Our Story

Even though Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of healing, there was no centre in Australia that provides Ayurvedic products to people who wished to incorporate the values of this ancient science into their daily lives.

Surya Ayurveda was established by Dr. S. Ajit with a mission to provide high quality Ayurvedic products to the Australasian market.

Dr. Ajit has more than 43 years of clinical experience and is the most experienced Ayurvedic Doctor practicing in Australasia. He is also the only Ayurvedic Doctor outside India who has worked for the Government of India as an Ayurvedic Medical Officer for over 19 years. 

From this experience he has developed a deep understanding of Ayurvedic traditional formulations as well as in depth knowledge of most of the Ayurvedic companies operating in India.

With his wife, Rippan Sandhu, he developed the “Ayurda,” (www.ayurda.com), the first ayurvedic skin care range based on authentic formulations from the Vedas, the ancient texts of India. The range is being marketed in Australia New Zealand and overseas countries such as USA and Europe.

In 1999, he established the Australasian Institute of Ayurvedic Studies in Australia and New Zealand (www.aiasinstitute.com.au). As a Registered Training Organization under the Australian Skills Quality Authority it provides nationally credited courses in Ayurveda that offer the most comprehensive curriculum in the study of Ayurvedic Medicine outside India. 

He is currently CEO of the International Council of Ayurvedic Medicine Inc, an organization established to standardize and streamline the educational, teaching and regulatory standards for Ayurvedic practice in the world outside of India.
