Wellesley, MA United States
Hi! My name is Kathy Mongeau. I am a certified Ayurveda Diet & Lifestyle Consultant graduate from the Kripalu School of Ayurveda. for the past 4 years, I have been offering consultations and seasonal cleanses. I also offer workshops ranging from general Ayurvedic knowledge (101) to more specific interests such as How to Cope with Stress/Anxiety and Rejuvunating your Radiance during the winter months. I hosted these workshops at my house and also at Laughing Dog Yoga Studio where I have been an Anusara-trained yoga teacher for 12 years. I am starting to branch out into other communities to spread the Ayurveda healing techniques. I have been a native in Wellesley for 57 years and have two sons that are grown and away from home. I have been studying Ayurveda initially with Cate Stillman, A Ayurveda Practitioner, previous to Kripalu for 4 years by an online Ayurveda course. I went to one of her workshops where she introduced the Ayurveda Concept for the first time to our yoga studio. I was enthralled with Ayurveda from the start back in 2008 and have only increased my interest and devotion to its teachings. Since 2008, like yoga, Ayurveda has become a hot buzz word, but many people do not know its depth in healing and strengthening qualities. These are the messages I would like to bring to my community and also to branch out into other venues. I was first interested in digestive issues, but now see how Ayurveda has tentacles into all areas of health whether it be physically and/or emotionally driven. I have a great desire to keep learning about the Science of Ayurveda because it is eternal, endless in its evolution and is rewarding to see how it can cure chronic and acute imbalances for others and myself. I am interested in enrolling in your 500-Master Certification Program. Could you please advise me as how to link my website with yours - so that you can review my website.
