The Vision

Welcome to Belly Mind Institute. This website is a labor of love.  My goal is to share the passion and knowledge I have for all things Ayurveda and Yoga.  These sister sciences view the human being as an inseparable matrix of body, breath, mind emotions and spirit. True health is a result of making lifestyle choices based on this awareness and cultivating daily behaviors which honor the various aspects of our selves. 

Ayurveda and Yoga offer a pharmacopeia of tools to create sustainable, highly individualized vitality and well-being for each person.  My intent is to link Ayurveda’s Universal Principles with common sense practices as they apply to your life. 

I am eager to share this amazing system of wellness to as many people as I can. Ayurveda is truly “the peoples medicine”, with a three thousand year track record of success.

This website is presented in 3 parts:

  • Belly Mind Institute School - offers ongoing educational courses and retreats for those wishing to dive deeper into the Ayurvedic pool.
  • Words of Wisdom delves into the world of Ayurveda with short articles, videos, the wonderful world of herbs and yummy recipes
  • Private Consultations - offers opportunities for individualized coaching and clinical services.

THE School

Belly Mind Institute School is an accredited school with the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA). The school emerged from my students' desires to go deeper into the knowledge of Ayurveda and my passion to teach.
