Dive deep into the life-sustaining guidance of Ayurveda, yoga and behavioral science
Refuel consistently with weekly live meetings, email video teachings, and on-demand practice library

"it's been transformational for me "
I'm so glad to have joined the Inner Wisdom Circle when I did. It's been a perfect group to support graceful transformation of my habits. Every week I get great tips for improving my health and well-being and connect with supportive people who hold space and model the growth that is possible.
Ivy is a fantastic facilitator, sharing teachings from her Ayurvedic practice and incorporating the wisdom of the group in our sessions. I feel supported and guided towards new habits but never judged. I'm learning to approach health and wellness with spaciousness, joy, and “just enough” practices and it's been transformational for me.
"The changes I've made have been tremendous"
Before I joined, I was contending with two big challenges – a many-years-long chronic illness and a deeply entrenched tendency to overwork. And I was under no illusion that those were unrelated! I had been working hard to do less and I knew those patterns wouldn’t shift overnight. Now, I can say that it’s actually, miraculously happening.
Ivy’s video teachings are rich, and they really come to life in our weekly discussions. The partner system has given me a welcome voice of compassion when I run into frustration, and some much needed accountability. The ayuryoga sessions are just amazing. And having regular access to Ivy’s wisdom in consultations has been so helpful and grounding.
The fact that the program lasts a year helped me keep a sense of spaciousness around the shifts I wanted to make. It’s enough time to develop a meaningful relationship with these practices, instead of a bunch of stuff I’m trying to change overnight (which really doesn’t work). I'’m already looking back with awe: The changes I’ve made have been tremendous. I’m so grateful for the gifts of this program.

"I'm in tune with my body & with what's meaningful for me."
One thing that attracted me to the Inner Wisdom Circle and the teachings of Ayurveda was how it lifts up nature - how being aligned with nature is part of the healing.
Nature is one way I connect with God and am attuned to my spirituality, and the circle helps me be in tune with my body and with what’s meaningful for me. It helps me feel whole. I have struggled with perfectionism and shame, and what has been so powerful about the group is hearing other people’s stories, taking small steps, and being reminded that we already have what we need inside of us. Those reminders helped me to embrace the practices and really absorb them.
One of the changes that just manifested without me even being really intentional about it was the practice of movement - it just naturally happened. Now I am regularly doing movement that helps me enjoy my body, have fun, and connect with others, and it has felt so healing to do that - not by shaming myself into it, but by slowly doing the other practices that lead up to this one, so it just happened on its own.
I’m so glad I joined the Inner Wisdom Circle because it changes not only our physical health but our spiritual and emotional health. There are not too many places that create space for individuals to heal and experience wholeness. That’s what the Inner Wisdom Circle does.
"Now I really show up for myself"
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 resolve health issues by applying the wisdom of Ayurveda and yoga for well over a decade, and I've observed how long it can take to develop new self-nurturing routines.
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 self-caring routines that make a lasting, life-changing impact.
What Members are Saying . . .
"This has been THE best decision for my mental and physical health!"
I have been participating in the Inner Wisdom Circle, and I so look forward to our meetings 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 .
It has been THE best decision I made for my mental and physical health to participate in the Inner Wisdom Circle - 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!
"I am sleeping better!"
Ivy is a wonderful teacher who has created a really special community. She shares ancient wisdom backed by modern research, for some very simple, and yet very powerful, habits for leading a healthier life. I have been so glad to be a part of this group, and not just because I am sleeping better! The community she has brought together creates a great supportive environment and I have made some good new friends as a result. Signing up for this was a wonderful gift I gave myself.

"Now I prioritize what is meaningful to me."
I've noticed several amazing shifts due to my time in the Inner Wisdom Circle. I've been able to structure my time to prioritize what is meaningful to me rather than social or cultural norms of acceptability. I used to treat movement and play as things you did after being productive. Now, I consider those essential parts of my day. I work less in order to have time for my daily yoga practice, reading, cultivating relationships, and being present with myself. I say yes to more opportunities for exploration and meeting new people.

Your Inner Wisdom Circle year includes...
Weekly Group Mentoring Meetings
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 or a relevant teaching. We may have breakout groups, or stay in one interactive group discussion. We may do an experiential exercise, or share on a topic.
The group is limited in size so our connections can grow in intimacy and there is ample time for all voices.
Thursdays, 11:45am-1pm ET / 8:45-10am PT (75-minutes)
ALL LIVE SESSIONS VIDEO RECORDED
Ayuryoga Video Library
Explore an extensive library of guided yoga practices designed to deepen your capacity for healing and inner stillness.
In Ayuryoga, we incorporate āsana (physical postures), prānāyāma (breathing practices), meditation, and guided relaxation, all customized to fit your needs through the lens of Ayurveda.
Our videos range from short explanations of a specific technique, to brief 20-minute practices to fit into your morning routine, to full 75-minute practices for those days when you have more time to dive deep.
This gentle practice style is easily adapted for different body types and a variety of experience and fitness levels.

GET READY TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE
"I feel healthier with more energy and clarity"
The Inner Wisdom Circle has been a profound gift over this past year! I have tried for years on my own to do seemingly simple practices, like going to bed earlier, with limited regularity. In a gentle way, being part of this group helped me re-examine and lay some foundational daily habits that have collectiely made me feel healthier with more energy and clarity.
Ivy’s years of study, care, and wisdom infuse each gathering, and the elements of time, support, and repetition make the process surprisingly effective. This wonderful group has given me more confidence in my ability to care for myself and to live in greater rhythm with the earth. Thank you, Ivy!
"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.
