Ajai has been created by meditation teacher and founder of Thyroid Yoga®, Fern Olivia Langham (Ravi Priya Kaur). Through her healing journey from Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism and extensive studies of the technologies of yoga, meditation, breathwork, mantra, holistic health, and plant-based alchemy, Fern Olivia combined her passion for plants with her love of organic beauty to birth Ajai as a luxury apothecary.
Ajai was inspired by Fern Olivia's healing journey which began nearly 10 years ago. Frustrated by her diagnosis of an autoimmune condition and the pills upon pills prescribed by her medical team, she took her health into her own hands and began treating herself using holistic and integrative therapies including a whole-food, anti-inflammatory diet, infrared sauna, acupuncture, massage, yoga, breathwork, meditation, and cleaned out any toxic residue from her life - including relationships and a corporate job in finance that burned out her adrenals and stifled her creativity. Her healing expanded when she moved from New York where she had lived for nearly 30 years, to California, where she currently resided for two years before releasing her LA base and relocating to the Blue Zone of Nosara, Costa Rica where she currently lives in her tree house in the jungle.
Along her journey, she learned that it's not just what we put on and in our bodies that alters how we look and function - everything begins with our mind and the thoughts and stories we attach to. As she began to change the inner workings of her mind using the potent technologies of Kundalini Yoga, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Meditation, Breathwork, and Self-Care, everything began to shift on an accelerated, amplified scale.
Curating the purest organic ingredients nature has to offer, Fern Olivia began to nourish her body with the most powerful bio-available elements on the planet rather than attacking it with harsh, toxic chemicals, parabens, and synthetics found in commercial products. She began exploring the potent healing properties of plant-based essential oils and how they work in harmony with our bodies synergistically as catalysts for accelerated healing of the physical body as well as enhancing the mind, psyche, and the spirit.
As a result, Ajai and Thyroid.Yoga™ were born to empower others with the same alchemies Fern Olivia continues to practice to keep her body glowing and her mind clear.
As an advocate and passionate crusader for radical self-love and luxurious self-care, Fern Olivia works with men and women to create daily rituals to accelerate healing, build strength, and find joy in relationships, career, and all aspects of life. In addition to her Thyroid.Yoga™ practice which is also available internationally, Fern teaches meditation and yoga retreats and experiences and speaks on the topics of natural beauty, self-love, meditation, and healing at events around the world.
Fern Olivia is a graduate of Syracuse University with a dual degree in Biomedical Engineering and Entrepreneurship & Emerging Enterprises, The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and has completed Immense Grace Training under the mentorship of her teacher, Guru Jagat at Ra Ma Institute for Applied Yogic Science and Technology. She has also studied extensively with her mentors Elena Brower, Abbie Galvin and Nevine Michaan at Katonah Yoga in New York City.
Ajai organic beauty alchemy is available online, and can also be found in a variety of boutiques and apothecaries across the country in New York, Los Angeles, Sedona, and Costa Rica.
