Shonna Miller E-RYT, AHCi

Shonna Miller, CASi

Shonna has been studying Ayurveda, “The Science of Life”, since 2018 and is now working her way through the final internship of this schooling. She is a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (holistic specialist) and works to understand each person’s unique balance of the elements to create completely customized programs for her clients. Instead of treating the symptom, Ayurveda believes that the root cause must be addressed and brought back into balance.
To simply be able to help others through these vast ancient sciences has become Shonna’s dream in life. In addition to her own schooling and pathway, she enjoys helping her husband with their restaurant, and raising their two children. She looks forward to offering holistic methods of lifestyle and health to future clients and bringing new options to her local community.

Shahil Patel CASi

Hello, it’s a pleasure to meet you! As a CAS intern, I’m on a mission to become a Medical Ayurvedic Specialist, and I’m thrilled to be able to share this ancient wisdom with you.

I’ve had the privilege of serving the Bay Area as an Emergency Medical Technician and leader. But my experience has also shown me that there’s more we can do to improve our health community. That’s why I’ve turned to Ayurveda, a powerful science that can help you transform your life.

Personally, Ayurveda has changed my life in profound ways. It’s helped me lose over 100 pounds, heal old injuries, and find a sense of joy and purpose that I never thought was possible. And I’m excited to share this transformative power with you.

So if you’re ready to take control of your health and well-being, don’t hesitate to send me an email. Let’s work together to get you back on track and living your best life!

Michelle Mangroo

Michelle Mangroo, CASi

Namaste! My name is Michelle and I’m completing my Clinical Ayurvedic internship with the California College of Ayurveda. With my deep understanding of the elemental energies in Ayurveda, I incorporate Ayurvedic treatments with my certification in Voice Dialogue (Voice Dialogue is based on the Aware Ego and Psychology of Selves. Within us are layers of Selves, each with their own energies which influence our health & can result in illness). Through my own health awakenings, I was called to my dharma as an Ayurvedic Practitioner where I can dip into my authentic heritage of ancient knowledge encompassed in Ayurvedic teachings. With care, compassion and respect, my purpose is to accompany each client on their self-healing journey by sharing my knowledge through consultation, teaching and utilizing powerful Ayurvedic therapies. I am available to work with clients both remotely and in person, as I have opened my practice in Long Island, NY.

Emanda Thomas, CASi

Greetings! I found Ayurveda in my own personal search for a natural health and healing path. The more I learned, the more passionately I felt about sharing this beautiful ancient wisdom with others. I appreciate Ayurveda the most for what it teaches us about the importance of what we digest through all of the senses and the interconnectedness of our mind, heart, and body. This is what I focus on with my clients. I work from the perspective that healing is a journey, so do it with love. I’d love to support you in your wellness journey.
