nature’s wisdom to help us to be the best version of
Open the energetic channels to create a balanced flow
Reiki is a form of energetic healing that originated in Japan in the late 1800s. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy).
Reiki healing works by balancing the flow of energy through our energy fields, or our subtle body.
We are all made of light and energy, that is constantly moving and in a dynamic exchange between our physical, subtle and our extended body - what we call Environment.
Due to lifestyle, stress, and non-digested sensory impressions, our energetic flow can become stagnant over time. These energy blocks often cause illness & disease over time.
Reiki practices aim to help reinvigorate the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Balancing the flow of energy through the body can reduce pain, speed up the healing process, encourage relaxation, and minimize other signs of illness.
Energetic healing has been around for thousands of years, but Reiki as we know it today was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s.
My Reiki practice is intuitive as I follow the body's lead to open and heal. The practice I offer starts with centering, setting intentions and letting the body and mind relax and receive the guidance of the light that is within.
Meditation is a beautiful state of restful awareness that is achieved by connecting to the stillness of one's own being. It is an effortless experience of the expanded state of consciousness. Meditation is a natural way of restoring balance & harmony in the physiology by accessing the body’s own healing mechanism.
Some benefits of meditation:
· Stress relief
· Activation of the body’s self-repair & self-regulation mechanisms
· Decreased inflammation (inflammation is the root cause of nearly all chronic disease)
· Lowered blood pressure
· Improved immune function
· Improved sleep
· Increased production of rejuvenating hormones, including DHEA and growth hormones
Whether your reason for starting to meditate is looking to improve your overall health, relieving stress and anxiety, a doctor's recommendation, or the idea of accessing the full potential of your being, the benefits of meditation will be felt almost immediately.
There are many ways to meditate – listening to a guided meditation like Yoga Nidra, using vibrations like mantras or sutras, visuals like yantra or a mandala, sounds of singing bowls or gongs. Whatever vehicle you choose, meditation is simply becoming the silent witness of the self, leading the mind to stillness, slipping in and out of the gaps between our thoughts. Through meditation we access the Light Between our thoughts & our actions.
After many years of meditation, some more successful than others, I recognized what meditation is to me. – it is the state of just being .This is how the name “The Light Between” came about and “Just Be” become my way of accessing the stillness within me.

Often, when I tell people I teach yoga, I get “Oh, you must be very flexible” or “So, you can wrap your leg behind your head” or , “Sooo .. you do that “Om” thing?”
I believe a Teacher is much more than an instructor. I teach yoga because of what Yoga is to me.
Yoga is Awareness, Acceptance and Loving Kindness that begins with the self.
Yoga is a union of my mind, body and spirit that brings me home. A home where I am safe, protected, loved, free, a place where I, simply, AM. Yoga brings me to the state of being where what I think, feel, say and do are in harmony. And that is my Happiness.
Yoga is gratitude, it is embracing grace, it is knowing I am enough, I have enough, and all I have is all I need. Yoga is where I open my heart, it is where I disconnect form the external noise and reconnect to the light within which is my true self. Yoga is where I heal, where I embrace and release my ego, where I transform fear into trust. Yoga is where I see myself in others, where I grow, where I become a better version of myself every day.
I teach yoga to share with my students ALL that yoga is to me. And , no, I can not wrap my leg around my neck. While we stand, sit, bend, reach, twist and breathe we share a journey toward unity, better health, and happiness. And, yes, it all starts with an “Aum” and opening the heart and mind to the infinite possibilities of the Universe. It all starts with accessing The Light Between.
