Working with Andrea was a dream.

She not only helped us to introduce Ayurvedic recipes and cooking techniques into our diet, but opened the door to our better understanding the Ayurvedic approach to overall body-mind-spirit health. Her initial health analysis was beyond comprehensive and along every step of our work with Andrea she delivered this same above-and-beyond service and attention to detail. We are now more aware of what we're eating and how we're feeling throughout the day. As a result of working with Andrea we've shifted some bad habits, made some easy and welcome substitutions to our diet, and re-committed to our health goals. We feel we're on our way to a longer, more vibrant life!

It has been wonderful to feel like myself almost all the time now.

I think about where I was then, and where I am now. How much you have helped me. This has been so helpful and life-changing to be honest with you. It has given me my life back. You helped me every step along the way. And it has been wonderful to feel like myself almost all the time now.

I especially enjoyed learning about the importance of spices that enhance the food’s flavors and health benefits.

As a health coach, I was so happy to discover Andrea Hayley-Sankaran, and join her course, “Nourishment for Visionaries,” as I have learned so much more about the Ayurvedic approach to cooking food as medicine for our health! It was great to cook with everyone, and to have such beautiful and tasty meals that my family really appreciated as well. I especially enjoyed learning about the importance of spices that enhance the food’s flavors and health benefits thanks to Andrea’s knowledgeable and inspiring approach in the kitchen. ,

You have given me a new life filled with more energy to continue the work that I love. 

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you for your work.  You are an Extraordinarily gifted teacher. I don’t want to be dramatic, but you have given me a new outlook on life, and helped me to save my business. Life was so hard being tired all the time.

I am 76, and I have had problems with Rheumatoid Arthritis for 40 years. I have gone to doctor after doctor asking for help with energy, and they all say they can’t help. You are the first person who gave me hope, and with your fine teaching, I am feeling more energetic. I want more and more energy, and I believe I will get it continuing my studying under you.  

I also love your cooking classes. Although I have been a health nut for decades, I learned I was making a lot of mistakes with my food. The depth of your knowledge is amazing. Also, I love your wonderful, tasty recipes, and am so grateful to have them. I am eating veggies I never thought I liked, and with your seasoning suggestions, I now enjoy them so much.

They flipped over these dishes.

I had my pilates teacher and her husband over for dinner last night. They are superb cooks, so it can be a little intimidating cooking for them. They are both plant-based, and they spend a lot of time in the kitchen, just like you. I made the Thai Carrot Soup and added orange juice, and the Buckwheat Soba Salad, and they flipped over these dishes. He kept sniffing the sauce. He wanted to savor all the senses.

Working with Andrea during the Nutrition for Visionaries Program was eye-opening.

I am a health coach with a background in nutrition so I know a lot about food.  Until taking Andrea’s course though, I didn’t truly appreciate the concept of eating for better digestion. Most people focus on eating better to lose weight, which never actually works. By focusing more on your personal dosha, digestion, and food pairing, you eat the way your body works. Amazingly, weight loss occurred without counting calories or  going on a diet, and my tummy issues, though mild, have been nonexistent.

Andrea is an excellent teacher:  patient, understanding, and calm. Her teaching style is interactive as she asks questions to help her gauge where each of her students is in their journey and whether they are “digesting” the material.  

If you are considering a diet changes or a new diet, talk to Andrea first, and take Nutrition for Visionaries. It will change your life!

You engaged me, and inspired me …

to do the shopping, cooking, and the followup. It was very engaging. During the cooking class I was able to follow. I was so proud. I said to my mom, “I cooked today.”

I think I am down 5 pounds. Yaaaaahoooo!!

A little bit of mindfulness goes a long way! And I’ve noticed I don’t need to buy as much at the grocery store. It feels like I am coming more into balance. I was not expecting THAT!

I highly recommend Andrea as a teacher and Ayurveda health counselor

Her course reminded me of the deep connection that the tastes of food have to the stomach, and how they affect our digestion. I learned how to make a simple condiment that I use daily in my food. It was a game-changer in my digestion, and it's delicious.

Wonderful course that I would highly recommend!

The ideas, the recipes, the teaching style, and the new flavor combinations all resulted in a fantastic experience, a shift in daily eating, and accidental weight loss without even trying.

'I have brought mindfulness to the way I cook.'

Cooking in the way that you taught me is not the same as my typical utilitarian approach to food. I feel calm and peace, because I know I am doing something incredible for my body.
