Teaching children at Kids Yoga Camp how to gain mastery over mind and body with Yoga

About
Amita Jain

Much of the ancient knowledge and practice of Yoga has been lost in our world today. My mission with Vedic Yoga is to spread the authentic teachings of Raja Yoga helping people find optimal health, a calm mind free of anxieties, and a way to be centered in a space of silent awareness.

About the Founder

Amita Jain is a Doctor of Ayurvedic Medicine, a certified Hatha Yoga teacher,  and certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.

After completing an undergraduate degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Virginia (1996), Amita pursued intense studies in Ayurveda and Yoga. She traveled to south India in 1998, where she was divinely led to SVYASA Yoga Research Institute (Vivekananda Kendra) in Bangalore, India.  There she trained under the guidance of world-renowned yoga guru Dr. H.R. Nagendra (GuruJi) and Dr. Nagarathna and earned her Hatha Yoga Teacher certification.  GuruJi is the personal yoga consultant to the Prime Minister of India and is perhaps the most authentic living yoga guru in the world today.

 

Following her studies in natural healing, she worked in the IT industry at companies such as Ernst & Young, Deloitte, and Intelsat in Washington DC and Wall Street firm Morgan Stanley in NYC.  Alongside her full-time IT work, Amita taught traditional Hatha Yoga on a volunteer basis in several places including 10 years in the DC metro area for public and private institutions, 4 years teaching in New York City, 3 years working with patients at National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, teaching and presenting at many conferences, and helping people heal from chronic illness with private therapy-based yoga, meditation and hypnotherapy.
 

In 2006, along with her husband, she operated Classic Homes of Maryland as co-owner and Vice President.  Alongside being a business owner, Amita continued to teach yoga with a focus on helping people with chronic illness.  In 2017, she felt a divine calling to give up her job and devote herself full-time to helping others on a voluntary basis.  She opened Vedic Health Inc as a nonprofit organization dedicated to yoga and Ayurveda education. 

Amita is Doctor of Ayurveda from Sai Ayurvedic College, where she now teaches as adjunct Professor, and has had extensive panchakarma and clinical training at Swasthyam Ayurvedic Hospital in Kannur, Kerala.  She operates an Ayurvedic clinic in Rockville, MD where she sees all kinds of people with chronic illness such as digestive issues, auto-immune disorders, skin problems, pain affliction, psychosomatic illness such as depression, anxiety, addiction, ADD, and more.   Amita opened Vedic Health Inc as a nonprofit to provide affordable alternative health care to all those who seek a natural solution to living a healthier, happier life.  She incorporates both yoga and Ayurveda as part of her healing therapies and has seen a high success rate in helping people recover with natural and alternative medicine.

Vedic Health runs with a few dedicated volunteer staff who help make our services possible.
