How do I know if becoming an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner is right for me?
Currently there is no nationally recognized accreditation process for Ayurvedic training or Ayurvedic Education Institutions in the U.S.
The Association of Ayurvedic Professionals of North America (AAPNA) has developed its own requirements for Ayurvedic Training Programs and Schools and New World Ayurveda is a Recognized Ayurveda School (R.A.S.) with that organization. As a recognized Ayurvedic education provider students may use the hours accumulated with the New World Programs to apply to be a Recognized Ayurvedic Practitioner if they are a licensed healthcare provider, massage therapist or yoga instructor. Other students can combine other New World Ayurveda training programs to meet the 1000 hour requirement.
The National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) has developed requirements for “recognizing” Ayurvedic Health Counselors and Ayurvedic Practitioners and allowing them to join their organization at a higher level than general membership. Graduates of the New World Ayurveda Ayurvedic Health Practitioner Training Program can apply for NAMA status if they so choose. However, no recognition by any professional organization is required to practice Ayurveda in the U.S.
New World Ayurveda School is a recognized NAMA professional program provider and is also recognized AAPNA professional program provider. New World Ayurveda School is a licensed private post-secondary school in the state of Maine.
