What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient, medical system which, although universal, has its roots in India. The word Ayur means life and veda means knowledge and so Ayurveda may be translated as the knowledge of life.  

And, although ancient, it was and continues to be an extremely sophisticated medical science with eight branches of specialisms (including general medicine and surgery) which are there to support our health during the different stages of our life.

Ayurveda offers both preventative as well as curative methods and, because of its effectiveness, its knowledge and practice is now growing in popularity around the world.

Having started to practise Yoga with Brenda I was keen to find out more about Ayurvedic healing, which seems to partner Yoga so well. Having undertaken a thorough private consultation with Brenda, I was provided with a 2-week gentle cleanse and detox plan along with advice regarding certain food combinations and suggested herbs to introduce along with the daily practice of tongue scraping. I could not believe how much better I felt after the 2 weeks. The simple changes to my diet had a big impact, reducing the symptoms of IBS which I have suffered for many years, almost immediately. I then moved on to phase 2 of the plan which includes not only food but Yoga/meditation and massage. I continue to feel refreshed and energised and feedback from others is that I am looking so much better too. I am so grateful that I found Brenda, Yoga and Ayurvedic practice and would recommend working with Brenda wholeheartedly."

A Healthy Daily Routine

Underpinning the theory and practice of Ayurveda is a deep understanding and reverence for Mother Nature and it is this connection to Nature that is at the heart of Ayurveda. 

Although it can seem complex when we first encounter Ayurveda, when we start to recognise that we are at one with and a part of Nature, our understanding of this rich and complex system begins to reveal itself.  We begin to develop an awareness that, by maintaining as much balance with Nature as possible, we will enjoy true health or swasthasya of our body, mind and emotions.

To help us connect with Nature and our natural rhythms, Ayurveda also stresses the adoption of healthy regimes such as the dinacharya (daily routine) and ritucharya (seasonal routine). These include simple but powerful practices such as oil-pulling, tongue-scraping and gentle fasting, as well as Yoga and meditation - all practices that will help us to uphold or return to our true state of health. 

I suffer from psoriasis and I have noticed (and so have others) that my skin, not only the affected areas, has improved immensely, which I believe is from the individualised therapy plan Brenda has drawn up for me. The suggested Yoga and meditation sessions have helped me both physically and mentally. Thank you Brenda.

The Ayurvedic Treatments


The Ayurvedic approach to treatment involves establishing both the unique constitution that the individual was born with (Prakriti) as well as the nature of any imbalance that is present right now (Vrkriti).

This is done by way of a detailed medical questionnaire as well as both tongue and pulse diagnosis.

The practitioner will then use a a five-step regime to restore the individual's body to a state of balance. 

This includes a detailed food plan, Ayurvedic herbs, simple massage, daily practices and Yoga (which my many years as a Yoga teacher assists with). 

What Can Ayurveda Help You With?


Under the care of a qualified consultant, Ayurveda has proven to be effective in treating a wide range of disorders including anxiety, digestive complaints such as heartburn and chronic constipation, arthritis, endometriosis and menstrual disorders, headaches and migraines, hot flushes and other problems associated with the menopause, weight gain, insomnia, skin disorders and stress. 

However, Ayurveda also stresses the importance of health maintenance and offers many ways to support this with simple daily routines, dietary advice, Yoga practices and Ayurvedic herbs. 

Book a Consultation Today

As a fully qualified Ayurvedic consultant since 2021, I offer  consultations either in person or via Zoom.

The consultation takes the form of an hour-long meeting in which I take a full medical history, as well as both a tongue and pulse diagnosis. I then prepare an individualised therapy plan for you to follow. This includes a detailed food plan, Ayurvedic herbs, simple massage, daily practices and Yoga (which my many years as a Yoga teacher assists with). 

This initial consultation will then be followed by a 30-minute follow-up consultation two weeks later which will give us an opportunity to discuss your progress. Further follow-up/maintenance appointments can be made as necessary. 

From 1st May 2024, the price of the intial consultation is £75. The follow-up consultation and any further maintenance appointments cost £45. Please contact me at [email protected] to book or follow the link below.


Join My One Day Workshops

In addition to my private consultations, I also run regular one-day workshops.

These sessions are a great place to begin or continue your Ayurveda journey, designed in a structured way to help you learn the foundations of, and then build upon, this beautiful system of healing. 

And, very importantly, these classes will also give you the simple tools and practices you can use to integrate Ayurveda into your life right now to improve your health and wellbeing.

Every workshop includes an afternoon Yoga practice to complement the morning's learning and a beautiful relaxation to finish the day.

Ayurvedic Products

To help you on your Ayurvedic journey, I have put together a Self-Care Box which contains all the morning essentials you need to commit to a healthy daily routine or dinacharya.  

Dinancharya is one of Ayurveda's most powerful practices giving you the opportunity to connect with yourself every morning as you perform simple but powerful rituals such as oil pulling, tongue-scraping and applying a medicated nasal oil.  

I have taken care to choose only the very best products for my Self-Care Box which includes a superior quality organic, cold-pressed sesame seed oil which can be used for massage and oil-pulling, as well as a beautifully-made copper tongue scraper its own travel pouch.  Each set also comes with full instructions.

Read My Ayurveda Blog

One of the foundation concepts of Ayurveda is the Theory of the Three Doshas of Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

These three energies or forces can be observed in the natural world, for example, in the seasons and the different times of the day.

Ayurveda also looks at human beings through the lens of these three doshas which govern bodily functions, one's body type and even one's personality. 

Take a look at the attached three pie charts. Do you recognise certain personality traits that either you (or someone you know) exhibit? Which dosha do they corrspond to? Ayurveda can be an effective way to better understand ourself and other people, too. It's fascinating, isn't it?

"After trying several different Yoga teachers and classes, I found Brenda about 3 years ago and cannot praise her enough. She is exceptionally patient, kind and calm and her classes are so accessible. Through Yoga and Ayurveda, Brenda has worked with me to help manage my chronic pain and support my mental well-being. I cannot recommend her highly enough and would encourage anyone thinking of giving Yoga a go or wanting to support their current practice to contact Brenda. She radiates warmth and positive energy and is the most encouraging teacher you could ever want."
