Ayurvedic Educational Studies Overview


The Āyurvedic Educational Studies Program offers the full experience of our Professional Track Program, without the mandatory requirements, exaustive patient encounter requirements or the full commitment of a professional training program.

Students who wish to one day pursue a diploma in Ayurveda will appreciate the ability to fully test out our program, before making the larger time commitment or investment into a 3-4 year more costly professional program.

The Ayurvedic Educational Studies Program gives students the opportunity to take each of our classes, at a relaxed, and easy going pace.  There are no attendance requirements, no assignment submission deadlines, no mandatory testing, or course requirements.

This program empowers students to take control of their own educational path.    Students enjoy all access passes to each one of our live classes and may sit in to observe advanced classes with world class faculty.  

In addition to the subject courses outlined in our Course Catalog, students may meet with our team in our weekly Office Hours to get all of their questions answered. 

Get Started Right Away : Within 24-48 hours after enrollment,  our support team will send you your login information, instructions on accessing your student dashboard, and your first 2 modules, Ayur-Yoga Foundations & Ayurvedic Nutrition.

Download our Course Catalog for a comprehensive overview of the entire program.
