Anjali Deva is an NAMA-certified Ayurvedic practitioner and Yoga teacher in Los Angeles. She has been greatly fortunate to have been introduced to Ayurveda and Yoga at a young age by her father, Arun Deva. Her familial lineage is rich with the desire to preserve and maintain this healing art. She has since gone on to train with Kerala Ayurveda Academy, Loyola Marymount’s Yoga and the Healing Sciences Program, and with teachers both in the United States and in India. Her journey began in the kitchen with a desire to understand how the food we eat influences our bodies and minds. This passion has now grown to include helping people find their inner wisdom, clarity and health through the wisdom of Ayurveda. Through self-care practices she hopes to help people find their inner harmony and resilience.
Anjali is the Director of Culture at La Maida Institute. La Maida Institute’s mission is to offer a new way of approaching healthcare; where the human experience, communal support, and spiritual development are central to the healing process. Rooted in both ancient wisdom traditions and evidence-based practices, we are committed to delivering participatory and integrative programs that empower transformation and restore wholeness.
She works with a team at Hope Integrative Psychiatry that understands the importance of whole well-being and understands that the rise in mental health diagnoses is in reaction to a society that is needing healing. Working closely with psychiatrist, Dr. Omid Naim, has allowed Anjali to practice Ayurveda in a comprehensive manner tailoring to current day needs.
