Farida Irani, AUSTRALIA

Ways to approach fear and anxiety in this current time

Farida Irani founded Subtle Energies as a clinic in 1993. She is an Ayurveda Practitioner, Clinical Aromatherapist and teacher qualified in Aromatic Medicine, as well as a Senior Bowen Therapy Instructor, Remedial Therapies practitioner and Reflexologist. She completed her Postgraduate studies (Ayurveda Nishnata) with world renowned Prof Dr P. H. Kulkarni (Ex Dean Ayurveda University, Pune, India). In October 2006, the International Ayurveda Open University awarded Farida her Ayurveda Parangat in recognition of her research in Ayurveda.

Through her clinical research and studies Farida has combined the ancient sciences of Ayurveda with the science of Aromatherapy and has been successful in reviving this ancient branch using essential oils in Ayurveda. She has therefore been regarded as a pioneer in the concept of Ayurveda Aromatherapy. Her work has received international recognition and awards, from Ayurveda, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and other health industries. The Australian Government has accredited her work as a Diploma in Ayurveda Aromatherapy, which is a nationally recognised qualification.
From this back ground, she transformed her clinical work into a brand under Subtle Energies that could be accessed by many delivering high performance results empowering one’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Today Subtle Energies is a global family business with partnerships that include some of the world’s most exclusive destinations including Six Senses Spas, The Peninsula Hotel Group, Select Mandarin Oriental Hotels and key historic Four Seasons properties
Farida spends her time speaking at international conferences, teaching at the Subtle Energies College of Ayurveda Aromatherapy, running her clinic, volunteer works and has cofounded 'Ayurveda Yoga Australia' which holds the renowned International Ayurveda & Yoga Conference. Farida is also responsible for bringing the Australian science of Bowtech, the original Bowen Therapy, to India and Taiwan and establishing training and therapist programs there.

Farida's session at botanica2020 is divided into 3 parts and presented as a special botanica bonus in the face of the global pandemic that has touched us all. Farida says : "Meditation and healing affirmations can be powerful tools, not just for ourselves through this period but collectively for the world as we ride this storm together. Come join us for a discussion with Farida Irani which will give insights into how we can use these tools to ground and empower ourselves through these uncertain times."
