Additional Information
Alakananda Devi, affectionately known as Ma, grew up in a small town in England. In 1976 she graduated as a physician from a London University medical school. After making her novitiate in an enclosed Cistercian abbey, she traveled to India where she met her Ayurveda guru, Dr. Vasant Lad. For five years, she lived the life of a traditional sadhvi (renunciate) on pilgrimage in India.
One of the first Western physicians to dedicate her life to Ayurveda, Alakananda shares these ancient teachings at Alandi Ashram, founded by herself and her soul mate, Sadananda in Boulder, Colorado. Noted for her pulse reading and diagnostic skills, Ma is an experienced Ayurvedic practitioner and inspiring speaker who travels nationally to teach and lecture. She is the principal teacher at Alandi Ayurveda Gurukula, where she offers a two year Ayurvedic Practitioner course and a four year Ayurvedic Doctor course as well.
