#1 Amrita Kaur (@amritaoflife)
If you’re new to the world of Ayurveda, Amrita Kaur’s Instagram is your entry door to the vast Universe of ancient wellness! A Radio Jockey turned a full-time Food Content Creator & Ayurvedic Chef, Amrita’s profile is a hub of recipes to exotic (yet simple) foods and videos on how to inculcate Ayurvedic habits in today’s fast-paced life.

#2 Nidhi Pandya (@my_ayurvedic_life)
Nidhi Pandya is a 3rd Generation Ayurveda Practitioner & Lifestyle Consultant and Educator. She grew up in a family that encouraged Ayurvedic lifestyle which is what led her to pursue Ayurveda professionally. Her IG is full of amazing tips that require little to no effort!
“I work hard to spread the message of Ayurveda because it is the only real science I know. It understands the principles of the Universe and how they apply to the human body in a way that no other science can. However, Ayurveda today has lost its essence. It has become more about prescription of herbs and dogmatic practices. I want to bring back the original principle of this universal and timeless science.”
Nidhi’s favourite wellness IG account is @the.holistic.psychologist, as she believes that wellness begins in the mind first. And Dr. Nicole LePera provides simple tools and insights into how one can explore their mind and rise above it.
#3 Dr. Aiswarya Santhosh (@ayurvedic_healing)
Dr. Aiswarya Santhosh is a student of Ayurveda from Kerala. After joining college, she realized that some of the practices mentioned in Dincharya & Ritucharya of Ashtanga Hrdaya were practiced in her home which encouraged her to take a deeper interest in the Ayurvedic philosophy!
“Ayurveda is not just my stream of education but also my lifestyle! I believe that by routinely following the simplest and the most basic of Ayurvedic habits can change our whole lives. We will not only be able to prevent ailments but also maintain swasthya (good health)!”

Naina Bajaria is a professional Ayurvedic Consultant who is fuelled by nature, art, and positive vibes! On her IG, you can find her sharing informative content about ancient wellness and its relevance in the contemporary world! When asked about what keeps her motivated, she says:
“Because I see a need and Ayurveda fulfils that need. People have been accustomed to a limited view on health and wellbeing and it is time it expanded and opened up! Mainly it is the unnecessary suffering of others and spreading some higher truth on what life is according to Vedas that encourages me the most to create a dialogue.”
Her favorite IG account is @parogoodearth, mostly because of all the positivity they have to offer and the lovely articles they share!
#5 Dr. Dixa Bhavsar (@drdixa_healingsouls)

“I want everybody, around me and far across, to know about Ayurveda. For the past couple of decades, people have been developing wrong notions of it. All I want for people is to understand how Ayurveda actually functions. And all the magical ways in which it can improve our mental health, boost immunity, treat allergies and a lot more!”
Dixa’s favorite wellness Instagrammer is @luke_coutinho. She adores his motto of eating smart, breathing deep, moving more, and sleeping right!
