Tools of the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Educator

The purpose of this listing is to identify and acquaint the educator and client with the wide range of resources available and potentially beneficial to the client. While not all-inclusive this listing is intended to help the educator and client identify resources uniquely suited to the client’s budget, philosophy, and needs, etc. Since it is impossible to be an expert in all things we are inclined to urge the educator to refer out to experts whenever appropriate.
