Certificate in Ayurvedic Healing

 

The Certificate in Ayurvedic Healing qualification is designed to give participants a strong foundation in the ancient principles and practice of Ayurveda - the traditional medicine of India, which originated over 5,000 years ago, with a focus on practical application in day to day modern life.

Ayurveda places an emphasis on re-establishing balance on all levels through a healthy diet, lifestyle, exercise and body cleansing supporting the health of mind, body and spirit.

Studies within the Certificate in Ayurveda place an emphasis on both theoretical and experiential learning to incorporate this truly holistic healing framework into your life and include Ayurvedic Medicine and Healing to an advanced level, Ayurvedic Psychology and insights into Ayurveda?s sister sciences of Yoga and Vedic astrology.

With a wide range of flexible study options and payment plans available, the Certificate in Ayurvedic Healing provides the perfect opportunity to pursue your passion for Ayurveda, whether that be to apply within your own life to live in balance, or to incorporate into current practice.
