Hello, I’m Rasangi, founder of Journey into Ayurveda.

For the past several years I have trained and qualified as an Ayurvedic Practitioner under the expert guidance of one of the foremost Ayurvedic doctors in Europe,

Dr Deepika Rodrigo (B.A.M.S) at the highly renowned Ayurvedic Institute, UK.

My career background is in the NGO sector in South Asia and in Higher Education in the UK. I have spent the last 18 years at the University of Oxford in the Medical and Life Sciences and the Social Sciences divisions. I still work at Oxford but in a less demanding and consciously chosen role so that I am able to dedicate some of my time to this life enriching practice. 

Ayurveda has been a part of my life since early childhood in Sri Lanka. Ayurvedic cooking, along with the use of spices and oils for various ailments is something that was instilled in me from an early age. I am grateful to the doctors at the Ayurvedic Institute who have enabled me to take it to another level by imparting the more complex medicinal aspects of authentic Ayurveda (special thanks to Dr Wathsala Wijesinghe (B.A.M.S, SL.Msc – Plant Sciences MD). It has been truly inspirational to learn how effective this ancient holistic medicinal system is in treating the ever-increasing conditions that we are faced with today.

My goal as an Ayurvedic Practitioner is to be a part of your healing journey in an empathetic and empowering way, so that you gain the tools to maintain your own health and well-being over the course of your life.

My message to you - if there is a niggling ailment, please don't disregard it. Awareness and early prevention is key.

I have been interested in Ayurveda for some time and was keen to try a gentle natural approach to help my recurring gut issues,

as conventional medicines only seemed to treat the symptoms.
And so it was wonderful to have  a proper consultation with Rasangi. 

She has great insight and was able to identify what I needed to address to help heal my gut.
She gave a me comprehensive guide to follow for my diet along with Ayurvedic herbs, and a Sri Lankan oil that everyone needs in their life!
It wasn’t the easiest journey but my goodness it was worth it!
Rasangi has helped me understand which foods harm and heal and how to move forward in nourishing myself.
