We specialize in cleanse programs & ayurvedic lifestyle for mind/body balance, and to remediate the inability to lose weight, digestive issues, depletion from chronic stress, and the need for detoxification.
On this page you can learn a little about us and our team, as well as explore our policies and location.
My name is Monica Yearwood, and I am an ayurvedic practitioner and founder of <a href=”http://www.hamsacenter.com” target=”_blank”>Hamsa Ayurveda Lifestyle Center</a> in Chicago. I am an herbalist and a cleanse expert who, like many health practitioners before me, stepped into the world of healing through the path of my personal process.
My studies at the Maharishi University of Management, starting in 2002, provided me with the foundation of daily practices that reconnect us to what we have lost, our intimate relationship with the earth’s cycles and cues. I’ve completed programs in Ayurvedic theory, detoxification strategies, diet, and herbal applications and was individually selected by Dr. Light Miller, one of our greatest advocates and teachers of Ayurveda, as a Panchakarma apprentice at her clinic in Sarasota, Fl.
Other studies have included:
<li>California College of Ayurveda with Dr. Mark Helpurn</li>
<li>Maharishi University with Dr. John Hagelin</li>
<li>Prana Ayurveda with Vaidya Mishra</li>
<li>Nosara Yoga Institute with Dr. Don and Amba Stapleton</li>
<li>And one of the foremost Western Scholars of Buddhism, Lama Surya Das.</li>
I am a graduate of Dhanvantari Ayurveda from the Florida Vedic College, and am a licensed massage therapist, certified yoga instructor, and Panchakarma technician. I recently became a Sadhaka in training in the Wise Earth Ayurveda lineage led by Sri Swamini Mayatitananda.
I opened <a href=”http://www.hamsacenter.com” target=”_blank”>Hamsa Ayurveda Lifestyle Center</a><a href=”http://www.hamsacenter.com” target=”_blank”>,</a> the only full service ayurvedic center in the city of Chicago in 2013, and started <a href=”http://hamsaapothecary.com” target=”_blank”>Hamsa Apothecary</a>, an organic skincare and herbal supplement line, later that same year.
