Viveda started in April 2012 in Ottawa when Sebastian Peralta came back from his Ayurvedic training in India. When he returned there was an overwhelming amount of interest from the community to recieve, learn and expereience Ayurveda here in Ottawa. While yoga is very popular here Ayurveda is still becoming known, we are thrilled and excited to be part of that process.
Although there was no name then, Viveda started by giving the basic Ayurvedic treatments to the few people that knew of Ayurveda. The first treatments were given in a ‘shed’, a small 5x5ft insulated room in a beautiful backyard in old ottawa east.
Since then it has moved twice and it has grown into a larger home business with more and more people learning, hearing and recognizing Ayurveda. There has been a staggering amount of growth for people interested in Ayurveda since then. More and more people know what it is and where it comes from, and those that dont have probably heard the name at least once in passing. This is mostly because people are beginning to look for natural products and knowledge.
