Learn Ayurveda

Tools for creating your best life...

Life can get busy, but that doesn't mean we should stop learning (in fact that's often when we need it most).  Becoming our best selves is a process that includes education and action.  I've created offerings that can support you in both, at a pace that fits your life and your schedule, each made with love, and delivered LIVE with gratitude and joy!

Connection is why we're here....The world can feel like a pretty isolating place. Especially when we receive most of our information and inspiration while sitting in front of screens. Stepping outside the box (and the house), is how we begin to experience the love, belonging and connection that are the universal sources of true wellbeing.


Ritusandhi satsang

Community support for powerfully shifting seasons

“The moment in between what you once were, and who you are now becoming, is where the dance of life really takes place.”Barbara De Angelis

Ritusandhi is the Sanskrit word for seasonal transition.  It’s a powerful time of year to...

  • Take stock of the lessons of the current season of the year and your life and who you are as a result of them
  • Consider who you can be, what you can do  and what support  you’ll need in the season ahead
  • Let go of what’s behind you to allow energy to create what’s ahead

It’s an opportunity to...

  • Move consciously and intentionally through the year(and your life),
  • To align your energies with the energies of the natural world; and
  • To create an environment and mindset for more good days in every season. 

Who could you be if you could let go of what's behind you and embrace what's ahead....powerfully?

Join me for a five-week satsang of yoga teachers spanning the seasonal transition.  We’ll acknowledge and explore the transformational powers and energetic effects of the prana vayus (all subdoshas of vata which can become aggravated during times of transition) on mind, body, breath and life.  

Our sacred gathering will take the form of an online weekly circle to embody and connect to the “five winds” within and without.

In each 90min weekly session you’ll:

  • Have a chance to connect with kindred spirits… and yourself
  • Explore breathwork & gentle movement for perceiving and directing the vayus
  • Discover each of the five vayus, including their qualities, themes and expressions. And explore their role in seasonal wellbeing

In each session you’ll get:

  • Journal Prompts for self awareness and intention setting
  • Seasonal shifting practices to add to your lifestyle and diet routine
  • Suggestions for practice themes for yourself or to share with your students

  • Eastern Time (NYC) - Sept 7th - Oct5th [Tuesdays  @ 7 - 8:30pm ET]

The most powerful way to experience the benefits of ayurveda is to create your own relationship with it. Living ayurveda while learning it is the empowering principle at the heart of my intensive online learning experiences.

Thank you for bringing this opportunity into my life so that I could choose myself. I am forever grateful for your energy and love!


I'll be forever grateful to Chara for her role introducing Ayurveda into my life and my Yoga practice. The clouds of fatigue and indecisiveness lifted and I felt renewed clarity and energy immediately - and I've used this wisdom daily ever since to guide my awareness and my choices.


Cleansing will educate and empower you. Chara's cleanse is the perfect first step.


I truly believe the cleanse has helped to wash away some of the things that keep me from seeing the true me. I have been making choices that I probably wouldn't have made before doing the cleanse. This feels great. It's time for me to live my life, no regrets.


Thank you Chara! You've helped me find some balance in my life and helped me see that healthy changes are possible.
