Felice is a lover of many things and has been hard-pressed to choose just one. She has a BA in English and Writing, is a licensed esthetician, a certified nursing assistant, and a mother to two beautiful kiddos. She taught lower-elementary for many years, and is still deciding what she wants to be when she grows up.

How has Ayurveda changed your life?

Ayurveda is a like a big affirmative hug. It confirms the deepest parts of my Nature, and gives me the guidance to bring balance into my life.

Which Banyan products are you currently using and why?

Healthy Vata, Healthy Bones, Shatavari, and Everyday Greens to offer nourishment and support to a busy life and a sensitive nervous system. .

When are you most likely to go out of balance and how do you bring yourself back in balance using Ayurveda?

I think I am only just learning what it feels like to be IN balance. Interestingly, I think I am most likely to go out of balance when I am being led by the Pitta part of me—the need to do, to achieve, to prove—at the expense of my body and my spirit. Time in nature, dance, yoga, rest, massage, warmth, walking with my “granddogger” all bring me back to a semblance of balance.

Favorite place in the world?

My bed! Also, Hawaii, Crete, and Mexico.

Favorite quote?

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” — Mary Oliver

Who inspires you?

The artists, the poets, the peacemakers. The children, and all who work on behalf of them.

Favorite sattvic meal / recipe?

Anything warm and creamy with cinnamon and, these days, cardamom.
