“My affair with Ayurveda and Yoga started early in my childhood. It fascinated me how simple changes in our habits and routines made such a deep impact on how we felt, behaved, and thought. This motivated me to gain a deeper understanding of what I thought of as the wonderful Science of Life, more commonly known as Ayurveda. Where I grew up, the ancient science of Ayurveda was a part of life and indeed, in our culture, elders in the family routinely quote do’s and don’ts from this ancient text.
What draws me to Ayurveda is how it places equal emphasis on both prevention and cure and is focused on the holistic wellbeing of a person, attempting to solve and correct “everything” that is out of balance in the system. Later in life, I came to learn that Ayurveda and Yoga were two sides of a coin that cannot be separated or divided. I now strongly believe that yoga is the relationship between body, mind, and breath, which helps bring harmony to body and peace to mind, eventually setting us on the path to finding true joy in life. And that is what I love about teaching Yoga.”

“I contacted Dr.Swapna Shah as last resort after not being able to adjust to various medications prescribed by Gastroenterologist for my severe acid reflux.
With very strict diet suggested by Dr. Swapna Shah for first 2 months and with some ayurvedic powder I saw significant improvement.
Dr. Swapna is very knowledgeable and made me understand what food is good for me, the right time to eat certain food and avoiding certain food which helped me eliminate the issue of acid reflux almost completely.
Its about 2 years now and I continue to experience overall better health with her advise and guidance.

Be it improving digestion, weight gain, cough, cold, ear infections or even eczema, Dr Swapna helped me cure my baby by using things in the kitchen pantry. Swapna’s knowledge about any food items and their properties is just phenomenal. She’s a wealth of knowledge and truly a coach and companion to healthy living. She’s pragmatic in her diagnosis and so accurate. It is only because of her I learned so much about how our body works with food and the simple actions you can take so your body becomes a friend with what you eat! And most importantly you can see the results of this in just a few weeks! Moving on from my daughter, Dr Swapna has also helped me manage my blood sugars better, improve digestion and become healthier in general. We have even done sprint sessions of weight loss and diet to get ready for a family wedding!
