Certified : Ayurveda Practitioner / Ayurvedic Massage Therapist / Yoga instructor
In 2010 Dominic left the corporate and business world to follow an instinctive yet powerful calling that defines him today. In 2009, while under the rigours and stresses of running his own successful food business, he decided to become a certified yoga instructor. After selling his business, he left everything behind to explore the roots of yoga and Ayurveda in India. He obtained his first certification as an Ayurvedic Massage Therapist from the mentoring hands of two Ayurvedic doctors in northern India. Upon his return to Montreal, he had all things Ayurveda on his mind.
His memorable trip and intense connection to this healing art touched on something that moved and inspired him deeply. He had found his passion. He wanted to learn more.
Luckily, he didn’t have to travel half way around the world again. An Ayurveda spa and wellness center, owned and run by a 4th generation Ayurvedic Vaidya (a senior scholar) was literally around the corner. In December 2013, Dominic graduated as a Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and Lifestyle consultant. He has recently completed advanced studies focusing on disease, pathology, and treatment in Boston, MA.
Other things about Dominic: curious, conscientious, patient, communicative, creative, sensitive, professional, dedicated, service-oriented, driven by heart and caring.
