Teacher, Mentor, Contributing Writer
Lauren Gernady is an Āyurvedic Practitioner and a 500-hour Āyurvedic Yoga Teacher. Graduate of the Kripalu School of Āyurveda (KSA), former KSA intern and Academic Coordinator of KSA (2017-2022). With a deep commitment to the study of Vedic traditions, Lauren spreads her love of Āyurveda, Yoga, and Jyotish through writing, teaching, mentoring, and 1:1 consultations. It’s not uncommon to spot Lauren pouring over Āyurvedic cookbooks and ancient texts in the wee hours of the morning. Knowledge is her sadhana.
As the former cook and “kitchari queen” at the Āyurvedic Center of Vermont (ACV), Lauren weaves her passion for cooking into her Āyurvedic practice. Her clinical observations and bodywork at the ACV gave her firsthand experience of the transformational power of Āyurveda through diet, lifestyle interventions, and Pañcakarma (or purification therapy).
This August Lauren is waving goodbye to the bucolic Berkshires and heading back north to the Green Mountain State. There she will be facilitating the launch of the Āyurvedic Center of Vermont’s 650-hour Āyurvedic Health Counselor program while overseeing the academic arm of the school. At the center you may find her cooking simple meals for the pañchakarma clients, teaching restorative yoga, tending the medicinal herb garden, performing a shirodhara, or reviewing student’s clinical case studies.
With an unwavering commitment to the “Science of Life”, Lauren is dedicated to disseminating this system of medicine to make Āyurveda accessible (and palatable) to all.
