Ayurveda One-On-One Guidance

Creative Space Yoga and Ayurveda

Wanda Lambeth, E-RYT

Ayurveda Yoga Teacher

There is a deep sense of satisfaction and joy in knowing you can trust your intuition and in reclaiming your own health……especially in these times.  This is how we all want to feel.  Begin by asking yourself a few soul-searching questions:

  1. Are you ready for real change in how you have been looking at your own state of health?
  2. Are you ready and willing to commit to putting in the time and looking honestly at where you may be setting up your own road blocks to optimal health?
  3. Is there something about Ayurveda that lights a spark of interest and excitement for you?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, or even a tentative maybe, this is the message – the time – for you to take that first step toward mastering the rest of your own life through the wisdom of Ayurveda. 

I don’t have all the answers and there is no quick fix.  I wish there was but there isn’t.  However, there are things we can do that truly begin to feel like common sense and we notice we are finally coming home to ourselves – mentally, emotionally and physically.  Sometimes we just need that guiding hand to get us there.

This is where I come in.

Together, we will explore our true selves and what our unique individuality needs to thrive, not just survive. We will do this using the ancient, holistic and time-proven principles of Ayurveda as our tools to help build a better, healthier and sustainable lifestyle.

Learning the basics of Ayurveda through a group setting is fantastic.  One-on-one goes deeper, is more uniquely tailored, and full attention can be paid to the individual.  What you will receive in your one-on-one consultation time:

  • Guided assistance in determining your dosha through exploring natural state of health versus current state of health
  • Dietary recommendations as part of your journey back to your natural state of health
  • Lifestyle recommendations: establishing daily healthy routines & active lifestyle choices
  • Optional weekly follow-ups based on the length of the program you choose

*Ideally, you will have completed the Ayurveda Transformation Workshop series with me however this is not a pre-requisite.

My qualifications:

I have over 1500 hours of Yoga teaching experience and 300 hours of training in various yoga styles such as Hatha, Trauma informed, Chair, Restorative and most recently, Ayurveda Yoga Teacher certification.  The Ayurveda Yoga Teacher training allows me to:

  • Provide guided assistance in determining dosha (body/mind constitution) through the use of Ayurvedic tools & exploration of past & current health states
  • Recommend dosha-appropriate nutritional choices and help in establishing healthy practices
  • Design and lead holistic yoga classes and workshops that include breath, mudra, mantra and meditation practices in group or individual settings
  • Create personalized programs of Ayurveda lifestyle recommendations in one-on-one consultations

What I do NOT do as an Ayurveda Yoga Teacher is:

  • Diagnose medical conditions
  • Prescribe herbal remedies or treatments

Note: If you have medical conditions that require a professional diagnosis, and you are interested in pursuing an in-depth Ayurvedic modality, I encourage you to please contact an Ayurvedic Practitioner or Ayurvedic Doctor.

We all want to work our way toward Perfect Health. As an Ayurveda Yoga Teacher, I am a lifelong learner and continue to embody the authentic wisdom and teachings of this incredible 5000 year old practice.  I feel inspired and excited to be able to share this learning with you as we work together. I like to think of us as “partners in progress”, with my method being one of guiding with kindness, collaboration and non-judgment while providing the tools, and allowing you to absorb and learn at your own pace and in your own manner.

JOIN US FOR YOGA FOR LIFE – ZOOM STYLE!!

The world has changed dramatically over the past several months and we are all learning to adjust to new ways to keep creating our lives and being the best we can be.  One of the beautiful ways we have discovered to stay connected with family and friends and keep our work lives going, is through ZOOM, virtual learning and visiting.  Yoga For Life is embracing the new virtual method and students are creating sacred spaces in their own homes, loving the ability to continue their yoga practice as well as stay in touch with the yogi community.  I’m so blessed and honoured to be able to provide this. 

Join us for ZOOM Yoga For Life practices from anywhere in the world!!

When:  Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 10-11 a.m. PST AND Monday and Wednesday evenings 6-7 p.m.

Cost:  $10 per class, payable via e-transfer to creativespaceyoga8@gmail.com.  Punch cards are available in a 10 pack or 20 pack i.e. $100 for 10 classes and $200 for 20. The “punch cards” never expire and they are kept track of in a drop-in basis so you are not committed to any one class time.

This is an all levels practice, with plenty of ways to learn new yoga for newcomers and also opportunities to challenge yourselves for experienced yogis.  We have fun – we learn – we gain strength and flexibility – we make friends.  WE JUST FEEL SO GOOD!!  Please email me at creativespaceyoga8@gmail.com for more info.  Blessings and Namaste.
