Mission Statement

Our mission is to train students for the Ayurvedic Health Counselor, Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner, and Master 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 programs include theoretical instruction as well as practical training in both Ayurvedic and Western anatomy, physiology, Ayurvedic pathophysiology, philosophy, nutrition, herbology, psychology, Ayurvedic cooking, Ayurvedic bodywork, subtle energy therapies,  Sanskrit, Yoga, and clinical intern and externships.  Our instructors are classically trained in India and/or have many years of clinical and teaching experience in the US. Students learn specific healing modalities, write papers, and undertake research projects. We specialize in integrating the classical knowledge of Ayurveda and modern Western medicine.
