Mission Statement

OUR MISSION is to train students for the Diploma – Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counselor, Certificate – Ayurvedic Practitioner, and Masters of Arts - Ayurveda through professional, academic and internship programs. Our goal is to provide students with the finest classical training in the principles and methods of Ayurveda, preparing students for professional careers in Ayurveda.

Originating in the ancient Vedic scriptures of India, the wisdom and practical health training of Ayurveda is a holistic complement to western medicine. The College of Ayurveda was formed to meet the increasing demand for trained practitioners of alternative and complementary healthcare in the U.S., specifically Certified Ayurvedic Practitioners. Our program includes theoretical instruction as well as practical training in herbal medicine making, Ayurvedic cooking, Ayurvedic bodywork, and Yoga, and clinical internships. Our instructors are classically trained in India and/or have many years of clinical and teaching experience. Students have opportunities for personal experience in intuitive and spiritual aspects of Ayurveda and write papers and research projects. We specialize in integrating Ayurveda and Western Medicine.
