After finishing her psychology degree at Providence College, she went on to become certified as a Neuromuscular Therapist, a certified practitioner of  Zen Therapy®, and is presently a student of Ayurveda.  Sarah cultivates a child’s innate vibrancy for a lifetime of wellness.  You can email her at Sarah@sarahwellness.com and check out her site www.sarahwellness.com.

Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest health care systems.

Originating in India at least 5,000 years ago, the word ‘ayurveda’ literally means, ‘the science of life.’  This ancient medicinal system aligns a person’s constitution with nature; its goal is to harmonize body, mind and spirit, and this harmony is what prevents disease, treats acute illnesses and conditions, and brings a long and healthy life.

Diet, meditation, massage, and cleansing therapies are amongst the tools used in ayurvedic medicine.  It is an individualized holistic system tailored to the individual’s unique constitution, taking into account his or her hygiene, nutritional needs, social character, and other lifestyle habits.  Dincharya are daily routines recommended for the individual; ritucharya are seasonal regimens; the two together help the Ayurvedic practitioner attain and maintain optimal health on a physical, mental and spiritual level.

To that end, we welcome Sarah Pyne, student, mother, teacher, and lifelong practitioner of Ayurveda.  She offers workshops, classes, meditations, and her exceptionally healing form of bodywork called ZenTherapy.  If you have small children, you won’t want to miss her Parent-Tot Meditation and Storytelling on Thursday mornings from 9:30-10:15 (see the Durga schedule).  We are also looking forward to having Sarah share some of her philosophies and teachings on Tuesday evenings at the start of our yoga classes this Fall (7:15-9:00pm).  Stay tuned for more info on upcoming workshops and meditations.  Contact her directly at sarah@sarahwellness.com or check her website for more information!
