An Ayurvedic step into action

Since my goodbye to Portugal, many things has happened and I am back in India again (it is my 3d visit this year). I am finally at the right place, and it seems that my efforts are paying off. I am at an Ayurvedic village in Kerala. Compare to other retreats where i have been, finally here i have freedom to do my own technics, combining with the ayurveda yoga program that i am also learning.

The resort is beautiful, Western comfort is provided, the front sea view is relaxing, as the sound of the waves singing all day long give tranquility of mind to relax and read.

My days start at 5am for self-practice. Full power (or not actually – i love my resting moment to charge and focus).

I am eating only sattvic food, which is veggan and aligned with my dosha. What is a DOSHA? According to Ayurveda, it is your dominant’s element in your body and mind. There are 5 elements : EARTH, FIRE, WATER, AIR, ETHER – in which we can find our 3 doshas:

Kapha (Water+Earth) – Pitta (Fire) – Vata (Air)

So practicing fully something I was already committed in life but in a deeper way, and expanding my knowledge to others as a support for living to enhance well-being on earth, makes totally sense and won’t change anything.

It gives me so much Joy to see what has helped me to overcome struggles, also working on others and liberate them.

Beside the retreat, I visited a virgin village – 30min away from the resort. It is called Marari beach. It is one long beach with nothing else than fishermen boats, straight dogs, coconut trees and of course plastic everywhere (even in a such non touristic area). I love India but not for their issue with environment and pollution.

I am surrounded by the cutest village where live families in little huts without so much facilities like electricity and water. Our evenings are mostly black with powercut every evening. There is nothing much to do for distraction all around, no restaurants, bars, foreigners, beach club or anything. Only the jungle, the beach and the stars. I found it is enough, I don’t feel wanting anything more at the moment – the sereine atmosphere enhance harmony in me at all levels of my being. Also since 2015, I never lived in a city anymore so my acceptance for less is stable.

I was right to keep looking for passion, courage, achieving goals and dreams, for being myself and for exploring myself so deep than I am having so much to share.

We are all born so beautiful, the greatest tragedy is being convinced we are not. Rupi Kaur

Lives between Europe and exotic places, here is my story: I worked as a fashion Buyer for 10 years in Paris and get the chance to travel a lot during fashion weeks and experienced to live abroad. At 30 I changed my life and relocated in Hong Kong, where in parallel of my work I was studying Yoga and Ayurveda from short trips to Bali. Influenced by my teachers, peers, environment and my travels… I felt unstoppable and this year gap changed my life. First, I attended in Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Monastery my first Vipassana course – the 21 days of silent meditation in 2013. I did an Ashtanga 200-YTT in India in 2013, I stayed under the guidance of certified Ashtanga teachers of KP Jois as Prem Carlisi, Damien de Bastier, BNS Iyengar till now. Completed an Ayurvedic course with Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P in his foundation of Ayurveda and also with Dr Ramesh Kumar from the University of Ayurveda in Mysore – India. Completed a Dietary Course called ‘Food is your best medecine’ with the Dr. Veronica Waks M.D., N.D. which is about planning a food plan who works the best with different type of people. More recently in 2018, she stayed under the guidance of well known Ayurvedic author Janesh Vaidya in his center in Kerala to be trained as a Yoga Therapist and integrating Yoga-Ayurvedic program that she is able to teach now. « My experiences make me understand that the key component for health and wellness is traveling into a healing environment, as it is an extraordinary step into the process of self-discovering and how to transform our life with new habits and then sustain this lifestyle for our own health ».  That’s why I choose to use my yoga retreats to guide others for self-discovery and adopting a spiritual practice into their life “Sadhana” and all tools that has benefited me.
