When & Where
Deacon Carpenter / Sarah Bell
Based in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Deacon Carpenter works with patients from every walk of life who have many unique health conditions. He believes an accessible approach to Ayurveda is the key to achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
At the age of 16, illness and obesity led Deacon to a fateful meeting with a local Ayurvedic doctor, which created a shift in Deacon’s perception of food, health and physical balance. Heeding the advice of his doctor, Deacon modified his diet, started to practice yoga and shed over 140 pounds. To Deacon, Ayurveda and yoga together just made sense. Once he was educated and empowered to understand what was causing him to be sick, the steps to reclaiming his health were clear and simple.
Deacon also teaches a practical approach to Ayurveda at Maharishi University of Management, educated medical professionals at Scripps Integrated Medical Center, San Diego and is the creator of the VedaBar – the first real nutrition bar based on Ayurvedic principles.
