Neerja Ahuja Interview

Before becoming an Ayurveda practitioner, Neerja Ahuja was a mathematician and a computer program specialist. She took a time off from work to take good care of her children. As a young mom, she was told by others that she will be running to the doctors most of the time as little children usually get sick. However, Neerja always believes in prevention, healthy lifestyle, and living well.

Neerja started looking for seminars about health and wellness that she can attend, but to no avail, there were no events around the community promoting natural wellness. That’s when she decided to organize a seminar that will benefit her and others. Fortunately, Dr Rajen Cooppan just arrived from South Africa and became Neerja’s mentor.

“It’s a divine direction and passion” that’s how Neerja described her Ayurveda journey. From the first one day seminar she organized, it became a 1 month course, and then 1 year, until finally, Neerja completed her full four year course on Ayurveda. From this journey filled with passion to help others keep their health – Ayurveda Awareness Center in Australia was born and is successfully operating for almost two decades now!

The Ayurveda Awareness Center (AAC) is the first and recognized health modality in Australia. AAC is also the first clinic in WA to be an RTO (Registered Training Organization), teaching nationally recognized Ayurveda courses, with an internationally renowned mentor and teacher, Dr Rajen Cooppan. Neerja’s intimate connection with the Indian culture and her personal interest in holistic healing, Indian herbs and cuisine gives a unique authenticity to her teaching, practice, and presentations on Ayurveda. Her work as a course facilitator for nationally recognized courses, seminars, workshops, retreats and  consultations with thousands of clients, has deepened her understanding of human psychology and why and how people get sick and how they can truly heal.
