Damian Hagglund

Damian lived in India for 18 years and studied with many great masters. In 1995, Damian met Dr. Madusudan Ray, while on a search for relief from sciatica. After implementing the warrior system of Ayurveda, Damian was able to heal himself and after much dedication and persistence became Dr. Madhusudan Ray’s first western disciple (student). Since leaving his studies in India in 2004, Damian has dedicated his life to serving others by sharing his experience and knowledge of Ayurveda in Europe, Australia and the USA.

He treats and coaches yoga masters, celebrities, politicians, pro-sports personalities, children and house holders. Damian takes a no nonsense attitude and approach to your health and well being and has a deep desire for being of service in your process of healing.


Katie Grossman

A native of Westchester, NY, Katie grew up without much influence from preventative healing modalities. She quickly realized that her health struggles could not be solved by the medical system alone, and turned to alternative therapies for relief. Katie was introduced to Ayurveda in 2010 while she was studying yoga. She implemented the foundation of Ayurveda into her daily life and started to see results.

In 2011, Katie began studying and working with Damian Hagglund and Bud Tansey. She continues her studies with Dr. Madhusudan Ray, Damian Hagglund, and a number of other masters to refine her practice while she shares her knowledge, understanding and experience of Ayurveda in the US and abroad.
