Saadia Shaaza - Ayurveda


Saadia is an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (trained under Dr. Vasant Lad), Birth and Postpartum Doula (DONA) and Ayur-Yoga Instructor, offering private Ayurvedic Health Consultations at Race Brook Lodge.

In 2011, Saadia's private practice, Simply Ayurveda in NYC, opened it's doors. Since then, she has been guiding others into deeper harmony with their own natures by using dietary and herbal support as well as suggesting daily practices designed specifically to enhance health and vitality.

Saadia's natural ability to lead others to participate in cultivating their full potential is supported by her deep connection to the wisdom of the botanical kingdom (plants & herbs) as well as her vast training in Ayurveda, a 5000 year-old system of knowledge that remains powerfully relevant in modern times.

She is an intuitive, a wizard pulse-reader, herbalist, top-notch mendhi doodler, early-childhood educator and she loves to make ghee, broths and taking baths.

In 2016, Simply Ayurveda relocated from NYC to it's new home at the healing center at Race Brook Lodge in the Berkshires, MA.
