What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a mind, body and spirit approach to health and wellness. It takes into consideration the wholeness of an individual and uses the education of five sense treatments, including diet, herbs, mantras, meditation, yoga, aromas, massage, colors, music, cleanses, and other therapeutic lifestyle changes to maintain wellness, prevent illness, and restore health.
In an Ayurvedic consultation there is a focus on education so that you may identify the root cause of your health imbalance by understanding your unique constitution. As a practitioner, we look to educate you so that you may make the choices to restore balance and harmony to the mind, body and spirit,
Ayurveda is an accessible practice that is truly for everyone. Ayurveda is a practice that allows you to take responsibility of your health while giving you the tools to make small changes over time. It is a lifestyle practice that meets you where you are.

Aimee Pruitt RN, BSN, A.H.E., RYT-200
Aimee guides her clients through dietary modifications and lifestyle changes including meditation, pranayama, yoga and evaluation of sleep to ease suffering in the body and mind. She is available to see clients in person at 1020 Dennison Ave Columbus, Ohio (located within the YOHI 1020 studio) or via Skype or other video conferencing. To schedule a session, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.aimeepruitt.com to learn more and to begin your journey back to balance and vitality
Aimee has been a Registered Nurse for over 20 years and has always been drawn to the healing arts. She became increasingly frustrated with the ability to help her patients ease their suffering and improve their health and sought to discover other modalities. Stumbling upon Ayurveda at a workshop, she was drawn to it immediately.
Ayurveda honors that we are each unique individuals and how we approach our health and healing should be just as unique. Ayurveda approaches the health journey in a completely holistic way, honoring not just the body, but the mind, emotions, our connection to nature and to the Divine.
Ayurveda has allowed Aimee to not only find peace in her own mind and body but has completely changed the course of her life and career. Bringing her history as a nurse into her Ayurveda practice, she is able to marry the two sciences and meet the client right where they are today on their own health and wellness journey.
