Chivito is a certified Ayurveda Practitioner and Pancha Karma Specialist (Ayurveda treatment and detoxification therapies). He has been studying and practicing Ayurveda since 2005.
Chivito has both traditional academic training and genuine immersion--training and interning with Ayurveda Dr.’s as well as with Self-Realized Baba’s of India.
“Every great teacher I’ve encountered has been a Master of Ayurveda. There was no distinction between the path of enlightenment and Ayurveda, there couldn’t be one without the other.” Chivito
Academically, Chivito is a graduate of the Kerala Ayurveda Academy and certified through the Chakrapani Ayurveda Clinic and Research Center in Jaipur India. He has interned at Kerala Ayurveda Seattle and India clinics, at the Pancha Karma center at Ammritapuri, and with lead physician and founder of Chakrapani Ayurveda Dr. Kotecha.
Chivito considers his real training however, to have come from specific Baba’s (holymen) who took Chivito under their wing. They infused Ayurveda and Yoga within one system of awareness that translated into Kashmiri Saivism. Though the medicinal branch of Ayurveda resides within the Sankhya Vedas, Saivism provided the remaining pieces that united everything into a monistic philosophy of awareness.
Combined with the technical theoretical training of Ayurveda, Chivito was initiated into various esoteric Yogas such as Swara Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, and Kriya Yoga.
Chivito is also a Licensed Massage Therapist with over 1000hrs of Massage training including Swedish, Thai Massage, Abhyanga, Shirodhara, and Marma Point Therapy.
He has completed 500hrs of Yoga Teacher Training in both India and U.S. and training in Vipassana.
He has operated two clinic’s called Inner Silence Studio in Tacoma WA and Portland OR, is Co-creator of the Yoga Teacher’s training program in India at Hari Om Ashram where he serves as Director and Ayurveda Instructor during the season.
When not serving in India, Chivito is traveling sharing Ayurveda and Yoga around the world.
Few go past the surface level learning. We have many weekend warrior certified people and not enough of those who dove in and fully immersed themselves.
Chivito is one who dived in. He sold everything owned and moved to India where he learned from the Masters themselves, interned with Ayurvedic Doctors in their clinics and in rural villages. He traveled and lived with the wandering holymen and mystic where he received initiations only few Westerner's receive.
You'll feel it in his presence and how he artfully guides you he sharing from a heightened awareness and not through route procedure. It's a great gift to one who can do that for you.
