Our founder, Kay Katwa, grew up surrounded by Ayurvedic traditions. Ayurveda is an ancient Indian philosophy which translates to mean “knowledge of life”. It provides insight into how individuals can live in harmony with the natural world.
One vital element of Ayurveda is embracing nature and harnessing its age-old wisdom. For this reason, Kay believes self-empowerment begins in nature’s plant world and continues in our kitchens. Whilst she uses Ayurvedic teachings to support herself and her loved ones, her mission to share this knowledge more widely didn’t start until she became a nutritional therapist.
Fuelled by her passion for using food to find vitality, Kay studied to become a registered nutritional therapist. Throughout her time as a student and beyond she noticed one theme: That the principles she was handed in the kitchen as a child were backed up by modern science.
This sparked her quest to bring together ancient wisdom with modern scientific understanding, in a way that was easy and accessible, even to those with no past experience of Ayurvedic principles.
She began her journey towards building Surya Prana Nutrition by searching for an ingredient that exemplified this quest: Turmeric. Known as “The golden spice” of Ayurveda, it has been used for centuries for a variety of conditions. Recent modern nutritional research has further proven just how timeless it can be as one part of a healthy lifestyle.
Kay sourced turmeric that is well-loved by practitioners and individuals seeking to live a more healthful lifestyle. Then, using her combination of tradition, wisdom and experience, she began to offer a range of other plant-based ingredients and blends to help you thrive. From our Organic Ceylon Cinnamon, to our Organic Amla Blend, each is born from this desire to combine nutritional research and Ayurvedic wisdom.
We’re here to help anyone who is passionate about organic, natural and nutritious food, who is curious about Ayurveda or who wants to live a life more aligned with the rhythms of nature.
Not only do we love working with practitioners who are seeking high-quality products that could help support their clients, but we also love empowering individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to understand their own wellbeing.
