Ayurveda Presentations

A passionate, entertaining international presenter,
Niika’s approach to sharing Ayurveda brings it to life today.

In professional, academic and workshop-style settings
Niika guides participants to reconnect with that river of wisdom
ever-streaming through our senses, mind and memory,
helping us recognize the wealth of natural intelligence available to each of us at all times.

Niika teaches Ayurveda’s common-sense concepts and vocabulary to illumine an ancient Language of Life all of us can use today to see–and taste, smell, feel and hear!– ourselves and others with clarity, compassion and connection.

Niika demonstrates how Ayurveda is a set of timeless reference points we can rely on to hone our capacity to observe “what is” clearly. Understanding where we are starting–and knowing our therapeutic purpose–is fundamental to any positive healing interaction or design.

Most importantly, Niika shows us how we embrace Ayurvedic principles in all our decisions and actions affecting us, others and our environment–a vital skill we need to develop to restore optimal function and sustain harmonious relationship in our bodies, minds, relationships and surroundings.

  • “I found Niika’s workshop particularly informative and foundational.
    I’ve attended other Ayurveda talks, but until today I was never presented with what was really Ayurveda 101.”

  • “I’d studied Ayurveda with many teachers, but it didn’t resonate with me–in my body–until I worked with Niika. Her insight, care, and translation is powerful. My work with her continues to inform my practice and my teaching.”

  • “Niika presents this ancient tradition in a way any 40 year old woman can understand. She brings it all together to make Ayurveda exciting and relevant – not scary! – for an Italian American Catholic girl like me.”
