Meredith Russell is a registered Ayurvedic Practitioner, graduating from Equals International with a Cert. IV in Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultation and Advanced Diploma of Ayurveda. She is also a registered Yoga Teacher with a Diploma of Yoga Teaching Y.T.I.S.A. and Yoga Teaching certification from Adelaide Ashtanga Yoga Shala, with over 30 years of experience as a yoga practitioner incorporating healthy lifestyle advice to restore health and wellbeing. Meredith’s academic background is in Creative Arts and Community Education, and she passionately combines the richness of these experiences in her consultations.
Meredith believes in a holistic, nurturing approach to healing by nourishing every aspect of the whole self, including diet, lifestyle, nutrition, yoga, meditation, visualisation and creativity to suit individual needs. Ayurveda allows people to be personally responsible for their health and wellbeing, opening the door to wellness, creativity and balanced lifestyle by using a full range of healing modalities in one complete, integrated system. This involves an individual health assessment and advice, education and guidance on nutrition and lifestyle. In this way Ayurveda can be life changing and transformative and has a lasting effect on body, mind and spirit, allowing each individual to live to their full potential.
She developed her signature fusion modality style with the philosophy of going back to nature, nurturing and beautifying the heart, soul, body and being while using the modern scientific advances we are privy to find harmony between the 2 worlds. Her techniques have been inspired by and taken from various ancient healing arts. She has extensive experience coming from a background in health and wellness since 2007.

Alana has spent up to 5 months a year in India for the past 7 years, studying the traditional Indian artform – Kalarippayat (Kalari). Her training as a Kalari therapist differs from other specialists due to the intensive psychophysiological training as a martial artist. Gurukkal’s (teachers) train Kalari students to achieve extraordinary control over their mind and body, and thus control of the vital energy or wind (prana vayu). The efficacy of Kalari treatments is based on this ability to control and channel prana (energy) while giving physiotherapy (Kalari Uzichil) and energy treatments (Prana Chikitsa).
On her return from India in 2013, Alana completed a Level 1 Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction training with the Mindfulness Training Institute of Australasia. She is an advocate for a holistic approach to life and health, running the community wellbeing initiative Soul Strong Society and coordinating events such as the Movement Is My Medicine Festival.
Travelling between India and Australia regularly, Alana is dedicated to continuing studies and professional development.
“The practical skills I have learnt through my studies have changed my life, for the much-better. I have seen the lives of others transformed through Kalari, Ayurveda and mindfulness, and it is my belief that the knowledge of one’s own mind, body, and place in nature is the foundation of wellbeing.”
Alana has utmost respect for each person she meets with; believing each session is a shared experience of learning and healing.
