We first met Susan when my family and I had an intro session with her. Since then, I have been so impressed with her ability to connect with others, quickly get to the roots of our discomfort (both physical and mental), and then offer holistic solutions for wellbeing rooted in Ayurveda. Her background in Ayurveda combined with her ability to listen deeply and empathically is what drew us to her. Since that first visit, we have been part of her 3-month program and recommended many friends and family to see her. In all cases, everyone has come back with glowing feedback. Highly recommend!

Working with Susan over the past three months has been enlightening. I've learned the importance of routine in my life and integrating certain elements has helped me achieve my goals. Understanding that everyone operates differently has made me more accepting of others and more compassionate towards difficult people. My energy levels have increased over time, as has my appetite. Taking time to rest without feeling guilty has relieved the constant nagging feeling of not doing enough. Learning when to stop or continue certain activities has helped me better manage my time. I've also noticed improvements in my bowel movements and become more aware of the signals my body sends, enabling me to make healthier choices. My relationship with food and loved ones has changed as I now act from a place of compassion rather than impulse, fostering healthier connections. I thoroughly enjoyed each session with Susan. Every week brought something new and interesting, and I always looked forward to our next meeting. Susan is an amazing person, and the connection I've made with her is one I will always cherish. The experience of implementing Ayurveda into my daily routine has become a lifelong journey for me.

I just completed Susan's 3 month online Ayurveda program. I had studied Ayurveda for several years before, but having a 1-1 coach really helped me focus on specific individual issues, in a supportive and safe environment. I loved starting each session with a meditation. Susan has a lovely, calm energy and she is non-judgmental and encouraging. I focused on incorporating mindfulness throughout my daily activities, starting my day with inner focus before turning on the computer, eating slowly and chewing

I went to an Ayurvedic practitioner 20 years ago who started me on the path of the sciences of life. That success, armed with a lot of study and research, taught me that my bipolar diagnosis was an energy imbalance from seasonal fluctuations and my food choices.
Recently I figured I needed a tuneup. The course work was insightful, highlighting points that I had forgotten.
Meditation was especially helpful. I have done a lot of alternate nostril meditation for stress control and blood pressure control. However, other types of guided meditation focused and redirected energy to other areas of the body that really needed it.
By giving up iced drinks and drinking warm water through the day, the ama in my mouth is pretty well gone. Now when I brush my teeth, that plaque is not there. I used to have to floss to clean my teeth thoroughly and that junk is no longer there.
A recent doctor visit confirmed, that for the first time in my life, my cholesterol is within normal ranges. All other tests were perfect also.
Small changes can bring big results. I'm looking forward to continuing the life studies.

I signed up for a 3-month wellness counseling/coaching program with Susan, and it was a wonderful experience.

I have been studying Ayurveda for a year on my own, so it was really helpful to have a guide to teach me more about how to live with Ayurveda, not just study it :)

I feel better digestion because with mediations I could create space with awareness to see how I was over-snacking and adding stress to my body... the 3 months were a perfect length for me because there is time to integrate the lessons and reflect on the new insights.

The coaching experience was emotional, but it never felt "hard". There are very profound questions that allowed me to pause and reflect on my life in a way that I was seeking for a while. And Susan created the perfect conditions for me to learn more about myself, practice taking very graceful, practical steps to living a life that is harmonious with myself, what I desire, what makes me feel good, and what makes me feel more alive. She really emphasizes being practical, and for someone like me who tends to take on more than I can handle, her delivery and coaching style was incredibly healing.

I'm beyond grateful for the connection, and learned so much, and changed in subtle ways that feel very deep and steady :)

I did the 6-session online Ayurveda course and it has already started changing my life. I came to her on recommendation and was experiencing uncomfortable digestive issues. Susan made me aware of how important mindfulness is around eating and within the first week I was already implementing new strategies and feeling more comfortable. Susan is clearly an expert at her craft and I would recommend this course to anyone who wants more control over their eating and their comfort level around digestion and body peacefulness. I look forward to staying in touch and wish this business much success.

Hello All:

Since visiting Auroville in early 2020, I have had the extreme privilege of doing two sessions of Ayurvedic coaching with Susan.

I've lost about 7-8 pounds, not being on a diet for a moment, and having more enjoyment of food than ever. I've learned to incorporate Ayurveda into Western cooking, and also learned some new simple and delicious Indian dishes that I made during quarantine.

Both my digestion and sleep dramatically improved! I also gained renewed clarity as to my purpose and direction at this point in life. Beautiful changes also occurred in my near daily asana practice.

Susan is deeply insightful, and full of knowledge presented in an easy-to-learn and non-dogmatic manner. Ayurveda is now a life-long source of wisdom and practical knowledge...integrated in my life. thank you

Susan is the real deal....no venture capitalists or slick advertising.
It is all real and from the heart.

Highly and totally recommended.

I have just completed Susan's 3 month online Ayurveda course and found it a wonderful, enlightening experience. Her course really helped me to become more aware of my diet and lifestyle habits and I have since been able to make changes that have made me feel healthier and happier. I would highly recommend her course to anybody with an interest in Ayurveda and wants to learn how it can improve your health and wellbeing. Susan is a delightful teacher with a vast knowledge of Ayurveda and presents her course in a way that makes it highly achievable to incorporate into your daily life.
I particularly enjoyed our online meet ups as I felt I really got to know Susan and look forward to a time in the future when I can visit her in India.

Lucky me that happened upon Susan's Chai-Yurveda clinic on a short trip to Auroville. She was just that I wanted - someone to explain and guide me about how to incorporate Ayurvedic dietary principles into my world.
Susan has a wealth of knowledge and obvious passion for Ayurvedic nutrition and all that it can do to improve the lives of others. And her care for her clients follows through long after the initial consultation. If you are ever in Auroville, spending time with Susan and diving more deeply into what Ayurveda can offer you is an excellent bonus to any visit.

Susan is a highly knowledgeable, compassionate and infinitely realistic Ayurveda teacher. She is non-corporate and homespun to the core. Studying Ayurveda with her while in Auroville and then remotely has been an immense growth experience.

Little did I know that upon leaving Auroville that the pandemic was right around the corner. When I returned home, she gave me weekly assignments (that didn't take too much time) and helped me apply practical take-aways to my life. Consequently, my health and overall outlook greatly improved. Here's how:

*Improved sleep and digestion;
*Easy, healthy, everyday recipes that leave me feeling nourished and satiated;
*Lost five pounds;
*Brighter eyes;
*Clarity as to my purpose in life, at a particular cross-roads;
*Creation of a daily routine that is doable and effective;
*An enthusiasm that everyone in my life can see.

Of course, you can learn with Susan if you are in Auroville. But, really, you can learn with her from anywhere in the world. That being said, you might just want to take off for South India....once the pandemic is over.
