Testimonials

"ĀYU Academy understands, respects, and honors the traditional medical system that Āyurveda is and the emerging profession it’s becoming.
 
No other school compares."

Don't miss the opportunity to learn from Jessica. The info she shares is accessible, gentle and easy to incorporate into life. I should know. She helped me out of a month of sickness in two weeks. Now I feel better than I have in over 10 years.

ĀYU Academy student, 2019
Practicing Nurse in the US

What was critical to me was finding a program that offered authentic Āyurvedic knowledge and training - learning Sanskrit, mastering basic Āyurvedic principles, consistent and regular use of the classical texts and being taught by qualified professionals. I have found all of this and more in ĀYU Academy. The depth and breadth of this program instills confidence that I will be able to practice the science of Āyurveda and its clinical application competently.

ĀYU Academy student, 2021
Studied Ayurveda for 10 years in the US

I have learned more in my first two months at ĀYU Academy than I did in a year and a half of study at my previous school. I am not just regurgitating the material, but thinking and contemplating what I am learning.
