Ismat Nathani (Dhala), as the Director and Founder of Centre for Ayurveda & Indian Systems of Healing (CAISH), her contribution to the Canadian community has been remarkable. Her passion for Ayurveda, Yoga and natural medicine has motivated her to bring Indian Medicine to the forefront of the Canadian Natural Health Industry. She leads the team of highly qualified Ayurvedic doctors, Yoga practitioners & philosophers and teachers at CAISH.
Ismat’s vision of starting an educational institute for Traditional East Indian Medicine as whole stemmed out from the need of preserving and presenting this form of knowledge in its most authentic and un-segmented form. The practice of Traditional East Indian Medicine is so much a part of the Indian culture and heritage that the quest of its authenticity and presentation in a particular fashion is not needed. However, outside India this is definitely a challenge rather important to practice & preach in a way that we do not lose the essence of such an ancient system of healing.
