In 2006 a friend introduced Jodey to Ayurveda.
A few years later, she visited Kerala, India, it was the start of a soul-searching journey towards Ayurveda and alternative medicine.
The experience led her on a 10-month part-time certification, in 2011, as an Ayurvedic Health Counsellor at Mount Madonna Institute of Ayurveda in California where she was first introduced to her teacher Dr Vasant Lad, a renowned Ayurvedic physician and author.
Christmas of 2012, she returned to India for a personal retreat at Poonthottam Ayurveda Ashram and hospital in Kerala. The effects were palpable. Hungry for knowledge, Jodey left her 20-year career in fashion to study full time with Dr Vasant Lad at The Ayurvedic Institute, New Mexico, where she completed her Ayurvedic practitioner certification and 500 hr Yoga teacher training in 2015.
During her time there, she was introduced to Jyotish astrology, a sister science to Ayurveda and Vastu, the yoga of space.
In 2019 she continued her studies in Ayurvedic obstetrics with Dr Amruta Athale, founder of the Arya Ayurveda Institute in Pune, India.
In 2021 Jodey completed a continuing yoga teacher training in Yoga For Menopause with Niamh Daly.
The culmination of Jodey's studies in Ayurveda and its sister sciences, her previous career in fashion design and personal experience have created Inner Farmacy and her blog The Daily Dose, offering Ayurvedic insights for women , giving you the tools to live a modern life using ancient wisdom.
It is a Vedic perspective on style, health food and practice so that you too can cultivate your own, Inner Farmacy.
