Before Aligned & Balanced I was waking in the middle of the night with severe insomnia and eating out of habit.
After joining Aligned and Balanced I started to integrate more plant-based meals and ayurvedic rituals to my day such as yoga and nasal rinse.
Being aware of my dosha means that I understand how the pandemic is impacting my particular tendency to get angry and impatient as a stress response.
Just knowing this helps give me the space to reflect before I react.
Before joining the course I paid less attention to a specific morning and evening routine and I didn’t eat according to my dosha. I felt that I had no time to accomplish things, I sometimes overreacted in difficult situations and I had bad eating habits.
After joining the course I started to build a morning routine, daily meditation and outside walk, daily reading and/or me-time.
I’ve been trying to get to bed earlier (still in progress!), I’ve also adjusted my eating habits to my dosha which means having a warm breakfast, making lunch a main meal and eating a light dinner. I also avoid snacking though this is still in progress! And I introduced many more vegetables into my dishes.
I have also been incorporating more spices and herbs such as cardamom and curcuma and I reduce sugar in my recipes or replace it with maple syrup.
Overall, I have been experiencing more overall energy and better digestion!
Before I joined Aligned & Balanced, I went to bed late and ate a cold breakfast in the morning. I was cold and tired. I also had a shift job and never felt that I was getting enough rest.
After joining Aligned & Balanced, I changed the job with regular times and no work in the evenings so that I can go to bed earlier. I also wake up the same time every morning during week days. I have started to eat more warm food and warm spices.
I am feeling less cold and I have more energy. I have also started to listen more to myself and my needs.
Risa’s Aligned & Balanced online course was really informative and easy to absorb. The lessons were just the right length and you can fit them in with a busy life.
I identified what Dosha I was and learnt what eating patterns and types of exercise suits me. The yoga videos included are specific to your Dosha and were straightforward and easy to follow.
I would definitely recommend the course!

Yes of course! The first 2 modules will enable you to gain a basic understanding of Ayurveda and the 3 Doshas. You can also ask any questions to myself inside the course!
Yes you can! But I would advise you to take an in-person Yoga class at least once a week if you have never practiced Yoga before, as I won’t be able to give you hands-on adjustments online and it’s useful to have an experienced teacher to guide you when you are a complete newbie to Yoga!
Forever! You will only need to enroll once and you will have lifetime access to the course materials which I will be updating with new Yoga videos and course materials regularly. However, I would recommend trying to work through the course in 6 weeks (1 module per week) so you don’t lose momentum.
The course materials are delivered in video content, downloadable audio, written transcription in PDF, printable slides and worksheets. So, whether you prefer to watch, listen or read the content, you’ll be covered! All this is accessible via my interactive online platform.
