Welcome to the world’s oldest living knowledge!

Ayurveda is the 5000 year old original science that helps us to understand the way the body works.

It explains who we are, how we work, and the best use of the body to live a happy life.

What works for someone else, may not work for you.

The secret of Ayurveda is to figure out what is intrinsically good for you and then live according to that.

Ayurveda provides the tools to live an optimal life through good diet and healthy lifestyle choices.

"I was so fortunate years ago to take a course in Ayurvedic cooking from Karuna at the Heights School of Yoga when I was a student there. At that time I was in the early stages of recovery from years of undiagnosed Celiac disease and the resulting gastrointestinal distress it brings. I was aware of the need to design my meals around my type and consulted Karuna to learn what foods were recommended and what to avoid. This was a tremendous help to me as I healed. Because I was working so much, I hired her to cook for me for many weeks so I could feel better fast. It worked better than I could have imagined as I enjoyed the meals, and the speedy recovery.
I would heartily recommend Karuna as a teacher and practitioner. I have been exposed to the alternative health field for 50 years and she is superb."
