The word Svastha in Sanskrit refers to the state of complete well-being and balance.
Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda was founded by A. G. Mohan and Indra Mohan. A. G. Mohan was a personal disciple of the legendary yogi Sri T. Krishnamacharya from 1971-1989. His wife, Indra, received a post-graduate diploma in yoga from Krishnamacharya.
The principle of Svastha Yoga is practicing yoga in the way that leads each individual to well-being. It is not about a particular style of practice. We integrate the ancient wisdom of yoga and ayurveda with modern science and medicine to offer accessible, insightful, and sustainable skills for your wellbeing and self-care.
In Singapore, the following Svastha Yoga & Ayurveda programs are conducted directly by Nitya Mohan and Dr. Ganesh Mohan.
