Testimonial:

As a yoga teacher, learning the fundamentals of Ayurveda is essential in guiding students through practices that will help them with not only improving Asana practice but also establishing balance in their body and mind through specific poses, pranayama, foods and routines. Without a basic understanding of the seasons and doshas, we may unintentionally leave our students in a state of aggravation instead of ease. Arpita Shah is an incredible teacher, practitioner and leader in Ayurveda and we are fortunate enough to have her in the DFW area! Her training is thorough and her knowledge is continually growing as a dedicated, lifelong learner in yoga and Ayurveda. You can trust that Arpita has your best interests at heart and works to help you find balance in not only your life but is available to consult about your clients’ lives as well as you grow your practice. For the past 8 years, I have said that Yoga has changed my life for the better. Now, sister science, Ayurveda has taken my practice to another level of awareness and overall wellness.
