The yoga of art is, through our music, through our dance and through every aspect of our life we are tuning in to the frequency of divine grace. And through our art, we become transmitters to uplift humanity and uplift the world to that divine grace.”  ~ Radhanath Swami


Pre-Shakti Fest Immersion with Siva Mohan

Revolutionary Ayurveda Pre-Intensive

May 11

Join us for this very special Shakti Fest pre-immersion as we take time to dive deeper into Ayurveda.


Catch Siva before the festival for an Intensive on Revolutionary Ayurveda. Siva will debunk the whole mainstream approach of “type-yourself-live-by-these-rules” to ayurveda. Learn how it can be an approach to building awareness of energetics, and most importantly, a way to decide on what is best for YOU at any given moment in ANY situation (from what you eat, to which asana & pranayam, to whom you date). Siva will emphasize how ayurveda can be a system of personal empowerment in both physical and emotional wellbeing AND spiritual growth. 

More about Siva Mohan…

Siva began her path to healing in neuroscience, and this sparked her interest in the mind-body connection. In Medical School and during her Public Health Masters, she focused her studies on an extension of the mind-body relationship: the effects of community, development, and culture on health behaviour.

For Dr. Mohan, consulting in international public health seemed to revolve around a central question: How do we encourage certain health behaviour in different settings around the world?“I was most interested in the process of genuinely taking people’s lives into consideration when approaching health. I believe our lifestyles and habits determine our health, and this along with my cultural heritage drew me to ayurveda.”

Several years later, Siva shares the wisdom of ayurveda in a supportive, individualized and holistic way.

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. Bhakti Fest, 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 celebration of the Vedic arts, Veda MeLA.

As a speaker, Siva’s quite versatile. Her focus tends to be on the integrative possibilities and approaches with ayurveda & Western medicine, and psychospiritual aspects of healing.

Dr. Mohan’s perspectives have been recently featured in Marie Claire, Well + Good, LAYoga, Real Simple, First for Women magazines, amongst others. Her private practice has been featured on KCLA TV, Veria TV, and she is a featured expert on several online wellness portals (LivingHealthy, BanyanBotanicals, Curejoy, Ayurvedanextdoor,, Bodhi Tree).
