What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is natural, safe, holistic, non-invasive and cost effective. Digestive health and wellness have been Ayurveda’s specialty for 5,000 years.

The Yoga Veda Institute’s Clinic help clients discover the cause behind issues such as digestive and bowel health, fatigue, insomnia, backaches, stress and gain a better understanding of health problems such as allergies, weight gain, skin and hair issues and so much more.

Our one-to-one consultations address your overall health, nutritional and lifestyle needs, and offer empowering tools to create and maintain the nutritional program that best supports your unique body type in harmony with the rhythms of nature.

Profound Healing. Sustainable Wellbeing: Rethink the Science of Nutrition
Most approaches to nutrition dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins. Yet the one diet does not work for everyone. We have studied all the major dietary theories and use practical lifestyle coaching methods to guide you discover which approach works best for you, including the food and lifestyle choices that best support you. We will also help you to make gradual, lifelong changes that enable you to reach your current and future health goals. 
With Ayurveda, you will explore the holistic nature of nutrition and all of life, through taste, energetics, post-digestive effects, guided meditation, imagery and small group activities.
Weight loss does not have to be an impossible aspiration.

Weight loss does not necessarily mean residing a lifetime of food items deprivation. Losing weight can be done by simply producing wiser alternatives and by working on your appetite, digestion, metabolism and elimination. When you make basic alterations over a duration of time, you will find yourself moving towards perfect health and weight.

Let us help you with an unsurpassed, integrated approach to cleansing your body

Detoxification is a natural body process that is compromised when a person’s system becomes overloaded. Instead of creating lists of restrictions and good and bad foods, we coach you to create a happy, healthy life in a way that is flexible, fun and free of denial and yet involves self-discipline.

You could be advised to creatively address your lifestyle i.e. your physical, mental and emotional well-being through body-centered practices, meditation and dialogue.

The ancient texts of Ayurveda outline specific, healthy, daily and seasonal routines for your constitutional type. Ayurveda can offer profound potentials to heal your life including lifelong tendencies that cause physical and/or emotional discomfort. Ayurvedic classics place special emphasis on the importance of a morning routine, and give specific instructions relating to each sense organ.

The sense organs relate to the channel system of the mind known as the manovahasrotas. When you learn to purify this system with these effective practices, your mind and body are renewed and made even more powerful, and stubborn patterns changed. Learn simple ways to purify this channel system each morning, and thereby facilitate deep change in your life.

As a teen, she struggled with heavy periods, PMS, and to top it all off was prescribed birth control at 14 years old to “balance” her hormones. The medication leads to weight gain, depression and suicidal thoughts and eventually to an eating disorder. Fast forward to her adult years and she added more stress on her body though fitness competitions with extreme diet and exercises. Although she looked great she did not feel great at all and soon realized that things needed to change fast. She took it upon herself to get an education in physical fitness, nutrition, hormonal health coaching, and finally landed upon Ayurveda.

Over the course of 4 years she has seen a dramatic change in her life. She is happier, more energetic, confident, and was able to reverse her hormonal symptoms and increase her fertility. She is now expecting her first baby July 2020 and has helped her clients achieve similar results. She is compassionate and brings a wealth of knowledge to her practice including tools to assist with mental health and wellness such as meditation and self love practices.

Julie McNulty

Julie struggled with the inability to lose weight, suffered major fatigue, depression, insomnia and experienced extreme sugar cravings. She was always on a roller coaster, gaining a ton of weight, and then starving herself to get the weight off. She tried every diet program on earth. If you can name it, she tried it.

The heaviest she ever weighed was 237lbs. Not to say that the scale is “that important” but she was so obese that she was starting to have other health issues as a result. She made a promise to herself that she would never get that obese again. Her legs would swell, her back would hurt, and she was so incredibly tired. She starved herself under the care of a physician and lost most of the weight in just 6 months. Losing weight with such extreme measures was not healthy or recommended. Not only did she put a ton of stress on her body, but the weight came back on and again, and her eating and weight was out of control.

7 years ago, she hit another low point in my life. The weight she had lost crept back on, and again, she felt out of control with her eating habits. Her starting weight was 203lbs. She was obese according to BMI, had no energy, and needed a nap every day just to function. She was constantly sick, and had strep throat 5x in the year prior to starting her health journey. In addition to Strep throat, she always got bronchitis and it wasn’t pretty. She was often sick and it would take months to recover. Following every illness she was always prescribed Antibiotics which always made her feel worse. Little did she know this aggregated her gut health issues. She constantly craved sugar, and ate donuts, ice cream and cookies, DAILY. She survived off 2 pots of coffee and 5 hour energy drinks and was STILL TIRED!

At the time she started her health journey, she was a new mom and had so much guilt because she truly wasn’t happy. She couldn’t even get off the couch to play with her kids. Her physical and mental health was taking its toll.

In April 2013, she began her journey into gut health. She became an advocate for gut health because she was truly able to see and FEEL results. She started introducing healthier habits, incorporating probiotics, herbs and supplements. Since making those changes to benefit her gut, she lost 50lbs. Most importantly, she has KEPT IT OFF. No more roller coaster! Her energy is through the roof, and she no longer drinks coffee to keep going. She’s rarely sick, and her mood has improved by leaps and bounds! She has her confidence back and her cravings for sugar have decreased. It feels good to feel in control of her eating.

For the first time in her life, she has sustained willpower! She loves incorporating healthy foods into her family’s diet and incorporating healthy exercises her entire family can do together.

Small changes can add up to big results if you just never give up.

If you are looking for a solution to your health issues, or you need help losing weight, trust your gut and take the leap. You and your gut, will be so HAPPY you did!

Her search for healing from a long-standing history of depression and anxiety began at the age of 9, experimenting with food, drugs, and alcohol to “self-medicate”. Not surprisingly, seeking control and pain relief through these methods merely compounded the problem. Over the years she met with numerous therapists and doctors, and took many prescription medications. There were some slight improvements over time but nothing that truly addressed the problem beyond masking the pain. Her depressive episodes continued into her mid 30’s, when she discovered Ayurveda in 2014, which provided her with a completely new approach, a truly holistic approach to actual healing.

Through Ayurveda and Yoga she discovered a self-fulfillment and ease of life she previously thought to be unattainable. Today she lives life from a place of joy rather than one of anguish or despair. It is now her desire to share this excitement for life with those who are suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, mental, emotional, and Spiritual issues.

Amalgamating her personal experiences and life lessons with her wide spectrum education and trainings in behaviour change, lifestyle, nutrition and Spirit, she now works with individuals and couples in an organized, approachable, honest and compassionate demeanour that empowers those who are ready for change, to promote a life of ease and fulfillment of their own.
