Favorite Quotes:

  • “Where Ayurveda to me is, maybe has a slight edge, or is really super fascinating is, because it was so deeply tied to yoga. To the path of enlightenment, not just the path of spirituality and awakening, but the path of what is your true nature. What is you, what are you as a fully awakened human being.”
  • “You could heal yourself through understanding your Prakruti and your vikruti, through understanding your constitution, and understanding the current situation of imbalances.”
  • “I look at the three Doshas – Vata, Pitta, Kapha – those are verbs. The five elements – earth, water, fire, air, ether – those are nouns. And then the 20 gunas, is it hot or is it cold? Is it heavy or is it light? Is it moist or is it dry? Is it sharp or is it soft? Is it rough, or is it oily, or smooth?“
