Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda

The word Svastha in Sanskrit refers to the state of complete health and balance - literally: to "stay as one's own self". The Svastha organisation was originated in Chennai, India by A.G. Mohan and his wife, Indra Mohan, in 1989.

A.G. Mohan was a personal student of the legendary 20th century yogi, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, from 1971 until the master's demise in 1989, and co-founder of the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in 1976.

Indra Mohan is one of the few people to have been awarded a post-graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya. She is known for her serene demeanour and is a source of support to many yoga students and teachers around the world.

Svastha Yoga Therapy Program:
Building on the teachings of Krishnamacharya


This international yoga therapy training program is delivered by Dr. Ganesh Mohan, son of A.G. Mohan and Indra Mohan. He was trained from childhood in yoga and other related traditional studies.

Ganesh is a doctor, trained in both modern medicine and Ayurveda, and is co-author with his father of several books.

This course takes an holistic perspective, combining the most effective aspects of traditional yoga with a wide spectrum of modern medicine (general medicine, rehabilitation, psychiatry); complementary medicine (movement therapies, myofascial work, herbs); and Ayurveda wherever relevant.

The highlight of the Svastha Yoga approach is clarity and usability

Detailed information on the contents of the yoga therapy program can be found here.

Paula completed the Svastha Yoga Therapy 300 hour program with Dr. Ganesh Mohan in 2019.
The knowledge gained has proved invaluable not only for private sessions but also in her regular group classes. Paula occasionally holds specific topic workshops enabling principles to be explained and practised, so they can be incorporated into daily life activities. This is practical take-home knowledge so that each person can create substantial transformation in improved health, well-being and self-care.
