YogiApproved: What inspired you to write books about Ayurveda?

Sahara: My own health problems! When I was teaching health in the slums of India, I got very sick. And it was then that I discovered Ayurveda, which radically changed the course of my life. It healed my mind, body, and spirit and I decided to write a book on the subject – though I had never met an author.

I spent two years living in India studying Ayurveda and wrote my first book on the subject. Several years later, I was hired by Penguin to write The Idiot’s Guide to Ayurveda, which became the #1 best-selling Ayurveda book worldwide.

And, now, I just released my new book Eat Feel Fresh: A Contemporary Plant-Based Ayurvedic Cookbook, with the recipes that saved my life. My dharma is modernizing this ancient healing science so it can help people the way it has helped me.
