About Emma Elizabeth

Emma Elizabeth is an Ayurvedic Practitioner and qualified yoga teacher, who is dedicated to spreading the wisdom of the ancient science of Ayurveda to as many people as possible. She believes the best way to do this is through knowledge of the Doshas, as they so vividly bring the science to life. She hopes passionately that by harnessing the Dosha concept in this way, each individual will be able to learn simply and effectively how to keep themselves well.

She’s fully convinced the Doshas are key in helping us understand our deep connection to nature. For once we realise we too are made up of no more than the five classic elements of Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, we become far more likely to proactively look after the  health of these elements in our day to day lives. And in this era of rapid environmental degradation, this can only be a good thing.

Emma also knows the wider the reach of the Doshas, the swifter Ayurveda can be more fully integrated into the western medicine and science models of today. With growing rates of low immunity in an environment of pandemics, growth in various largely preventable pathologies, and the recent concerning spike in troubling mental health issues, this would be hugely beneficial. For Ayurveda contains valuable wisdom and precious knowledge that can assist in helping to alleviate these outcomes.

Emma began her working life as an investment banker, criss-crossing the globe and spending far too much time on planes and in hotel rooms. When she married, she then swapped city life for a country one, becoming a full-time mum whilst running a vineyard cellar door. After a light bulb moment, when she was awake enough to recognise the rarity of seeing someone in her path absolutely glowing with health, she turned detective, and discovered Ayurveda was the cause. She then immediately enrolled in full-time study to become an Ayurvedic Practitioner, and has worked tirelessly ever since in trying to produce  a similar glow. When COVID struck and she could no longer see clients or run classes, she bunkered down and completed the book she’d already begun, by collating the Dosha lessons she’d been teaching over the years into a format that could be easily understood and embraced by all.

Emma became intimate with the Doshas in the playground of family life. As she watched her three daughters grow, each one so clearly representing one of each of the Doshas of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, she was able to observe as a devoted mum, how each one responded to the many changing details contained within a daily life. This is why she refers to the Doshas as the three sisters. And this knowledge, lived and learned, is what she shares in her forthcoming book.

The blog posts on this site aim to simplify the science of Ayurveda so it becomes easily relatable, and also aim to break down modern problems through the prism of a Doshic lens. The ultimate goal is to help expand the Dosha conversation, so that Ayurveda can be adopted as widely as her sister science of yoga, thus helping us all to lead healthier and happier lives.

Emma’s mission is to spread the wisdom of Ayurveda, using the precious Doshas as a foundation for teaching.
