Weekdays, we bring you Back2Balance or your ‘true nature’ as Ayurveda subscribes. Ayurveda means the ‘science of life’ and is an alternative medicine system with historical roots in India. Your journey to balance begins with a ZOOM Consultation by an Ayurvedic Doctor practicing in Rishikesh. You will be given a 7-Day Detox Program, along with herbs and recommended dietary requirements.
Claire will be your guide and connection to the Doctor, as well as keep you on track with lifestyle improvements. She also specialises in Cooking Courses, Yin and Restorative Yoga amongst others. March 2022 we are proud to be launching our Ayurvedic treatments at Vision Lane, Green Side Farmacy, Greenside.

About Claire Stephenson
A journey that began over 24 years ago with Iyengar Yoga, Claire continues to discover new paths. She travelled to Bangalore India in 2007, where she discovered Sri Sri Yoga.
Inspired by its focus on Pranayama (the science of breathing) and Yogic lifestyle practices (Ayurveda) – in 2008 she qualified as a Sri Sri Yoga Teacher. She carried on her journey to Germany, where she learned Ayurveda “the science of life” and facilitated both massage and Yoga at the Art of Living Centre in Hamburg.
In the two years of her travels Claire embodied a holistic lifestyle. The Ayurvedic philosophy of a conscious set practice, diet and holistic prevention practices inspired Claire to return to India. She completed an Introductory Course in Ayurveda at the Gujarat Ayurveda University in 2010.
With an eclectic approach to her knowledge in Ayurveda and Yoga, Claire practices in the heart of South Africa today. She is a qualified Hatha, Yin, Pregnancy and Kids Yoga teacher.

To whom it may concern
Claire assisted me with the following:
- Arranged and attended a zoom session with Ayurveda Doctor Pooja in India;
- Summarised issues identified by the Ayurveda doctor;
- Produced a 7-day detox program for me to follow;
- Recommended a list of products for the 7-day detox and after the detox; and
- Recommended a list of Ayurveda friendly foods that would be suitable for my body type being Kapha Pitta.
I found Claire to be very friendly, structured and organised and was a great help in both my 7-day detox and post detox.
