Ayurveda for yoga teachers & students

bringing Ayurveda into your life and practice

Singing Dragon Press (London, UK)



Leaders in Ayurveda, from traditional, to revolutionary, recommend this unique and relatable take on what often seems like a complex and overwhelming science.

"Siva Mohan, MD, has written an excellent, practical guide for both teacher and student, based upon Ayurvedic principals. Ayurveda gives great importance to agni (digestive fire) and constitutional balance and she has given workable, step-by-step guidelines for balancing agni and dosha to unfold perfect health: the health of the body, mind and consciousness. This book will definitely support both teacher and student on their journey to wellbeing.’"

Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician
Author of Ayurveda: Science of Self-Healing, Textbook of Ayurveda series and more

"Dr. Siva has written an intelligent, personal and highly practical book for creating a workable Ayurvedic lifestyle. She seamlessly makes this ancient and often esoteric approach to healthcare completely accessible to the modern practitioner —and in the process, allows us to move towards one of the single most important issue facing humans today - healthcare revolution. Beautifully researched and expressed by Siva’s own personal healer’s journey, this is a book I will recommend to all of the students who work in my online Ayurveda certification programs. I highly recommend Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers and Students —not least for the insights Siva offers on what it means to practice the ancient art of Ayurveda with the type of deep authenticity that true wellness requires.

Why Ayurveda for Yogis?

Because you already know that your greatest practice is off the mat.

We've tried to apply the principles of yoga to our lives: vegetarianism, 40 days of mantra, cleanses, meditations, etc.

However, with just yoga philosophy, I still didn’t know how to eat, how to handle my emotions, how to make decisions that serve my energetic state, or how to have healthy relationships.

Ayurveda gave me these skills.

Ayurveda is how I began to live my life like one big yoga practice - present, connected, and healing.

Ayurveda allows us to customize our choices in life, the way yoga allows us to customize our practice to what's needed that day.

Sometimes, I forget to use my tools, and my awareness. We all do, especially when we’re depletedAyurveda taught me this, and about my inherent cyclical nature.

It’s wisdom is like a grandmother, so accepting of who and where we are, and always willing to offer support. This unconditional approach took root within my mind, and plugged me into my intuition.

My hope with this book is for you to experience this empowerment, and magic of energetic awareness and self-healing.
