Pravina Narayan

Pravina Narayan


A creative visionary, businesswoman, and holistic healer, Pravina Narayan is the Founder of Vaidya Ayurveda and has an aspiration to leave the world a little better than she found it. As someone who has a passion for primitive wisdom and Mother Earth's natural gifts, Pravina's wish is to live a life with purpose and support others' wellbeing.

Pravina was born into an Indian family and culture and absorbed the Ayurveda lifestyles from an early age. Due to being exposed to Ayurveda's ancient remedies since birth, this became firmly rooted within her and has helped shape who she is today. But before Pravina decided to forefront this to the rest of the world by launching Vaidya Ayurveda with her Co-founders, she began her career journey working in a law firm in Northern California. Soon after, her creative side started screaming out; she was craving much more than a conventional life. Though Pravina worked with excellent attorneys at the firm, she quit at the age of 23 to dive into the world of music and entrepreneurship.

For the last 20 years, Pravina followed her passion, sharpening her vocal skills, performing, and recording in San Francisco and Los Angeles area. During this time, she had opportunities to study with talented musicians in the music industry such as Horus Jack Tolson of the International School for the Performing Arts, internationally acclaimed vocal instructor/maestro Edward Sayegh, American Gospel Singer Willie Norwood, and Multi-Platinum Music Producer and entrepreneur, Donald XL Robertson. In addition, Pravina was ardent about branching out herself even more; she jumped into real estate and entrenched herself learning hardcore on how to build wealth in a non-traditional way. During the course of her real estate venture, Pravina made multiple real estate investment transactions using her skilled research and studies in that field. This strive also became the catalyst for her to expand into the financial market, actively observing and analyzing varying day trading stocks and indexes' erratic patterns.

While taking on different avenues of adventures, Pravina grew an impressive inventory of business relations, including Co-owning of National Graphics and being both the Co-owner and Creative Director for Protégé Media Group. With all of this as Pravina's background, Ayurveda and her tradition never left her mind. As time went by, her love for balancing the mind, body, and soul through ancient solutions only grew stronger in her heart. With this as her base in life right since the very beginning, Pravina knew that tapping into Ayurveda medicine with her Co-founders full force was her true calling and a perfect way to fulfill her desire to do more for others. That was how Vaidya Ayurveda LLC was born.

It is no secret that Pravina brings immense experience and ardency to the table and genuinely loves what she does. She takes great pride in helping others achieve genuine happiness and health with the support of her warm-hearted and passionate team of healers and Ph.D. Ayurveda Doctors by her side to formulate revolutionizing Ayurveda medicine for remediating numerous chronic illnesses, enhancing memory, slowing degeneration, and reducing symptoms of mental health issues. Pravina is wholeheartedly devoted to spreading this awareness across the globe to promote the entire mind and body tranquility. She and her team have already created leading, modified products, such as their Ayurvedic Immunity Tea, Digestive Tea, and their line of Divine Essential oils; Pravina is excited to let her growing community know that Vaidya Ayurveda LLC is just getting started.

During the retreat she attended me with kindness and an inclusive manner often missing in Western medicine and opened my eyes to the world of Ayurveda; its history, heritage and benefits as an approach to both wellness and healing. All of which added to the benefit I obtained from the retreat and interest I have in continuing to use Ayurveda in my life.”
