My Journey to Vita Shakti...

In the age of technology we have all resources and knowledge to thrive. Yet this knowledge without wisdom can break us apart.

Instead of become empowered by the age of technology, we suffer from overload of information, as well as from the demands of work, family, and the pressure of our social-media culture.

 

Instead of merging wisely all that is available to us, with our creative potential, and with who we are, so that we are able to enjoy the journey; we ended up merging "the headline culture" with our stories, fears and projections.

 

The result is a powerful combination that can break us apart, that can make one to loose their own identity, causing anxiety, depression and an array of diseases related to stress.

I am acutely aware of the fact that the state of our mind and stress response, is directly related to our health.  Mind, body, breath and consciousness are the paramount to our overall wellbeing.

 

We have managed to study the Mar’s soil, yet we are unable to master our own mind and body. Basically because we were never taught how to do it with a truly holistic, empowering and health approach strategy.

 

When knowledge becomes wisdom we are able to go within, reflect and critically evaluate the programmings embebed in our consciousness; break them apart and connect to who we really are. 

 

This is called the journey of self-discovery; it is not a change of attitude is a change of perspective; self-discovery is to know who you really are.


My journey to self discovery and healing has led me to study and explore many integrative fields of healthy sciences, from West to East, merging the ancient wisdom with the wonderful technology we have achieved in modern medicine.

 

During my years of clinical practice and training I have developed an interest on how mind can be our best friend for healing and health and how it can also be our worse enemy…

 

As a woman, I have struggled to understand and to adapt to my own hormonal changes and how those ups and downs affected my mind, which in turn affected my body and my health and even my ability to conceive a child...

After years of being infertile, moody, a human atomic bomb of anger and short temper, I came across to experience the  healing powers of healthy diet, yoga and Ayurveda and how a simple change of breath and awareness could transform my entire being……

 

When I finally conceived and I came to experience the blessings and challenges of motherhood, we were able to use this wisdom and transform challenges into opportunities of growth.

Yogic Sciences, Ayurveda, Meditation and Naturopathic Medicine  helped me to understand, see and experience what was there,  hiding in the depths of my subconscious mind and all projections I was putting out there due to those programmings...

 

Some programmings happened because of trauma and bad experiences (just life, huh!?), and others I have caught it, as it I was getting a flu...I would say: "the social media and TV flu....."

 

I was faced with situations, that I thought: How come this is happening? What do I have to do with it? And the same struggles I have seen with my patients and students...

 

But once you transcend the experiences, listen and nurture yourself, without suppressing or ignoring it...Life becomes a bliss...even with all its super challenging moments... 

My passion is to serve and help others so that they can achieve holistic health and wellbeing (Mind-Body-Consciousness). 

 

My extensive and non-stoppable training as well as my personal and clinical experiences gives me the scope to support you in an array of ways so that you can achieve better health and wellbeing. 

I feel blessed  to serve and guide others in their own self discovery and healing journey, in the best way I can with the best I have to offer...
