Warm Words

Happy student of a wellness coaching program

“I feel that Shankari is a great coach because she understands our resistances and challenges and gets us to face them. With her sharp discernment, sense of humour, and no nonsense approach I have no doubt I’ll reach my goals and learn a lot about myself in the process.”

~ Lori Walker, Port Elgin, ON

Yogesh from AT THE CORE providing a wellness coaching session

“What I really like about Yogesh is just how sensitive and compassionate he is, it was really easy for me to tell him what my issues were.  I wanted to say for all those people out there who are black and brown, Yogesh is absolutely wonderful, race never came up as an issue in terms of the pigment of my skin. 

He was very kind and is very understanding.”

~ Charmaine McCauley, UK

“My name is Charmaine McCauley and I wanted to talk a little bit about my experience with Yogesh.

Well, when I went to him what was really amazing was the way that he took his diagnosis, he takes the diagnosis by the pulse.

One of the things that I really liked about him, of course he is white and I’m black and sometimes when I go to Ayurvedic doctors or other medical doctors who are white I often feel uncomfortable, just because they don’t understand my skin tone or they’re very uncomfortable with black and brown people.

His diagnosis was absolutely spot on, so after the diagnosis then he and I talked together about what the right course of action should be and what kind of herbs that I should take. I have to say that the herbs that he chose for me are absolutely wonderful! He also talked very much of how the herbs would work, what were the first steps and the first signs that I would notice.

The other thing that really helped me was that not only did I do the Ayurvedic medicine, I also did the Ayurvedic massages, which I say really complemented what happened with me because not only did he physically see me he also was able to feel my body through his hands. I think from that that gave it another dimension that made it so that when he gave me the medicines they worked really really well!!

I highly recommend him and one of the things I love is when you walk through his doors and you leave the hustle and bustle of outside. When you walk through the doors there is an element of calm, and he always has incense burning. You also hear the lovely Indian chants in the background, I have to say it is like walking into an Oasis.  It is wonderful!!! He has great hands, has a beautiful heart and more than that he made me feel incredibly welcome.

I want to say thank you to him and for anybody else who’d like to go, he’s gonna be the one for you. Thank you!”
