Claude Chouinard


Creating and offering happiness is Claude’s life mission. Living experiences and sharing his passion with others. He aims to show another way of living, one without pressure.

Claude himself went through a growth process, relinquishing his comfortable life in Canada to embark on a year-long spiritual journey in 1992. This led him to live on the road less travelled for almost eight years—along the way Claude realised his dream was to share his experiences with others. He settled down in Bali in 2000, setting up a day spa in Ubud and then launched a retreat centre in 2003. Oneworld Retreats has given people the opportunity to re-evaluate their lives and re-discover their true selves—without pressure and in an unpretentious yet comfortable and enjoyable way. The centre has been visited by thousands of guests since its opening.

After having personally experienced the amazing healing powers of Ayurveda, Claude realized early in 2015 that it was time to make another dream come true and started the process of creating an authentic Ayurvedic panchakarma centre in Tegallalang. In 2016 Oneworld Ayurveda opened its doors and has since welcomed and helped many guests from around the world. Oneworld has become South East Asia’s most respected Ayurvedic centre known for its authenticity and life-changing results.

“Bali has great therapeutic powers to calm and heal with its distinctive people, breathtaking nature, and powerful energy.”

Dr. Ninnu is the knowledgeable and caring Ayurvedic doctor at Oneworld Ayurveda's Panchakarma Bali retreat.

Dr. Ninnu Sudarshan, BAMS


Dr. Ninnu Sudarshan received his degree B.A.M.S. of Ayurveda from the renowned Pankajakasthuri Ayurveda Medical College in Kerala, India, the cradle of Ayurveda. He had the opportunity to interact with many eminent doctors practicing authentic Ayurveda during his studies.

Dr. Ninnu was the Ayurvedic consultant in the Kottakal Ayurveda clinic in Kollam and after that, he worked in the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy in Coimbatore, which is a real melting pot of mentors of Ayurveda. Here he perfected his Ayurvedic diagnostic methods, such as pulse diagnosis (Nadi pareeksha).

He built up his own Panchakarma center in Kollam, as well as a pharmacy producing genuine Ayurvedic medicines, which many hospitals around Kerala use today. He has practised all the Panchakarma therapies and also para surgical methods such as venesection and leech therapy. His passion for the science of Ayurveda and his great desire to help the sick encouraged him to study and practice the Varma techniques that have instant impact on the human body by stimulating the vital nerve points and the plexus.

Dr. Ninnu is highly interested in spirituality and has good knowledge of Yoga Sastra. His treatment plans use yoga, meditation, pranayama and lifestyle recommendations in addition to the Ayurvedic treatments and are, therefore, attractive to the patients as they attain both physiological and psychological wellbeing.
