Carla is deeply grateful to her teachers:
This was my first experience having Panchakarma and it was heavenly. Carla takes the utmost care to give personalized attention. I loved the special herbal oils that she used and Carla’s home cooked diet. The massage itself is deeply restful. I am going through a divorce and it was very helpful for me to process the feelings and to feel nurtured and centered as I went through the treatments. Shirodhara, having warm oil poured onto your forehead, is divine.

I had met Carla at Rancho La Puerta, and had an ayurvedic consultation with her, which I found very interesting and helpful. I had been feeling low energy, both emotionally and physically. Carla discussed the benefits of doing an Ayurvedic cleanse called Panchakarma. It sounded fantastic and just what I needed to kick start my body, mind and spirit.
I came to California and we were welcomed daily into her home, where she cooked and fed us, massaged us and treated us to a beautifully crafted yoga practice that was intimate yet challenging and calming. I felt my body and energy transform throughout the week. Panchakarma is a practice that I look forward to repeating again and again.
Carla is a consummate professional, who is very knowledgeable. She is a wonderful yoga teacher, whom I wish I could practice with on a daily basis at home. I highly recommend this cleanse for everyone.
