"The Ayurveda Life Mastery program at the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda has been an incredible experience and has changed my outlook on life forever. It has helped me to understand myself, my relationships, and the world in a whole new way. I have gained a wealth of knowledge and feel prepared to meet the mental, spiritual, and emotional challenges of life with love, compassion, and understanding. Thank you NIA for this invaluable experience."

"What I love the most about Ayurveda is not only the tools and knowledge I now possess, but the fact that by doing all these things for myself, I have really let my body know that I honor it and love it."

"The Ayurveda Life Mastery program has been such an wonderful point of focus to orient my life around. It has been an anchor in staying connected to myself and my dreams. It has offered some great tools that have inspired action to my goals and has aided in bringing greater clarity to my vision and my vision of the world. I am grateful for the community it has offered, and feel blessed to be able to connect with like minded individuals. I do love the ability to approach the material on our own schedules via the online course. I LOVE the program and what we are doing in it. Thank you Traci for the experience."

"This course was much better than all the expectations I had because it goes much more deep in a lot of aspects of life that I was not realizing before. All the powerful information changed my life in a wonderful way. I can now recognize every sign that my body gives me so I can take care of myself and the people around me in a very deep way. So powerful and amazing. I have amazing skills to face my life. I feel really motivated and empowered."

"This class helped me to understand myself, others and life in general much more deeply. Traci is a great teacher, wonderful mentor and a supportive friend."

Jackson Scott

"Being Part of the Ayurveda Life Mastery program has been a joy and a wonderful personal growth opportunity. Ayurveda touches so many aspects of life; health, happiness, spirituality, nutrition, lifestyle, connection with nature and community, the list goes on and on. Learning with this group has been a beautiful experience and I look forward to sharing the knowledge with others into the future."

~ Valerie Allen

"I feel better now because of initiating new habits and routines, paying more attention to my body and mind and having a new way to understand and treat them."

"I recommend this program to anyone who is interested in Ayurveda and wants to learn more about nurturing and empowering oneself. The combination of in-class and online makes the program easily accessible. I learned a deep knowledge of Ayurveda and myself and made great friends along the way."

"To say that the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda has transformed my life would be an understatement. I came to Ayurveda broken, fragile and scared. I emerged happy, healthy and confident. From the bottom of my heart, I highly recommend all of the NIA programs."

~ Anne Allen
Ayurveda Life MasteryTM (formerly Ayurvedic Living Program) & Ayurveda Herbalist Program Graduate

"I could write a novel about everything I learned. The love, support and intimate experience that I had in all of the NIA programs would be impossible to get in larger schools. There were lifelong bonds formed among the teachers and students. On a regular basis we laughed, cried, sang, cooked, chanted, dreamed and held space for each other."

~ Anne Allen

"I have learned and applied so many life tools and knowledge, during the Ayurveda Life Mastery course, into my life. It has strengthened my personal and work relationship, as well as, my relationship with myself. I have brought spiritual practices into my life and sustained them through the support and guidance of this course. I am so happy that Ayurveda is in my life and always will be!"

~ Jennifer Wiest
Madre Illumination Healing

"I am so very grateful to have found Ayurveda. I love everything about it. Nothing has ever felt so right to me. This is exactly where I am supposed to be and what I am supposed to be doing...having this background and tools to use allows me to truly take care of my patients and I am so grateful to be able to use this to help people."

"Before I signed up for this program, I was feeling quite scattered. I had an idea of the direction I wanted to go in, but felt like I was getting information from any and every place I could and it was all so contradictory. My habits weren’t sticking and I felt lost when it came to my purpose. I knew I wanted to start a business, but didn't feel confident in any of my ideas. I was finally getting serious about taking control of my health and was again, getting contradictory information from the sources considered scientifically legitimate. I was frustrated & felt stagnant in my life and health journey. Now having completed this training and received my certificate, not only do I have a clear direction to go in, but a plan to take me there and the fire inside to continue to take the action needed. I have launched my own coaching business, with expansion projected for years to come. I have created healing routines with habits in place to serve me on my path. My healing journey has taken a slightly new direction, with a greater focus on my Self as a whole and with the wisdom of the ancients to guide me. Between life coaching skills and a much deeper knowledge of Ayurveda, I feel secure in my path with the tools to get me where I am headed. I still have a ways to go to reach all my goals, but I will forever be a grateful student to Traci and the Northwest Institute of Ayurveda."

Mia Hamilton
Ayurveda Life Mastery Trainings Graduate

"I had been considering the Northwest Institute for 2 years before life let me know it was time. In just a few months I began to see life in a different light, those around me were noticing and telling me I was different and glowing, I met people who are surely going to become part of my life tribe and I have gained some valuable tools that have allowed me to see myself in a light of compassion and fierceness all at once. When I started the program I had an idea of where I was going in life as an herbalist, but now I have the courage and light to follow that path in front of me. Although I was aware of the life coaching aspect I didn't know how important that part of the course would be and how much it would help me catapult my calling."

Xiommy Rohena
Ayurveda Life Mastery Trainings Graduate

"I've had the pleasure of knowing Traci for the past 20 some years and she has been very accessible in helping me with my various health issues. In particular with my stomach after having been diagnosed and hospitalized with diverticulitis. With her guidance in diet change and herbal and probiotic suggestions, I have to say that I am 100% better. She has also helped me with teaching me to have a different mindset on how to approach life in a more positive manner (which is a challenge for me) and specially how to apply Ayurveda to every day of my life. She is an amazing teacher, and one of the most compassionate human beings I know. One of her strengths as an instructor is making something that is so complex as Ayurveda easy for all of us to understand. I believe that anyone would benefit tremendously from taking the Ayurveda Life Mastery classes and any of her other classes. Thank you Traci for your wisdom and caring."
