It's time to truly thrive.

  • Connect

    Learn to listen to the wisdom of your own body. Deepen appreciation for your individual constitution and find out how to honor your unique path to balance through simple diet and lifestyle shifts.

  • Nourish

    Understand how, what and when to eat for your mind body type. Optimize the way you nourish your body to enhance nutrient absorption, sustain energy, and provide greater clarity of mind.

  • Heal

    Experience greater inspiration, less stress, better sleep, improved mood, and glowing skin by activating full body awareness. Integrate routines, remedies and rituals to that work for your lifestyle.

Self care is the first step.

Collective wellness is the solution.

The purpose of self care is ultimately to enable us to take care of others. Not only is self care a form of rebellion, it also invites us to find greater clarity of mind, more time to organize, and energy to activate change. When you cultivate balance within your own body and mind, you are able to bring more harmony to your family, community and the planet.

Here's what people are saying about our programs

An incredible resource

by Haley Myers

As a freelancer, I have often struggled with how best to organize my various work tasks during the course of a day, from paperwork to creative efforts. This course was exactly what I needed to learn how to understand myself--my work style and energy--in a way that allows me to confidently manage my time and tasks while staying healthy and avoiding burning out. Learning how to balance my schedule from an Ayurvedic perspective has helped me optimize and enjoy my work day and time off more than any other approach I have yet tried, and this course is chalk-full of valuable information and resources about how to do so. I will definitely be continuing on to parts 2 and 3.

Small Acts of Routine Care

Alexis Hermis

Wow, I feel so supported by this course. Molly is a great guide through these difficult times of trying to keep my balance while working from home. This course inspired me to draw lines between the work I do for pay and the work I do to keep myself well, as they are related! I don't know much about Ayurveda, but I never felt lost in the information. I think as an Ayurveda beginner or expert, this course has content that is understandable and potent. I loved the reflection questions and having the guidance to keep myself accountable to daily acts of routine care to maximize my productivity, health, and mental wellbeing. Thank you so much!

Certified Ayurvedic Practitioners, Wellness Educators

Molly & Sierra of Cultivate Balance

Sierra Brashear, MA, and Molly McConnell, RYT 500, are both NAMA Certified Ayurvedic Practitioners and graduates of Alandi Ashram’s 2,000+ hour, National Ayurvedic Medical Association certified program. In addition to our formal training, we have both experienced firsthand the amazing wellness transformations catalyzed by Ayurveda, and are advocates for preventative wellness, body-positivity and self love in our daily lives. We believe that self care is a radical act — when you are vibrant and awake, you have the clarity and energy to show up for what you believe in — and we understand that balancing ourselves is the foundation for balancing our families, communities and the planet. With this in mind, we are committed to shifting humanity’s lived experience through respect for and realignment with nature. We source inspiration from the rhythms and elements of the Earth, knowing that this is the wild reclamation of our ability to heal ourselves and transform the world around us.

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.
