Ivy Ingram, MA, AHP, RYT-500, is an Ayurvedic health practitioner and yoga therapist. She helps clients resolve digestive concerns, menstrual difficulties, weight management, and stress-related issues like anxiety, insomnia and depression. A certified yoga teacher since 2002, she is a former faculty member of the Ayurvedic Institute under the direction of the world-renowned Dr. Vasant Lad in New Mexico. Currently she conducts online programs, educational courses, seasonal cleanses, and consultations to help clients find comfort in their bodies and ease in their life.
Ivy received her Ayurvedic Health Practitioner certification from Dr. Vasant Lad after an intensive 2-year clinical training program. She also studied Ayurveda in southern India for 5 months with her primary teacher there, Dr. A.R. Ramadas, and has returned each year for further training or treatment. She has completed a 300-hour teacher training in Ayuryoga, integrating the principles of Ayurveda and Yoga, as well as two 200-hour yoga teacher trainings with Integrative Yoga Therapy and Kripalu Yoga Center.
Making the seismic shift from the theoretical to the well-lived, Ivy has drawn deeply on the wisdom of Ayurveda and Yoga in her ongoing healing from an autoimmune hyperthyroid condition. This exploration, including 3 months of treatment in India in 2016, continues to give her a deeper understanding of what healing actually means and how to support the inherent intelligence and ability of the body-mind to restore balance.
Ivy has taught yoga to staff at a Harvard teaching hospital, patients in a cancer treatment center, and inmates in the Oregon and Texas prison systems. A dedicated student of Vedic chant and Sanskrit, she is fascinated by the power of sound, poetry and the spoken word in healing.
A professional level member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association and the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Ivy has a master’s degree in counseling psychology from Boston College, and a bachelor’s degree in literature from Brown University. She holds a life-long commitment to helping people find their own path to health and joy.
