Tim Mitchell is originally from Australia but now based in Prague. He teaches Vedic Meditation, Ayurveda and Yoga around the world. His love for food and joy of cooking is contagious. In his seminars and individual consultations, he teaches his students how to cook easily, colourfully and quickly. No long hours spent at the stove, but a healthy nourishing delightful dinner in 20 minutes. Tim imparts to his students that Ayurveda is not a foreign inaccessible science but actually the common sense of all grandmothers. A time honoured system in India and now easily applied in our modern rushed era. It enables us to find an order in what we might perceive as a chaotic world around us...
