WHAT IS AYURVEDA?

Ayurveda is a complete holistic medical system originating in India some say as many as 5000 years ago.  Its taught in Ayurvedic Colleges in India and throughout the world. 

As a holistic model, it views each person as an interconnected unit of body, mind and spirit.  Like traditional Chinese medicine, which arose a little later, Ayurveda recognizes the uniqueness of each individual, and uses diet, lifestyle and herbal medicine as well as hands on treatments to treat and prevent disease and to build and maintain health.  Ayurveda looks to the root cause of each imbalance to bring about an effective cure.  


From an Ayurvedic point of view, health is not simply the absence of disease, but an ongoing state of deep wellbeing that includes balance of the bodily tissues, regular movement and elimination of waste, proper function of the sense organs, and a mind that is satisfied and grounded in Essential Nature.  

Ayurveda is an excellent approach for those wanting to reverse or postpone the disease process as well as for those who want to build good health now, and for the future. For yogis, this knowledge is essential to practice effectively over time. 


To find out how an Ayurvedic approach might support you and what's ailing you, schedule a complimentary discovery session with me.

My allergies improved almost immediately and I now have a template for daily living that works for me in my ordinary life. I have found working with Shannon extremely beneficial to my health and well-being overall and I feel stronger, am sleeping better and my emotional state has improved considerably. After 6 months I was able to see the connections between what I ate, drank, etc with how I felt.

I am invested in self-care at a new level now. At the age of 63, I am in touch with my body and my spirit in ways that feel new and hopeful. I find Shannon to be easy to share with, an excellent listener and very realistic about how much to work on at one time, and how to tailor what I do to my individual needs. I am actually glad I was so desperate for relief that I made the call that started me on my Ayurvedic journey and living life in a new and healthy manner.   THANKS, SHANNON!” -H.A. Seattle

Client Testimonials

 

"I worked regularly with Shannon for over a year and a half, taking her year long mentorship, attending retreats, and engaging in one-on-one coaching.

 

 When I first contacted Shannon I was having a hard time focusing and staying active. My mind felt like it was in a fog. Being a yogi I was aware of Ayurveda but only had scant knowledge of its application and impact on the body, mind and spirit.

After working with Shannon I now have a working knowledge of Ayurvedic principles,  and of how my diet affects my body and mind.Thanks to our work together, I feel clear minded and I am back to a normal level of physical activity.

Shannon has immense knowledge of Ayurvedic practices and dug deep into all the issues I had. She has at her fingertips amazing resources that she taps into to determine causes, identify effects and provide recommendations. 

One of the most important things we worked on was identifying my dosha and how the diet I was eating affected my body. As one knows, changes take time, and results are not always immediate.  I worked with Shannon over a year and half in order  to make the real changes, and incorporate them into my daily life routine. I am most grateful for the my work with  Shannon. I would most likely not feel as great as I do today had I not done this work.

Shannon has  amazing dedication, love and energy which she shares with her clients. This consistent drive of hers to be there and help her clients helped me and provided me (and all her clients)  immeasurable value. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Shannon and to be her student.

I would recommend Shannon to anyone who feels like something isn’t right with their body or mind. If you are feeling sluggish, lack energy to exercise or are having aches and pains in your body that your doctor just can’t put their finger on, I would recommend an Ayurvedic approach and working with Shannon."  -RK, Seattle 

“I worked with Shannon when  I was suffering from the worst seasonal allergies  I had ever experienced. It was the first time in 18 years of Recovery I felt like I could not function in daily life. Having taken a class in Ayurveda for Digestion from Shannon McCall at my local yoga studio, I contacted her for a consultation.

"After our initial conversation by phone, I realized that there were multiple issues I had been minimizing or ignoring. I had low stamina, felt weak,  slept poorly was mildly depressed, among other things. Shannon did an in-depth intake questionnaire on my diet and daily habits and we began working together. We first focused on diet, with a goal of improving my meal choices and meal schedule among other details. We also set up regular yoga sessions with personalized audio practices included. Later we introduced Ayurvedic herbal supplements to my regimen along with other personal self-care practices (recently, use of a Neti pot)."

My allergies improved almost immediately and I now have a template for daily living that works for me in my ordinary life. I have found working with Shannon extremely beneficial to my health and well-being overall. I feel stronger, am sleeping better and my emotional state has improved considerably. After 6 months, I was able to see the connections between what I ate, drank, etc, with how I felt.

I am invested in self-care at a new level now. At the age of 63, I am in touch with my body and spiritin ways that feel new and hopeful.
