About Salila

Call me

I have lived and traveled almost everywhere in India and the Western Hemisphere.

I have one foot firmly planted in Kerala and the other in California.

Pronounced aah-yur-gah-mah-yah…

My Ayurveda wellness concierge developed, as many good things, from both family and suffering.

My family lineage is steeped in the tradition of Ayurveda. The grandmothers pass down the traditions, which I often scoffed at in my childhood search for a more Western life.

However, Ayurveda was in my bones, and would not abandon me.

Although I have been successful and joyful in the Western lifestyle, I reached a point in my life where my health and my heart were missing something.

Mother urged me to return to the source – Ayurveda and Yoga. I did not question her, and it was there that I found my healing.

After my profound and powerful reconnection and transformation, I committed myself to studying these Vedic healing modalities and bringing Ayurveda to the world I knew.

In the past years I have naturally grown into an Ayurveda educator with a distinct perspective, an Ayurveda diet and lifestyle practitioner and a 500 hour Yoga teacher teaching Himalayan Kundalini Yoga from Rishikesh, India and Ananda Yoga as developed by Paramahansa Yogananda of SRF.

It is a joy to refer you for an unforgettable Ayurveda Panchakarma retreat experience in India.

I invite you to reach out through my trip inquiry here if you wish to heal with the wonderful network of wellness-minded retreats in India who offer various flavors of authentic Panchakarma.

My blend of Kundalini and Hatha Yoga guides the practitioner to find strength and surrender.

For my work in promoting Yoga and Ayurveda, I have spoken at TEDx, have been recognised as an ambassador by AYUSH, India’s health ministry and Kerala Tourism.

I have been featured by TEDx, Washington Post, Healthline, Mind Body Green and Arianna Huffington’s Authority Magazine, to name a few.

I know and love people of all shapes, sizes, temperaments and orientations. I am intuitive, can sometimes read a good mind and nothing makes me purr like a meaningful conversation. I speak, think, and dream in English, Hindi, and Malayalam.

I look forward to getting to know you,




“I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredible work you do on Ayurveda. Your insightful posts and valuable information have transformed the way I’ve been looking at my food, my body and life. I feel incredibly lucky to have come across you and to have learned so much from you!”
