What brought me to NI

In  2004, I was invited to Northern Ireland to head up  the Omni Ayurveda Health and Beauty Centre at the Ramada Hotel. This required me to  train staff to the highest standards,build up a client base and generally ensure that the benefits of Ayurveda were introduced to the people of Northern Ireland. During that time the centre built up a reputation for comfort and quality. I also taught Yoga classes and managed all of the staff.

In January 2009 I decided to branch out on my own and set up my consultancy.  Since then I have built up a private client base and started teaching yoga classes and advanced breathing techniques.

My training in India

Born in Kerala , south of India, I graduated in Ayurveda at “The Government Ayurveda College in Cochin”, one of the most reputed Ayurvedic colleges in India.

I started practice as a junior doctor in one of the Ayurveda Health Clinics in Kerala, executing treatments for chronic disorders, health rehabilitation and relaxation.

I also successfully treated sports injuries, post accident cases, arthritis , fibromyalgia, and other neuro- muscular problems.

From July 1996 to February 2002 I successfully ran the Ayurveda Health Spa at Coconut Lagoon Heritage Restort in Kerala.
