TIFFANY NICHOLSON-SMITH

An International Teacher, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and a Lover of Life, Tiffany shares the gifts of Meditation, Yoga & Ayurveda globally. Tiffany grew up in the quiet and solitude of the Canadian countryside, and from a young age she questioned the meaning of life and existence, finding some solace in the teachings of Christianity. However, her thirst was never entirely quenched there. In her early twenties, on a trip within the jungles of Mexico, she had a revelatory experience that connected her to the immanence of death and brought her to inquire further into the nature of existence. Life quickly directed her to India and Thailand, where she lived for many years and was given the opportunity to study and submerse herself in ongoing teachings and extensive retreats with her teachers, immersing herself deeply into Advaita Vedanta, Tantric Hatha Yoga, Buddhism & Ayurveda. 

When she was 24 she came across the teachings of Ramana Maharishi and made her way to Tiruvannamalai and the Arunachala mountain in South India. While there, she encountered depths of inner seeing that were irreversible and continued to propel her forward in her recognition of Truth. From that moment she became a devotee of Advaita Vedanta (Non-Duality) and has spent most of her adult life immersed in extensive periods of personal and guided silent retreats with her beloved teachers: Mooji, Sahajananda & Adyashanti. Having sat for many years with these great masters and due to her own profound inspirations and insights gained over this time, she lovingly transmits and shares this wisdom, which reveals the naturalness of Being. 

Tiffany is most known for bringing her clarity of sight and commitment towards revealing truth into each of her seamless offerings. The inspired teachings that pour through her are a direct expression of her visibly open heart, coupled with a depth of presence. Students appreciate her art of drawing upon the wisdom of these approaches to offer their truths in ways that are are highly applicable, direct and authentic, and provoke profound self-seeing.

Today, Tiffany is the founder of Vichara Yoga, a very unique offering of Classical Yoga that combines the fullness of the Tantric Hatha Yoga Path along with deep Inquiry & Meditative presence. She has also founded Rasa Ayurveda, a School, Clinical Practice & Apothecary sharing the authentic, healing wisdom of Ayurveda. 

At present Tiffany travels worldwide offering Retreats, Trainings and Immersions/YTTs, as well as Ayurvedic Consultations and Private Sessions through her mobile clinical practice in which she sees people in-person and online. She is also excited to soon be offering inspiration through her upcoming Blog & Podcast, ‘Ushering Dharma’.

She bows in humble gratitude to all of the beings who have influenced and inspired her path, and who continue to live on through these sharings of the Heart.
