This is who we are
The reason The Ayurveda Practice exists is to help people find peace within themselves. It is very hard to find peace if our bodies are ailing and our minds are agitated. By treating each person as a whole being and easing away the imbalances which have accumulated, we can help restore the natural state of peace.
Kate Siraj is a fully qualified Ayurvedic Practitioner with a BSc in Ayurveda (Manipal, India, First Class Honours) as well as a qualified Shadow Work Group Facilitator & Coach. She completed 500 hours of clinical Ayurvedic internship training in India (Kochi, Kerala and Hassan, Karnataka) and thus is a full member of the Ayurvedic Professionals Association. She is a co-founder and lecturer at The Ayurveda Academy.
