Diet and lifestyle consultation
Multiple chronic conditions are successfully addressed by Ayurvedic methods, which include adjustments in diet and lifestyle.
I recommend having an Ayurvedic consultation when you:
- have already tried several means to manage your condition and are not satisfied with the results;
- have a proactive attitude and are ready to take responsibility for your well-being;
- are not expecting a magic pill that will immediately solve all your problems.
During the initial consultation, we will look into your disorder in detail and set up a therapeutic goal. You will receive suggestions regarding your diet and lifestyle. Most adjustments include the usage of over-the-counter herbs and spices but specific herbs may also be prescribed.
Restoring balance might take a while, so once you start incorporating suggested changes in your daily life and depending on your response to the treatment, further adjustments might be introduced. My main goal is to help you understand your balanced and imbalanced states as soon as possible, so that you can proactively manage your health without relying much on others.
Consultations are available in English, Russian or Dutch and can be conducted remotely (via Skype, Facetime, Whatsapp or similar means).
Initial consultation – £65
Follow-up consultation – £35
Ayurvedic massage is a form of therapy and a great way to relax and detoxify your body and mind. In general, massage improves circulation, enhances skin tone, joint flexibility, improves mood, promotes vitality. Ayurvedic massage is highly recommended when the following problems are present: overall dryness, constipation, insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, fatigue, pains and aches, congestion and stiffness etc.
Ayurvedic massage is usually performed using oils infused with medicinal herbs. The oils are selected according to your body type and your current needs.
The techniques that I use are mainly a combination of traditional Ayurvedic styles from Kerala and Sri-Lanka. The session can be energising or relaxing, depending on your needs.
Massage session 45 minutes – £50

Group Yoga classes
Monday 7:15-8:15pm and 8:25-9:25pm at Yoga and Pilates studio “Time for Health”, 8 Station Road, St Ives, Cambridgeshire, PE27 5BH.
In addition to a Hatha Yoga routine, my classes include elements of dynamic practices like Qigong and Vinyasa. There is a well-proportioned combination of stretching and balancing exercises, drill and relaxation. Whenever practically possible in a group setting, exercises are adjusted to the specific needs of each participant. The main focus of these classes is on building a strong, flexible, and healthy core, increasing vitality through deep relaxation and breaking chronic stress patterns.
Absolute beginners are welcome, as well as advanced practitioners who are interested in gentle and accurate approaches to the body. You are especially welcome if you think you are not flexible enough or that Yoga is only for fit stretchy skinny young people! The main goal of these classes is to help you feel well and welcome in YOUR body.
Individual Yoga sessions
If for some reason you don’t want to attend group classes you can have a few 1:2:1 sessions to start your Yoga journey. In fact, traditionally Yoga was never taught in groups but individually, because we all have different bodies, different capacity and different needs.
1:2:1 sessions are also advisable if there is a particular problem you would like to address. Yoga therapy can be used as a complementary technique to facilitate healing.
The first (intake) session is conducted in St Ives. Afterwards the sessions may be conducted at your place.
Intake or one-off Yoga session (75 minutes) – £50
3 individual Yoga sessions (75 minutes) to be used within 6 weeks – £120
