Meet Chantel Alcaraz
Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach
Chantel Alcaraz is a Certified Yoga Health Coach, Yoga Teacher of 13 years, and is deeply passionate about the rhythms and lifestyle habits of Ayurveda. Being sparked at a young age to discover what true health entails, she journeyed to Mother India to study, practice and explore the ancient teachings of these two sister sciences, Yoga and Ayurveda. The merging of these two philosophies, personal experience, and her self-healing gives her the potential to hold a safe space for people ready to shift, grow and step into their healing potential. Now a coach and mentor through her own business, Abhasa Wellness, she offers a year-long course for her members to slowly begin to embody these teachings. She guides the wisdom away from the intellectual mind, and back into the cells. Her intention is for her students to become the living teachings by their choices, habits, lifestyle, and character. Only then do we experience true health, and ease!

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda ("the knowledge of life") is an ancient medical science derived from India that continues to be one of the world's most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems. Ayurveda is based on the notion that one's health depends on the balance between mind, body, and spirit. This health system views each person as a unique individual made up of five primary elements: ether (space), air, water, fire, and earth. These elements combine in each body to form three primary energies, called doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Ayurveda believes that our unique combination of these energies can help us better understand ourselves, promote positive health, and prevent disease and illness.
