Tess Rosenbush (Montalvo)

We honor the legacy of Tess by retaining her words here.
C.M.T, C.A.S., P.K.S.

In 1993 while living in the Hawaiian Islands Tess experienced her spiritual life unfolding through the path of Bhakti Yoga. Through her exploration of Vedic knowledge, Karma Yoga, Mantra, Hatha Yoga, and Vedic Cooking, she developed a sadhana or daily spiritual practice. This inspired Tess to learn more about the healing science of Ayurveda. By her own self-study and practical application, she experienced profound healing benefits through changes in diet, lifestyle and the use of medicinal herbs and healing treasures. Tess developed a great respect for this holistic healing system which stimulated her interest in moving to California and attending the California College of Ayurveda (CCA) to further her study.

While attending CCA Tess had the opportunity to integrate ayurvedic methods during her pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful daughter named Chandravali. As a result she experienced a great metamorphosis. She gracefully entered the transformation into motherhood, and empowered by this transition in her life, she continued her studies and graduated from CCA and the American Institute of Vedic Studies as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist (C.A.S.) and Pancha Karma Specialist (P.K.S.). She also furthered her bodywork skills by completing an intensive certification in Thai Yoga Massage, at Spirit Winds School of Thai Massage.

Tess assisted with the Pancha Karma Specialist Trainings in Grass Valley, California. As well as the Ayurvedic Body Therapy Workshops through CCA’s certification programs.

Tess felt that anyone who comes into contact with this ancient healing tradition enters the path of self-discovering. This may ultimately lead to a transformation that ignites one’s innate wisdom. The ways of ayurvedic practice inspire the vision to revere life in its true essence as spirit and to give honor to these bodies through healthy and conscious choices. Tess encourages her clients to allow this process to awaken naturally. She believed that true healing happens within the life-energy of the body and with time the dance of equanimity unfolds. Tess saw how this process is synonymous with the yogic path of Bhakti which is the practice of cultivating love and devotion to the Supreme. By choosing to live responsibly we create right relationship with ourselves, with others and ultimately with God.
