Yogi and mystic Mas Vidal has become an influential teacher, speaker, and author of Ayurvedic, yogic, and Vedic philosophy. His diverse background includes athletics, therapeutics, science, and ecology — all of which he integrates into a dynamic synthesis that has made him an innovative voice in the fields of Integral Yoga, Ayurveda, and Indic culture.
Mas offers unique certification and educational programs and maintains an active international counseling practice that embraces Vedanta, Ayurveda, and Vedic Astrology. His mission of inspiring others to live an evolutionary life is influenced by the teachings and lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda of Self-Realization Fellowship, and Swami Jyotirmayananda, the last direct disciple of Swami Sivananda. In 2014, Mas appeared in the film Awake: The Life Of Yogananda.
Mas is the author of Sun, Moon, and Earth: The Sacred Relationship of Yoga & Ayurveda… and The Evolution Revolution: Yoga, Ayurveda, and the Rise of the Soft Power Culture. He is the director and founder of Dancing Shiva, an educational organization based in San Diego and Miami that promotes health, wellness, and societal reform by means of embracing universal spirituality, individuality, and a natural lifestyle.
Through medical astrology (Jyotish), his consultations with clients place a strong emphasis on connecting the mental-emotional causes of imbalance to the doshas and developing practical lifestyle guidelines to enable the individual to restore balance and perfect health. In each consultation, his recommendations include lifestyle suggestions related to diet, herbs, an astrological presentation of the birth chart, exercises, therapies, or other modalities that may be beneficial to the client’s specific issues.
