You’re a Health Practitioner, Mental Health Professional, Yoga Teacher, Massage Therapist, or Health Coach looking for applied skills in a complementary modality to improve the health of your patients and clients.

You want the in-depth knowledge of Ayurveda, delivered in a modern way that suits your busy lifestyle and schedule.

About the Course

Offered as both a live online or independent study program, The Ayurvedic Health Practitioner Training Program delivers rapid instruction in becoming an Ayurvedic Practitioner.

As an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner you’ll be able to offer personal consultations to diagnose and advise on Ayurvedic lifestyle, wellness, and disease prevention practices.

This course is recognized by both the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and the Association of Ayurvedic Professionals of North America (AAPNA)

What you’ll learn:

  • Detect imbalances through Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis and how to correct those imbalances
  • Determine at which level of life an imbalance originates (physical, energetic, mental/emotional, karmic or spiritual)
    and how to intervene with the most efficient and effective methods
  • Assess client lifestyle and routine and educate on a more healthful regimen
  • Teach Ayurvedic cooking and nutrition and compose diet and nutritional recommendations
  • Utilize a Vedic Astrology Chart to understand karmic and planetary influences on the life,
    and make recommendations on how to balance those influences
  • Make herbal recommendations and create herbal formulas
  • Recommend and support purification and detoxification routines (Panchakarma recommendations)
  • Develop aromas to create balance and support wellbeing
  • Experience and teach self-healing skills such as the Healing Breath for chakra clearing, Abhyanga (warm oil massage),
    seasonal cleansing, and using food as medicine
  • Gain the clinical skills necessary to interpret what your client is expressing and put the theory and knowledge of
    what you have learned into practice


As an Ayurvedic school founded by a Western Medical Physician, we offer a modern and comprehensive approach to the course by including a medical perspective, Vedic astrology and spiritual counseling. Over the course of 10 months, you’ll learn how to empower yourself, friends, family, and your community to heal from the inside out, utilizing Ayurveda’s secrets to optimal health and longevity.
The program consists of 750 total hours of training in Ayurveda  – including two 12-week terms, one 8-week term, three 1-week intensives, and one practicum. A minimum of 50 Clinical Case Client Encounters are part of the training reflecting our case-based, clinical approach to learning Ayurveda.

“I loved the strong clinical approach and the way that Paul Dugliss masterfully laid a clear, strong foundation for how to approach clinical work with clients. I’ve become much more aware and in tune with what is happening in my own body in Ayurvedic terms.”
