  • Karin (Lakshmi)

    Karin had the opportunity to complete her practicum at Ayurcare, a private practice operated by Dr Gautham, a well-known Ayurvedic physician in Mangalore, Karnataka. An inspiration, a delight and a privilege to work with, Dr Gautham was an incredible source of information and guidance.

    Karin travels to India on a frequent basis for professional development and to speak at Ayurvedic conferences. Karin regularly visits Dr Mahadevan’s Gurukulam in the beautiful area of Tamil Nadu. Dr Mahadevan is an inspiration to Karin and a Guru of Ayurveda. He provides Karin with support, teaching and guidance to this day and is closely associated with Lakshmi Ayurveda Academy.

    Karin also deeply acknowledges her teacher Dr Gayathri Bhat, her Professor of Prasoothi Tantra and Stree Roga, Ayurvedic Gynaecology and women’s health, whose guidance always enlightens and inspires.

    Karin is an infant massage instructor and loves to incorporate this into her Ayurvedic postpartum care. She has undergone intensive Ayurvedic pulse reading, Nadi Vijnanam, with Dr. Vasant Lad in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition, she has completed her 350-hour ISHTA Yoga Teacher Training. Karin has also completed her advanced training in Marma Therapy with Dr. Shishir Prasad, a true master of Marma Chikitsa.

    A life dedicated to healthcare, Karin hopes to bring authentic Ayurvedic treatment to all those seeking health and happiness.

    Karin is a professional member of the Australasian Association of Ayurveda and previously served as the state representative for Western Australia.

    Karin leads the Panchakarma programs at Lakshmi Ayurveda and has completed her Certificate IV in Training and Assessment. She has created student mentoring programs to teach, train and assess students of Ayurveda in both group and private settings.
