4-Year Practitioner Program

Ayurveda Practitioner Studies & Nutrition and Lifestyle Counselor program

Great news! Starting in September, we’re relaunching our Ayurveda Practitioner Studies. Over the past months, we’ve revamped the program in several aspects, and it now features a partly modular structure in the new style. Additionally, it’s now possible to obtain the title ‘Nutrition & Lifestyle Counselor’ within two years with a well-rounded program and diploma.

This study program aims to educate ‘Ayurveda Practitioners’ and ‘Nutrition & Lifestyle Counselors’ at a high level and in a professional manner. It does so, to prepare for a profession in which you can support others in their health with self-confidence and pride! 

The program is unique in set-up and contains a vast amount of high-standard study material. Students will be studying a nice blending of this science based on the classical concepts of ‘engineering our physiology’, and at the same time due attention is given to the role of awareness in what we call ‘Life’. Both are important to truly understand Ayurveda and to be able to work with this science in a way that is both professionally solid, and profound.

Our four-year program, which is training students to become Ayurveda Practitioners, is accredited at a bachelor level. The students who choose for the ‘Nutrition & Lifestyle Counselor’ track are taken up in the bachelor level program for two years and will finish the program with a ‘Nutrition & Lifestyle Counselor’ diploma.

Price: Information will be provided soon, price is per study year & costs for food/board residential are not included;

Dates: The program starts in September in modules on Fridays and Saturdays. Dates follow soon.
