Through hands-on practice we learn to embody the richness and sacredness of Ayurvedic body therapies.
Panchakarma Technician Program — Hands-on Ayurvedic Body Therapies
We will NOT be offering these programs in the Fall season of 2020 for the safety of all: students, staff and clients. We encourage you to stay safe and take care of each other. We will keep you posted as our programs come to fruition.
As a therapist, we hold sacred space for transformation and healing to occur.
