How Rasa came to be.
I bet you all have heard this line at a dinner party once: ‘Live your life now, because before you know it it’s over’. I remember my grandma saying this several times to me when I was younger, but I never really understood what she was trying to say until I got burned out. All of a sudden it came to me that I was living my life from my head for more than a decade.
As the old scriptures on Ayurveda say it so beautifully ‘Ayurveda is for those who are desirous of life’ or in other words, if you want to increase your zest for life you have to find out what your unique potential is. Because only if you live up to your uniqueness will you find out that zest for life is following on its own.
Finding your own melody, your taste, your juice in life is closer than you might imagine and is the main aim behind startwithrasa.com.
So there you go, that’s why we start with Rasa.
Roughly translated from Sanskrit ‘Rasa’ is ‘the juice of life that keeps you going’. It literally means to taste, essence, juice, and enthusiasm. As such it is your key ingredient needed for a happy and healthy life.
Are you ready to tune in with your Rasa? Start with Ayurveda today and you will notice that you can shape your own happiness along the way.

My name is Kim and after fighting off an auto-immune disease myself using Ayurveda, I started Rasa to share what Ayurveda taught me, in plain English.
You can read my full story here if you’re interested.
At Rasa, I’m on a mission to help you keep an open mind, live healthier, and happier. Because I do believe that if you take responsibility for your own happiness you are making a positive shift in the world and that is all I’m hoping for. That we, together, create a positive change in the world and as such find more peace.
Lastly, if you want to see what Ayurveda looks like in real life, you can find me on Instagram where I share how I put Ayurveda to work in my daily life. I made a promise to keep it real, not too polished up (although I’m a sucker for good looking images). So expect a healthy mix of deep spiritual wisdom, honest reflections, practical tips and tricks, recipes, and guilty pleasures.
