Course was excellent. Every class is different and unique. In each class learning of Ayurvedic philosophy made me look at life from a different perspective and feel so much better about myself. I havent always been so lucky to find a teacher so dedicated, knowledgeable and inspiring as Dr Champika. Her caring attitude is extended to each individual in the class. She would always kept in contact with students through emails and text messages or phone calls. I knew I could ring her anytime if I wanted to talk about anything. I cannot thank her enough for helping me and She is more than just a tutor; she is a friend for life. B.Claire

Dr Champika creates a calm and supportive learning environment ensuring that each student�s confidence is developed. I felt touched by her individualised support both in class and out. Her weekly emails following the class encouraged and reminded us about further reading. Particularly enjoyed the teaching styles and group exercises. Dr Champika is not only a a fantastic practitioner, she is also an excellent teacher. I always look forward to the classes as her classes are very friendly, relaxed and everyone get on well as a family. Dr Champika's great presentation style helped to understand difficult Ayurvedic principles easily.

Manasa -Perfect health through mind-body harmonisation - One day work shop -cost £110 / Date TBC

Mind body interaction is still debated today. How can the mind cause our limbs to move (for example, raising our hand to stop a bus). How can the sense organs cause sensations in the mind? The stress response creates physiological changes that damage the body and accelerate aging. An agitated mind/body system generates entropy, decay and aging. Your own body/mind system is also an expression of the same quantum field that underlies everything in the universe. The course offers practical approaches to balance and revitalize your body and the mind.
