Learn The Art of Reading the Pulse with Vasant Lad

On May 25 2022, our sister organization, AyurPrana is hosting an online Pulse Reading immersive course – led by Vasant Lad, BAM&S, MASc, founder and director of The Ayurvedic Institute.


Welcome to the fascinating world of the pulse! Through comprehensive lessons from Vasant Lad and other faculty from The Ayurvedic Institute you will come to understand the deep spiritual and philosophical roots of the pulse in Ayurvedic practice while also honing your own practical pulse reading skills and knowledge.

Dive deep into the secrets of the pulse, where you will discover how to read your own pulse and learn to assess the many aspects of your subtle and physical being, such as the organ systems, chakras, and states of mind. In time this skill can then be applied while serving within your own community or practice.

Take this course if…

* You’re a student or practitioner of Ayurveda who is curious about the pulse and want to gain a deeper understanding of this ancient practice.

* You work as a healer or in health care and would like to explore the Ayurvedic insights pulse reading can offer you in your own professional knowledge.

* You’ve studied pulse before with Vasant Lad and want to supplement your experience with weekly live coaching and interactive feedback plus detailed videos and community discussion. Pulse is a never-ending journey, so each time you learn and review the material, you gain a deeper understanding that will further evolve your art and skill.

Ayurveda and Mental Health (3 of 3)


We conclude our series on mental health by exploring the impacts of color and music on our states of being. Sound (Mantra) and color therapy (Vastu + Chakra systems) have been integral practices and treatment options in Ayurveda for thousands of years.

Ayurveda and Mental Health (1 of 3)


Ayurveda acknowledges that we are made up of many aspects, and that the cause of what we are suffering is often a result of more than just our biology or psychology. Through the Ayurvedic lens our mental health is not just a malady of the mind of our entire being – so we need to support the mind, the body, and the spirit.
