Aum Yoga and Ayurveda Clinic
Dr Khushdil Chokshi
Khushdil had the privilege to grow up in India with parents who are passionate about the Natural laws of Ayurveda medicine and the daily practice of traditional yoga. These laws and principles were passed on to Khushdil from a very young age where she grasped the understanding and the importance of keeping a healthy body, mind and spirit for general health. When Khushdil was in her teenage years, her mother fell very ill with debilitating back pain and leg inflammation. For the purpose of medical reports, she was taken to a general practitioner who misdiagnosed her with kidney disease. The family was not satisfied with this outcome and from there she was taken to an Ayurvedic hospital where within a month she was on her way to recovery through the practices of Ayurvedic medicine. This sparked Khushdil’s interest even further and her thirst for more knowledge on the subject led her to study 6 years at university to get her Bachelor degree in Ayurveda Medicine and Surgery.
She was inspired to write her book “Yogashraya” while she was still in India teaching Yoga at DEEMED University of Engineering and running her own practice at three different locations in Gujarat, India.
By 2007 Khushdil had a vision of spreading the word about Ayurvedic medicine to the rest of the world as alternative medicine and relocated to Melbourne, Australia with her husband and son in 2011. Initially, she shared a practice with another Ayurvedic doctor to gain an understanding of the Australian culture and relate better with her new patients.
In 2014 Khushdil launched her own practice: Aum Yoga and Ayurveda Clinic
Khushdil is registered with the Australasian Association of Ayurveda as a professional practitioner. As part of her quest to enlighten the world in the ways of Ayurvedic medicine, Khushdil obtained a general certificate as trainer and assessor to teach a Diploma in Ayurveda Yoga Teaching. She has continued her journey as a writer by writing another 2 books Yoga- Ashtanga Yoga- as it is for Beginners and another on recipes whilst practicing and teaching Yoga, doing Ayurvedic Consultation and treatments.
For the last 20 years, Khushdil has been helping thousands of people overcome a range of physical, mental and emotional health issues. Khushdil found her passion to be in cooking for healthy living and Yoga where she now runs regular workshops and Retreats on Healthy lifestyle management.
