She is also an ICF certified life coach and a US trained biological scientist with publications in peer-reviewed journals besides.

Dr Shetty’s journey into mind-body health began when she studied how stress suppresses the immune system during her post doctoral training at the NICHD in the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD. Her columns in the Mint were written to help increase public awareness of the connection between lifestyle choices and physical and mental health. She is passionate about sharing the research evidence that shows how healthful behaviours can protect us from disease while increasing our life span. She does this through her book, talks, and carefully curated wellbeing workshops.

Her book 99 not out! Your Guide to a long and healthy life was well reviewed in over a dozen magazines and dailies when it was published. Her writing is unique in its emphasis on the latest medical research coupled with interviews with well respected doctors and scientists. Like her writing, the talks and workshops are unique in their emphasis on research studies that unequivocally show how and why certain lifestyle habits enhance wellbeing and prevent both mental and physical disease. 

Dr. Shetty is also an ICF Certified Life coach. She assists people in renewing their mental and physical health by combining her training in coaching with her knowledge in preventive health. She offers one on one coaching sessions and group coaching sessions.

Coaching Testimonials

Eric Savage Co-Founder & CEO | Unitus Capital

“Sujata is a fantastic coach. She helped me clearly understand my life’s purpose. Then she taught me techniques to ensure I am always focused on using my time wisely and staying true to my guiding principles.”

Sridhar Ranganathan, Founder and CEO, Shankar Mahadevan Academy | Cloodon Inc

” I had no idea about life coaching until a few months ago. I signed up to understand the intricate dynamics of the same, to figure out and bring closure to things that were nagging realities in my business and self. My experience of coaching with Sujata have been very fruitful and have brought on a sense of focus in various aspects of my dealings with my employees. With that, other aspects in life too are beginning to sort themselves out. ”

Himanshu Dandotiya, Wantrepreneur | Marketing Professional at MICA, Ahmedabad

There’re times when one feels really low and clueless. It was one such phase when I was introduced to Dr Sujata. And then everything changed, almost miraculously – she made me realise my true potential, value my own self and break the barriers that were all within.
During the course of my coaching with her (five months, to be precise), I topped my PhD entrance exam, learnt swimming and made the transition from being an Executive to a Wantrepreneur. None of these was simple as may sound, given the state I was in, physically and mentally.
Dr Sujata did to me what Jambavant did to Hanuman in Ramayan.
