MY HEALTHY: SHRANKHLA HOLECEK

An Ayurvedic expert and entrepreneur on her wellness must-haves

Even though Shrankhla Holecek has been a lifelong yogi and natural medicine practitioner, she isn’t immune to the mental stresses and physical strains of 21st-century life. After earning her MBA, she spent several high-pressure years as a management consultant in Los Angeles. She soon noticed that the professional wear-and-tear was taking a toll on her appearance and well-being. She tried a bevy of skincare products with little success, so she decided to create Uma, a line of Ayurvedic organic beauty and wellness products that celebrate the Indian rituals of her childhood.

Here, her current Uma favorites, including a candle made in collaboration with Equinox, plus the daily essentials that help her balance a hectic work and travel schedule.
