How I come to Ayurveda?

Standard

My journey down the path of healing arts started in 1995 when I discovered meditation and macrobiotic philosophy.  Along the way, I attended many healing courses, yoga and vedic studies, and learned a lot about aromatherapy, herbalism, massage and energy work.

After I finished my studies at the University of Political Science in Zagreb, Croatia, I continued my work as a journalist for a daily newspaper and as a free-lance reporter for many magazines. For the last 15 years I used my knowledge to combine spiritual ways in my busy corporate lifestyle. After 15 stressfull but successful years in journalism I was ready to achieve a spiritual balance and bring more quality in my Life.

Life & Love brought me to America. Here I finished Ayurvedic education at California College of Ayurveda.

It is my pleasure to go along with you on Your Path of balancing body, mind and soul. Once balanced, you can fill life’s fulfillment, great energy and infinite happiness.

I am here to educate you, guide and encourage you on your path to balancing body, soul and mind.

I truly believe none of us was born to suffer or be sick. We are here to feel and experience this beautiful world from within and without. We are here to experience ultimate health which brings us to realize our dharma (Life Purpose).

We all are small copy of infinite Universe. In each of us reside small piece of Universe, a bit of God… Allow the simple grace of your being. Allow yourself to receive the Light of the Infinite… Light of Ayurveda.

Ayurvedic Consultations

Standard

Ayurvedic medical tradition believes that each person’s path toward optimal health is unique because each person is unique. Ayurvedic path of healing often takes longer than western healing, but changes are deeper; goal is to remove root cause of disease, not only symptoms. A general rule is that it takes 6 months to one year to restore balance depending on how long there was a disbalance and how strong is one’s desire to change. Most people however begin to feel better in a much shorter period of time, often, just a couple of weeks to a month. However, everyone is different. How long it will take you depends on how well you follow my directions…

Abhyanga massage for Woman

Standard

Ayurveda states that oil is to the body as love is to the soul. We regularly “oleate” our cars and other machines but often forget to “oleate” our bodies.

The way of Ayurveda is the tradition of massage which becomes an important ritual to celebrate the purification of body and mind. Luxuriously relaxing, blissfully comforting, the Abhyanga massage gently applies warm oils to relieve accumulated stress and toxins from the body and mind as well.  It is nourishing for all body types.

Utilizing the ayurvedic principles of  dosha  we accede to anyone individually, using different oils according to proper constitution and dosha (cooling coconut oil for balancing excess pitta or for treating cellulite, warm sesame oil to stimulate circulation for almost always cold vata…) In our practice, we use medicated oils and aromatherapy essential oils as well.

PROMO PRICE – AYURVEDIC BODY MASSAGE::

1 hour = $65 (regular price = $100)

Please make an appointment at: 310 283 7872 or email: tanja@lightofayurveda.com

Some of the benefits that can be expected from the regular performance of this pleasant warm oil ritual:

•    Increased circulation, especially to nerve endings
•    Toning of the muscles and the whole physiology
•    Calming for the nerves
•    Lubrication of the joints
•    Increased mental alertness
•    Improved elimination of impurities from the body
•    Softer, smoother skin
•    Increased levels of stamina through the day
•    Better, deeper sleep at night
•    Relieves fatigue
•    Promotes health in many ways.


VATA: SESAME OIL
Vata nature types tend to be cold, that’s why sesame oil (warm in nature) is best for Vata. Massaging the body with sesame oil quickly improves circulation and promotes healing tissues. Sesame oil has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anticancer effects on the skin.

PITTA: COCONUT OIL
Always hot pitta types enjoy cooling coconut oil! Great for menopausal women experiencing hot flashes.

KAPHA: SAFFLOWER OIL
Kapha nature is heavy, and safflower oil is the lightest of oils, that’s why it especially benefits Kapha.

Ayurveda recommends different base oils and aroma blends depending on what you are attempting to balance. Coconut oil, for example, is an excellent cooling base oil. When combined with a relaxing aroma oil such as lavender, this massage oil will be effective in cooling down the mind, body and emotions. Sweet Orange or Geranium Rose aroma oils are fragrant and relaxing, Basil and Rosemary are vibrant pick-me-ups…

VATA

Standard

Swift as a deer, cold as ice. The coldness of the harsh winds against the variegated of the desert nights – such is the nature of Vata. Vata, the mobile force of the Universe, is influenced by the air and space element. Vata permeates the subtle body. In essence, Vata and Kapha are the two opposite extremes, which are regulated by Pitta. At the cosmic level, Kapha is the food force, Vata is the mobile force, and Pitta the dynamic force of dream.

PITTA

Standard

The brilliance of a raging fire dragon in the city of sparkling gems – such is the nature of Pitta. Pitta is influenced by the fire element, which is the dynamic dream force of the Universe. Pitta permeates the mental body. They are blessed with a great intelligence. And they also have the greatest capacity for a sattvic mind – a mind that is free from fetters of living, a mind that is in harmony with the universe, a mind that achieves balance. When Pitta knocks down the obstacle of its own self-centered ego, Pitta will begin to discover the real pursuit.
