About Ameya



       Ameya’s healing journey with Ayurveda began when she met her teacher Dr. Alakananda Devi at her humble ashram in Boulder, CO in 2000. After developing a close relationship with her, she enrolled in the Alandi Ayurvedic Gurukula in 2001 and graduated as a Panchakarma Therapist in 2003. She began her Panchakarma practice shortly after, as well as teaching workshops on the fundamentals of Ayurveda. In 2004 she became a Certified Massage Therapist to compliment her Panchakarma practice.

         In 2008 she moved her practice Samadhi Ayurveda and Massage to Nevada City, CA. She offers massage, Ayurvedic therapies and Panchakarma detoxification at her office, as well as residential retreats at the Crystal Hermitage Guest House, A private retreat in the Ananda Village spiritual community, in the Sierra Nevada foothills. That year, she also earned a position on the faculty of Alandi Ayurvedic Gurukula as the Panchakarma therapies teacher, traveling back to Boulder, CO every year to train the students in traditional Panchakarma therapies.

         In 2011, Ameya chose to utilize her gifts as a nourishing healer, ayurvedic cook and therapist to assist new mothers through the postpartum transition period and began a new journey as an AyurDoula(Ayurvedic postpartum doula). This has become a new passion for her and compliments her Panchakarma practice very well. She now offers a conscious conception program, which emphasizes both partners to have at least one round of Panchakarma detoxification before conception allowing for a healthy child with a strong constitution to be consciously created.

         Ameya happily lives with her family in rural Nevada City, CA. She enjoys being close with nature, has a large organic garden and devotes much of her time to service and prayer.
