Ariadna is an Ayurvedic medicine practitioner, teacher and writer. For the past twelve years, Ariadna has dedicated herself exclusively to the study and practice of Ayurveda, with a special interest in women’s healthcare. Inspired by her teachers, she has now launched VitalVeda, a project designed to serve as a platform for healing, learning and growing. Ariadna lives in Bath, UK, where she consults and shares her knowledge and experience.
Ariadna completed her Postgraduate Diploma of Ayurvedic Medicine (PGDAM) in 2003 at the London College of Ayurveda, after serving as an intern at the renowned AVP Hospital of Coimbatore, and in Pune, India. After qualifying, Ariadna began to work at the Kailash Centre of Oriental Medicine, London. Prior to this, Ariadna worked for the NHS as a health care assistant at Central Middlesex Hospital, London.
Eager to deepen her knowledge and skills, Ariadna travelled to India again, and approached Dr Liladhar Gupta, who accepted her as his student at his clinic for two years. During this time, Ariadna had the privilege to learn from a fourth-generation Ayurvedic doctor and spend time at the family’s project, Dhanwantari Dham Ayurveda Centre. In 2005, Ariadna pursued further academic studies and began her BSc degree in Ayurveda from Manipal University, India. She completed her internship in 2009 at the SDM Ayurveda Hospital, Udupi, where she had the opportunity to study under Dr Mamatha, the leading gynaecologist of the Hospital.
Ariadna has practised yoga since childhood, her mother being a yoga teacher and a health professional. Ariadna is inspired to share Bhakti yoga, for the healing benefits it offers and the sacredness it brings back into our lives.
