    Is Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design Right For Me?

    The Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design program is extraordinary, but it isn’t right for everyone. Get answers to the most frequently asked questions so you can make the best decision for you.

    Q: What is Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design?
    A: Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design is a 12 month – self directed program – for humans who would like to learn the sacred science of Ayurveda and apply it to each and every aspect of their lives.  This is not a course for professionals – rather a course for anyone who wants to learn, grow, and thrive through the timeless teachings of Ayurveda – however at a professional level of education.

    Q: What’s the difference between the Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design program and the Ayurvedic Health Counselor program?  

    A: While this course covers all of the same subject matter, students will not be held to the same attendence, assignment, or rigid timelines or deadlines.  It’s a more program for anyone who wishes to join a vibrant and connected community – with all the support, but none of the rigid requirements.

    Q: Where does Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design take place?

    A: Everything is online — no travel required.

    You can go through the materials each week as they’re released, or slow things down and work at your own pace.

    Q: How is The Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design program different from other online Ayurvedic Courses?

    A: This program has been evolving for 10 years to be what it is today.  Our school offers education in other professional programs of Ayurveda at the highest level of recognition in the United States and the teachers are bar none the best in the world.

    The Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design program is action-oriented, purpose-driven, and transformative. We deeply care about you — our students. Because the internet is so full of noise, Yoga Veda Institute is designed to be a focused environment where you can learn from the best.

    If it doesn’t work for you? Get 100% of your money back when you show us your completed coursework by 12pm (noon) Eastern U.S. time on, April 21st 2021.

    If you’re traveling or have other life commitments during the live program, it’s not a problem. Do keep in mind that refund eligibility is only through 12pm (noon) Eastern U.S. time on April 21, 2021.

    Q: Who is the course perfect for?

    If you:

    • Identify as a “conscious creative.”
    • Want a conscious based community of support on your journey.
    • Are an independent learner who doesn’t need a lot of handholding to get things done.
    • Trust yourself to experiment and learn by doing.
    • Know in your bones that everything is connected.
    • Are ready to immerse yourself in the timeless, ancient teachings of Ayurveda.
    • Then Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design is perfect for you. 

    Q: Who is Ayurvedic Lifestyle Design NOT for?

    Yoga Veda Institute is not right for everyone. We care about our students’ success and want to make sure you make the right decision for you.

    If you:

    • Prefer 1:1 coaching.
    • Thrive with deadlines.
    • Want to take exams & have all of your assignments reviewed. 
    • Need individualized feedback before taking action.
    • Let small decisions keep you stuck rather than dive in, and do the work.

    Then Yoga Veda Institute may not be the right fit, and that’s OK.
