Nourish and nurture your entire being with healing food, sacred music & Ayurvedic wisdom.
Ayurvedic wisdom explains the key to restoring health is to balance your digestion and de-stress your mind. This is the focus for my programs.
An Ayurvedic Program is personalised for your unique body type, state of digestion, current imbalances and what you want to achieve. At the initial consultation I will establish your prakriti body type, and vikriti imbalances, and design your program.
We start with breakfast and the morning routine to set up your day so you have good energy. Once you have learned the morning routine, we move onto lunch then evening routine and how to prepare for a good sleep. After that we talk about foods and fine tune your daily routine and meals.
The food menus are designed to nourish you, cleanse toxins and energise your body. I will teach you how to cook and use spices with daily rituals designed to keep your digestion balanced and you happy!

What Is Ayurveda?
Ayur means life and Veda means knowledge or science.Ayurveda is the knowledge of life, the natural healing system of India and sister science to yoga.It offers complete holistic programs designed to eliminate the root cause of health problems rather than just treating your symptoms.
Ayurveda uses pure foods, herbs and therapies chosen specifically for your constitution and digestive condition to nourish and restore your bodies intelligence and natural ability to heal itself.
Ayurveda’s ancient knowledge has been time tested for over 5,000 years and is recognised by the World Health Organisation as a reputable, natural healing system.
I've been practicing Ayurveda since 2011 and have discovered this timeless ancient wisdom to be a comprehensive holistic system that really works. I have healed from chronic fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. Ayurveda has become the foundation of my daily health routine and for my life!
I formally studied with Dr. Ajit Singh BAMS, and have been practicing since 2011. I came to Ayurveda after suffering for many years with poor mental and physical health and I had tried most healing modalities but nothing gave me lasting relief and contentment.
The profound healing I have received from Ayurveda has literally given me my life back. I have learned how to stay well and I am inspired, qualified and committed to helping you too.
Allow me to walk with you, guide you, and together we can reach your goal.
Wishing you peace, health and happiness!

Everything I create honours the ancient Indian tradition of mantra, yoga and Ayurveda. As a qualified Ayurvedic Practitioner, yogi and sacred music artist, I am deeply inspired by this path because it has healed me of chronic fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. My devotion brings a richness and spiritual energy to my music, teaching, cooking and Ayurvedic therapies to help you nurture your divine beautiful self.
As food nourishes your body, sacred sound feeds your soul. For thousands of years the sages of ancient India have known of the spiritual science of sound, mantra, yoga and Ayurveda for healing the mind and body and have passed on this wisdom to us in an unbroken lineage of the Vedic tradition.
The repetition of Sanskrit mantras and simple, yet inspired melodies invoke powerful healing vibrations that restore peace, harmony and vitality to our inner being and outer worlds, awakening us to the great spirit of love that is our true nature.
Enjoy my offerings with blessings and love x Jo
Love It! Beautiful, spiritual and tranquil music to practice yoga to or just chill out.
I feel like my entire being received the most phenomenal tune up. It was a full body experience to meditate, listen and chant with Jo.
I love the way Jo explains of the science and health benefits behind Ayurvedic nutrition. And her recipes are delicious!
Award Winning Singer Songwriter, Professional Musician, Teacher, Ayurvedic Practitioner.
I'm an award winning songwriter, professional musician, teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner.
I've been singing all my life, but my true musical heart was untouched until I went to India. I fell in love with the healing sounds, exotic instruments and classical ragas that touched my heart and inspired me to record a range of albums for yoga and meditation.
While in India, I also discovered the healing science of Ayurveda and later studied with Dr. S. Ajit, AIAS. This set me on the path to healing myself of chronic fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety and depression.
I've recorded ten albums under my brand Cafe Mantra, authored my first Ayurvedic cookbook and teach harmonium, chanting and Indian classical singing.
I travel Australia and abroad to yoga festivals, yoga retreats and conscious music events to share the sound of spirit and the sacred science of mantra and Ayurveda. When I'm not travelling, I teach and consult at my home in West Haven, Mid North Coast NSW.
