Warm Words

“AT THE CORE has been helpful in understanding the chaos I feel inside and out. Shankari and Yogesh kindly showed me how to get out of my own way through Ayurveda and Meditation by sharing their life experiences and allowing me to have my own. Through their encouragement, support and my own efforts, I continue to discover what I am capable of.”

– Amanda Stypul
