Exploring Life & Business with Ananda De Martini of Anandevi

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ananda De Martini.

Hi Ananda, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I was adopted from India and grew up in Colorado. Concepts of miracles, destiny, and mysticism were threaded into my understanding of life due to this early life event. There was this innate knowing that I had access to ancient knowledge and tradition; there was a road to follow. My imagination was strong and wild and I would make up all sorts of scenarios relating to my origin story. For some, their roots are not that important. That has not been my case. For me, connecting to my roots has been my life journey.

I went back to India for the first time after birth in 2015. Traveling to my birthplace was a catalyst moment. I took a break from my career in fashion and committed to a path of healing. I began studying Ayurveda, Pelvic Steaming, and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), which is what my work is today.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Healing work is not a straight path. Adoption left a bruise and I needed to look at it. I’ve also experienced sexual trauma and the two together created a very unstable inner structure. It’s been a challenging road but a fruitful one. It is directly my struggles and story that have influenced my work. Experiencing such turbulence made me yearn for simplicity and sovereignty. The more I study Vedic Astrology, the more I feel like there is harmony and understanding in who I am, my experiences, and why I do what I do. The term “Sarve Karmesu Madhyamam” stuck with me. It means to live the medium path in Sanskrit.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about Anandevi?
Bringing in Astrology, I have a dual sign, so I tend to do multiple things. I have a side jewelry line, which are reiki-charged everyday talismans meant to bring about luck to the wearer. And I’ve just launched full-time into my healing arts practice and have a physical location in the Pacific Palisades. I love holding space for self-awareness and helping humans on the path of self-discovery.

There are two ways that we can work together. You can book an in-person session for Reiki or Pelvic Steaming or you can book a virtual session for an Ayurvedic wellness consult or a natal reading. No previous background of any of these offerings is necessary and everything is translated into plain English.

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
I am passionate about women’s wellness and embodiment and the reclamation of the body. Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology are the backbone of what I offer and the knowledge or lens that I view the universe. These practices have helped me remain kind and grounded in a world that can feel unconscious at times.

In the West, we do not necessarily recognize lineage, but I’m grateful to be a part of some amazing lineages of wisdom and knowledge. With this profession, I’m often enrolled in some sort of training or program. I’m currently studying Erotic Movement Arts with Rie Katagiri, as well as enrolled in a program with Ellen Heed called STREAM(Scar Tissue Remediation, Education and Management). This is an exciting step in the evolution of my work, so please stay tuned for clinical hours!
