Studying full time and undergoing an internship for four years through Manipal University, Karin realised a long-held dream of pursuing a life of practicing Ayurvedic medicine. She graduated with honours and began her practicum at Alvas College, Moodbidri Karnataka under the tutelage and supervision of Dr Aithal.

Karin had the opportunity to complete her practicum at Ayurcare, a private practice operated by Dr Gautham, a well-known Ayurvedic physician in Mangalore, Karnataka. An inspiration, a delight and a privilege to work with, Dr Gautham was an incredible source of information and guidance.

Dr Mahadevan is an inspiration to Karin and a Guru of Ayurveda. He provides Karin with support, teaching and guidance to this day and is closely associated with Lakshmi Ayurveda Academy.
Karin also deeply acknowledges her teacher Dr Gayathri Bhat, her Professor of Prasoothi Tantra and Stree Roga, Ayurvedic Gynaecology and women’s health, whose guidance always enlightens and inspires.
