Join us for a year of deeply-rooted health & soul nourishment
Build a strong immune system and a peaceful, steady mind by establishing 10 self-nurturing practices of Ayurveda
Feel connected and supported by an optimistic, open-hearted community focused on growth and self-caring
Deepen into a spiritual awareness that fuels your sense of purpose and belonging
The pandemic is reminding us of what we too easily forget...
Good health is the foundation for everything else
When our health starts to crumble, everything is affected - our work, our relationships, our emotions all suffer.
The Inner Wisdom Circle lifts you up through the brilliance of Ayurveda, yoga, and modern behavioral science.
By implementing 10 life-changing practices over the course of a year, your physical and mental health will be completely renewed.
Ultimately, you learn to follow that constant guiding intelligence that we each carry inside — our Inner Wisdom.
Improve your Health in Tangible, Measurable Ways
Ayurveda’s time-tested lifestyle has been practiced and refined for over 5,000 years – and it works. As you move through the program year, you will experience….
- Deeper, more restorative sleep
- Regular, comfortable elimination
- Less isolation
- Easier menstrual cycles, or reduced menopause symptoms
- More consistent energy throughout the day
- Comfortable digestion
- Fewer aches and pains
- A pervasive sense of well-being in your body and mind
Not only will you learn new information, you’ll have my personal guidance and our community’s support to apply it and make lasting changes.
"This has been THE best decision for my mental and physical health!"
I have been participating in the Inner Wisdom Circle for two trimesters now, and I so look forward to class each week! This dedicated time for myself feels like the greatest gift. Ivy leads the class in such a beautiful way and I love that I can never predict what my takeaway will be from our group gatherings or Saturday yoga classes.
It has been THE best decision I made for my mental and physical health to participate in the Inner Wisdom Circle this year - I don't know what I would have done this past year without it! I have made several impactful changes to my daily routines and practices. I have met new friends and feel a true sense of community. This is a very powerful and unique experience. Thank you, Ivy!—SARAH S.
"My relationship to my body is becoming kinder, more responsive, more responsible…"
Ivy is a remarkably gifted teacher and has become my trusted guide in the practice of Ayurveda and yoga, helping me gain valuable ground. In Ayurveda, Ivy’s deep knowledge and experience make her indispensable in refining my practices.
In yoga, Ivy leads by following; that is, she tracks, invites, never imposes. With that, the poses follow organically, with less resistance, allowing MY practice to emerge. My relationship to my body is becoming kinder, more responsive, more responsible. It’s hard to articulate the value she has brought to my life, with her wisdom, her spirit, her friendship.
the inner wisdom circle curriculum
The curriculum is built around 10 foundational practices from the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and yoga.
In your first Trimester, you are introduced to the 10 practices: the What’s, the Why’s, and the How’s. Some new practices will take root instantly, bringing quick results. Others will take more time – and you can take a deep breath, as there is plenty of time. You’ll be introduced to behavioral science concepts to start loosening the hold of old habits.
In your second Trimester, you really dig in: you explore what needs to go in order to make room for new behaviors. You discover ways to work with the hurdles you meet so they don’t stop you from creating what you want. You take inspiration from your fellow Circle members and start to notice a deeper feeling of support and steadiness in your life.
In your third Trimester, you hit your stride: you are truly integrating new behaviors into your routines. You see the effect of positive changes in yourself. You even see others in your life impacted by your new way of being. You are meeting the world in a new way.
why a year-long program?
I’ve been working with clients to improve their health with Ayurveda and yoga for well over a decade, and I have observed how long it takes for new routines to develop and old habits to be replaced by intentional behaviors.
As we move through a year together, we have time to experience our fledgling practices in different seasons. We observe the influence of seasonal cycles on our tendencies and preferences. We learn who we are, and how to deeply support ourselves in creating what we want and what our bodies need.
A year is simply what it takes to establish new behaviors that make a lasting, life-changing impact.
What Ivy's clients say...
"Now I am exercising and meditating regularly..."
Before, I was racing through life without much intentionality and was feeling burnt out from parenting and work. The classes were very grounding and provided structure to try out new tools and learn from the wonderful community that was formed.
Now I’m exercising and meditating regularly, eating more grounding foods, and going to sleep earlier – I feel more in line with the way that I intuitively desire to be living my life.
"I have already noticed more balance in my life"
Ivy’s facilitation and light were a true delight. The class created a great sense of agency in me – in this short time, I have already noticed more balance in my life.
The discussions and exercises are accessible, easy and fun. The group meetings gave me an important, tangible framework on how I may integrate radical self care into my everyday life. Since we learned so many techniques, recipes and practices, I was able to easily integrate the ones that most resonated with my schedule, ability and needs.
Your Inner Wisdom Circle year includes...
Weekly Group Mentoring Sessions
The core of the Inner Wisdom Circle is the weekly online group mentoring sessions with Ivy – part education, part conversation, and part inspiration. Each session we explore one of the foundational practices, a current seasonal influence, or a related concept, and how it all applies to our health and empowerment.
The group is limited in size so our connections can grow in intimacy and there is ample time for all voices. All sessions will be video recorded.
The Group Mentoring Sessions are 75-minutes long, Thursdays, 11:45am-1pm Eastern / 8:45-10am Pacific.
"Saturday Sadhana" Ayuryoga Classes
Approximately every other weekend, enjoy an online yoga class designed to deepen our capacity for inner stillness.
In this gentle practice, we learn and explore asana (physical postures), prānāyāma (breathing practices), meditation, and guided relaxation, all through the lens of Ayurveda.
Classes are easily adapted for different body types and fitness levels. All sessions will be video recorded to support your ongoing practice.
Saturday Sadhana classes are 90-minutes long, 10-11:30am Eastern / 7-8:30am Pacific, 7 per trimester.
Individual Intake Consultation
To support your personal learning, you will have an individual Ayurveda consultation with Ivy in the first month of the program to review your health history and clarify your priorities for the year ahead. This conversation may include personalized food and herb recommendations, or other customized guidance.
Check-in Consultations with Ivy
Every other month, you have a check-in consultation with Ivy to touch base on your current primary focus and to troubleshoot any obstacles you are encountering. These 25-minute conversations help you stay on track with your intentions and offer you personalized support and guidance.
Full Moon-Bathing Celebrations
Each Trimester, we gather online for a full-hearted celebration to honor the full moon with ritual, chanting, stories, creative expression, and other sweet treats! We take in the rasa, or juice, of the full moon, and honor the fullness in our own lives.
Your Own Program Partner
Each member will be paired with another member to help inspire and support each other. Staying in touch regularly helps you work through the course concepts and apply them to your life. Each Trimester, you will be paired with a new partner so you strengthen more relationships in the circle.
Online Forum Moderated by Ivy
Our private online forum serves as a place to share ideas, seek support, post resources, and ask questions between our live meetings.
Guided Practice Audios/Videos to Support Your Routines
You will have access to guided practice recordings to support your routines, including guided yoga sequences, chanting sessions, meditations, pranayama, and deep relaxation.

GET READY TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
"i will continue to use these principles for a lifetime..."
Ivy helped me find balance in my life – she is an inspiration! Through our sessions, I have become more aware of my breath and learned to make time for restoration/meditation. I’ve also learned to make dishes I know are comforting to my soul and belly.
I am forever grateful Ivy came into my life. Her patience and caring nature played an instrumental role as she taught me the Ayurvedic principles I now use in my daily routine. I will continue to use these principles for a lifetime.
"i feel quite naturally myself — optimistic, enthusiastic, and happy."
I’ve had far, far less anxiety and fear. All of that stuff had begun to feel almost normal, but it has lifted and hasn’t returned. I feel quite naturally myself – optimistic, enthusiastic, and happy.
I am also physically rejuvenated, more efficient and effective in my work and my entire life. I feel healthful, empowered and capable. And I feel deeply appreciative for Ivy’s compassion, knowledge and ability to translate a 5,000 year old system of healing in a way that makes it accessible for those of us living busy, demanding lives today.
