Shanti Ayurveda Center was established in 2013 and registered as a corporation under the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to provide Ayurveda panchakarma treatments for healing and well-being. Because of the demand for learning preventive healthcare, particularly on the Ayurveda lifestyle knowledge, Shanti Institute of Ayurveda (SIA) was founded in 2016, and registered with the SEC as an educational, non-profit organization.

The vision of SIA is to become a world-class Ayurveda education, training, and research institute for building healthier and happier society where people live together in peace and harmony. The mission is to bring Ayurveda, India’s millennia-old system of healthcare to every household in the world. The Philippine Institute of Traditional and Alternative Health Care (PITAHC) has approved three Ayurveda Lifestyle Certification Courses: Ayurveda Lifestyle Practitioner Certification Course, Ayurveda Lifestyle Teacher Certification Course, and Ayurveda Therapist Certification Course that were designed by SIA.
