Guided, Gracious, Gradual

Let us guide you through the process of incorporating Ayurvedic principles into your life. While our Ayurvedic Consultations are holistic and can be stand-alone services, you may wish you to dive deeper and have more one-on-one guidance. Choose from one of our Wellness Coaching offerings to immerse yourself in the teachings of Ayurveda and receive specialized advice and instruction to address your unique dosha and doshic imbalances.

Ayurveda is not “one size fits all.” Each person is an individual with their own unique combination of the three dosha. Because of this, specialized guidance is highly recommended. After you have received your initial Ayurvedic Consultation, we will monitor your progress through one of our Ayurvedic Wellness Coaching offerings. Choose from a 3 or 6 month program, where we will meet twice per month to refine, reformulate and revise the Ayurvedic protocols based on how your body/mind is reacting and adapting. Choosing one of our Wellness Coaching programs will help you to navigate the teachings and recommendations of Ayurveda with more personalized guidance. This will also allow you to make gradual, long-lasting changes to your lifestyle and diet. We will keep you on track as well as give you individualized advice as you incorporate Ayurvedic principles into your daily life.

These programs are for clients who are looking to immerse themselves in the Ayurvedic lifestyle. During each session, you will walkthrough your personalized Ayurvedic recommendations with us by your side. As we guide you through the Ayurvedic principles at each session, you will learn hands-on techniques and receive individualized private classes in Ayurvedic cooking; yoga, pranayama, meditation and mantra; Dinacharya, the Ayurvedic daily routine; and Ayurvedic skincare and haircare. This program takes our Ayurvedic Consultations to the next level by teaching you how to incorporate your personalized Ayurvedic recommendations into your life. Each sessions is specialized to meet your wellness goals as well as your unique dosha and doshic imbalances.

Testimonials

 

She encouraged me to make small changes a little bit at a time

I had a amazing Ayurvedic consultation with Marissa. About a week later, she sent me an incredibly thorough packet with all her findings and recommendations and went over them all with me in detail. At the time I was dealing with frequent headaches and irregular periods. Marissa is very knowledgeable and not only gave me recommendations for panchakarma, daily routines, exercises and diet, but she also offered many resources for where I could get products that I would need. She encouraged me to make small changes a little bit at a time so that all of her recommendations didn't feel too overwhelming. I didn't incorporate ALL of her recommendations into my lifestyle, but even some of the smaller changes made a huge difference for me.

Incredible blend of compassion, knowledge and intuition

"Marissa brings an incredible blend of compassion, knowledge and intuition to her Ayurvedic practice. In my consultation with her she gave me so much useful information and answered questions with expertise but also spaciousness. I didn't feel pressured to adopt an entire food regime that was beyond my current discipline level, but I also felt guided to make some choices that could help me. Her explanation of Ayurveda and the reasoning behind her recommendations were thorough and phrased in language I could easily understand. Marissa's skill as an intuitive healer were also apparent and added incredible depth to her knowledge and expertise. I highly recommend Five Prana and Marissa!"
