Who Comes to Study at The Ayurvedic Institute?
Our students are a diverse community from all over the world committed to learning and living Ayurveda. While some are new to Ayurveda, others have had extensive Ayurvedic careers. Some are looking to become certified as Ayurvedic professionals, while others are experienced practitioners continuing to develop, refresh or expand their scope of practice. Many are here to give themselves the gift of personal enrichment and self-healing.
We have many offerings to help serve these diverse objectives. Our full-time certificate students have often made substantial life changes to come study here! They arrive having practiced as medical doctors, career military professionals, farmers, IT professionals, yoga teachers, chiropractors, cooks, herbalists, nurses, philosophers, business executives, lawyers, teachers, and mothers. Our students come from different states and countries and range in age from recent high school graduates to those in their 80s. This school is authorized under federal law to enroll nonimmigrant students. We honor VA benefits for veterans and their dependents and charge the same tuition whether people are using VA benefits or not. Our students are as varied as Ayurveda itself and are connected by a sincere commitment to learning authentic Ayurveda and the willingness to engage in a transformative personal and professional journey.
When education and spiritual development coincide, the reason for study may be obscured until after the lessons are learned. Answering your heart’s call to Ayurveda is something we honor with the most academically rigorous and immersive Ayurvedic program available in the United States — the purpose of your education, like any other, may take time to reveal itself. We welcome you to meet us here!
