Supportive Spaces for Healthier Living:

The Science of Vastu Shastra

April 24 - May 17, 11:30am-12:30pm ET
A series of 6 sessions
with Mitesh Raichada and Devang Shah

Explore the ancient Vedic science of architecture, design, layout, and space arrangement - called Vastu Shastra - to improve the harmony of your dwelling and align your spaces with your personal goals.

Everything is kept within a container. For us, the abode is our container, the place where we keep ourselves. This container, if aligned with the energy of the natural world and to your personal goals, can support you in all your endeavors and help usher harmony into your space.

Vastu principles are not just a set of rules to be applied to space and design, but rather they are insights into how energy flows through our dwellings and communal spaces. With this knowledge we can make decisions that align our spaces with the flow of nature, encouraging harmony and prana (life force) to flourish within and around us.

In this immersion we will offer insights into reading the Vastu of your room, your home, or your workplace. This unique science will enable you to extract information that can offer meaningful insights into the current condition of yourself, your family, or a group of people related to their habitat. This knowledge can be used to improve the experience of those living or working in a space by understanding the forces and energy at play in geography, color, and design.

At the end of this immersion you will be comfortable with the underlying concepts of Vastu, and will be equipped to begin improving the flow and function of your own spaces for the benefit of yourself and those around you.

Topics we will cover in this immersion

Join Ayurvedic coaches Mitesh Raichada, CAP, AyurPrana Founder and Senior Faculty at The Ayurvedic Institute, and Devang Shah, AyurPrana Founder and scholar, for a 5 week immersion that will explore the principles of Vastu Shastra with practical insights so that you can begin to harmonize and optimize the energy of your home and workplace.

In this 6 lesson live immersion you will be introduced to the ancient Vedic science of Vastu, with practical insights and suggestions you can bring into your spaces to begin working with the flow of energy and prana for the benefit of yourself, your family, or your clients.

Lesson 1: What is Vastu Shastra?

In this first class we will look at how to design a space with a purpose. We will do this by discussing how Vastu works with other healing sciences - like Ayurveda. We will also look at how we can align our spaces with nature - we will dive into:

  • The flow of prana (life force)
  • The path of the sun
  • The magnetic poles and orientation to them

Lesson 2: What is the Vastu Purusha and how does the alignment relate to a space?

In this class we will explore the Navapada Chakra - breaking this design philosophy down into its 9 parts. Coming to understand how the planets, use of colors, and the symbolism of deities can align to directions and locations to either restrict or enhance the follow of energy in a space with specific outcomes.

Lesson 3: Focus on Vastu for dwellings

This lesson will dive into more of the practical side of understanding Vastu philosophy in regards to regarding:

  • Area and location
  • Site selection
  • House selection
  • Room orientation
  • Decor

Lesson 4: Vastu for dwellings Continued…

We will build in the previous class, going beyond the mere physical layout and orientation of space to understand the importance of shapes - the concept of missing corners. How to approach the symmetry, flow and movement of energy through a space and dive even deeper into the power and potential of color

Lesson 5: Taking Vastu into the world around us

This lesson will take the form of a practical review - where Mitesh and Devang will take you on a Vastu walk, analyzing physical spaces using the concepts from previous lessons. This will offer practical examples of Vastu at work and come to see how you can begin to reframe the way you look at the space and design around you.

Lesson 6: Putting it all together

In this final class we will round-up all the content we have covered, offer a final practical overview where you can ask questions about your spaces and begin to take Vastu beyond the class and into your daily life.

The art of organizing space for better living

Vastu informs space the organization of space so that it supports the flow of prana, or lifeforce. An optimal circulation of prana promotes positive results in our lives. Prana is the life essence and pervades all organisms, enabling body, mind and spirit to function as a unified entity and propels us on our journey through life.

Why alignment of dwelling space matters

Each of us is a small but important part of the enormously intricate universe - we are connected to everything and everything is connected to us. Improper alignment with our dwelling space and hampering the flow of prana in it, can prevent us from finding ease in life and instead can promote disease. A proper alignment and arrangement

Subtle energies with real world effects

Does your money seem to go ‘’up in smoke’’? Your kitchen could play a tremendous important role in the causative factors. Are you suffering from insomnia? The solution may be as simple as rearranging your bedroom. According to Vastu Shastra - the Vedic science of architecture - many subtle energetic forces influence the environment of our homes and workplaces. Discover how to identify and work with these energies to optimize your space to support harmony in your home and help you achieve your goals.

What does Vastu mean?

The word vastu is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘to dwell’ or ‘to exist’. It refers to a dwelling place, a home in its most basic sense, but its meaning extends beyond that and includes the earth and its inhabitants, the buildings on that earth and movable objects within them, including furniture, utilities, art, colors, and decorations.

Ancient knowledge that can support us today

Vastu, Yoga, Ayurveda, Jyotisha and similar sciences originated from the Veda’s, India’s compendium of sacred wisdom, use different means towards a unified goal: to align the individual with the universal and thereby living life in harmony with our environment. Where there is disease, nature creates a remedy. Where a space goes out of balance an antidote arises, which when we apply it with guidance from the sages through ancient scriptures, assist us towards fulfillment.

Meet The Teacher

AyurPrana Founder and Immerssion Guide

Mitesh Raichada, CAP

Mitesh’s passion for Ayurveda was first cultivated while studying to become a certified practitioner under Vasant Lad. An enthusiastic and unyielding seeker of knowledge, Mitesh studied Indian philosophy at the Tattvajnana Vidhyapeeth in India, Jyotish with Hart deFouw, holds a Reiki Level 1 certification, and has undertaken intensive clinical immersion programs with Vasant Lad in India.

These days, Mitesh is busy being the Executive Vice President of the Ayurvedic Institute, but before that, he co-founded a highly successful real estate and hospitality company. His zeal for building powerful leaders and creating mindful business cultures overflows into the classrooms he leads with compassion and insight.

When not studying, teaching, or practicing, you can find Mitesh playing his bass guitar or enjoying the limitless beauty of nature.

Devang Shah

Devang is passionate about anything that inspires the scientific and mechanical side of his brain. This life-long exploration has led to an Electrical Engineering degree from CalTech and has also called Devang to study extensively with highly regarded master’s of the Vedic Traditions, including Hart deFouw (completing both the Vastu and Jyotish trilogies under Hart’s tutelage) and Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc (having audited the ASP1 program at The Ayurvedic Institute).

Devang's appreciation of the gross and subtle mechanics of the world around him translates into many interests, including an abiding love of bicycles, coffee, cars, and Vastu Shastra - as the study of space and the flow of energy within that space.

Devang is a caring teacher, whose passion and respect for his subjects is infectious! The attention Devang brings to the minute details means that he offers insightful and lasting instruction, especially in those subjects that rely on a system of understanding, such as Vastu Shastra and Jyotish.

"That’s what I love about this science. Because with the right Vastu someone can really put their heart into their home." ~ Devang Shah
