Education that Liberates

Since 1978, Mount Madonna has provided theoretical and practical professional education and training in classical systems of Yoga, Āyurveda, and Community.

Each School emphasizes self-learning, service, and continuing life-long learning, as well as teaching the ethical and professional standards necessary for developing high-level, meaningful careers.

College of Āyurveda

Originating within the ancient cultures of the Indus Valley and the Vedic tradition, Āyurveda is the longest surviving, complete system of healthcare in continuous use for 5,000 years! Today, this timeless "science of life" has become a holistic complement to modern medicine and is recognized as such by the National Institute of Health. Choose from three levels of professional training.
