With the launch of the new National Ayurvedic Medical Association Certification Board (NAMACB) begins an exciting time for the Ayurvedic Profession in the United States and beyond.  

Students are now required to obtain a NAMACB certification which means that students have demonstrated entry-level competencies in their area of practice by completing a NAMA approved course and passing a rigorous certification exam AND is held accountable for obtaining ongoing training as a professional through continuing education.

Certification and Accreditation is an important milestone for the Ayurvedic Profession in the USA and there has never been a better time to obtain a diploma in the USA in Ayurvedic Medicine.

At this time, there are three levels of certification offered by the NAMACB:

Level 1 :: Ayurvedic Health Counselor – Ayurvedic professional trained to focus on preventive health care as well as health promotion with a specific focus on diet and lifestyle.  Download the Study Guide here >>>

Level 2 :: Ayurvedic Practitioner – Ayurvedic professional with training in preventive health care, nutrition, lifestyle pathology & disease management.  Download the Study Guide here >>>

Level 3 :: Ayurvedic Doctor – Ayurvedic professional who has a specialized training in Ayurveda with an overview training in conventional medicine to provide a comprehensive Ayurvedic healthcare to their patients.  Exam coming soon.

As Yoga Veda moves towards accreditation in 2019, we will be shifting the focus of our program into an online, accredited, learning platform that not only meets but exceeds the standards set by both the State of Florida, and the National Ayurvedic Medical Association.
