Saadia Shaza

Saadia is an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner (trained under Dr. Vasant Lad), Birth and Postpartum Doula (DONA) and Ayur-Yoga Instructor. In 2011, Saadia's private practice, Simply Ayurveda in NYC, opened it's doors. Since then, she has been guiding others into deeper harmony with their own natures by using dietary and herbal support as well as suggesting daily practices designed specifically to enhance health and vitality. Saadia's natural ability to lead others to participate in cultivating their full potential is supported by her deep connection to the wisdom of the botanical kingdom (plants & herbs) as well as her vast training in Ayurveda, a 5000 year-old system of knowledge that remains powerfully relevant in modern times.  She is an intuitive, a wizard pulse-reader, herbalist, top-notch mendhi doodler, early-childhood educator and she loves to make ghee and broths. In 2016, Simply Ayurveda relocated from NYC to it's new home at Race Brook Lodge in the Berkshires, MA.


During an Ayurvedic consultation, Saadia will address a person’s health concerns from a physical, emotional and spiritual perspective. She will look into specific ways of treating a person based upon their unique body type or dosha and determine the root of the problem. In a typical evaluation, a complete medical and lifestyle history will be taken. Diagnosis of a person’s imbalance is based upon this as well as pulse analysis, examination of the tongue, eyes, nails, and facial lines. Through this assessment, a personalized health plan is formulated, including recommendations on diet, optimum daily routines, nutritional and herbal supplements, stress management through breathing practices, meditation, and yoga.
