“Ragini came to our group to speak to approximately 30 women and introduce the concept of Ayurveda and its main themes. I have to say she was amazing. Her in-depth knowledge shone through in everything that she presented and she captured the group’s attention and ignited an interest in learning more. 

Many ladies in the group came up to me afterwards and said they wished she had more time to pass on even more facts, hints and tips. I know many of them have decided to have a consultation with her on a one-to-one basis. There is no doubt she knows her subject inside out, but she can perfectly present it in a manner that makes it understandable to all. 

I would highly recommend to anyone who would like to learn more about Ayurveda to visit Ragini at Triveda”.
