Ayurveda means the ‘knowledge for life’. Arising 4000 years ago from the Indus Valley civilization, renown as a sophisticated and technologically advanced culture, the Ayurvedic tradition is based deeply on nature: the five elements, the seasons of life, and the four pillars of health — Diet (Aahara), Yoga and Exercise (Aasana), Breathing Techniques (Pranayama), and Sleep/Meditation (Nidra). Designed to reveal the unique individuality of each human being, Ayurveda provides the tools to know your intricate self, to modify your lifestyle, to become balanced and healthy, thus ensuring a long and fulfilling life.
Born in India and raised in the foothills of the Himalayas, Lini’s formative years were steeped in the Ayurvedic traditions which have had a profound and lasting influence on her career path and life choices. Moving from India to the mid-west and eventually to Vermont, Lini worked as a therapeutic counselor, organic farmer, botanical medicinal herbalist, nutritional chef, teacher and lifestyle coach. All have informed and lead to her unique, contemporary offering of ancient Ayurvedic wisdom. Today, as an Ayurvedic Nutrition Counselor and Herbalist, the union of her professional experiences brings Lini back to her roots and provides an authentic foundation of blended skills and knowledge for contemporary times.
Combined with a fulfilling personal life as a mother, wife, and community advocate; Lini’s compassionate, creative and calming style brings her unique dimension to her Ayurvedic practice. She is devoted to educating others about the benefits of an Ayurvedic lifestyle and is eager to impart her wisdom providing personalized, individualized lifestyle designs and tools for living a balanced, healing, empowering, and long life.
Lini’s professional Ayurvedic services are intended for anyone at their unique, personal juncture on life’s continuum. She particularly addresses pivotal moments when being authentically in balance is essential to avoid disease and other negative impacts on one’s body and sense of self (physically, mentally and emotionally). Any person experiencing the following life events, will benefit from Ayurveda: major life transitions, depression, stress management, weight management, aging, detoxing, fasting, children’s issues, childhood obesity, menstruation, pre- and post-menopause or surgery.
As your Ayurvedic Nutrition Counselor, Lini provides personal attention and guidance in one-on-one sessions and via long distance.
First, a thorough Ayurvedic assessment informs you and Lini about your unique make-up, your dosha. Together you learn about your individual blend of personality, mentality, emotionality and physicality in relation to nature’s elements and seasons. Lini then provides you with recommendations on lifestyle modifications tailored to your uniqueness.
Lini provides you with the tools of Ayurvedic traditions to fully know yourself and to apply this knowledge to consciously live an authentic life of longevity, happiness and health. Her extensive background in organic farming, healing herbs, and natural cooking add the perfect dimension to your lifestyle enhancement with personal consultations on cooking and eating in bliss.
