HI I'M RANA
I’M HERE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN USE THE ANCIENT SCIENCE AND WISDOM OF AYURVEDA TO ACHIEVE EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, PHYSICAL, AND SPIRITUAL BALANCE IN YOUR LIFE.BECAUSE EATING IS OUR MOST VITAL BODILY FUNCTION, I FOCUS ON HOW FOOD CAN BE USED AS A MEDICINE TO REDUCE STRESS ON YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM, WHICH ALLOWS YOUR BODY AND MIND TO HEAL ITSELF.
I come from a scientific background, having earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Sheffield and a Masters of Science in Nutrition and Human Dietetics from Autonomous University of Barcelona.
I worked as a lab technician at Cadbury, Inc; I also worked at Abbott Laboratories Pharmaceutical Company where I deepened my knowledge in autoimmune diseases.
Building on my scientific approach to health and wellness, I then went on to study the world of Ayurveda. I moved to India and Nepal where I studied with some of the top Ayurvedic practitioners. I became certified as yoga teacher there, and furthered my studies in meditation, and mindfulness.
Upon completing my work there, I moved to the US where I got certified as an Ayurvedic Health Educator by the California College of Ayurveda and an Ayurvedic Chef by Hale Pule in Hawaii.
From there onwards I started hosting Ayurvedic theory and cooking workshops around the world (U.S.A, Spain, Norway, Jordan, and Mexico).
I also worked as a retreat head chef and kitchen consultant for a few months at Nøsen Retreat Center owned by Alexander Medin in Norway where I cooked seasonally for up to 75 people, trained chefs to cook according to Ayurvedic principles, designed menus for their weekend retreats, changed their kitchen environment, and minimized food waste.
I travel frequently - moving around the world to deepen my knowledge by learning from top practitioners and to learn about and incorporate many cultural approaches to health and wellness.
I conduct most of my Ayurvedic counseling sessions online, and occasionally host in-person workshops, retreats, and counseling sessions.
By combining the centuries old teachings of Ayurveda with modern-day Western health philosophies, I aim to teach you the tools and techniques to become your own healer.
