Kristen Timchak has been curious and enamored with plants since she was a child and grew her first herb garden with her father (well, he did most of it!).
Kristen studied Ayurveda at Kripalu's School of Ayurveda and completed the 650 hour Ayurvedic Lifestyle Specialist Training, studying with a variety of teachers, including Rosy Mann, John Douillard, Vasant Lad, Robert Svoboda, Claudia Welch, and others. She worked and interned at Lakshmi's Garden, a small Panchakarma center in Western Ma, where she cooked and learned the Ayurvedic Treatments in an apprentice format.
She continued her curiosity with the plant world with the Farm to Farmacy internship at Goldthread Farm, which was one of the first Herbal CSAs in the country.
In 2012, Kristen moved to Nevada City, Ca where she worked as an herbalist at HAALo, a progressive herb store in town.
Kristen loves growing herbs and making medicine, and all things Ayurveda. Her special interest is in nervous system health and self care.
