Amanda Dries, Ayurvedic practitioner & Yoga teacher
Amanda is from Wales in the United Kingdom, she worked for many years as a purser for 2 main Airlines. Travelling all over the world, experiencing different cultures and trying out various treatments. She became interested in learning about holistic ways of improving health.
In this time she met her Dutch husband and moved to Holland, and later had 3 children, it was impossible to carry on flying, so she decided to open up her own Wellbeing business. Over the last 14 years, she has taken on various studies for health. In 2010 she started a study to become an Ayurvedic practitioner at the Academy of Ayurvedic Studies, where they focussed on the classical Vedic text.
After meeting Yoga Master Guru Yogi Shivan owner at www.indimasi.com through a colleague and then years later coming in contact with Practitioner Tory Hyndman, she became inspired to study Ayurveda and is so thankful they helped point her in this direction. Ayurveda was everything she had been looking for. The study consisted of Nutritional Science, herbal Medicine, treatments, yoga and breathing techniques and how to help and advice others to live a more balanced lifestyle. It came into her life like it was ment to be and she is so passionate to pass on her knowledge to others.
The Beginning of 2015 she did her internship in Kerela India, where Doctor Vijith and Dr Vidya have their clinic and hospitol (Sreekrishna Ayurveda Chikitsa Kendram), the students had intense practical and theoretical training with patients, observing the preparations of herbal remedies and decoctions which were grown on their land.
Ayurveda is a study for life, Amanda wishes to continue learning and growing with her own personal development, she hopes to give people awareness and to provide healing treatments that she has learnt through her teachers and Masters.
