Nishita Shah, CAP, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT

Ayurvedic Practitioner and AyurPrana Yoga and Ayurveda Instructor

Nishita’s first foray into Ayurveda and Yoga began at a young age. Being raised in a traditional Indian household in the middle of the deep South, she was always trying to find a balance and connection between Eastern and Western cultures. Nishita received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham; what she considers to be the true beginning of the path she was about to embark on. After college, her curiosity deepened for these traditional Vedic sciences. She was blessed with the opportunity to study under Vasant Lad, MASc at The Ayurvedic Institute where she completed her formal studies in Ayurveda and Yoga.

Under the tutelage of Vasant Lad, Nishita became both an Ayurvedic Practitioner and an enthusiastic Ayuryoga Instructor. Throughout her career, including during the time she spent in her own private practice prior to joining our team, Nishita’s work has been fueled by a devotion to healing through nutrition and yoga. If you don't see her teaching at AI or AYC or practicing in our clinic, you can probably find her in the kitchen—experimenting and creating the latest recipes for her loved ones.
