I’m Sylvana and I am a Certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach. 5 years ago I was working in retail, managing a team of ten people and living deep in the rat race: always on the go, commuting three hours daily, working over hours, never seeming to reach that balance we all crave for and always playing catch-up. This lifestyle really took a toll on my body and soon enough it started protesting, getting to a point where stress had taken over not only my daily life, but also my body. It set in, quietly, in my neck and shoulders and it wasn’t long before it took over my head.
That’s when I decided I will take back control and set my eyes on a 200h TTC – yoga teacher training course – in India. Fast forward to a couple of months later, here I was, freshly unemployed but with a clearer purpose than ever: regaining control over my mind and body.
This is where I had my first encounter with Ayurveda. I ended up in the ayurvedic clinic of our mentor, following a 5-day pacha karma detox treatment, after which I felt reborn. After finishing the TTC, I returned back home determined to know more about this millennia old science. Soon, I found a course on Ayurveda and in 2019 I started the Ayurveda Practitioner Study at Delight Academy. Now, 3 years later, I am ready to help you take back control of your life and find the balance between body, mind and soul.
I created Balanced by Ayurveda as a platform where I can share my knowledge and experiences as well as give you the opportunity of working together through 1 on 1 consultations to achieve the life you want. This is what I call intentional living.
