About Dylan Smith
Dylan Smith, founder of Vital Veda, is a qualified Ayurvedic practitioner who has a holistic passion to teach patients to effortlessly integrate new habits into their daily life.
How I got into Ayurveda:
“I discovered Ayurveda while doing Panchakarma (an Ayurvedic detox and rejuvenation program) in India. While undergoing my treatment in-residence, I was reading a book and came across the vedic notion of “Dharma” – (one’s personal role in the evolution of the universe).
Just reading this chapter on Dharma was a significant turning point in my life, and my slight reluctance towards studying architecture became more certain. I wanted to contact the need of the time in a more functional and productive manner.
I had loved practising Yoga, and toyed with the idea of becoming a Yoga teacher. But then I met my current Guru (teacher). His name is Vaidya, Dr. J.R. Raju (Vaidya means Ayurvedic doctor). He is the senior doctor at his family clinic (that I was staying at) in South India. He knew my situation and simply suggested, “come study Ayurveda here. Krishna (his younger brother and the main Dr. at the clinic) will teach you. Don’t study anywhere else, just here.”
When someone that you respect and admire immensely, someone that when you are in his presence your nervous system resides in supreme contentedness and heart feels sensations, someone that you perceive as enlightened, when they make an offer as I received, it is not by chance, you most probably will listen, surrender and leap into action towards that direction with the security of their guidance an mastery.”
Studies and Qualifications:
Dylan studied with Australasia’s most experienced; Dr. Ajit (BAMS), at the Australasian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies (AIAS). After successfully graduating as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant (Certificate IV/Diploma), he opened the Vital Veda clinic in May 2014.
A few months after the clinic was up and running, he spent six months training and working at the Raju Family Clinic in South India, an internationally renowned family of Ayurvedic doctors, which revolutionised his Ayurvedic practice and increased the effectiveness and success rates of his treatments and prescriptions profoundly. Since then and until today, he continues to travel back and forth to the Raju Clinic in India for work and advanced studies.
Aimed at uncovering the root cause of ailments, Dylan owns and operates the Vital Veda clinic in Sydney, Australia, offering consultations, body treatments and detoxification programs to people of all walks of life.
He also offers Skype and phone consultations where you will be provided with an intricate yet clear diet and lifestyle plan that leads you back to the memory and awareness of your true nature for deeper self-understanding, wellness and balance. This plan guides you to be more independent and self-sufficient in balancing your physiology.
Dylan is devoted to learning, sharing and radiating this ancient knowledge for everyone to utilise and enjoy, to experience total wellness and bliss.
