'If you haven't heard of Ayurveda you soon will. India's oldest holistic system is a great counterbalance to our stressed-out, polluted lives - Bharti's fascination with Eastern philosophies began 20 years ago and naturally led her towards Ayurveda.' Beverley d'Silva, THE SUNDAY TIMES 'Heady mix of hands-on therapy, Indian mysticism and homespun common sense.' THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Bharti's knowledge and practise of health and beauty is simply excellent' Newby Hands, HARPERS & QUEEN 'What I like about Bharti's approach to beauty is that it is spiritual as well as practical.' CHER
