Dr. Shailla Vaidya

As a former ER and Family Doctor, I have personal experience with burnout and chronic illness.

My healing journey led me back to my roots to rediscover the wisdom of my ancestors.

Now, I share that knowledge to guide you on your healing journey.

Yoga is the process of steadying the mind, through the body, via the breath.

Burnout Recovery

Want Dr. Vaidya to speak at your event?

Dr. Vaidya is a dynamic speaker who will engage your conference attendees on personal well-being. 

Dr.Vaidya lives and teaches in the traditional lands of the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island, now known as Canada.

She is grateful and acknowledges that, while in Toronto,  she lives and works on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. This land is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. It is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.

She is also grateful to live and work from Mi’kma’ki, the traditional (or ancestral) territory of the Mi’kmaq people. This land is covered by the Peace and Friendship Treaty.

We are all treaty people, and Dr. Vaidya is committed to fulfilling the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
