AYURVEDIC Yoga Therapist


The Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist (AYT) is an Ayurvedic professional with additional training in yoga chitiksa (therapy) beyond that of an Ayurvedic Practitioner. These professionals also practice preventive healthcare and health promotion using diet and lifestyle.

In addition to the subject matter covered in our comprehensive Ayurvedic Professional Program, students who enroll in our Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist program have a mandatory onsite course requirement.  Due to Covid-19 we have postponed all onsite trainings until further notice. 

In addition to the subject courses outlined in our Course Catalog, students can engage in a weekly virtual classroom to complete their 150 patient encounters. Our Clinical Assessment & Internship classes provide students with the opportunity to present their patient encounters in a round table format under the supervision of an Ayurvedic Practitioner. This class is ongoing and meets weekly for the duration of the program.

Student Conduct & Expectations

Above and beyond all subject matter in this program, this is a lifestyle dedicated to mindful, conscious and compassionate living. We expect these primary principles to be applied to all aspects of the students’ learning experience, inside and outside of the classroom.

Due to the nature of the subject of this course and to the high regard we put on living with integrity, honesty, truthfulness and compassion, Yoga Veda Institute expects students to understand and maintain high standards of academic integrity. Breaches of academic integrity are subject to review by the Admin Board and may be grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including requirement to withdraw from the School and suspension of registration privileges or revocation of certification.

Students are expected to conduct themselves responsibly, honestly, and with due consideration for others while enrolled at Yoga Veda Institute as well as in all of their interactions and communications with members of the Yoga Veda community.

Students are expected to take personal responsibility for their own assignment submissions and tracking, knowing class dates and times of class, understanding their personal track program, and requesting curriculum updates as needed.  Yoga Veda Institute expects students to be active and engaged participants. Students registered in a course must attend all classes and participate online, take all exams, and complete all coursework on time.

Students are expected to treat web-conference class meetings as if attending class on campus, which includes behaving professionally, treating others with courtesy and respect, refraining from using profanity or socially offensive language, wearing appropriate clothing, and avoiding inappropriate surroundings. 

Students are required to have and use a camera and microphone when attending web-conference class meetings unless otherwise specified by the instructor.

Students may not join a class while driving or riding in a car. Students are expected to join from a suitable, quiet location, with a device that permits full participation in the class activities. Many courses include activities that cannot adequately be performed on a mobile device.
