Ayurveda is a ‘wholistic’, individual science, taking into account your unique constitution and current state of balance. Your whole world, including environment and weather, your genes, work, relationships,seasons and time of life, diet, satiety and desires all influence your current state.

Something for everyone
Whether you are searching for guidance in your daily life, want to experience a healthier life, need to manage stress, need help with disease, want relief from pain, feel uninspired, want rejuvenation, are looking for a gift or simply wish to be pampered, there is a solution for you at Zanti Ayurveda.
As a certified Ayurveda Practitioner, I mesh this ancient science with extensive previous training including Pathology, Medical Research, Nutrition, Fertility and Healing arts to bring you a scientifically supported, holistic and healing experience.
I started my career in pathology, because I didn’t know naturopathy existed. I loved it, but didn’t love the dangerous chemicals needed every day to do my job. Soon after finishing my first degree, I began learning about natural therapies.
Health crises with my children lead me to search for answers the medical profession couldn’t give me and my understanding deepened. I have accumulated over 20 years of experience in the health sciences, including medical research, assisted fertility, wellness and nutrition, had three children and traveled around Australia, before finding my true calling in Ayurveda.
In my happiest, relaxed existence, am a creative. I’ve written songs which may or may not have been pinched by the (terrible) singer, I’ve written poems which found themselves repurposed as epitaphs, I wrote a thesis and my grandmother’s biography. I love crochet, but can’t follow patterns, I like to draw, paint and sew, but a favourite way to spend the day is making a complete mess in my kitchen, creating healing foods and home remedies from scratch.
I try to feed my family and clients with healthful and sustainable choices, have a balanced life and enjoy the beach. I’m not very funny, but I find others funny and laugh in appropriate times and not. I like to make people feel better. That is my thing. I see pain, I feel angst, I hurt for nature and wish to make it better – I wish to make each place I touch a little better than I found it.
I seem to swim upstream, against the flow. As such, I became a home-schooling mum for five delicious years, seemed to choose different options to those all around me, and threw away (sold our home and business, after much consideration) a great life in the city to travel around Australia for two years.
Perhaps it was because I knew deep down that the current, regular options weren’t working for me … that there had to be something better. Perhaps it was part of my path to finding Ayurveda.
Most of all, I am a facilitator. My five years home-schooling taught me that if I placed appropriate and up-stepping choices in front of my kids, curiosity and nature would do the rest. I can provide you with simple, effective and achievable options for greater health. Then your curiosity and momentum-creating results can do the rest.
I believe my background equips me well to hear you, well. My own health journey helps me to understand and just maybe help you find an emotional trigger or physical factor which has been overlooked. If nothing else, I can help relieve the overstimulation brought about by our modern, rushed and competitive society.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing what can be unravelled together. Welcome to Zanti Ayurveda.
