Ahara Rasa Ayurvedic Centre
Dear Valued Customers and Clients,
We are excited to announce the new names and locations of our practices to continue serving you with all of your Ayurvedic needs.
Michelle Magid will be opening her practice early February in a beautiful space in the Sellwood neighborhood (details soon to follow). She will continue to carry all the products and herbs you’ve come to know and love and will provide consultations, classes and body therapies. She has renamed Ahara Rasa Ayurveda to Vibrance Ayurveda and for the time being, while the new website is under construction, can still be found at www.AharaRasa.com, info@AharaRasa.com and 503-788-3038.
Melissa Di Rito is retaining her business name Sister Veda, LLC and is finalizing construction on a home studio to continue serving you. A new website is in the works and can be found at www.sisterveda.com. Melissa can also be reached at 503-308-0554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy and honored to continue serving you and look forward to seeing you in our new spaces!

Wishing you a happy & healthy 2016!

Ayurveda means the knowledge or science of life and is the full holistic medical system originating in India more than 5000 years ago. Ahara Rasa is translated as the essence of food. This is the energy we receive from the abundance we take in from the earth when we eat. The amount and quality of the Ahara Rasa is determined by the strength of our digestion and the quality of our food; and the quality of the Ahara Rasa determines how the cells in our bodies form and the strength of our bodily tissues. The Ahara Rasa is the all important essence that determines the quality of our body, mind and spirit. Ayurveda shows a direct relationship between the Ahara Rasa and the formation of the last of the tissues, the reproductive tissue. Therefore, the fertility of men and women is first determined by what they are getting from their food.
