At Still Point Ayurveda, it is understood that health is an outward expression of an inner experience; and everyone's inner experience is different. With healthful living becoming a trend, it is hard to know which direction is right for you. There are options for diet, exercise, meditation, even the best water to drink. It can be overwhelming and frustrating, especially when what worked for your friend or family member is not working out the same way for you, and no one can tell you why. Dr. Aragona understands because we know that you are unique. At Still Point Ayurveda, the intention is to help you align with your right to live life fully, healthfully, and completely doing what is best for your individual needs. Still Point Ayurveda can support you through its many services ranging from Ayurvedic medicine and various bodywork/energy techniques to yoga classes and cooking workshops.

"Stillness has the power to heal the body and to awaken a higher energy and awareness in the mind. Such yogic stillness, however, is not an enforced stillness born of personal effort but a natural stillness born of deep relaxation."- Vamadeva Shastri (Dr. David Frawley)
