A Note about Our Programs

Based on helpful feedback about the classes from our online participants, our Education Team is busy redrafting our course offerings into targeted courses that help your introductory learning, continuing education, and professional development. We are also upgrading these courses to qualify for Continuing Education PACE credits for NAMA members. Of course, you can still attend in-person courses with Vasant Lad, MASc or take our introductory Ayurvedic Home Study Course. In addition, you can always visit our beautiful video library of Vasant Lad’s recorded lectures.
