What is Holistic Health?

Spelling it Wholistic (with a W) would take a lot of the confusion away.  Holistic makes one immediately think of Holy - picture of Dalai Lama comes to my mind and questions like, is this Spiritual or is this a religion?

So, my preferrred choice of words is Whole Health and that's how I am going to use it here. ( on social media, there is no category of this, so you will see me listed under holistic health)

Whole Health refers to the health of the Whole person: body, mind and spirit. Ayurvedic Medicine is the big umbrella of all Natural medicine and is considered the mother of Holistic Medicine, integrating body, mind and soul.  Ayurvedic Medicine sees the individual to be more than just the body, therefore it treats each illness at every level of the person as our body, mind and spirit are connected.  You can read more on Ayurvedic Medicine on my Home Page

I use multi-tiered approach in my work with you as we are multi-dimensional beings.  You may desire to focus on just nutrition, or yoga or healing past trauma or creating mental/emotional healing.

Here is an example of what Whole Health Care looks like.

If I am addicted to say, sweet taste, then the fragmented approach would be to not buy sweet treats, force yourself not to eat it, eat healthy so you don't have sugar cravings etc. These measures can work but temporarily until we find ourselves eating the whole carton of ice-cream.  Sweet taste is filling a gap somewhere and creating guilt and shame at the same time, reinforcing the belief that I am bad so now I need more sweet to feel better.  This perpetual cycle can go on and on until we decide to get help.

Where is the gap?  The belief that I am bad.  Where did this belief come from?  Perhaps, from our caretakers or other authority figures in our life, from culture, societial norms.  Why is it that my soul decided to be born into the family, the times and the communities? Because I brought with me energies of worthlessness and my environment and the people in it helped play out these energies so I could experience feeling worthless again in order to heal it.  But, we seldom know to heal it, instead we get deeply wounded and we live our lives from this place of woundedness.

So the work is to heal the past energies and past trauma, healing the inner child, connect with our deeper Self, change the belief and that will naturally help me make better choices.  Do you see how the physical craving of sweet taste is linked to the past energies, beliefs and traumas?

Why work with me?

It's my greatest joy to work with clients individually as that's when they experience the most transformation and I get to witness the positive changes in their health and well-being.

You have the most access to me by working with me individually.  For that reason, I limit the number of indvidual clients I take per month so I can serve them well and also meet the needs of my group programs.

I walk the talk. Like you, I have had many challenges in my life that I have overcome and come on the other side expanded and evolved. I often say, "I am the lab for all the teachings"  and it has been true so far.  More than the trainings, this work is very personal for me as I have experienced it first hand. There is nothing that I will teach you that I haven't experienced myself. You can  Read more about me here

Individual Yoga Therapy is the best way for you to get the most out of any Yoga class, stay injury free and learn the optimum alignment for your unique body to keep it pain free for life.  Our Yoga Therapy isn't just about Yoga, we infuse the wisdom of Ayurveda as well for your speedy recovery!

Why You Should Consider Yoga Therapy?

I was a die-hard Ashtanga Yogi!  The harder the practice, more I loved it and having a very driven personality, I could do it.  I sweated buckets and couldn’t get enough!  Now when I think back to that type of practice, the teachers felt more like cheerleaders who were always pushing us to do more regardless of how we looked.  A big adrenal kick!  Then I got smarter!  Why?  Yes, you guessed it! I developed a shoulder injury that led to frozen shoulder.  I continued on with the same practice like a hero, martyr or something, compensating for my injured shoulder with the rest of the body and I could not believe my posture when I looked in the mirror.  My body was so distorted.  I was horrified.  I had no choice but to slow down, pay attention to every little detail. It depressed me to slow down and limit my practice.  I had to learn to let go of what I wanted to do and really accept what I needed to do to restore my alignment.

That’s when I started to understand the therapeutic miracles of Yoga and started to practice and teach Yoga Therapy instead of a Yoga class! It was no longer about the postures, it was all about how to do the postures that added richness to the classes, raised student's awareness, deepened their understanding of their body and they carried that knowledge to how they walked, how they slept, how they sat and how they moved.  Simple awareness and alignment changed everything for them.

Yoga therapy requires you to:

  1. Slow down to create space for 2 reasons:  to promote deeper subtle mindfulness and to experience the other limbs of Yoga.  Why?  So your practice becomes more than physical and so what?  The non-physical limbs of Yoga ultimately help the physical part.  Everything affects everything else.  Our body, mind, energy, soul is all One!
  2. Honor your body!  A cliché used in many Yoga studios, but what does it mean?  It is more than feeding it good food and resting it.  It is valuing your body as a vehicle that contains your spirit.  What’s more valuable than your spirit?  Nothing!  So embrace and love your body, listen to what it needs and not what you want to do to it in your head, using the limitations as an access to deeper experience of your practice..( yes, the other non-physical limbs), using the strengths to celebrate.
  3. Honor pain, stiffness, limitations is where we do the “work” using props such as blocks, bolsters, blankets, belts, chair, stool,  wall, ceiling and the pole (a special feature of our studio)
  4. build the posture from bottom up, starting with our feet.  When we build the posture, it is ours uniquely as we honored our body in building and creating it.   We learn what to do with each part of our body, how does it fit in with the other parts, how to make the most out of our unique alignment so we gain freedom not only in our body but most importantly our spirit. Because we are no longer sulking over what we can’t do, instead we celebrate what we can!

Testimonials

Elena Vladi

I highly recommend Meena’s Individual Program. I joined in the hopes to address my anxiety and depression. Western therapy didn’t connect with me yet Meena’s approach was just the right thing. She is calm, knowledgable and wise. Meena gently guides to deeper and calmer understanding of mental health issues and life in general. I feel great and have the necessary tools to taken on further life challenges.

Phil Reed

I am 67 years old and having been dealing with chronic low back pain for the last 10 years.  I worked with pain clinic and physical therapy for 2 years. It was beneficial but I was not getting the results I had hoped for.  Before working with Meena Puri, on a average week, my pain level was 6 or higher on a scale of 1-10.  Rarely my pain went down to below 5.   I was very discouraged and felt depressed.

I had seen a documentary on healing and I knew that there is a connection between mind and body.   I explainged this to the pain clinic and the pyschologist but to no avail.

In working with Meena Puri, I have had the best improvement in all the years I have been struggling with back pain.  My pain level is now mostly around 3.  I have learned how to breathe, calm my mind and most importantly how to breathe into my body as I move it.  Before I would do all the exercises in a mechanical way, just like to task that I had to get done; now I feel my body, my breath and it feels so much more better and enjoyable.

I am a spiritual person and believe that all is ONE.  I am continuing my work with Meena to go deep into the Spirituality and heal myself even more.

Kornelia Stephnie

Donald M.

I have now worked with Meena Puri for several years. I will say my fear and depression are presently no longer an issue in my life. The physical benefits are quite obvious also. Spiritually, I feel connected to my God and fellow life here. I’ve learned to love myself and be thankful for people and things in life. This has been a process and not an event. The changes are very subtle. Meena is a wonderful teacher and human being. She is very skilled at pushing her students to the point that they bend but do not break: physically, spiritually, and emotionally.

Bethany Betzler

I experienced my first Kundalini yoga class at The Yoga School of Milford and felt its transformational effects instantly after class. I walked in feeling sleepy and weak, and walked out feeling mighty and ready to conquer the day. Kundalini yoga really revived my energy and now I can’t wait to make a regular habit of it. The Yoga School of Milford is a small studio that is attached to the owner Meena’s home, but it’s a very professional and inviting space and Meena has everything you need onsite for your practice. If you are looking for an authentic yoga experience and have grown tired of yoga classes that feel commercialized, this is the place for you.

Karen Baron

Meena has the true knowledge of Yoga which is why I have been with her for 10 Glorious Years! She embraces you with the individual attention you need on the physical body ailments and mental well-being, Thank you Meena for changing and enriching my life style changes into the peace and happiness of self discovery.

Cindy Hemingway 

I started doing yoga with Meena because I was having back pain. I’d had lower back pain for many years, but it was getting pretty intense, and I was a runner. I went to a chiropractor for almost a year, and tried sever other alternative homeopathic remedies, with no real improvement. I finally went to a neurosurgeon, who wanted to sign me up for surgery right away. I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease and herniated disc, and he wanted to put a metal caging system in my back. I opted out of that. I quit running, altered my exercise routine, and fit in yoga. Eventually, I realized the more yoga I did the better I felt. That was about four years ago, and now I do yoga at least three time a week. Yoga is the one and only thing that has worked for me. Yoga has done so much more for me than the physical aspect I was looking for. I am much more peaceful and a better person than I was before yoga. I have learned so much about myself. I absolutely love it, and recommend it to everyone.

Diane Simpson

There just aren’t enough good things to say about Meena and her studio. About six years ago I began in a Yoga Therapy class. I had been suffering from chronic back pain and had no improvement with physical therapy. On the suggestion of my General Practitioner I found such a class right here in Milford. The individual attention was so far and above my expectation. My abilities were assessed and she got me moving again. Over time I was able to move on to mixed level classes as well as core strength and cardio. I look forward to class not just because of what I am going to get out of it physically; through breathing and mediation I get to take a break from the hectic day to day and leave the studio energized and ready to take on the day.

Meena teaches basic Hatha Yoga Techniques including a mixture of strength and stretching poses. The main difference between Meena and other Yoga instructors that I have had is that she teaches what I consider the true Yoga.  She teaches her students to go inside of themselves and face the tight hardened areas in the body and breathe into them to feel all they can.  She encourages us to do this while staying with the breath and staying in the present moment. Yoga is no longer an intellectual exercise of cosntantly thinking about where to position your hand of foot ( as i experienced in many Iyengar classes) but becomes a multi-dimensional state of being.  At times, when I am doing Yoga this way, I feel a deep heat or shaking in my body and the reward of staying with it just a few seconds longer is release of tension and new strength.  Also, Meena always provides inspirational thoughts in a quiet manner that my being seems to soak up while we are doing Yoga.  I have had amazing release of heat from my palms, forrehead and crown of the head when in Shavasna.  I’ve also completely traveled away in this pose to the point where I wasn’t sure where I was.  I sleep much deeper after my yoga practice with Meena as well.

Cindy Fatura

Meena is able to almost magically adapt her instruction to fit all of the unique needs and abilities of each student in class while still maintaining a cohesive feel to the class

Lisa Fiddie

I was always afraid of yoga, thinking that my physical limitations made it impossible. Meena helped me see that anyone can do yoga. She does not push you, but instead guides you to your own personal limits. She has made me feel comfortable and able, and I am forever grateful. I can hardly wait for the Doctor to give me the OK to return to class!!

Jennifer Sigety

Love Meena & all of her wisdom & insight! She has helped me recover from multiple injuries. Highly Recommended ❤️

Marilyn Salvati

A few years ago, I went to Boulder, Colorado for a 3 day Yoga seminar sponsored by the Yoga Journal magazine. The top yoga instructors in the US were teaching and BKS Iyengar was also there.  I kept thinking about how much I preferred Meena’s style of teaching over all the teaching styles at this seminar.  And the reason for this is because Meena instructs from the space of being in the “Now” and this is the only space that true Yoga can come from.  I am a 56 year old woman and I started doing Yoga in my early 20’s.  I have had many yoga instructors but Meena is the best instructor I’ve ever had.

Jason Hegedos

Meena is a great instructor. The class I have with her now focuses on individuals who spend many hours at a desk. Even when I start the class with a sore back, I am pushed to stretch it out and ultimately strengthen it. I was rather leery at first, but am very glad I signed up!

Linda Gepper

Dear Meena, Your magic just continues!  I injured my shoulder a year ago.  I’ve been able to bring it back about 85-90 %, but not pain free.  Well, after the shoulder work yesterday I am now 100%!  Swam 20 laps today without even a twinge.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Susan L.

I was diagnosed with IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer).  Chemo left me with cognitive issues and out of balance.  I have been taking Meena’s special needs class for 4 months.  I have noticed a big difference in my ability to balance, I do not stutter as much I did before, it has been so beneficial for my mind and body that I have now my daughter in law and my friend join the classes.  I love it and will do it for the rest of my life.

KLF

Dearest Meena:  I first contacted you almost one year ago regarding RA, sadness & poor health. One of my issues was osteoporosis & a scary dexascan. I feared my bones were disintegrating. So I stuck with your nutritional & emotional advice and just received results of follow up dexascan. I have significant increase in bone density in most areas measured and NO increase in osteoporosis measured at all!

In addition to your prescribed herbs/food and open hearted & compassionate mindful practices, I have committed to a yoga practice that focuses on scoliosis. My height has NOT decreased👍 And I have not experienced any falls. Couldn’t wait to share with you and share my gratitude🙏

Ryan Storzbach

Good evening Meena. You may or may not remember me and that’s OK.  I wanted to reach out however and say thank you.

In the spring of 2018 my wife and I visited you. At the time, we were very curious to learn about Ayurvedic medicine and were excited to find a local practitioner. To make a long story short, you and I discussed many things, one of which was my drinking. I would have 1-2 beers every night, and anywhere from 4-6+ on weekend nights. I thought this was normal, since basically everyone in my social circle adheres to this behavior.

You looked me right in the eye and said, “well, that’s just alcoholism”. At the time, I sort of scoffed and brushed off your advice to reduce my drinking; I didn’t want to hear that it was a problem. It took me almost a year, but your words kept coming back to me: “well, that’s just alcoholism”. This past March 1st, I quit drinking 100%. Zip, zero ,zilch. I’ve lost 25 pounds and now have an unlimited membership at Citizen Yoga and attend class several times per week.

I’ve never felt better. And it really all started because you were the first person to tell me the truth about the amount I was drinking, so for that I would like to say a very heartfelt and grateful thank you!

Claire Casselman

The teachings Meena shares are mind-blowing — in a good way.   The teachings invite an opening of the mind, which leads to an opening of the heart, which is where healing can happen. I’m beginning to notice and more clearly see old patterns that reflect my fears.  While a little aggravating, this way of seeing and sensing spark my curiosity and hope for eventually transforming that fear-based energy.

David Ellis

Meena, is very intelligent and genuinely wanted to help me. I felt comfortable with her and her office setting and didn’t feel like a number. She gave me a real alternative to (ineffective) prescription drugs for me and my situation. Actually, she gave me a whole action plan of alternatives and it is working much better than drugs.

Claire

Meena is one of the most effective teachers I’ve known. She teaches with clarity, integrity, warmth and humor. Being in her presence is to be seen, accepted, gently challenged and encouraged. I’m becoming more aware that my habit is to use thoughts to change my feelings — who knew I can use my heart’s connection to the vast healing energy to transform and heal my troublesome feelings? Meena knows, and she generously and enthusiastically imparts the teachings. I’m so grateful!

Debra Schultz

Meena Puri is the real deal in Ayurveda and self care. I have a hard time grasping the concepts in Ayurveda but I trust Meena so I do not question her advice.She is caring, knowledgeable and soft spoken. I have learned how to meditate from her and practice Kundalini Yoga.Her vegetarian cooking is delicious. Try one of her Panchkarma therapies for a total relaxing experience. Invest in yourself with Meena. You will not be disappointed!

Cheyenne Boinais

Meena is an amazing woman and doctor! She is knowledgeable and gentle and does an amazing job of helping you find things that will either maintain your balance or help to correct your imbalances. I recommend going to see her as soon as you can as Ayurvedic medicine is one for prevention, It is far easier to STAY healthy then it is to GET healthy. I just finished a cleanse with her and I feel brighter and more ready for whatever comes my way. She tailors it to your needs and adjusts the different therapies to work to heal you more. I recommend this PK therapy (Panchakarma) to any one of any age.

Tekla Hall

As a student of Meena’s for over a decade my life has been enriched by her teachings of yoga. The Yoga School of Milford is more than just the physical practice of yoga. It is also engages the mind and the spirit through the practice of the breath and meditation. Meena has also worked with me on dietary issues and stress management through her Ayurvedic Healing Center. At the center we work one on one to recognize blocks and develop strategies that works for me to create a healthier environment and a healthier me. I am very grateful for the many teachings of Meena’s.?

Paul Woods

Playing in the N. H.L. for almost 8 years, took a toll on my body and resulted in many injuries and surgeries that ended my playing career. I became very stiff and had to endure a lot of pain and functioning on a daily basis became a challenge. I had a hard time skating and had to give up hockey and other sports that I loved to play. Simple things like getting in and out of the car, bending down, getting out of bed and just using my body to live became very difficult.  Along with that, I had chronic congestion that also affected the quality of my sleep. Telling my story to countless doctors and therapists left me frustrated as no one really listened or did anything of value to really help me besides prescribing more pain medication.

Meena Puri was the first person who not only understood my physical problems but provided me with concrete steps and solutions to address those issues. That was a welcome relief and gave me confidence that I could get better. Now after working with Ms. Puri for over a year and making lifestyle changes including nutrition, here are my results:

I am skating again and have been coaching hockey this summer.

My congestion is gone. I sleep soundly and through the night.

I have stopped taking all pain medication. No more side effects.

My posture and body alignment is much improved.

I feel more fluid and confident in my body and its ability to heal.

Overall weight and body fat is reduced.

Most importantly, this is only the beginning. I plan on getting better and better and restoring the quality of my life. Working with Ms. Puri and following her guidelines has been the key to my improvement and I am forever grateful.

Karen Baron

Meena with her knowledge of Ayurveda and Yoga has had such a positive meaningful influence of living in my day to day experiences. Her practice offers a holistic approach creating lifestyle changes to Balance Body and Mind. I truly trust and embrace all her individual attention. I have been with Meena for ten years and thank you for changing and enriching my life with peace and happiness.

Bethany Betzler

Meena’s knowledge and wisdom of healing is vast and I have experienced great improvements in my health thanks to her guidance and recommendations. What I love about Ayurveda and Meena’s teachings is that you are involving all senses in your healing process. From food to self-care, herbal supplements, meditation, and more, you will enjoy the process of becoming healthier because the new habits you cultivate will please your senses and bring more pleasure to your daily routine.

Stephanie Krogstad

I began seeing Meena in the spring of 2018 after having digestive issues. My doctor was unable to pinpoint the source of the problem but Meena asked questions regarding my diet and eating habits and attitudes about food. She then suggested a plant based diet and helped me to develop a new lifestyle that focused on awareness. This comprehensive plan alleviated my symptoms very quickly. I would highly recommend the Ayurvedic approach and Meena for her knowledge, guidance and wisdom. She has been a blessing on my path to emotional, spiritual and physical healing.

Kim V.

I have been Meena’s student for a very long time; over 15 years.  Over the years, apart from consistently attending her Yoga classes, I have attended almost every workshop and program that she has offered.  Every time I hear her talk or teach, I continue to digest the teachings at a deeper level.  I have also taken workshops with other teachers, but Meena brings it all together in a way that no other teacher has for me. As a result, I have a great sense of self and self-esteem and I continue to experience an increased sense of awareness, which has had a tremendous affect on all areas of my life, helping me live a meaningful, healthier and happier life. I am able to separate myself from my problems and get a different perspective and look at the bigger picture.  me the peace of mind, inner hope and self assurance that I got from Meena. Since childhood I have been living within a vortex of old beliefs that would recycle over and over, always leaving me insecure and unsure. In one session with Meena not only did she figure out what has been holding me captive all these years but she enabled me to free myself and I walked away with an inner peace and happiness, an assuredness that no matter what happens in life “I” can handle it, and a real understanding of who I am. I have awakened every day since feeling joy, excitement for the new day and real sense that I am all I need to make it through whatever life throws at me and that I will continue to thrive as this person I lost a long time ago. I still have lots of work to do to clear out the many layers of baggage I have built up, but I am finally ALIVE! As they say, if you continue to do as you’ve always done, you will continue to get what you’ve always gotten… That’s what I got with the so-called professionals. I needed something different, something more… and that is what Meena is guiding me to achieve. Meena is the change we could probably all use.

Colleen Kilpatrick

Meena was a life saver – literally! I visited her office because I was feeling intense anxiety that made my heart feel like it was beating laboriously. She put one hand on my upper back and one hand on my upper chest and listened intently. She then told me there was a mechanical issue with my heart and that I needed to see a cardiologist immediately. She was absolutely right. A couple days later I had emergency open heart surgery for a ruptured valve. I consider Meena one of the angels who saved my life. She is a kind, caring soul who takes the time to really get to know and understand her patients unique health situation and goals. He wisdom runs deep and her knowledge of all aspects of body, mind and spirit is vast. I consider myself fortunate to have such a gifted practitioner of Ayurveda and Yoga in my life. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking optimal health.

Julie Law

Meena Puri is a one-stop shop. I started seeing Meena for fatigue, allergies, and digestion issues and within a week of making slight changes to my diet, supplements, and routine I felt lighter in my body, congestion ceased, and I had more energy. Meena gave me easy guides to restart my meditation routine and with her gentle, yet earnest guidance, I began worrying less and feeling more grounded and centered with a clearer mind. Meena provides deep knowledge of the body, insight into calming the mind, and sage advice regarding connecting to what really matters in life – living from your center. I recommend Meena Puri for practical advisement and guidance on holistic healing in our daily lives.

L.T.

Meena Puri is an amazing healer and spiritual guide. She is attentive, caring, and proactive. I am very blessed to have found such a genuine, skilled practitioner to help me care for my body temple on this journey. Furthermore, her assessments of disease and ailments are never separate from the heart and spirit, which is the missing link with many medical practitioners. To anyone who is searching for an excellent Ayurvedic specialist, I wholeheartedly recommend Meena Puri.

Jeanne Tomlinson

Meena was very welcoming and knowledgeable. I felt at ease and appreciated her expertise. The center is lovely. Full of light and comfortable. I will be back many times to work with Meena.

Marci McGuire

There’s no substitute for the best! I have experienced several other yoga teachers, but Meena is by far the best I have encountered and I keep coming back! I have been practicing with Meena on and off for ~6 years and have made it a priority to grow my practice under her advisement for the past few years. Her yoga instruction has not only strengthened my body, but through her gentle guidance has also nourished my soul. When my life got tough she taught me to Meditate which has improved my mental health and well being. She introduced me to Kundalini which also has many benefits for the body and brain. I honestly can’t say enough good things about her teachings – hard to put into words, but once you experience it, you realize how good it is and how much you needed it! Her teachings have saved me many times over through prevention of physical and mental illnesses – can’t put a price on that! Much Love!

There are pivotal moments in life, which can change your direction. I had one of those moments when I met Meena. I had been through a number of physical trials that resulted in my relationships taking a turn for the worse. I started yoga and then Aryuveda with Meena. As I worked with her, I discovered things about myself that I had never known before. That awareness has transformed my relationships and allowed me to grow in ways that I didn’t think were possible. Her gentle guidance helped me to understand where I was coming from and how to deal with the issues. The breathing and meditation techniques have also helped me to deal effectively with stress. The dietary changes have helped me live a healthier lifestyle. I can’t say enough about what she has done for me.
