Ayurveda is a healing art and science of life. Ayurveda’s concern is alleviating
both bodily and mental diseases and promoting physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. It
includes eating, living, and moving with the seasons and the 5 elements, balanced self-care, healthy
relationships, and balanced living. It includes learning how to be proactive in one's own health and
life. In its fullest form, Ayurveda is also a path of awakening to Wholeness and integration with all of life.
Cary's Ayurvedic Training
Cary Twomey is a Certified Ayurvedic Counselor/Practitioner who has been sharing and teaching Ayurveda in NYC and internationally since the 90s and in Lincoln, Nebraska since 2002. She spent over a decade apprenticing with and assisting Maya Tiwari at the Wise Earth School of Ayurveda, where she has served as a Master Teacher and Wise Earth health consultant. She studied with Dr. Vasant Lad of The Ayurvedic Institute and Vamadeva David Frawley over many years, with whom she learned Ayurveda as well as the practices of deeper spiritual healing. She served five years of clinical apprenticeship and hands-on treatment under the guidance of Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, founder of Chakrapani Ayurveda, in Jaipur, India. She went on to engage in twelve ongoing years of study with Vaidya Rama Kant Mishra, of the Shakya Vansiya Ayurveda Lineage, before his passing. She learned the sacred art of pulse reading directly from Vaidya Mishra. In 2016, Cary was granted the title of Prana-Aushadhi, Ayurvedic Healer~one who can restore the life-force, by Vaidya Mishra before his passing in 2017 and granted the title of Master Teacher, Sadhaka Adept, by Maya Tiwari of Wise Earth Ayurveda in 2019.

She teaches people how to be responsible for their own health and well-being, and how to eat and live with awareness and balance. Consultations include tailored dietary recommendations and suggestions for lifestyle changes.
In addition, the Yoga Classes & Private Sessions taught at Midwest Dharma Wheel by Cary and her husband Lee, are rooted in many years of practice & study of Ayurveda and Classical Yoga. They were both personally trained by Dr. Vasant Lad many years ago on how to integrate Ayurveda and Yoga.

They learn how to respect and connect to the natural world, from which many of us have become disconnected, and begin to understand how good health depends on this relationship being nurtured.
On these adventures, they learn how to draw on the healing power of the 5 elements and to restore health to their body, minds, and inner life.
Cary teaches the power of meditation, contemplation, and connection to the Inner Sacred Source.
In classes and retreats, we learn to become aware of how we use our senses. We are educated on how the cause of many health problems arises from the misuse of our senses.
Ayurveda teaches that when we abuse the senses we lose connection to the source of health. We learn how to use them consciously, restoring our senses to a state of healthful relationship with the world we live in.
On a residential retreat at early morning practice, we are learning how to start our day caring for the sense organs.
Through this they are learning how to draw on the healing power of awareness.
