Ayurveda courses

These are 5 stand-alone immersion Ayurveda courses which can be completed individually (33 hours each), or combined with a conversion course to create a further qualification (e.g. Health Advisor). Each Ayurveda course takes place online over 3 months and focuses on understanding yourself and your close community. Each of the courses is restricted to 23 participants, ensuring a close-knit community and fully interactive webinars.

All of these Ayurveda courses include:

  • A comprehensive syllabus covering everything you need to know to start applying Ayurveda’s wisdom to your daily life
  • Engaging monthly content with assessments and case studies
  • Knowledge direct from the classical Ayurvedic texts combined with modern interpretation, supported by research where possible

  • Access to a collaborative learning community to share ideas, practical tips and learning. With 23 partipants per course, you will have the opportunity to be part of a close-knit community.
  • A health diary to enable you to record your experiences – not all advice will work for everyone so what is really best for you?
