Study to become an Ayurvedic Coach (ASP1) or an Ayurvedic Practitioner (ASP2) from the comfort of your own space – wherever that may be!
What’s the difference between online and in person study?
Not much! All classes will be live-streamed and students will have the ability to ask questions, observe best practices, and be a part of the larger student community. Our online students are welcome to visit the campus in Asheville to attend any classes they choose in person.
A note about online attendance
Just like any school or college course, it is important for prospective students hoping to study online to know that you will be required to attend the live-stream of all classes. Unfortunately, classes will not be recorded. This is to keep the integrity of our training and ensure important questions can be addressed in the immediacy of the class itself.
If you are interested in studying remotely please begin your application process and when you speak with an admissions counselor you can indicate your interest in online study.
