For me, there has been nothing more satisfying than knowing you are in a place in your life where, you just want to give back.”
Colleen spent the 1st year and a half with The California College Of Ayurveda (CCA) in Nevada City, CA, under the teachings of Dr. Marc Halpern. Graduating from their program as an Ayurveda Health Educator in November 2012, she decided to digest all the information for a year to soon find she wanted to dive deeper and learn more about this ancient art of living.
