We find our joy in lifting you up; in reminding you of your highest potential and deepest purpose in life.
We were both raised on the path of Bhakti Yoga, with Ayurveda's lifestyle principles as the background of our lifestyle. In our teenage years (yes, we've known each other since we were 10!), as most kids do, we wanted to explore what else the world had to offer, and thus dove deeply into the world of sensory pleasures through partying, drugs, and the quest for happiness outside of ourselves.
Full circle, in our early twenties, life (and our quest for real hapinness) brought us right back to our roots. I (Dhyana) had moved to New York City to open a Yoga Studio and Vira moved there to expand his thriving Ayurveda Wellness business that he started in LA. From an unexpected turn of events, we moved into an Ashram in 2012 where we re-committed to our spiritual life, inspired by our teacher, Radhanath Swami.
We experienced, first hand, the inner-fulfillment that comes from living a life of service and the profound results that come from teaching others what we've learned.
Our mission is to make the ancient teachings of yoga and Ayurveda attractive, relatable, and accessible so that they can be utilized for real transformation.
Vira is specially trained to offer Ayurveda to the western mind and body. He is a fine tuned specialist in assisting the removal of stress from one’s body, mind, and life. Trained in an ancient master disciple lineage from India, Vira has become an expert practitioner in one of the world’s most powerful stress eliminating sciences, Marma Therapy.
Raised on the path of Bhakti Yoga, Dhyana has been visiting India since her childhood.
Her father opened the Ayurveda Health Retreat when she was 12 years old, and at the age of 15 she was trained in the science of Ayurvedic body treatments. Seeing patient after patient experiencing deep transformation through the simple lifestyle practices of Yoga & Ayurveda, her faith in the sciences deepened and she wanted to learn more.
She received her degree in Yoga & Psychology at Naropa University, and in 2011, along with her sister and father, founded YogaVeda; the Yoga Alliance certified school for uniting the philosophy, lifestyle, and sciences of Yoga & Ayurveda.
She is an Ayurvedic Health Counselor and the Director of Ayurveda at the Bhakti Center in New York City. She leads yoga teacher trainings, Ayurveda trainings, retreats, pilgrimages and workshops internationally.
