Episode 66: Ayurvedic Tips for Navigating the Seasonal Transition Into Autumn

with Colette Kent

Colette Kent is an Ayurvedic Educator and the founder of Elements Natural Healing and Wellbeing who has worked in the health and fitness industry for over 10 years. She is the former owner of a fitness studio in France who, despite her efforts to achieve optimal health, she still felt unhealthy. Following her participation in a 21-day ayurvedic body cleanse program, she began feeling healthier and inspired to become an Ayurvedic educator.

Today, Colette joins me to share her journey toward optimal health and how the ayurvedic methods she practices today can impact your health and wellbeing. She also shares tips on how to navigate the seasonal transition into Autumn and the importance of aligning your eating habits with what nature is currently doing.
