About Sita Severson
Sita Severson is an Ayurveda counselor and Yoga Therapist in Chula Vista, San Diego California. She has dedicated her life to helping others recover from disease such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, as well as spiritual crisis through her loving approach. Sita has helped countless clients navigate some of the toughest of life’s obstacles. She works one on one, in groups and speaking and teaching format as well.
Formerly known as Katy Bray, Sita began her career in the wellness industry in 2000 as an Esthetician where she worked in day spas, as well as, being a top freelance makeup artist, working on film sets to runway shows to bridal events around Baltimore, Md. She started learning so much that she was hired by a floundering day spa to help them grow and thrive, which she did. This is when she fell in love with the wellness industry as a business.
By 2005 Sita Severson was ready to take her own growth and education further by studying with The Chopra Center. She had the intention of becoming an entrepreneur and to share wellness with anyone who would listen. She first became a yoga instructor, becoming certified in The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga and continued her education at Yama Therapeutics, a beacon in the Ayurvedic community in Baltimore. She went into extensive study of the Ayurvedic Lifestyle, Meditation and breathing techniques, receiving certifications in all three.
Sita is a Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Yoga Therapist, RYT 500, and YACEP.

Sita Severson started her Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coaching practice in 2007. Although she spent much of her time working one on one she was asked to teach mindfulness and yoga to the professors at Johns Hopkins University. This led to her teaching at Johns Hopkins Hospital as well, where she taught primarily in the Oncology unit to the doctors and nurses how to work with breathing and mindfulness practices to minimize the burnout they were experiencing.
In 2009, Sita Severson was asked to create curriculums around Ayurvedic Lifestyle, Yoga and meditation for the Baltimore County Department of Aging. She taught these curriculums at the 18 senior centers around the county for 3 years. During that time, she was asked back to Yama Therapeutics to develop curriculum for, and teach Ayurveda and meditation students that were going for their own certifications.
Since the establishment of her practice in 2007, Sita Severson has become a published author, a beloved teacher on The Shift Network and Wisdom from North (the Scandinavian version of The Shift Network). She has worked with thousands of individuals in spiritual counseling, Ayurveda and Yoga being a center point. Sita holds four belts in the Nia Technique, a healing dance that works with somatic experiencing. In 2020 decided it was time to deepen her studies further. She is currently getting her certifications in Yoga Therapy and as an Ayurvedic Practitioner. She has already established herself as a healer with people around the world and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, as well as, the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.
