Sattva Soul Supplements

Verve catches up with Celine Wallace, an Ayurvedic practitioner and founder of Sattva Soul Retreats, a women’s transformational retreat and event company; and Sattva Soul Supplements, an organic Ayurvedic supplement line for stress and anxiety.

You’ve lived many lives! Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I grew up in  Auckland and was one of those kids who was always chasing a dream. That dream led  me to Hollywood, where I lived as an actress and yoga teacher for a decade until I reached burnout.

When my health began to suffer because I was trying to be everything to everyone, I went on a journey to find out what health meant to me. I left my life behind in LA and went from Hollywood to Bali, then the Himalayas in  India,  and  studied   thousands  of hours of yoga, meditation, and Ayurvedic medicine. I knew no one in these countries, but I knew there had to be more to life than what I was currently experiencing.

What was the motivation behind creating Sattva Soul Retreats and Sattva Soul Events?

I was so passionate about my journey, wondering why we have to reach burn out before we take care of ourselves, so upon returning home to Auckland, I founded Sattva Soul Retreats. ‘Sattva’  means  balance  in Sanksrit, so I wanted to create immersive events and retreats that offered women tools to find balance in their own lives before they reached burn out or without having to travel to the other side of the world.

What’s the difference between a transformational retreat and a vacation retreat?

A vacation retreat is fantastic, but other than a pina colada and a bit of a suntan, nothing changes after you return home from that vacation.

In a transformational retreat, your whole perspective shifts, and in the best way possible, which is why all our events and retreats are always sold out! I feel very grateful they have been received so well.

What led you to become interested in ancient Ayurvedic medicine, and how did this lead to your latest venture, Sattva Soul Supplements?

After the events and retreats, women came to me, asking for stress and anxiety support. They were mothers or busy career women and suffered from nervous system overload. I looked around and couldn’t find all organic, FDA-approved supplements, with the Ayurvedic practitioner dosage supplements that got results, so I created my own!

Ashwagandha is an anti-adaptogen that helps your body adapt  to  stress and anxiety, and this ancient Ayurvedic medicinal  herb  has  been around for years. I created an Organic Ashwagandha capsule that is an easy and effective way to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful herb that are all organic, FDA approved, and without fillers or yucky additives.

It’s rewarding to be able to offer my ladies an all-natural alternative before they turn to pharmaceuticals and with the knowledge to know where it’s come from and that I take it too! My rule is I would only ever suggest something to a client that I would consume myself, so now I feel comfortable enough to do that.
