our story


Yoga Veda Institute began as a small project inside an Ayurvedic Panchakarma Detox & Retreat center in 2010 that had been in operation for over 20 years. The Ayurvedic center was a popular destination location of international yoga teacher training programs from all over the world. It was during these month long intensive training courses that the directors of the Ayurvedic center really got to know the teachers and the students taking part in these programs.

They noticed that that there was a huge gap between what was being taught in the training programs and the lifestyles that were being promoted, the authentic spiritual teachings and the depth of the study. Something was drastically missing from EVERY SINGLE ONE of these training programs. And that something was really easy to see, it was AYURVEDA.

Ayurveda has always been at the heart of our teachings, and we know the importance for professionals.

Fast forward to today…

We have created one of the only holistic Ayurvedic Medicine meets Yoga Therapy programs in the world today that follows the curriculum guidelines set out by both the International Association of Yoga Therapists and the National Ayurvedic Medical Association while still adhering to the traditional spiritual & philosophical roots.

Our students are not only teaching better classes with confidence but they are inspiring people to live more healthy, connected, heart centered lives with the tools that Yoga and Ayurveda provide. Yoga Veda’s Alumni are from all corners of the globe. They are inspiring their communities on a path to total well being.

Most importantly, they are making the world a better place, one beautiful soul at a time.

Are you ready embark on a path less traveled?

We provide students with courses covering a range programs in Traditional Hatha Yoga that incorporates the timeless teachings of Ayurveda.  Ranging from our online foundation course to our advanced programs in Ayurvedic Medicine & Yoga Therapy.

We offer a journey of personal transformation with an amazingly supportive community of people from all over the world who come together to learn, to love, to grow and to heal. 

We offer students a broad based scope of knowledge beyond asana and into the less explored world of Ayurveda and Yogic Philosophy as a spiritual practice.

Yoga Veda was born out of the growing demand in the global yoga community for higher educational standards. We are fully committed to the continued growth of each one of our students.

We’re here to…

:: change the way that yoga therapy is taught and practiced. Rather than a one size fits all mentality, we are offering a unique approach that takes each individual into account using the time tested guidelines clearly provided in Ayurvedic teachings.

:: say enough to low educational standards and YES to higher level training programs.

:: encourage existing yoga students to move beyond the current standards & limiting paradigm and into a world of yoga and Ayurveda as a spiritual study.
