Extended Bio

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 behavior.

For Dr. Mohan, consulting in international public health seemed to revolve around a central question: How do we encourage certain health behavior 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. 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.

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.
