About the Author: Ariela
Arielas' initiation into the healing arts occurred in India, during a journey undertaken in 1991. Having come in order to deepen her knowledge of the Yogic arts, Ariela sought out and found both Yogic and Ayurvedic masters to study with. Her journeys throughout the south of India studying, practicing and eventually teaching under the guidance of her teachers, became a catalyst for a change in her life's direction.
After returning to the U.S, Ariela sold her business (a retail store by the name of Sweet Charity) to her parents and began pursuing a career in the healing arts. After studying Herbal Medicine at Seven Song's school in Ithaca, Ariela went on to study bodywork at the Florida School of Massage. Becoming an LMT led to the establishment of her private practice in Gainesville (Florida) in 2002, and continues to flourish today.
