  1. Arun,

    I’m a student at LMU in the Yoga Therapy program and would like to schedule some time with you within the next month. My issue is that I have a demanding job in Orange County, which makes it challenging to get up to you during the work week. Do you provide appointments on weekends? If not, what is the earliest time you provide appointments in the morning?

    I look forward to your response and to have my first session with you.



  2. My friend Kalon Wright sees you. Can you tell me if you come to Alaska or can recommend someone here in Anchorage? Seattle would also be possible at times. Thank you

  3. I am in the Yoga Therapy Program at LMU and we had a weekend of Ayurveda with you Arun and it was so informative! Thank you for sharing this wisdom to me so I can integrate it into my own life to live in balance with my dosha, the seasons and the earth. Namaste.

  4. Dear Mr. Arun Deva,

    I am writing to you because I am still remember you from your lecture in the Yoga Therapy Program at LMU last year.
    Right now I am a third-year student at LMU and in the process to research and write my final paper. My topic is “Menopause and Yoga Therapy”. When I found your article “Integrating Yoga and Ayurveda for Therapeutic Purposes”, I realized that you might be able to help me. It is my goal to mention Ayurveda as part of yoga therapy for women with menopausal symptoms. Unfortunately, I did not find many substantial resources on line. Rather new to the topic, I could not find really helpful literature either.
    Is there a possibility that you might be able to provide me with an article or a recommendation of a book addressing this part of life?

    I thank you in advance for your response and I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Hello Brigitta,
      Thank you for writing. There is very little literature, at least on the surface, for using yogic tools for therapeutic purposes in the ancient Ayurvedic texts. However, in digging, much can be understood between the lines.
      Meanwhile, these are the best two books I can recommend on the therapeutic aspects of yoga based on ancient writings:
      Therapeutic References in Traditional Yoga Texts. Edited by Dr. Manmath M. Gharote/2015. The Lonavla Yoga Institute.
      Encyclopedia of Traditional Asanas. Editor in Chief: Dr. Manohar Laxman Gharote/Lonavla Yoga Institute.
      You can write to Dr. Manmath Gharote here: The Lonavla Yoga Institute/
      Additionally, you may wish to look in the Yoga Yajnyavalka which has the closest to direct references to women’s health and yoga’asana and specifically in pre, natal and post. It is a translation by the eminent A.G. Mohan and published by Svastha Yoga.
      Best wishes,
      Arun Deva

      • Ooops, I rushed in there…it was menopause you were referring to, not pregnancy!
        Even less literature. There is a lot of protocol for Ayurvedic approaches to this stage of life but not any specific yoga references. At least that I am aware of.

  5. Hello Dr. Arun,

    I hope you’re well. I was wondering if you ever visit India and see patients here. I’ve been struggling with getting a diagnosis and correct treatment for an apparent thyroid condition. I just don’t feel right and I’ve been looking for someone who can tell me what’s wrong with me and how I can correct that. I’d love to see you if you are visiting India.
