Ki was born in Paris and spent her youth in France, Australia, and Vanuatu. Ki’s career in the holistic health industry began over 30 years ago and has been a journey of personal healing as well as facilitating healing in others.
Ki came to America to compete as a professional Body Builder, with the intention of being a healthy role model for women. After rising to the top and traveling worldwide, she sustained a career ending back injury. Ki eschewed the idea of surgery, despite her doctors’ recommendations, after having a spiritual re-awakening which strenghtened her desire for understanding the true nature of her life, and what had led her to this experience.
Ki’s injury and subsequent recovery inspired her to develop an understanding of her own character armor that formed as a result of emotional scarring and early childhood traumas, causing deeply embedded Samskaras (imprints). Ki’s research led her to appreciate the impact of the mind-body connection, and how beliefs and memories manifest physically. Through Yoga, Ayurveda, and Jyotish, she came to understand the blueprint of her present Karmas, how to live harmoniously with her constitution, and the path to liberation through Ashtanga Yoga. Following this path, through her dedication and search for knowledge, Ki was drawn to study the Vedic Sciences. Ki’s exhaustive research on her travels gives her a unique perspective on the vast spectrum of knowledge that is the Vedic Sciences. Ki studied Jyotish through ACVA, The Institute of Vedic Art & Sciences, Yoga in Mysore India, and holds a degree as an Ayurveda Doctor & Pancha Karma Specialist from the California College of Ayurveda, as well as ongoing advanced studies through Maharishi Ayurveda. She is an ongoing student of Jyotisha studying the Jaimini Sutras & Parasara along with Mantra Shastra in the lineage of Pandit Sanjay Rath.
The Ki-Atsu Institute invites you to be a part of a new generation of healers in the world and return yourself and our planet to Harmonious Living through Jyotisha, Ayurveda & the Art & Practice of Living Yoga.
