Debra’s Wanderue Session: Introduction to Ayurvedic Nutrition
Debra was born and raised in Montreal. She studied the economics of health and education at the London School of Economics, and had a 30 year career managing not for profit organizations in these areas. Parallel to her management career, her interest in health drove her to study mind-body sciences and complementary healthcare modalities. A few years later, she also became both a shiatsu and an energy medicine practitioner.
She had studied extensively, contributed greatly, and nothing seemed to be missing. Then she was exposed to Ayurveda. This 5,000 year old modality was new to her, and it became her passion. Ayurveda (meaning the science of life) is the ancient Indian system of medicine and wellbeing that draws on deep wisdom about the nature of the mind, body, and the environment. Rooted in India, Ayurveda incorporates practices such as massage, meditation, yoga, and a complex understanding of food and herbs. For over 15 years, Ayurveda has been the backbone of Debra’s Nutrition and Lifestyle consulting, with individuals and companies. She also teaches SKY Breath Meditation, Sahaj Samadhi Meditation, and Sri Sri Yoga.
