Meredith believes in a holistic, nurturing approach to healing by nourishing every aspect of the whole self, including diet, lifestyle, nutrition, yoga, meditation, visualization and creativity to suit individual needs. Ayurveda allows people to be personally responsible for their health and wellbeing, opening the door to complete wellness, creativity and balanced lifestyle by using a full range of healing modalities in one complete, integrated system. This involves an individual health assessment and advice, education and guidance on nutrition, diet and lifestyle. In this way Ayurveda can be life changing and transformative and has a lasting effect on body, mind and spirit, allowing each individual to live to their full potential.
Meredith also facilitates small group workshops in Ayurveda and Yoga, giving individuals an opportunity to experience Ayurvedic Lifestyle, diet and cooking, Yoga practices, herb and spice energetics and creative expression first hand.
