In 1979, Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, Ayurvedic Physician, was told by his teacher that he would bring Ayurveda to the west…with decades of dedicated effort, hard work, teaching, traveling, and consulting, Vasant Lad and the Ayurvedic Institute have evolved into what it is today—a leader in Ayurvedic education and training acknowledged throughout the world.
We are proud of our accomplishments and enhancements in our educational training of Ayurvedic practitioners. We believe the programs we offer are the finest available today. We offer support services and continuing educational opportunities for our graduates and for those leading an Ayurvedic lifestyle that includes authentic panchakarma, the cleansing program of Ayurveda, products and herbs as well as seminars, books, and our journal.
These are designed to help you—our clients and students—to enhance your own lives through the universal application of Ayurvedic healing. We believe the efforts that we all make together towards self-healing will continue to expand the healing benefits of Ayurveda throughout the world.
With more focus on clinical application of Ayurveda in medical settings and research of Ayurvedic methods, our goal is an integrative approach found by working with medical professionals to bring western and Ayurvedic methods together in a cohesive integrative healing practice that educates the client, enabling them to take charge of their own health and wellness. We invite your continued support of our mission and want you to know that we value your contribution.
We are pleased to be the school of choice by the majority of people. Our goal is to give true health care back to the world through the science of Ayurveda, which enables you to take care of your own health. We offer many educational opportunities that facilitate this.

Student Scholarship Fund
The Ayurvedic Institute Scholarship Program is intended for students who have proven to have the academic attitude and aptitude to complete the program the student is applying for but do not have the financial means to pay in full for the completion of the full program. The scholarship provides $1,000 toward the 3rd trimester’s tuition to an ASP certificate student who meets the necessary requirements, which is discussed during the 2nd trimester. This scholarship has no cash value. It can be used only for financial assistance toward tuition or books.
Vasanta Institute of Ayurveda
It is a non-profit sister Institute to the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque. Although legally an independent entity, it is directed by Dr. Lad and the staff here in Albuquerque. The facility offers advanced education and clinical training in Ayurveda through classroom instruction and internship, providing free healthcare to the local village and an expanded panchakarma program with modern facilities for westerners.
Donations go toward maintaining and improving operations and facilities.
