She is a native of India and at present, she resides in Toronto, Canada. She is more involved in propagating and promoting Ayurveda and holistic medicine world-wide.
Her voyage of studying, teaching and practicing holistic medicine began in 2003. Her quest for knowledge and inquisitive nature made her go deep into the subjects and to understand the usage of herbs for healing, as well as treating the body as a whole, and not merely the disease.

She teaches her clients to heal by themselves. She is actively involved in the research of Ayurvedic herbs. She has formulated energy drink powders, herbal teas and baby foods.
She stresses the basic concept of Ayurveda, i.e., “Swasthsya swaasthya rakshanam” – To protect the health of a healthy individual; i.e., to PREVENT, “Aaturasya vikaara prashamanam” – To eliminate the diseases of a diseased person; i.e., to CURE.
She is more inclined towards spirituality as she hails from a traditional orthodox aristocratic family of Sanskrit scholars who are strong followers of Hinduism and Adwaita philosophy. She was introduced to Mantra Shastra (chanting of Vedic hymns) at the tender age of six, and she is still pursuing her Vedic education. Her ambition is to spread the ancient Vedic wisdom and the rich Indian heritage. She is striving hard to build a strong bridge between primeval past and progressive present.
She conducts Whole-Body healing workshops, Ayurvedic cooking classes and mantra chanting classes. She loves to educate people and elevate awareness regarding HOLISTIC HEALING.
Her vision and mission is to make people understand the strong bond between Body-Mind-Soul, and help them to rejuvenate body, revive mind, and reform soul through herbal medicine and elemental mantra meditation.
