‘I'm Every Woman - it's all in me’’ Chaka Khan sings in her song, Yes, that's me. Let's face it, we play so many roles in life, and I, for one, have concluded that I will never be one thing. To sum it up, I am a British-born Mauritian dancer, performer, and certified Ayurveda wellness coach.
Ayurveda recognizes that we are all unique individuals with specific body constitutions, not one size fits all. So in the same spirit of our multilayered selves, within my blog, I will unveil the layers I am passionate about, varied and flowingly interconnected. I will share glimpses of my life and tips on living a life in balance through the lens of Dance, Ayurveda, and Mauritius.
Ayurveda is a holistic healthcare system that connects the mind and body and draws on the notion that we are intuitive beings. Given the proper support, our bodies have the innate intelligence to heal us as long as we nurture, nourish, and listen to them :)
As an Ayurvedic coach, I offer coaching sessions and guide others to navigate their health and keep disease away by making conscious lifestyle choices.
Ayurveda is the ancient Indian art of living a more healthy, more vibrant, and wholesome life.

Last but not least, I am a confessed chili pepper and addict, AKA Piment Junkie. The word Piment in Creole - the native language of Mauritius means Chilli peppers = hot. I will introduce you to my Delicious Mauritius, sharing its culture, cuisine, and dance!

I wish to inspire you to live a Life in Balance, encouraging you to be present in the here and now, to dance, move, eat and drink intuitively and sustainably while celebrating life.
