The new plans for Myras Ayurvedic institute, “Hale Pule” as it moves to New Zealand.

Myra founded Hale Pule Ayurveda and Yoga in 1999 as a place for those on a journey towards greater health and genuine contentment.

Myra embraced the power of Ayurveda and Yoga when her career as a corporate executive had previously made it difficult to manage her health. This prognosis pushed her to seek out a holistic lifestyle that would allow her body and mind to find balance.

She undertook trainings in Ayurveda and Yoga in India and around the world and as she healed her own body and mind through these ancient sciences, they became the foundation for her life.

Myra is the author of two books, Freedom in Your Relationship with Food and Simple Ayurved
