Student Testimonials

Marisa documents her time at Ayurveda Rituals on Instagram.

A video testimonial of Yana Bozhok of Mind & Body Esthetics

“Learning the art of abyanga with Andrea was a life changing experience. Her spiritual devotion and dedication are the foundation to her approach. It’s not just an understanding and training on technique and the application of oil (though that is very much there) but more about a way of expressing energy from the heart through your hands. She opened a doorway and facilitated a deep energetic healing which began with me and then I felt it communicate into others bodies through my hands. I recommend her trainings very highly. I learned so much. She generously shares healing and spiritual philosophy from the Vedas and Hinduism which makes it a very three dimensional experience and will deepen your understanding and practice of Yoga.”
