Aditi’s past experience is in international aid organizations. However, Indian health sciences – Ayurveda, yoga and meditation have interested and fascinated her for a very long time. Having tested its efficacy in her own life, she sought to gain a deeper understanding through studying their theory and practice through workshops, courses and self-reading.

 

Her work as a yoga teacher and events coordinator in Vedary, a holistic health center specializing in Ayurvedic based treatments has brought her in touch with practitioners of several alternative medicine and holistic healing techniques.  This served to widen her understanding of the field as well witness the immense benefits experienced by the clients.

Aditi’s life experiences have led me to believe true freedom in this day and age of uncertainty and stress comes from cultivating mind-body health.

Ande grew up spending most of her time at a boat access cabin in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.  Spending the summers and  weekends throughout the year was an incredible experience. A definite tomboy learning to drive boats, snowmobiles, and quads at a young age, she also had an appreciation for solitude and nature. She was very sensitive and did not have a sense of belonging as a child, however the cabin was her safe place. Later in life she discovered she was highly sensitive and an empath and began to explore spirituality. She discovered that she was storing unresolved trauma from losing her father at a young age and being raised by an unstable mother, somewhat fending for herself from the age of 10.
