The Ayurvedic Institute is Moving!
Hello dear friends,
The Ayurvedic Institute is moving from Albuquerque, NM, to a new campus in Asheville, NC. The next class cohort in Fall 2022 will be hosted on the new campus.
Here is a short video message explaining how we got here – and where we are heading.
We are excited to be able to realize Vasant Lad’s dream for a community centered around the principles and practices of Ayurveda. For the last few years, the team leading the Institute has been tasked with finding a location for this community. After scouting regions across the continental U.S., Vasant Lad has chosen Asheville, NC, as the home for our new campus.
Come study with us in Asheville!
