Marcia Meredith 
Ayurveda Practitioner
Nurse Practitioner

The word Ayurveda is a combination of two Sanskrit words, Ayuh means life and Veda means knowledge. Translated the word means “the science of life” or “the knowledge of life.” The central philosophy of ayurveda is that the mind, body, and spirit/consciousness define a human being, and that physical health can be achieved only when it includes emotional, mental, and spiritual health.

Ayurveda is growing in our beautiful Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and in all of Minnesota!

Dear clients and friends of Ayurveda,

Thank you for visiting my website. I am excited to offer this holistic, ancient system of medicine as an option to, and in addition to, the other health and wellness opportunities you have in this area.

I offer a consultative Ayurveda practice. I am also a nurse practitioner and offer an integrative approach to health and wellness.  In addition, I offer some Ayurvedic treatments and massage. Please see the Services page for details.

My practice is located in the Ivy Building for the Arts in south Minneapolis Seward neighborhood. I am happy to address any health concern you may have. I am taking new clients.

I generally book out about two months. This is due to running the Minnesota Institute of Ayurveda and my busy consultative practice.

Please email or call me to schedule an appointment. I prefer email if that is possible for you. If not, feel free to call me.



I look forward to meeting with you!

Ayurveda is the art of living in harmony with nature.

The Minnesota Institute of Ayurveda is now open!

Our school is a training program for clinical Ayurveda

practitioners which means our graduates will be ready to see clients for Ayurvedic wellness and health consultations upon graduation. Our students will receive mentoring during the program, and I would like all new and returning clients to be aware that I will be asking for your willingness to allow students to observe our consultations. Of course you may refuse this request. But if you are open to having students observe, you can expect this to be a part of our visits in the future. Thank you, Marcia.

The Scope of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is said to be that science where what is useful and 
detrimental (to health/life); the happy and unhappy (states of) life; what is
good and bad for life, its
measurement (span/length); and life
itself are described.Welcome_files/ganesha%20%231.webarchive

Quotes from Marcia’s clients:

  "I have struggled with several medical problems in recent years and have sought treatment from a number of practitioners, both traditional and alternative.  After only 2 sessions with Marcia and employing her Ayurvedic recommendations, my body has fully settled down and is functioning like it did 40 years ago.  I feel truly blessed for her expert guidance, along with her kind, respectful, educational approach, enabling me to recover my health."   C

“Ayurveda has provided me with a new perspective on myself - physically and emotionally, and has enhanced my capacity for caring for myself and for others.  Not only do I have new insights about my own natural tendencies, but I am able to treat myself with much more compassion and kindness.  In addition, I have a greater capacity for forgiveness of others - my kids, my husband, my mother-in-law, my boss, my coworkers - because I see their struggles in a new light.

In addition to helping me understand when I am in balance or off balance, Ayurveda has given me tools to regain balance when I feel mounting anxiety or irritability, when I have trouble sleeping, or when I have a flare-up of acne.” K
