Empowering you to take charge of your health and wellbeing! Ayurveda is the ancient healing tradition of India and translates to ‘Wisdom of Life’. It is a holistic approach to healing the body and mind naturally, maintaining balance and preventing dis-ease. Ayurveda is a vast science, giving us guidelines on every aspect of our life, it's the manual to life that most of us never received! Colette, the host, will share the teachings of Ayurveda, along with her passion for health and wellness, nutrition, yoga, fitness, meditation, pranayama and much more. Always curious and ready to learn, she will be interviewing inspirational people along the way. Colette’s humble wish is to help people connect to their ‘true nature’, to Mother Nature and to each other.
