Leah Kaplan’s Ayurvedic journey began five years ago when she started seeing an Ayurvedic practitioner for long-standing digestive and reproductive issues. These issues had been ongoing for years and Leah had sought relief from all kinds of doctors and alternative medicine practitioners, but it wasn’t until she began to see a practitioner and implement Ayurveda into her life that she found relief. Within a month, her symptoms were gone and she has been happier and healthier ever since. She had to know: why did this work when nothing else would? That question led her to over 2,000 hours of study at the prestigious California College of Ayurveda (CCA), where she graduated as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist in 2015, after completing two clinical internships under the supervision of Master Teachers. She is also certified to perform Marma Therapy and Pranic healing through CCA.
Having experienced first-hand the journey from merely surviving to thriving, Leah is thrilled to be able to be a guide for others’ healing processes and understands the need for non-judgmental, creative support on the Ayurvedic path. She is also a 500 hour registered yoga teacher, having completed her training with YogaWorks in Santa Monica, CA and New York City, under the tutelage of Senior Teacher Jenny Aurthur. And she holds a B.S. summa cum laude in Performance Studies from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
Originally from the North Shore of Chicago, and having lived all over the country, Leah currently resides in Tomales, CA with her partner and their dog, Day-Z.
