A Word from Our Founder

I truly believe that our states of dis-ease often come from our desire to keep our lives organized in ways that do not integrate all that we are. 

We separate our day at work from our day at home, our hobbies from our professional activities, sometimes even our groups of friends. The truth is, it is only when we learn to accept that these parts of our selves make sense together, rather than in isolation, that we start to live FULL, HAPPY LIVES.

As I started teaching Yoga, Ayurveda and other modalities, I also realized that it would be foolish to focus on only teaching the craft, and that instead the real power of those practices was in empowering people to realize their own potential and ability for self-healing.

With the Holistic Initiative, I want to offer you the opportunity to support all the parts of your life that need your attention: from small batch, handcrafted oil blends to education you can access and study at your own pace from the comfort of your home, I hope you will remember that everything you need is within you. Let's make our way home together.
