Our guest this evening on Inner Journey with Greg Friedman, Siva Mohan comes to us with an MD (focus in psychiatry) and a Masters in Public Health, Siva brings a unique and integrative approach to ayurveda. This combined with her personal and professional studies in Vedic thought have nurtured her niche: expanding ayurveda with psychospiritual healing.

Siva teaches at festivals and conferences (e.g. Bhaktifest, Bali Spirit, Moksha, Assn. of Ayurvedic Physicians); develops curriculum and teaches for YogaWorks; and teaches at the nation’s premier Yoga Studies Masters Program at Loyola Marymount University in LA. Siva is the founder/director of LA’s annual celebration of the Vedic arts, Veda MeLA.

Siva Mohan is a woman who figured out how to be on her path, how to prioritize her internal state of harmony, and take back control of her life experience.

She changed her career, learned how to feel supported, cleaned up my relationships, cut out drama, and revolutionized how she showed up for herself. Along the way, she remedied IBS, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, nodulocystic acne, eczema, and chronic sinusitis. Of course it was all related, and being the science dork obsessed with the mind-body connection that she is, she immersed myself in learning how. Ayurveda, and yoga were vehicles for my healing and spiritual growth, and these are the tools I share with you.

Ayurveda can be complex. It is. It’s also simultaneously basic (non dualism at it’s best).  Her goal is to make it simple, and enjoyable, because then, you’re more likely to use it.

Life doesn’t always feel easy, and that ayurveda can be really effective in helping us feel good even when practiced imperfectly.
