Certification & Titles Upon Graduation
Upon successful completion of the full program, including the Gurukul preceptorship in-person study, students will earn distinguished titles reflecting their level of expertise:
- Ayurvedic Health Counselor: For students completing 600 hours of study, including in-person requirements.
- Ayurvedic Practitioner: For those who complete 1500 hours of study, encompassing all in-person training.
These titles signify a comprehensive understanding of Ayurvedic principles and practices and qualify graduates to sit for the NAMACB board exam.
Upon successful completion of our program's coursework, students who forgo the in-person Gurukul preceptorship will be awarded a "Certificate in Ayurvedic Studies," either for 600 or 1500 hours, depending on the program track chosen. While this certification does not confer the specific titles of Ayurvedic Health Counselor or Ayurvedic Practitioner, it represents a comprehensive education in Ayurvedic principles and practices.
Graduates of the Ayurvedic Studies program can take pride in knowing that their education is held to the high standards reviewed and recognized for quality within the Ayurvedic community. This certificate is a testament to their dedication and expertise, allowing them to work and practice confidently in the field of Ayurveda.
For those seeking to attain the formal titles and eligibility to sit for the NAMACB board exam, we recommend completing the in-person requirements. However, the "Certificate in Ayurvedic Studies" is a significant credential, reflecting a rigorous and complete education that empowers graduates to contribute meaningfully to the field of Ayurvedic Medicine.
Anatomy & Physiology Co-requisite:
The Ayurvedic program requires students to complete 6 college-level credits, typically recognized as Anatomy and Physiology I and Anatomy and Physiology II in the USA. This equates to a combined total of 90 hours of classroom instruction from an accredited institution, whether through a community college or virtual campus. These credits must be explicitly earned in courses titled "Anatomy & Physiology" at the collegiate level.
To fulfill the co-requisite for the Ayurvedic program, students must provide official documentation—either a certificate or transcripts—confirming the completion of 6 college-level credits or 90 hours of classroom instruction in Anatomy & Physiology. This documentation should clearly state the student's name, the specific course title as "Anatomy & Physiology," and the credits or hours completed, from an accredited institution.
Please note, completion of a Yoga Training Course, even if it includes content on Anatomy & Physiology, does not meet this pre/co-requisite. Fulfilling this requirement within the program's timeframe is essential for successful graduation.
At our institute, we prioritize live, interactive web conference classes, diverging from the common approach of other schools that offer up to 600 hours of pre-recorded "asynchronous" content in their Ayurvedic Practitioner programs. We believe in the value of real-time collaboration and instruction, which is why the majority of our classes are offered live. However, recognizing the need for flexibility, we provide students with the option to select up to 600 hours of the Ayurvedic Accreditation Commission (AAC) approved allowance for asynchronous study, to be used at their discretion. This empowers our students to tailor their learning experience to fit their individual schedules and learning styles, all while maintaining the high standards of our live educational offerings.
Please check the Course Catalog for specific class schedule, dates, and class times.

Gurukul Clinical Preceptorship
At Yoga Veda Institute, we revere the Gurukul tradition, where the sacred bond between a preceptor and student is central to the transmission of Ayurveda's ancient wisdom. This mentorship is more than an educational exchange; it is the heartbeat of tradition, nurturing the spiritual core of Ayurvedic practice.
Through this time-honored approach, we offer a genuine Ayurvedic education that weaves the threads of age-old knowledge with the vibrant potential of modern application. As you journey with us, you are shepherded by devoted preceptors who are not just educators but custodians of Ayurveda's enduring legacy, dedicated to fostering the healers of tomorrow.
For our students, the preceptorship is an integral component of their educational experience. Ayurvedic Health Counselors are required to complete 180 hours, while Ayurvedic Practitioners must fulfill 540 hours of preceptorship. These hours are a portal to hands-on learning and a deeper immersion into the practical aspects of Ayurveda.
Options for engaging with a preceptor are diverse:
- Volunteer Positions: Offer your service in exchange for invaluable learning and mentorship.
- Paid Positions: Work in a professional environment, gaining experience while earning compensation.
- Intensive Courses: Participate in structured programs that combine mentorship with clinical practice.
It's important to highlight that preceptorship is not a requirement for students not pursuing NAMACB board certification, which includes many of our international students. These students have the option to complete the full curriculum and hours of study through our comprehensive weekly clinical internship class, conducted on our virtual campus. This adaptable approach ensures that our program meets the diverse needs and goals of our global student community, while adhering to personal and regional educational objectives.
For a detailed understanding of our preceptorship requirements and the rich educational pathways available, delve into our course catalog, where every step of your Ayurvedic journey is mapped out with clarity and purpose.

Designed for Success
Yoga Veda Institute’s Distance Learning Program caters to students seeking the flexibility that distance education provides, free from the constraints of location and rigid schedules. While this independence is crucial for many, success in this program often hinges on a structured approach to learning.
To thrive in the YVI Distance Program, it typically suits students who:
1. Excel at self-directed learning,
2. Can effectively manage their studies independently, and
3. Have the opportunity to engage in clinical practice within their local area or are willing to travel for a modest amount of time.
Freedom of Location
Students at Yoga Veda Institute have the freedom to pursue their academic studies from anywhere across the globe. Essential requirements include reliable internet access (with high-speed connectivity strongly advised), along with the necessary tools for word processing and printing capabilities.
Students at Yoga Veda Institute can undertake their clinical training under the guidance of an approved local preceptor or for non certificate seeking students, through our interactive online internship program. It’s advisable for students to consider potential clinical training opportunities before enrolling in the YVI program. For those unable to travel, alternative pathways are offered, such as transferring clinical hours from another accredited institution, collaborating with a pre-approved faculty preceptor, or completing the program as a non-certificate seeking student.
Students enjoy the flexibility to progress through both academic and clinical components of their program on their own schedule. While courses have set start times throughout the year, we understand the need for some students to take additional time. Although we encourage completing courses within the designated trimester, extensions are possible when needed. Our dedicated instructors, preceptors, and mentors are committed to providing personalized support, ensuring every student successfully achieves their goals and navigates the program effectively.
Major Maps are course completion schedules that students develop with the YVI Student Advisor. Major Maps allow students to see what course work must be completed within each trimester to meet the student’s graduation goal date. Major Maps give structure to the flexibility of YVI course work.
Financial Options & Incentives
At YVI, students can comfortably manage their tuition without the pressure of an upfront lump sum. We provide extended payment plans to ensure our programs remain within reach for all aspiring Ayurvedic students.
Your tuition covers all courses you enroll in at the start of each trimester, and you have the freedom to choose the number of credits that align with your schedule each term.
The Ayurvedic Health Counselor program spans 1 year over 4 trimesters, with the option to extend to 3 years without incurring additional fees. The Ayurvedic Practitioner program is structured to be completed within 2 years, or 8 trimesters, but students have the flexibility to spread their studies over 6 years, or 18 trimesters, at no extra cost.
For those who choose to pay the entire program fee at enrollment, we offer a substantial Pay In Full discount. Rest assured, there are no hidden costs. Additional charges will only apply if a student exceeds their program’s maximum duration, in which case they will be billed at the current rate for each additional trimester of enrollment.
Students have the flexibility to enroll in as many or as few credits as they prefer each trimester. Tuition is comprehensive, so those opting for more credits can accelerate their progress through the program.
At YVI, our academic calendar is structured into three trimesters to optimize learning and progress:
- Winter Trimester: January through March
- Spring Trimester: April through June
- Fall Trimester: October through December
Enrollment is open year-round, with live classes kicking off at the start of each trimester. This schedule not only motivates students to complete their courses within each term but also facilitates enrolling in subsequent courses seamlessly. Additionally, the synchronized start dates for new courses enhance the effectiveness of student study groups, fostering a collaborative learning environment.
YVI takes pride in offering personal coaching, a distinctive feature of our distance learning program. Enrolled students benefit from ongoing access to a dedicated student advisor. These advisors assist students in navigating any obstacles to progress, offer guidance on tailoring their Major Map for success, and provide steadfast support and accountability throughout their academic journey.
YVI is attuned to the unique challenges of distance education, such as the potential for feeling isolated. We actively counteract this by fostering vibrant learning communities and facilitating peer-led support groups. The creation of peer affinity groups nurtures relationships and fosters a culture of mutual accountability. With YVI, you can access a connected and supportive Ayurvedic educational experience from anywhere with an internet connection.

Graduates of Yoga Veda Institute's certification program are well-positioned to become board-certified practitioners, enabling them to consult with clients legally within the United States.
It's crucial to acknowledge, though, that Ayurveda's legal status is under continuous development outside of its birthplace, India. Regulations governing the practice of Ayurveda vary from one country to another. We advise those practicing internationally to diligently research and adhere to the local laws and guidelines specific to Ayurvedic practice in their respective countries. Consulting with local authorities or national Ayurvedic organizations can provide clarity and guidance.
Staying abreast of the evolving legal framework for Ayurveda ensures that you can confidently and lawfully offer its profound benefits to those seeking holistic health solutions in your community.

What is the Importance of Accreditation?
In the competitive realm of education, accreditation is not just a badge of honor—it's a beacon of quality and a testament to an institution's commitment to excellence. However, the landscape is varied, and not all accreditations carry the same weight.
Some institutions may showcase accreditations that lack rigorous oversight or even tout credentials of questionable legitimacy. This is where discernment is key, especially when considering the significance of accreditation from esteemed bodies like the Ayurvedic Accreditation Commission (AAC).
Accreditation: The Benchmark of Excellence
Accreditation is the result of a voluntary, rigorous review process that educational institutions undergo to ensure they meet comprehensive standards of quality education. It's a seal of approval that signals to students, employers, and the wider community that the institution adheres to high-quality educational practices and is committed to ongoing improvement.
AAC: A Standard of Trust
The AAC is a pillar in the Ayurvedic educational community, recognized for its stringent accreditation standards. The AAC's exhaustive review process examines all facets of an institution's offerings—from its curriculum and faculty credentials to its learning resources and institutional support. This ensures that AAC-accredited programs are not only up to par with current educational standards but are also poised to prepare students for professional success in Ayurveda.
The Pitfalls of Unverified Accreditations
On the flip side, there are institutions with unverified accreditations that could potentially mislead students. These may involve minimal oversight or none at all, where the "accreditation" is granted upon payment rather than a substantive evaluation of standards. Such practices dilute the value of accreditation and potentially jeopardize the quality of education delivered.
Ongoing Assessment: The Heart of Accreditation
True accreditation involves continuous reassessment and renewal. Organizations like AAC don't just assess once; they maintain a cycle of regular reviews to ensure institutions continue to meet evolving educational standards and industry demands. This ongoing scrutiny fosters institutions' growth and adaptability, ensuring that the education provided keeps pace with the dynamic field of Ayurveda.
Why It Matters for Your Future
The implications of accreditation extend far beyond the classroom. Graduating from an AAC-accredited program can significantly enhance your professional credibility and open doors to employment opportunities that would otherwise remain closed. Employers and professional bodies often look for this accreditation as proof of a candidate's competent background.
As you navigate your educational choices, remember that AAC accreditation is more than a formality—it's a promise of quality and an investment in your future as a professional in the world of Ayurveda. So choose wisely, with the assurance that an AAC-accredited education is designed to propel you toward success and fulfillment in your Ayurvedic practice.

What is Yoga Veda's academic approach?
Ayurveda's recent rise in popularity reflects an increasing global shift towards holistic health and wellness. In response, numerous institutions now offer Ayurvedic education, each with its unique approach. Some assert a narrow focus on Ayurveda’s medicinal aspects is superior, criticizing institutions like Yoga Veda Institute for integrating yoga, spirituality, astrology, and Hindu philosophy into our curriculum. However, such a perspective overlooks the holistic essence of Ayurveda.
Yoga Veda Institute’s Comprehensive Approach:
Ayurveda is inherently holistic, encompassing the intricate balance of body, mind, and spirit, and our relationship with the cosmos. Reducing Ayurveda to merely its medicinal component overlooks the rich tapestry of holistic knowledge that is essential for a thorough understanding of this ancient science.
Embracing Interdisciplinary Synergy:
At Yoga Veda Institute, we recognize the synergistic relationship between Ayurveda and disciplines like yoga, astrology, and Hindu philosophy:
Yoga and Ayurveda: These sister sciences offer complementary perspectives on health. Our curriculum integrates yoga to deepen the understanding of the mind-body connection and promote healing practices that align with Ayurvedic principles.
Astrology: Far from mere fortune-telling, astrology in the context of Ayurveda offers insights into an individual’s constitution and health predispositions, enabling personalized Ayurvedic care.
Hindu Philosophy: The philosophical underpinnings of Ayurveda are rooted in Hindu thought, which informs the ethical, moral, and spiritual dimensions of healing practices.
The assertion that a broad curriculum leads to mediocrity is a misconception. At Yoga Veda Institute, our curriculum is meticulously structured to integrate these disciplines without sacrificing depth or academic rigor. Our students graduate with a rich understanding of Ayurveda's multifaceted nature, well-prepared to apply this knowledge holistically.
Holistic Understanding and Application:
While some may prefer an exclusively clinical focus, the true power of Ayurveda lies in its holistic application. A comprehensive education in Ayurveda, enriched with yoga, astrology, and philosophy, equips our graduates with a profound toolkit that enhances their practice and offers a well-rounded approach to health and wellness.
At Yoga Veda Institute, we are committed to honoring the depth and breadth of Ayurveda. Our graduates emerge not only as skilled practitioners but as custodians of a tradition that harmonizes the physical with the spiritual, the individual with the universal—a holistic vision for a healthy and balanced life.

Here are key considerations to help you choose an institution that will provide a rich and authentic learning experience in Ayurveda:

Confirm the school's credentials, the legitimacy of the accrediting bodies, the experience of the faculty, and the depth of the programs offered.

It should encompass not only the core principles of Ayurveda but also offer extensive insights into its diagnostic and treatment modalities, pharmacology, nutrition, and practical application. The best programs blend rigorous academic inquiry with hands-on practice.
Qualified and Experienced Faculty: Instructors should be more than academics; they should be seasoned practitioners with a wealth of clinical experience.
