Testimonials

Bryan and I took this course with Maryna in January at NRIM in Wallingford. After so many years and attempts at Ayurvedic classes, I was finally able to learn and understand Ayurvedic foundations through Maryna's well organized 6 week course. Her slides were excellent and she tailored them adding Sanskrit names for me. Our first consultations were thorough and we learned so much about our doshas and conditions, were setup with herbal medicines and given much generous support from Maryna. She is a smart Ayurvedic practioner, a great teacher and a loving peaceful person. If you've wanted to learn Ayurvedic lifestyle foundation in Seattle this is a wonderful opportunity~!! It is 6 - two hour classes and two consultations with Maryna. I'm so grateful that you offered this Maryna Stasiuk, thank you so much!!❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
