Nectar of time is beautiful place to remember that we are part of something grand. I’m amazed how Kaya’s teachings are generous, uplifting, and ever nourishing. It’s never about what you must do, but how to find and live the magic in our daily lives. Nectar of Time helps ground me. It reminds me that all is a dance with everything that moves from the very cup of tea I poor in the morning to more important issues in my life. With Kaya, it’s never about information, though you get plenty. She shares wisdom, Vedic wisdom that it reaches your heart. You grow, you learn, you transform. It’s not a course that you take and move on to the next thing. It lingers with you, it stays with you, it supports you. You are not a consumer of information, it’s always about connection. And that is so rare in this modern world.
I love the Nectar of Time! Kaya is a fabulous teacher and shares her wisdom in such a nurturing way. Every session is shared in a way that makes it easy to understand and apply to my life. The sessions give me time and space to slow down and tune in. Building this time in to my monthly routine has been the perfect way to take a sacred pause. The impact these sessions have had on my life have been profound. It's changing the way I look at and I interact with the universe. Making conscious decisions to live my life in a more harmonious way has greatly improved my life. I look forward to each session and I’m so grateful to have such a warm and nurturing teacher!
I spent so much of life pushing against forces beyond my control but Kaya shows a more calm, deeper more harmonious way through life - if we know what the cycles are, and the remedies and the practices that will support us. The teachings and stories in the Nectar of Time always come at the perfect moment. I might be right in the middle of the kind of struggle that Kaya is talking about, and she gives the remedies, practices, mantra to alleviate struggle and accentuate the blessings of the time. On top of all the beautiful wisdom, there is the community, and the feeling that you’re not alone, and that there are many people trying to live a life that is more harmonious and in tune with these beautiful wisdom teachings. It's such a gift and I cannot imagine living without it now.
In March the Vedic Calendar Brings

Mahā Śivarātri, Holī & Eclipse

Our month together begins with our live vedic astrology guidance for the month. We join again to honor the original yogi & one of the most sacred nights of the year – Mahāśivarātri. Our month is filled with stories & teachings about Śiva & the sacred union of Śiva-Śakti. The full moon of March brings both the Holī celebration and the start of an eclipse “season”. We will have stories, teachings & guidance for both. Every story offers hidden meanings to guide you in your life & spiritual growth.  

Plus! Inside the SRY studio Kaya will share  a healing āsana journey connected to the union of Śiva-Śakti.

Tea & Jyotish by Michael & Kaya


Monthly live Tea & Jyotish sessions created by Kaya and her husband, vedic astrologer, Michael Manzella are accessible and inspired. The Live Q&As make the sharing even more meaningful & clear. 

The Nectar of time has been an incredible support, especially for someone that is a student of Jyotisha. Every month I look forward to hearing Kaya's stories, wisdom and knowledge that can easily be integrated on the earthly realm.. The way I perceive other people has changed. This really has been the biggest transformation, to spontaneously be able to understand, perceive and feel the microcosm as the macrocosm and move away from old beliefs. I am very happy that Nectar of time is continuing and as always thank you Kaya for what you bring to light for us.
The Nectar of Time has been incredibly supportive and uplifting for me. I am more deeply connected to the rhythm of the cosmic order. The stories and lessons shared give me deeper insight on both a micro and macro level. The jyotish shared helps me understand and interpret experiences I am having and helps me navigate life's circumstances with more grace and assurance. Being part of the Nectar of Time community has been a profound blessing in my life.
Nectar of Time is an all-embracing guide in my every day life and my spiritual practice. Kaya shares Vedic astrology, ancient teachings, self-care tips and more in a way that allows me to apply these in my daily life. Especially the Jyotish insights and the way it affects our lives is so helpful to me. Though the teachings are complex, I never feel overwhelmed and we can always ask questions throughout the month. Kaya’s teachings help me in a lot of ways. But if I had to pick only one, it would be that I live my life with a lot more inner stability. I've established a healthy routine (with yoga classes and delicious recipes inside the program) and live in a more natural rhythm now.

I’m so grateful for finding my way to you. Your teachings are everything I've been looking for. The Feminine Divine teachings and stories in particular are absolutely beautiful and moving, I feel like a child in some ways, maybe because it feels so new to me... yet I have a great feeling that I have known these things deep in my past or all along some way..
Each lesson held new gems and insights which has allowed a depth to grow over time in me. My entire practice is more joy-filled. The deeper integration of the teachings feels natural and connected to me. I had felt isolated for a very long time in my study and practice.. There had been shadows and wounds that I now see in a new light. I appreciate how you answer questions with ease, humor and honesty.
I began receiving Jyotisha [vedic astrology tutelage] in 2005 in India with my husband Michael. I continued to receive teachings & private study with Hart deFouw from 2006-2011. My love of storytelling began in childhood, being raised in a household of performing artists. Listening to my gurus and reading the stories of India to my children further awakened this love for stories. Having my mind cultured with the vedic teachings for over 20 years and thousands of hours of formal study, the meanings of stories are often now revealed in quiet reflection. Weaving my love of Jyotisha, Āyurveda, Yoga and Storytelling together in the Nectar of Time is my devotional offering that I hope honors my gurus and delights, guides & supports you in the right ways.
