Cara has been teaching yoga for over 10 years and enjoys incorporating awareness of the breath and the flow of energy in the body into her classes. She loves yoga’s ability to connect both herself and her clients to the space of peace and clarity within.
Through teaching yoga, Cara became interested in the philosophy of Ayurveda. Ayurvedic medicine, along with regular yoga practice, assisted Cara in overcoming a personal health challenge many years ago and it brings her great joy to share her two great passions with others. Cara completed her Advanced Diploma of Ayurveda at the Australian Institute of Higher and Further Education. She worked and trained with Ayurvedic doctor, Dr Satheesh Kumar (BAMS, MPH, MHP) of Jeeva Health, for more than 2 years. This provided precious experience that assisted her to become the ayurvedic practitioner she is today.
“What I love about ayurveda is that it considers everyone to be unique and at the same time, sees the oneness in all things. The concepts of ayurveda helped me not only understand myself better but those in my life. Through my study of ayurveda I gained more self-compassion and self-acceptance. It is wonderful to be able to share my two great passions.”
It is our birth right to shine as our unique and radiant selves, living life in alignment with the heart and sharing our unique gifts with the world.
Using the principles or ayurvedic medicine and yoga, Shining Wellness encourages every person to connect more deeply with themselves, embracing and understanding their uniqueness in body, mind and spirit. Shining Wellness provides a range of personalised tools to assist you in accessing and facilitating this natural healing process for yourself.
This may be through the increased self-understanding provided by an ayurvedic consultation. It may be through the increased calm and self-acceptance that grows through personalised meditation instruction. Or perhaps by the profound relaxation found in an ayurvedic massage or treatment. Or possibly by the deep connection of the breath, body and mind cultivated within a yoga class.
Shining Wellness services include ayurvedic consultations, ayurvedic therapies such as abhyangha (ayurvedic massage) and shirodhara, and yoga classes (both speciality and private classes available).
