Rita is an advocate of traditional medicine and earth wisdom of all cultures. Born in Kuwait of East-Indian parents, she lived in many countries and experienced many cultures. She studied Ayurveda, Yoga and related therapies since her early 20's.  Rita is committed to honoring the power of Consciousness and the inherent Intelligence that directs the body-mind-spirit complex. Rita came to BodyTalk through her own healing journey and experienced profound shifts in awareness after a few sessions of BodyTalk. This experience prompted her to keep asking "What si the root cause of illness, and what does our body try to tell us through illness and dis-ease ? " Having found BodyTalk as a way to communicate with the body-mind complex, she was inspired to train in this system and complete her certification as a BodyTalk practitioner (CBP). 

While her formal education was in the field of Technology, eCommerce, and Information Systems, she is inspired daily and continues to be passionate about BodyTalk and its underlying principles of Advaita Vedanta, Quantum Physics, Body-Psychology and Consciousness. Having worked over 30 years in various highly demanding technical and management roles in fast-paced corporate environments, she understands the challenges and experiences of managing stress and overwhelm while balancing work and life and feeling uninspired or in a fear-driven way.  She brings a level of acute attention to detail to her clients while following her intuition in her service to her clients.

It is Rita’s passion to help facilitate awareness in her clients, to inspire them by offering them information that she has, and sharing the wisdom of her experiences in her BodyTalk sessions so that they too can feel empowered to live in a more connected and inspired way and offset dis-ease. She inspires her clients to develop a new-found respect for their Body-Mind-Spirit Complex and the Innate wisdom that governs and directs all of its functions.

She has trained in various lineages of Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda and Jyotish (Vedic astrology). Her training and studies also extend into Incan, Mayan, Tibetan, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Reiki, Native American practices, plant, and mineral sciences.

She is currently enrolled in an Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner program at the San Diego College of Ayurveda. She is also a member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.

She also teaches yoga techniques and heart-based meditation techniques to help manage stress and overwhelm. She is also currently working on completing her Advanced CBP certification process and PaRama.

She continues to take advanced training in BodyTalk, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda.  Please see a list of her coursework completed below.
