Claudia Gukeisen, MA, AHC, RYT500, SRMT

Claudia Gukeisen, M.A., is a certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor and Ayurvedic Yoga Teacher who helps clients balance daily and seasonal health challenges using the principles of Ayurveda, a medical system deeply rooted in India.  She specializes in applying these principles to the maintenance of general health and well-being, as well as to discovering the root causes of a client’s stress, insomnia and sleep issues, digestive problems, nervous system issues or female health concerns including menstrual and menopause issues.  Claudia discovered the benefits of an Ayurvedic lifestyle 10 years ago when she was suffering from severe TMJ issues and diagnosed with acid reflux, anemia and uterine fibroids and was able to avoid both medication and surgery.


She is also an Ayurvedic Nutrition and Culinary Educator who designs custom tailored food programs for clients which include the use of teas, cooking spices and herbs to promote healing and balance. Based on the needs and interests of a client, sessions may also include stress reduction and breathing techniques, an individualized yoga practice, yoga nidra, reiki and energy work, and/or gentle seasonal cleanses.


As an educator in both traditional and non-traditional settings, Claudia has worked as a Sr. Manager of Sotheby’s NY, an Assistant Director at the American Museum of Natural History in NYC and as Lead Teacher of a Montessori classroom for ages 6-9.
