Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?

Everyone begins our program in the same place.  All students begin with our Distance Program.  All of our distance learning programs have the option to continue on our professional track program, if that’s what your heart desires.

What is the difference between an Educator, Therapist, or Yoga Specialist?

An Ayurvedic Wellness Educator (Ayurvedic Health Counselor NAMA) is a trained specialist in diet, nutrition, and lifestyle choices from an Ayurvedic perspective. 

A Clinical Ayurvedic Therapist (Ayurvedic Practitioner NAMA) is a professional with training in preventive healthcare, pathology and disease management and can treat specific manifestations using diet, herbal, and other Ayurvedic therapies.

An Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist (Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist may design, implement, demonstrate, and instruct a yoga therapy program to help with an individual’s healing process within the backdrop of Ayurvedic medicine.

Is your program recognized by the National Ayurvedic Medical Association?

Yes.  Both our Ayurvedic Health Counselor and Ayurvedic Practitioner programs have been reviewed and are recognized by the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.  Graduates of our professional program are awarded a certification of completion and are eligible to sit the National Ayurvedic Medical Association Certification Boards Certification Exam.

While our distance program is not recognized by NAMA, students are awarded a certificate of completion from Yoga Veda Institute. Students are not required to obtain licensure or NAMA certification to practice in any of the 50 states.   Students are qualified at the professional level in all 50 states to practice Ayurveda as a graduate of Yoga Veda Institute.

 

I did get my 200hr yoga teacher certification a few years ago and that had an anatomy component - does that count for my A&P?

The National Ayurvedic Medical Association requires 6 college level credis of Western Anatomy & Physiology.  Most yoga trainings do not meet this. standard. Here’s our Anatomy & Physiology Guide & Provider Information. 

How does the track program work?

Begin your Ayurvedic Wellness Educator program then continue on the path to become a Clinical Ayurvedic Therapist.  At any time on your journey, should you wish to continue to pursue in person study, you may up-level your education to study at the level of Ayurvedic Health Counselor (NAMA) Ayurvedic Practitioner (NAMA), or Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist.

Is enrollment open year round?

New students may enroll at any time throughout the year and will receive instant access to our Foundational program.  Live classes begin at the start of each new term.

Is there a money back guarantee?

Yes.  We offer a 60 day grace period.  If you enroll in the program, attend all live classes, complete required assignments and feel like the program is not a good fit.  We will refund your full tuition balance in full within the 60 day grace period.  After the 60 day grace period there are no refunds for monies paid but students may withdraw without penalty at any time.

How can I expect to complete my Patient Encounter Requirements?

We offer students 3 ways to complete their Patient Encounter (PE) requirements:

Online Clinical Internship: In the  Online Ayurvedic Internship participants come together and present their case study in grand rounds format under the supervision of an approved Ayurvedic Professional.  The first day of the Online Clinical Internship includes an orientation.  

Distance Mentorship: Students can submit their 1×1 patient encounters (25 at the level of AHC and an additional 25 at the level of AP) via the PE Submissions Module and a member of the YVI will review their case study and provide feedback.
