Ayurveda is a sister science to yoga that teaches us to live life to the fullest and to create and maintain vibrant health by keeping in rhythm with Mother Nature. “Ayur” means life and “veda” means wisdom and it is by following this ancient road map of life wisdom.
Ayurveda has been a cherished companion for me while healing my Traumatic Brain Injury and I hope to inspire you to do incorporate some of these ayurvedic principles for your own healing.
Bethany Cantin is a vibrant and inspirational yoga therapist and ayurvedic practitioner who, after 15 + years of guiding others to deepen their connection to life, found herself struggling dearly to hold on to her own connection to life due to a traumatic brain Injury (TBI) and Post Concussion syndrome (PCS) after a bad car accident in the winter of 2015 that brought her life and career to a complete halt.
She has spent over a year slowly healing her TBI primarily through the Eastern modalities of yoga, pranayama, meditation and ayurveda, to nurture and support her healing along the way. She has also found great value in Western therapies like vestibular, speech and occupational.
Her experience with this life altering TBI has inspired her to devote this next stage of her career to helping others navigate the waters of PCS and TBI with support, ayurvedic wisdom, patience and grace.
Bethany offers Ayurvedic consultations, private yoga and meditation sessions (in person and via Skype) for TBI / PCS survivors and their caretakers. She is also writing a book entitled. Healing your Traumatic Brain injury at the Speed of Mother Nature.
